Through therapy, continued support from friends and family and new career goals, Rachel is making progress in her recovery. “With a brain injury you have to work harder in life, but that doesn’t define you, you can keep going forward,” Rachel said. “I don’t want to let that define me,” she added. “I want to get back to who I was and be seen as a strong person.”

The UMass Minutemen released their 2017 schedule and it’s SPICY.

UMass plays four consecutive road games during non-conference action, including contests at Ohio State, Harvard, Yale and Albany spanning three weeks of the season.

The United Women’s Lacrosse League announced their partnership with Gillette Stadium on Monday.
The UWLX concluded their inaugural season last spring and has since made headlines as the first professional lacrosse league ‘for women, by women.’ Gillette Stadium will serve a promotional partner at the 2017 NCAA Division 1 Women’s Lacrosse Championship on Memorial Day Weekend May 26-29 in Foxborough, Mass.
In a press release sent on Monday, Digit Murphy the co-founder of the UWLX expressed her excitement surrounding the new partnership. “Being a native New Englander, it is a dream come true to have the UWLX and United Women’s Sports associated with Gillette Stadium,” said Murphy. “It is also going to be really incredible to work with Phil again, along with his entire team. Phil has always been a strong advocate of creating sports opportunities for both men and women, and this relationship is one that will be very beneficial for our league and the entire sport of lacrosse.”United Women’s Lacrosse League announces partnership with Gillette Stadium

The National Lacrosse League “is going over-the-top with a video platform facilitated by Sportsrocket.”

Sportsrocket, run by Classic Sports Network and College Sports Television founder Brian Bedol, will help the NLL engage fans with streaming, video on demand, social highlights and video sharing from its games.

Even major sports with billion-dollar television contracts are looking for ways to connect with fans online. And for niche sports, online video enables fans to consume the games or highlights they want to see.

“In partnering with Sportsrocket, we’re investing in the future of sports entertainment,” said Nick Sakiewicz, commissioner of the National Lacrosse League. “The last decade has seen a strong, transformative shift in the way fans are tuning in to watch games, highlights, sports analysis and other video on-demand content. By providing a digital platform that dedicates itself so strongly to the consumer experience, we’ll be able to provide our fans with the most action-packed, accessible and engaging content of the box lacrosse world.”
