LIU Post Lacrosse Teams Clean Up Local Beach in Bayville

Bayville, N.Y. – This past weekend, the LIU Post men’s and women’s lacrosse teams capped off the summer by lending a hand in cleaning up Centre Island Beach in Bayville.

The 12 student-athletes spent two-and-a-half hours picking up trash and tossing the garbage bags into containers.

“Cleaning up the beaches in Bayville helped our teammates learn about environmental sustainability,” said Pioneers’ women’s lacrosse senior defender/midfielder Kaitlin Gaghan (North Massapequa, N.Y.). “We loved having the opportunity to help the community and stay involved.”MLAX_WLAX
