GARDEN CITY, N.Y. — A suburban New York college lacrosse team has replaced its warm-up music with a recording of a portion of a speech by President Donald Trump.

 

An Instagram video of the Adelphi University team was posted Wednesday showing players running onto the field at the conclusion of an excerpt of a Trump speech that includes his campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again."

 

Newsday reports Adelphi athletic director Danny McCabe says in a statement the pre-game music is chosen as a team. It was approved because it did not contain vulgarity or inappropriate subject matter.

 

The team finished the regular season with a 14-3 record. It begins the NCAA Division II playoffs against Pace on Saturday.

 

Adelphi is a private university on Long Island.

 

The Barstool Sports website was the first to report the Instagram video.
