For those of you on campus, both faculty and staff, who enjoyed watching Canisius baseball or women’s lacrosse a decade ago, enjoyed the championship success of women’s cross country 30 years ago, or go way back to the late 1970s of the highest scoring basketball team in school history, then this weekend is a special occasion for you.
