HEN SCRATCHINGS  🐔
     · The Blue Hens welcome #19/rv Princeton to Delaware Stadium as the second game in a doubleheader with the Delaware men's lacrosse team.
     · Saturday's games will recognize the One Love Foundation, which empowers people to #LoveBetter and understand that one conversation, one action and one person can make a difference and even save a life from domestic violence. The One Love Foundation
was co-founded by Sharon and Lexie Love in May 2010 to honor their daughter and sister, Yeardley Reynolds Love, a University of Virginia student-athlete who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend. The organization supports its mission to end relationship violence through the core values that Yeardley exemplified: education, service, kindness, dedication, humility and sportsmanship. The more we can identify and navigate healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors, the less likely one will end up in an unhealthy or abusive relationship.
