It's on to the semifinals for Woodbury native Tom Thone and his University of St. Thomas lacrosse club teammates as the Tommies put away Grove City, 16-6, in the quarterfinal round of the Men's Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA) Division II National Tournament in Denver, Colo. on Wednesday.
St. Thomas, the defending champions at this level, put down an upstart Wolverines squad with Thone making 11 saves.
The No. 1 seeded Tommies are scheduled to take on fifth-seeded Davenport University in the Final Four matchup on Friday at Dick's Sporting Goods Stadium in Denver with a berth in the National final on Saturday against either No. 10 Westminster or No. 3 Utah Valley hanging in the balance.
