POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - During the summer of 2011 the Marist men's lacrosse team, and the entire Marist community, was rocked with the news of the death of rising sophomore midfielder Edward Coombs.  

Three Marist seniors - Michael Schwartz, Kayla Burton and Alex Wolochuk - spent the better part of their final month as students working on a documentary that celebrated the memory of Coombs.

The documentary, which runs 15 minutes, includes interviews with current players and coaches as well as highlights of Coombs from his freshman season in 2011.
