Ty Guarente, an alumni jv lacrosse coach, was in a serious car accident on the night of Monday, April 22nd, on his way to practice.
The rain that night caused the accident making the car flip with severe injuries to Ty that included 3 broken ribs, a lacerated spleen, and a broken thoracic spine.
The thoracic spine is the most severe injury not allowing Ty to feel from the waist down.
Coach Ty dealt mainly with freshman players, one of his players Teddy Klein (‘22), had a lot of positive things to say about coach Ty during this recovery process.
“ I strive to have the same battling spirit that he brought to our lacrosse sideline each and everyday,” Klein said.
It’s a very important time in Ty’s life to not give up and bring that same battle from the lacrosse field to the fight of his life.
Brien McMahon Lacrosse has done a very powerful thing for one of their own, they realized Ty is going to have thousands of dollars in medical bills.
A close family member thought it would be a great idea to set up a Go Fund Me page (link at the bottom). This page has raised up to $46,755 for Ty’s future medical bills.
The McMahon community came together and shared this page to social media and is making a huge effort to help reach the goal of the page of $50,000.
The community has done a great thing for a great guy many of his players stated, he wasn’t just a coach to me but a mentor.
Please help reach the pages goal of $50,000 and donate for Ty!
