Dixon's Takeaways: AQ Season — The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
It’s the most wonderful time of the year for college lacrosse fans. So many possibilities, so few slots for a chance to compete for a national championship; it is win or go home for a number of good teams after a weekend of upsets. Conference titles and AQs will be won, while precious at-large berths will either be earned or lost. Before we get there let’s take a look back and see how we got here.

Swezey: Army 'Not Ready to Say Goodbye' to John Glesener
The greatest testaments to Army West Point senior John Glesener’s career can be found, among other places, in his place in the program’s record books, the column inches devoted to his game and in video highlight reels.

Tuesdays with Corey: Lyle Thompson or the Tewaaraton Field?
Let's face it. This year the Tewaaraton Award is Lyle Thompson's to lose. If I had a vote, he would get mine right now and probably no matter what happens down the stretch of the season.

SoCon Power Rankings: It’s All Richmond, and Hurrah for VMI
Heading into the 2015 season, a majority of pundits and coaches picked Bellarmine to win the SoCon’s inaugural season with High Point, Richmond and Jacksonville to finish second, third and fourth respectively; the top four in the seven-team conference qualify. Inside Lacrosse Face-Off Yearbook picked High Point followed by Richmond, Bellarmine and Jacksonville. So, almost everybody missed with Bellarmine; however, it should be noted again that Bobby Schmitt, the Knights’ best player, suffered a season-ending injury, just previous to the start of the season.

Thompson Watch: Regular Season Finale
Albany’s regular season came to an end this past weekend with a 20-9 thumping of America East foe UMBC. The esteemed hero of the Thompson Watch narrative, Lyle Thompson, contributed four points on three goals and an assist for the Scoobies. With those four points Lyle currently sits at 371 for his career, which is currently +17 over the previous record.

Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse staying even-keeled despite earning top seed in Big Ten tournament
Riding a three-game winning streak capped by Saturday’s 15-12 upset of then-No. 2 Maryland that handed Johns Hopkins a share of the Big Ten Conference regular-season title and the top seed in the upcoming league tournament, the program wouldn’t be out of bounds for basking in the limelight.

Maryland men's lacrosse in not-too-familiar territory of rebounding from loss
Maryland’s 15-12 setback to Big Ten rival Johns Hopkins on Saturday night was only the team’s second loss this season and first since Feb. 21 when Yale scored a 10-6 victory.

Casey Ikeda Is Maryland Lacrosse's Rock In The Back End
As a three-sport star at Conestoga High School, University of Maryland men's lacrosse defender Casey Ikeda did what a lot of kids do in Philadelphia. He watched the Eagles on Sundays and dreamt of playing during the NCAA lacrosse final four on the expertly manicured grass of Lincoln Financial Field.

Men’s lacrosse eliminated from postseason contention after 14-13 loss to Vermont
Entering its regular-season finale on Saturday, the Binghamton men’s lacrosse team was two goals away from securing its second-consecutive America East tournament berth. But the Catamounts (6-9, 4-2 AE), who have not qualified for a conference tournament since the 2010 season, dashed BU’s (4-9, 2-4 AE) chances with a 14-13 victory.

Lehigh men’s lacrosse moves on from losing season
As the time winded down to zero on the scoreboard during the men’s lacrosse game between Lehigh and Bucknell University on April 21, the players stopped running and acknowledged the end of the 2015 season.
