Though the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing has been taken into custody, providing a much-needed sense of relief, those affected by the tragic events of earlier this week are still on the minds of many — including UMass.
The Minutemen will play their spring game today and provide a touching tribute to the victims of the attack. Four players will wear the names Krystle Campbell, Lu Lingzi, Martin Richard, and Sean Collier on their jerseys; captain Rob Blanchflower will wear the hashtag #BostonStrong on his jersey.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those affected, directly or indirectly, with the events of earlier this week.
