2013 Notre Dame Lacrosse Player Blog: Pitch Imperfect, Freshman Bus Karaoke
Hello again, lacrosse fans, Notre Dame fans, and awesome blog fans. In this week’s adventure I take you inside yet another Notre Dame tradition. While the trip only takes place once every two years, it may be the most memorable team experience in my college career.
Michigan 8, Ohio State 17
Last year, Michigan kept things very close against the Buckeyes, and although the Wolverines weren’t in position to steal the win, it was a definite sign of progress.

Family Pride as DiMaria Brothers Push Toward Playoffs
Dan was always a big, gifted defenseman while David was a late-blooming, smaller attackman. The DiMarias couldn’t be more different, yet alike in many ways. Both are in their final collegiate seasons, but took very different paths to where they are today. They’re trying to lead their respective squads — Duke and Lehigh — to the NCAA Tournament and maybe even a Championship Weekend matchup in Philadelphia with a National Title on the line.
Yale Out of the Dark Ages and into Ivy Spotlight
As a three-year starter, Yale senior defenseman Peter Johnson has been on board throughout the Bulldogs' evolutionary ride upward. And Johnson looked at Yale's latest victory as another snapshot revealing the fiber of a program revived.
