Haverford donates check to Cancer Center

Proceeds from the 2011 Checking for Cancer Lacrosse Tournament were donated to the Kimmel Cancer Center in Philadelphia on Dec. 9. The tournament was held on April 16, hosted by Haverford School. Participating teams included girls' squads from Baldwin, Friends' Central, Agnes Irwin, and Germantown Friends. Boys' teams included Haverford School, Darien (Conn.), Radnor, Downingtown East, Georgetown Prep (Md.), Delbarton (N.J.), Conestoga, Greenwich (Conn.), La Salle, Wilton (Conn.), Chatham (N.J.), and Fairfield Prep (Conn.). The event was created in 2009 by Haverford School coach John Nostrant, a prostate cancer survivor, and one of his college teammates, Georgetown Prep coach Kevin Giblin. Giblin is a colon cancer survivor. Nostrant and Giblin were roommates at Washington College and linemates on the lacrosse field. They served together as assistant coaches for the United States U-19 men's team in 2008 when it captured the International World Federation championship in British Columbia.
