Biola University is dedicating their scrimmage this Saturday against Occidental to Noah Connolly. Noah’s dad Sean is the founder of Biola’s MCLA team and the president of the Orange County Lacrosse Officials Association. Noah was born on August 18, 2015 with only half a functioning heart. This condition is known as hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Noah will require three open-heart surgeries in the first three years of his life. The second surgery is scheduled for December or January.
Friends of lacrosse, Biola or the Connollys can follow Noah’s story and offer prayers or donations at MyHeartBeatsForNoah.com.
