NORTH ANDOVER, MA – As the largest freshmen class in recent history moves into Merrimack College representing the Class of 2015, Merrimack’s student-athletes were out in full force helping the newcomers move in to their dorm rooms.

Student-athletes from the football, field hockey, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, and field hockey teams assisted the 620-member Class of 2015 on Thursday, taking time away from their practices, training and preparation for the upcoming season.

After winning over 65% of home games in 2010-11, Merrimack’s 2011-12 season kicks off Thursday night when the men’s soccer team hosts Post at 7 p.m. at Warrior Field.
