U-Va. lacrosse coach's father dies
The father of University of Virginia men's lacrosse coach Dom Starsia has died. He was 86.
Ill with various forms of cancer, Dominic Joseph Starsia had been in hospice care since February, the school said.
The deceased was a World War II veteran and a retired New York City police officer. He moved to Virginia in the late 1990s to be closer to his family, according to the school.
His death comes four days after a member of the Cavaliers' top-ranked lacrosse team was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the death of a member of the women's lacrosse team. George Huguely was arrested Monday, hours after Yeardley Love's body was found.
