“The Athletics Banquet is one night where our students get to have some fun and be honored,” said Sara Quatrocky, associate athletic director. “I am really looking forward to seeing our alumni inducted into the Hall of Fame and seeing the new videos that our communications department has made.”

“I am definitely looking forward to the athletics banquet this year,” said Cristina Llorens, senior. “It will be bittersweet for me knowing that it is my last one ever, but I know that my teammates and all of the athletes here at Lynn work hard season long. It will be nice to see them being rewarded for it.”
