National Title Graphic

It was a fluke, so many lacrosse people said 15 years ago, when a tiny school from the Southeast won an NCAA Division II national championship.

But two years later, Limestone did it again.

And on Tuesday afternoon, this latest group of Saints marched into a news conference and sat in front of four trophies that were on display. They added the last one Sunday, when they beat Le Moyne, 9-6, in Philadelphia for a second straight title.

Les Mis

Limestone College Theatre and Gaffney Little Theatre will present “Les Misérables” during an 8-show run in June.

The production will take place at Limestone Theatre, located at 130 Leadmine Street in Gaffney, on June 18-21 and June 24-27. All shows are at 7 p.m., except the one on June 21 that will begin at 3 p.m.

The nationally top-ranked Limestone College (19-1) men's lacrosse team advanced to its second straight NCAA Division II National Championship Game and third title game appearance over the past four years with a 16-6 semifinal win over No. 5 Lake Erie College (15-3) on Sunday, May 17, at Saints Field.

Alumni Awards

Limestone College recently recognized its Outstanding Alumni during a banquet at Stephenson Dining Hall on its main campus in Gaffney.

The award winners included Patricia Williams Willis, Alumnus Of The Year; Amanda A. Knowles, Service To Community; Paul William Fleming, Service To College; Frances Martin Bush, Service To Education; Bryan Franklin Armstrong, Young Alumnus Of The Year; and Dr. Barbara B. Smith, Service To Church.

Lockwood Retirement

For her accomplishments as a scholar, teacher, and administrator, Dr. Anne Lockwood was granted the status of Professor Emerita of English during the May 7 commencement ceremony at Fullerton Auditorium.

“Dr. Lockwood has always demonstrated outstanding service to her students, her colleagues, and to the College community overall,” Limestone President Dr. Walt Griffin said of the retiring professor. “For 16 years, she has been beloved and revered in the academic setting at Limestone College and she will be missed immensely. We wish her all the best in her retirement.”
