CHESTNUT HILL, Massachusetts ( – Fifteen Atlantic Coast Conference student-athletes took part in an ACC Community Connections outreach event Thursday morning before the start of the 2014 ACC  Women’s Lacrosse Championship.
The student-athletes worked with 50 inner city youth in conjunction with MetroLacrosse, a non-profit organization based in Boston whose mission is to address the social and economic disparities that exist in urban settings by inspiring personal, educational and athletic success among urban youth and teens.

The ACC Community Connections Program, now in its fourth full year, takes place at all of the conference's Olympic sport championships. The program aims to get local youth the chance to talk with ACC student-athletes, learn about the sport and attend part of the championship.
