GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for October 16, 2017.

College Crosse News.

A great day at Marist as the Red Foxes hosted the Edward Taylor Coombs Foundation 34 Fall Tournament. Coombs, a Philadelphia-area native, was a former Marist player who tragically passed away after his freshman year in a car accident in 2011. Marist head coach Keegan Wilkinson spoke about Coombs’ times at Marist and the impact he had on his teammates and the Marist community in our podcast last week (32:00 mark).

Coombs’ legacy lives on today through the ETC Foundation and its mission to give merit awards to graduating seniors who have recognized potential or academic strength. The Foundation has inspired many & has distributed more than $360,000 in scholarships in its six years in existence. The ETC Foundation 34 Fall Tournament also included the Marist women’s lacrosse team as well. Here are some shots of the event from yesterday.

The Johns Hopkins University & the University of Albany went at it at Boys Latin yesterday in a scrimmage that saw a lot of fireworks. This amazing goal by Albany freshman Tehoka Nanticoke got everybody fired up.

Shout out to coach Belichick!: Guardians lacrosse nets Belichick grant.

The Guardians Youth Lacrosse organization is riding high after receiving a grant from the Bill Belichick Foundation earlier this year. Guardians involves players from Berlin, Boylston and West Boylston, and welcomes Lancaster and Clinton this year. Art Brand, one of the organizers of the group, said the foundation, in conjunction with STX Lacrose, “offers scholarships or grants (equipment).” So the Guardians board got together and created a grant request. Steve Savoie, another board member, said that cost is a factor when playing lacrosse. “At the younger end, the cost of equipment is prohibitive,” Savoie said. “So we submitted a grant request for younger kids, to offset costs.” “Whatever we can do to help a kid (participate), because it’s been shown that sports are a huge part of shaping a child’s life, and we’re passionate about that,” Brand said. The requ

These Virginia BALLERS were playing for a great cause this weekend.

About 200 people watched as young athletes from lacrosse teams across Greater Richmond came together to raise money and awareness for heart disease in young people Sunday. Lacrosse My Heart took place at Midlothian Middle School and involved 50 athletes from across the region, hoping to make a difference and save lives in their community. Money raised from Sunday's tournament benefits the Ryan Lopynski Big Heart Foundation. The foundation helps provide screenings and education in preventing sudden cardiac arrest in young adults. In many cases, there's no symptoms or warning signs.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Philly Mag posted a how to exit a crowded SEPTA Train guide.

We’ve all been there: crowded Regional Rail train, morning rush, and everyone’s getting off in Center City. The de-boarding process can be a hot mess. Why? People in the aisle try to be polite and let seated passengers squeeze into the queue, gumming up the works. What if we told you there’s a better way? We had a hunch that if all aisle-standers exited first and seated passengers simply filled in behind, everything would move much more quickly. To test our hypothesis, we rang up Jason Steffen — an assistant professor of physics and astronomy at UNLV who notably developed a method (the Steffen method!) for efficiently boarding airplanes. Guess what? He thinks we’re onto something, noting that as soon as someone stops and prevents the steady flow of people moving out the doors, efficiency drops off. A better way to ensure that flow? Populate the line from the back of the car.

World/National News.

Oh boy: Ireland closes schools as rare hurricane approaches.

Ireland has ordered all schools to close Monday as the country braces for an "unprecedented storm" with the arrival of Ophelia, the largest hurricane ever recorded so far east in the Atlantic Ocean. "In response to the imminent Storm Ophelia, the Department of Education and Skills is now publicly informing all schools, colleges and other education institutions that they are to remain closed tomorrow, Monday 16 October," the department said in a statement. The decision followed discussions with the government's emergency planning task force and advice "on this unprecedented storm" from Ireland's Met Eireann national weather service, the statement added.

Yesterday was a sad day for everyone who has Aaron Rodgers on their Fantasy team.

Walking gingerly to the sideline with his throwing shoulder throbbing in pain, Aaron Rodgers turned back toward the field and barked at Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr. Rodgers likely already knew that his season was in jeopardy after Barr's hit broke his collarbone, and the fiery quarterback's frustration boiled over. Now the Green Bay Packers have to try to make sure their season as a whole doesn't go down the drain with it. Rodgers was knocked out of the 23-10 loss to the Vikings in the first quarter on Sunday with an injury that could cause him to miss the remainder of the season .
