With four seconds left in the men’s lacrosse game against former No. 3 Cornell, attackman Samuel Hurster ’14 sent the ball flying into the net to clinch the win for the Bears on a pass from co-captain Parker Brown ’12. Hurster’s goal not only ensured the win, but also kept Bruno in contention for the Ivy League playoffs. Hurster’s last-minute goal was his third of the afternoon and his 27th of season, making him the season high-scorer for the Bears. For his heroics and consistently strong play throughout the season, The Herald has named Hurster Athlete of the Week.
