Pac-12 teams Oregon & Colorado took a trip to Australia to help grow the game.

Global lacrosse equipment market is expected to grow 3% from 2016-2020.
This research report titled ‘Global Lacrosse Equipment Market 2017-2021’ provides an in-depth analysis of the market in terms of revenue and emerging market trends. This market research report also includes an up to date analysis and forecasts for various market segments and all geographical regions.
According to Brijesh Kumar Choubey, a lead analyst at Technavio for outdoor gear research, “Lacrosse is highly popular in Canada and the US and is becoming a mainstream sport like other major American sports played professionally in high schools and colleges. Its popularity is increasing at a fast rate globally, and organizers hope that the sport will become an international sport and will make its Olympic debut by 2024.”
Mchele DeJuliis is resigning as United Women's Lacrosse League commissioner after serving in that role over the past year, the league announced.
"Michele provided outstanding leadership for the UWLX over the past year," said Digit Murphy, UWLX CEO and co-founder. "We are very grateful for all of her contributions in helping us establish the first-ever professional women's lacrosse league in this country. We now look forward to building upon the foundation that has been created as we head into a dynamic future for the UWLX and professional women's sports in general."
My man here scored a SWEET lacrosse style goal.
Syracuse released their 2017 schedule. Chris is working on a post about it but until then make sure you check out our boy James Simmons’ (@OrangeLax) post about Cuse’s schedule over at Troy Nunes.
The 2017 Hopkins vs. Syracuse regular season game has moved to Homewood field.
Syracuse will then begin a two-game road swing, first heading to St. Johns on March 11, before returning to Johns Hopkins on March 18.
It's the second-consecutive season that the game will take place at Homewood Field, with the Blue Jays set to return to Syracuse in both 2018 and 2019. The location change is due to Syracuse University and the Carrier Dome making a commitment to host the first and second round matchups of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament should Syracuse earn a top-four seed for the second straight season.
Alternate dates for lacrosse game to be played in Syracuse were explored, but both schools' schedules could not accommodate the game on another day this season. "We are pleased to be able to continue this historic rivalry and appreciate Johns Hopkins working with us to ensure the home-and-home series stays intact," said Syracuse University Director of Athletics John Wildhack. "Our goal is to give all of our student-athletes the opportunity to compete in NCAA Championships at home whenever possible. We all appreciate the support of Coach Desko and his staff in arriving at this decision."

Fox 10 in Phoenix did a story on Hummingbird lacrosse helmets.
"Let's face it, the girls get ignored," said Rob Stolker. For Stolker, he loves sports and his four girls, and Stolker said he wants his girls happy and safe. When the youngest asked to play Lacrosse, Stolker said he couldn't believe there were no helmets. "They're strong, they're fierce, they play hard, they play aggressive," said Stolker. "I love that, but to not have any protection on their head is just insane." Stolker then decided to do something about it. He gathered a team on experts and created the very first approved headgear for girl's Lacrosse.
The good people at Anonymous Eagle are stoked about Marquette’s high preseason ranking in IL’s Face-Off Top 20.

“PA license won't be valid for federal buildings in January, air travel in 2018.”
Starting in Jan. 30, Pennsylvanians most likely will need an alternative, more secure form of identification to enter federal facilities. And starting in January 2018, current state licenses won't be sufficient for boarding commercial flights. The problem is that Pennsylvania licenses and state IDs don't meet the requirements of the federal REAL ID Act, which was enacted in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks and sets standards for secure identification cards. A Pennsylvania law passed in 2012 bars the state from participating in REAL ID. The state has been granted several extensions for compliance in the past, but the Department of Homeland this week denied PennDot's latest request. "Pennsylvania has not committed to meeting all remaining requirements and has not provided adequate justification for continued noncompliance," the department said in an October letter to PennDot.
