Local Connection on Penn State’s Men’s Lacrosse Team that Plays for National Championship this Weekend

Penn State will be facing Yale in the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Division I National Championship game this weekend. One of the players for Penn State, Chris Sabia, Jr. has deep family ties to Conshohocken and Lafayette Hill. Chris Jr.’s father and family are from Lafayette Hill and there are a bunch of family members in Conshohocken.

Sabia Jr., who was the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and the team’s captain, grew up working summers at the Sabia’s family business, D.M. Sabia & Co., in Conshohocken. That business has existed for almost a century.

Sabia, Jr., has already been drafted by two professional lacrosse leagues. He grew up in Harleysville and graduated from the Haverford School.
