College lacrosse: Wagner's McMenamin brothers make history

  William, Michael and Patrick (left-right) McMenamin made NCAA history on March 8.

Staten Island, NY – When the McMenamin brothers each scored a goal in a 7-6 win at VMI back on March 8, NCAA Division I men's lacrosse history was made as it marked the first time that three siblings had ever notched goals in the same game.

For good measure, the brothers, who hail from Longport, NJ and starred together at St. Augustine Prep, accomplished the feat again on March 26, accounting for seven of the Seahawks' 10 goals in a 10-8 home victory over NJIT.

The 2016 Seahawks (6-8), who have set the Wagner single-season program record for wins in a season, will look to go out in style when they host Northeast Conference (NEC) rival Robert Morris on Senior Day this Saturday, April 30, in a rare 10:00 a.m. start at Hameline Field.

Each of the three McMenamin brothers has played instrumental roles for the Seahawks throughout their careers. Michael, who is 15 months older than fraternal twin brothers, William, and Patrick, is a fifth-year defensive midfielder for the Seahawks. William is a redshirt junior midfielder while Patrick is a redshirt junior who plays attack.
