The list above is symbolic of the month that the Lake Forest College Football team has had. 20 members of the football team participated on the Club Rugby teams annual trip to Northern Illinois for the Chicago Area Rugby Football Union Championships. The Foresters had narrowly missed out on the championship the last three years. The Foresters DOMINATED the entire tournament, outscoring their opponents 105-13.

Sophomore Dominick Campagana was entered in the Mr. CASAnova contest, that was sponsored by the Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority. The annual event is a fundraiser for the Court Appointed Special Advocates. The Male "beauty" Pageant is a highlight of Greek Week on campus. Traditionally, the Football player struggles in the competition, but this year the tradition was broken. Campagna came away with the title of Mr. CASAnova. His skit, was ranked the "most hilarious" of the night by many in attendance, and his "swimsuit" portion was quite the talk of the campus. See the story behind the Theta's support of CASA here:

The Lake Forest College Women's Lacrosse Team had their first home game ever on Tuesday March 29th against Northwestern University. A crowd that included nearly 40 football players watched the Foresters defeat the Big Ten institution 13-8.

Nine members of the football team suited up for the LFC Club Lacrosse Team as they took on the University of Chicago and University of Wisconsin in their first conference games of the year. They beat Chicago in the morning session, but fell to Wisconsin (the defending league champions) in the second game. Freshman Eddie Dobernig scored his first career goal ever against Wisconsin.

For the Tri-Delta Sorority Spotlight of Talent, the football team was well represented. A group of seven Foresters performed their "remix" version of Black and "Red" (a spin off of Black and Yellow). In addition to the rap performance, freshman Robert King performed a hip-hop dance routine. In a close battle, the Forester Football Rap team took top honors.

As the Foresters continue to embrace the opportunities to be more than football players on our campus, we look upon them with great pride in their accomplishments, and their commitment to growing our campus community and spirit.
