     Title: Top Clam Alumni: Week of 3/5
Business keeps on picking up with D3 action getting into full swing

We have made it a weekly tradition to scour the college lacrosse news and game reports to see how our Clam Alumni are doing at the next level.  Check back each week here and follow these reports on facebook to see how the Clam family is faring. AND PLEASE NOTE: while we do our best at compiling this list, it is almost a certainty that we miss some strong performances, particularly from defensive players. To this end, please feel free to contact us at either jbwalker7@hotmail.com or tmpeters12@hotmail.com if you had a strong performance you'd like others to know about!
