GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for October 27, 2016.

College Crosse News.

Really interesting article about the growing trend of fall lacrosse.

Lee Corrigan, president of Corrigan Sports Enterprises, operates a top-ranked boys' club lacrosse program called the Roughriders, which consists of about two-dozen teams (based in Maryland and Pennsylvania) ranging from youth to high school seniors. He said the level of competition has forced players to try and stay ahead of peers fighting for the same potential spot on a top-tier high school or college program.

"It has become the way of the world at this point," said Corrigan, who coaches the Roughriders' elite team (class of 2017). "If a kid wants to excel -- i.e., play high-level high school and college lacrosse -- they really need to dedicate themselves to that sport, because so many of their competitors are doing it."
