Shay says instead of taking any moral victories from a one-goal loss at Cornell, his team instituted a symbol for the detail-oriented work to which they were recommitting themselves. "We started adding pennies to a water jug. For a little play, being diligent about a detail in practice. One-hand groundball, we take a penny away; two-handed groundball, put one in. We wanted a symbol for the seemingly insignificant things — a penny, the smallest piece of currency out there." It added up. "We probably have $150 in the water jug, it's over 50 pounds now. It’s absurd."The next time you argue that the penny should be eliminated from circulation, think about all the college lacrosse teams you could be hurting.
