WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGNER announced its captains for the 2018 season.
Wagner College head men's lacrosse coach Matt Poskay, who will enter his seventh season at the helm of the Seahawk program in 2018, has announced that seniors Andrew Streilein, Tanner Dixon, Andrew Park and Joe Lomeli will serve as the captains for the 2018 season.
"We're excited about these four young men, each of whom are tremendous student-athletes and highly-productive players," said Poskay. "They're all possess leadership qualities and are extremely deserving of their roles as team captains."
For Streilein, this marks the second straight season that he will serve as a captain. The South Jersey native has been a top scorer for the Seahawks from the moment he first stepped on campus. He will enter his final Seahawk campaign already ranked No. 1 in Wagner history in points (116), tied for first all-time in assists (46), and third on the career goal list (70). In 2017, he was a Second-Team All-Northeast Conference choice after leading the Green & White in goals (28), assists (15) and points (43).
Our Dragon Queen Marisa Ingemi blessed us with a nice post on BU’s 2018 schedule.
The Boston University Terriers are the 18th team in our 2018 schedule preview series and the fifth team from the Patriot League. Last season, the Terriers started out 7-0 before losing three out of five games. BU went on to win three conference games in a row, with an overtime defeat over Loyola at home before toppling Holy Cross in overtime to clinch their first Patriot League tournament berth. A strong showing over Lehigh in the quarterfinals extended the season before the Terriers fell to Army in the semi-finals.

From 0 to 100, real quick: Yorktown native Amanda Saccamanno, who went from high school lacrosse manager to WWE Raw star.
Once she was simply Amanda Saccamanno, student manager for the Yorktown High School varsity lacrosse team. On Nov. 20, she stepped into the WWE ring for her debut on Monday Night Raw as "Mandy Rose."
Back in 2015, Saccamanno was selected from a pool of more than 11,000 male and female applicants to appear as one of 13 contestants on "WWE Tough Enough," a reality show in which competitors battle for the chance to be the next professional wrestling celebrity.

Rutgers released their 2018 schedule.
"I have been very pleased with our fall practices and workouts thus far as our spring schedule will be very challenging for us," head coach Brian Brecht said. "We have a talented senior class and many players that have played in some very big games for us over the past two years. I am hoping that those experiences and our maturity will allow us to grow each week of the season. Our non-conference competition will no doubt challenge us both at home and on the road this year, and prepare us for the month of April when we face all our Big Ten opponents. "

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Stand up, Philly: Comcast’s new tower overtakes its first tower as tallest building in the city.
Comcast Corp.’s new, unfinished tower is now officially the tallest building in the city. Construction and Comcast officials confirmed what the naked eye could tell in recent weeks. The new tower surpassed the old one in height: 1,050 feet for the new tower, or 75 feet taller than the Comcast Center, the company’s headquarters and until now the highest Philadelphia high-rise.
The new tower — which will house the cable giant’s engineering and product-development teams and will be topped with a luxury Four Seasons hotel — will eventually reach 1,121 feet. “While it’s not at its ultimate height, it is the tallest building in the city,” John Gattuso, a regional director and senior vice president at Liberty Property Trust, which jointly owns the building with Comcast and which is managing the construction, said Monday.
CBS, PBS, Bloomberg .... pretty much everybody fired Charlie Rose yesterday.
Talk show host and journalist Charlie Rose was fired Tuesday by CBS News, PBS and Bloomberg in the wake of eight women accusing him of sexual harassment and unwanted advances in a report in The Washington Post.
"A short time ago we terminated Charlie Rose's employment with CBS News, effective immediately," said a statement posted to Twitter from CBS News President David Rhodes. "This followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior said to have revolved around his PBS program."
In a statement, PBS also announced it had ended its relationship with Rose, whose self-titled interview show began airing in 1991.
Yikes!: Ray Allen tells Orlando court he was catfished.
Retired NBA star Ray Allen said he is a victim of "catfishing," and has asked a court to throw out a case where he is accused of stalking someone he met online. Allen filed an emergency motion in Orange County, Florida, on Tuesday, one day after Bryant Coleman told the court he is being stalked by the 10-time All-Star and two-time NBA champion.
Allen said Coleman is the one who is stalking.
"Coleman pretended to be a number of attractive women interested in Ray Allen," read the motion filed on Allen's behalf. "Ray believed he was speaking with these women and communicated with them."
Attorney David Oscar Markus released a statement saying Allen took legal action in an effort to put an end to threats against him and his family, and that Allen was the victim "of an online scheme to extract money and embarrass him by someone who appears to be troubled."
