By Saturday night, just hours after the tragic bus crash involving the Seton Hill women's lacrosse team that killed head coach Kristina Quigley and her unborn son, an outpouring of support began to appear on social media channels. Online campaigns encouraged players and teams to wear crimson and gold — Seton Hill's team colors — in show of support for the program and all those affected. The Play 4 Seton Hill Facebook page is one, featuring pictures from around the country.

Many Sunday games across the lacrosse landscape included a moment of silence. Seton Hill students and staff gathered on Sunday night on the campus of the small Catholic school in Greensburg, Pa., to mourn the loss of Quigley, 30, her child, and the driver of the bus, 61-year-old Anthony Guaetta.

The Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) and the Intercollegiate Men's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IMLCA) on Sunday asked all lacrosse coaches to hold a moment of silence at their next game to remember both the life Quigley and the members of Seton Hill team.
