WHAT YOU MISSED

LACROSSE THE NATION
Set your DVRs! Maybe not now, but probably set a reminder to set your DVRs. CBS Sports Network will broadcast 10 Patriot League games this season, including the PL semifinals and championship game.
OPINION: The PL Championship game is on April 30. With no NCAA hoops going on then, why can’t CBS broadcast the game? Would be great exposure for the sport on BROADCAST TELEVISION.
Now, Gerald Ford, please do the honors.
An ACC school has released their schedule.
Towson has named their four captains for next season.
Redshirt senior Brian Bolewicki will serve as a captain for a second straight season, while true seniors Jack Adams and Ryan Drenner will be captains for the first time. Sophomore Zach Goodrich rounds out the quartet, becoming the first true sophomore captain in the [Shawn] Nadelen Era (2012).
"Having Jack, Brian, Ryan and Zach earn the distinguished honor of being elected captain by their peers provides great leadership for the 2017 team," said Nadelen, who begins his sixth year as the headman of the program. "Each one has great character, an unwavering work ethic and the respect of their teammates. They all embody what being a Towson lacrosse player is about. Brian and Jack are the most vocal of the group. Ryan is our leader on the offensive end and has been a great resource for the young players this past fall. Zach is the first sophomore we have had as a captain during my 13 years at Towson. He has certainly earned the respect of his teammates and continues to strengthen his voice within the team each day. These four captains, to go along with a strong senior class that has had a lot of experience and success on the field, will help us during the challenges of the 2017 season."
Michael J. Lewis writes about the great story between Drexel lacrosse and Logan Huston.
Is it a stretch to say that Logan Huston’s bond with the Dragons lacrosse team saved his life? Maybe.
But not by much. As hundreds of children have found out over the past decade, a Friends of Jaclyn Foundation adoption can make such a difference in the lives of athletes and their adoptees.
“I honestly think every single Division I, II, and III team in America should have to do a FOJ adoption,” said Drexel’s Jake Gennosa. “To be around a kid like Logan and his awesome family, it makes everything we do so much better.”
Logan’s medical journey has been incredibly rough; he has had 11 tumors all over his body, including four on his brain. The type of tumors he has, plexiform tumors, can’t be removed by surgery because of the fear of excessive blood loss that could kill him.
I like this motivation. Plus because I’m in the second photo.
