GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for August 16, 2016.

College Crosse News.

The NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Rules Committee recommended a tweak to faceoff procedures in 2017, and several experimental rules for the fall, including a two-point shot.

Tufts made it official: Alumnus Casey D'Annolfo, former coach at the Taft School, was named BOSS of the Tufts University men's lacrosse program.

Shout out to BOSS Galloway of Jacksonville. Coach won the MLL Goalie of the Year award.

A starter in 13 games for the Rattlers, Galloway finished the regular season with an 8-5 record. Galloway ended with 188 saves and a career-high save percentage at 56.3 percent. Galloway also had one of the lowest goals against averages in the league with 11.77.

The trial of the two lacrosse players from Grosse Ile High School who killed a guinea pig in the locker room before a game started yesterday.

Great post about Philly fraternal twins, one of whom is going to be a future BALLER at UVA.

Nice post-Budapest recap by Lacrosse All Stars.
