This weekend on Saturday, March 19th, members of our Retan Rifles, Color Guard, and Band have been invited to do a presentation of the colors and national anthem during the Capital Classic Lacrosse Tournament at Audi Stadium.
Our cadets will present the colors and play the national anthem prior to the second game at 3 PM which will pit UVA vs. Maryland in a highly-anticipated rematch of the 2021 national championship game that Virginia won last May by a score of 17-16, tying the record for the most goals ever in the national championship. The stadium is expected to be packed full at 20,000 people for this game and the game will be nationally televised on the Big Ten Network.
The Capital Classic Lacrosse Tournament is a three-game event with the first game starting at 12 noon when Hampden-Sydney faces off against Catholic. The third game of the tournament, Duke vs. Towson, will begin at 6 PM.
Audi Field is a soccer-specific stadium that is home to Washington DC's Major League Soccer team, DC United. It is located on Potomac Avenue in the Buzzard Point area of Washington, DC, near the Potomac River in the southwest part of the city.
