Baltimore City Lacrosse Players Posthumously Honored at Lacrosse Facility

Sparks, MD– Two former Baltimore City lacrosse players were honored Saturday afternoon at the US Lacrosse field in Sparks Maryland. Officials recognized City College’s Ray Glasgow III and National Academy Foundation’s Devin Cook, who were senselessly murdered. Family members were in attendance and received plaques, in addition to bricks that were installed at the facility with the players names. The ceremony was apart of daylong celebration of Baltimore City lacrosse. The event included several youth games, Hampton University versus Bethany College, and Mervo taking on City College.

The event’s finale, between 2-time defending champions Mervo and City College, had the crowd on their heels the entire game. There were 7 ties and a number of lead changes before City was able to pull out the 9-8 victory in overtime. 2020 Attackman Alton Foreman provided the game winning goal several minutes within the extra period.

Mervo’s loss is the second for the defending Baltimore City champions this season. Mustangs’ Emmanuel Wheele put on a stellar performance scoring three goals, including the game tying goal to force overtime.
