Sports Digest (Aug. 8): Westminster College to establish Matt Hearn Memorial Lacrosse Scholarship

Westminster College in Salt Lake City will honor the legacy of alumnus Matt Hearn (Dulaney) through the establishment of the Matt Hearn Memorial Lacrosse Scholarship. Hearn, 26, who was working as a marketing consultant for a television station, died July 13 after a rock climbing accident near Salt Lake City. "Matt came to us from the lacrosse hotbed of Baltimore and brought a passion for the sport and a selfless attitude to the squad," coach Mason Goodhand said. "He quickly established himself as a leader on the field and a loyal friend when off it. This scholarship fund is our way of creating a lasting remembrance of this young man, his family and the impact he had on all around him when he became a Griffin."
