“The Bob Kemp Lacrosse Classic goes beyond the scholarship fund it raises to support a student at the Washington Jesuit Academy.  It gives a young man the opportunity to receive a quality, independent middle-school education, and it helps us remember the legacy of Bob Kemp, a man who knew that a great education can take you far in life.”

– Bill Whitaker
Washington Jesuit Academy, President

“The Bob Kemp Lacrosse Classic provided us with a great experience for our guys, a tough competition for our team and a  unique opportunity to contribute to a transformative school… check, check, and check. The perfect way to complete our fall season.”

– Kevin Corrigan
University of Notre Dame, Head Lacrosse Coach

“Simply being associated with the Bob Kemp Classic is an honor for the Limestone Lacrosse Program. Our level of excitement could not be higher leading into this event… The opportunity to compete with Coach Tierney and his Denver Pioneers, while daunting, is going to be a great experience for our team and Coaches. Most importantly is the fact that we can do our part, however small, to help a young man receive an education at the Washington Jesuit Academy in Mr. Kemp’s name.” 

– J.B. Clarke
Limestone College, Head Lacrosse Coach
