Chris Hupfeldt, a longtime national volunteer with USA Lacrosse and an icon in the Lower Merion and Philadelphia lacrosse community, passed away at age 69, writes Brian Logue for USA Lacrosse.

Hupfeldt served as an assistant general manager for the 1998 U.S. Men’s National Team, as well as the general manager for the 2002 and 2006 teams. He helped guide them to two gold medals and one silver.

He also served as chair of the U.S. Men’s National Team Committee and volunteered on the Men’s Game Committee for USA Lacrosse.

In his youth, the Baltimore native played college lacrosse at Washington College. After graduation, he settled in the Philadelphia area. He later became general manager for the Eagle’s Eye and MAB Philadelphia team club teams.

He was also extremely active with the Ashbee youth lacrosse program.

“He was the heart and soul of Ashbee Lacrosse, the Lower Merion youth program,” said Bob Mongeluzzi, a former Penn player and longtime coach and volunteer in the Philadelphia region.
