ATLANTA – The Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA), the preeminent non-varsity league in the country, is excited to announce that PEARL will be sponsoring the player of the game for the seven Invitational tournament games this May.
The 2021 MCLA Invitational will take place from May 12-14 in Round Rock, Texas, and will feature eight teams selected by a 17-man selection committee. While there will be no fans allowed at the venue, all seven games will be streamed live (and archived) at the Watch Party link.
PEARL will be the official ball of the Invitational.
“We are very thankful to have PEARL as a sponsor of our league,” said MCLA president Ken Lovic. “They are always ready to step up and recognize our student-athletes and we couldn’t be more appreciative.”
PEARL Player of the Game will be selected at the conclusion of every game in Round Rock and will receive a prize package compliments of PEARL.
“We’ve been long time supporters of the Men's Collegiate Lacrosse Association,” said Erin Hanson, Guardian CEO and co-founder. “We’re very excited for the players to have the opportunity to compete at the tournament this year.”
