For Donnie

3rd Annual Lax for Donnie Memorial Tournament




The Lax for Donnie tournament is not about wins and losses, it’s about remembering and spreading the name of a co-founder of the Rowan Men’s Club Lacrosse team.

During homecoming week in October of 2007, Donnie was murdered in an on-campus incident, his case remains unsolved.  

Donald ‘Donnie’ Farrell, was a 19-year-old Rowan University sophomore. He grew up and lived in Boonton, NJ and played lacrosse for the Mountain Lakes Lakers. He was also the Co-founder of the Mens Club Lacrosse team. 

Rowan is hosting the 3rd Annual Lax for Donnie Memorial Tournament, taking place on Sunday, March 26th on the Rowan IM Field and Stadium Field.


In Memory of Donnie the Rowan Club Lacrosse team started an Annual tournament to raise funds for a scholarship in his name. This year the tournament has grown to eight schools: Rowan, Drexel, Atlantic Cape Community College, Stevenson, Penn State, TCNJ, Dickinson, and Cabrini. Throughout the day there will be thirteen games, including a championship game to close out the day.

Come join the Men's Club Lacrosse team this Sunday from 8am - 5pm to remember and honor Donnie Farrell as well as support and cheer on Rowan as they take the field.
