Lacross Team Raises Money for Library 

Members from the lacrosse team at Colby College put down their sticks and hopped on bicycles Tuesday.40 of them took part in a relay covering more than 150-miles, from Colby to Bowdoin to Bates and back.Two riders at a time were responsible for 7 1/2 miles of road before they handed it off to the next pair.They started pedaling at 4:00 a.m., and returned to the Colby campus around 3:00 p.m.They did it to help raise money for the Waterville Public Library.Those who didn’t go for the ride were back at the library moving more than 20,000 children’s books upstairs from the basement.The coach says he’s not sure just yet how much the team has raised with the relay.The library has a $3,000,000 renovation plan. A lot of the money has been raised, but another $800,000 is needed to complete it.
