Michael Bruce was outstanding at the game of lacrosse and played attack for the Bridgewater-Raritan HS East Minuteman prior to his spinal cord injury. He was known for his quick moves, dedication to the game, and his ever-present smile and humor. In his memory, and for the exceptional qualities he showed on and off the field, the Bridgewater-Raritan HS lacrosse program hosts a pre-season High School tournament each Spring. Every year top teams from the Northeast come to Bridgewater for a great day of lacrosse in Michael’s honor.
The tournament is held in March at Bridgewater-Raritan High School.
