Kids from First Nations up in Canada have dreams of playing in the NLL.

Lacrosse The Nation

Former Johns Hopkins Blue Jays midfielder Drew Supinski is playing lacrosse this season. It won’t be at Hopkins, nor will it be at Michigan or Virginia, and it won’t be at Notre Dame, as we previously heard back in August.

Supinski had a great start as a freshman in 2016 before going down with a season-ending injury. He had eight goals and four assists on 14 shots on goal in eight games, all of which he started. He played in eight games last year, starting one, but recorded only three turnovers.

If he can return to his freshman year-self and even when he was a stud at The Haverford School, he’ll complement a Pioneer midfield that includes Connor Donahue, Colton Jackson, Connor Flynn, and Nate Marano.

Additionally, when looking at the Georgetown Hoyas, former Mercer Bears midfielder Lucas Wittenberg is on their roster. Late last season, I heard a few whispers that he was looking to transfer from Mercer. He should help Daniel Bucaro on offense after the departure of Peter Conley to Duke.

Speaking of the Hoyas, they released their schedule yesterday. And so did the Hofstra Pride.

The Michigan Wolverines unveiled their new athletic facilities, which includes new locker rooms for both lacrosse teams:

That will complement a great new stadium that will open up this season:

The Penn Quakers also got a new locker room:

Happy belated birthday to a GOAT:

Shoutout to George Washington women’s lacrosse for giving back during the Thanksgiving holiday!

I’m pretty jealous about Elon’s women’s team:

For the first time since 2009, the Federation of International Lacrosse will present its FIL Lifetime Achievement Award. This year’s recipients are Stan Cockerton of Canada and Shelby Mahar of Australia.

Cockerton’s lacrosse achievements are impressive. He was inducted into the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 2003 and the U.S. Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 2014 for his contributions as a record-setting scorer. Cockerton was an outstanding box lacrosse athlete but achieved his greatest success in the field game. He played for North Carolina State University from 1977 to 1980, scoring 193 goals (all-time NCAA record he held until 2008) and 280 points. Cockerton still holds the NCAA all-time record for goals per game (4.39 goals per game). A first team All-Star and ACC leading scorer in each of his four NC State seasons with two conference MVP awards, he also achieved All-American status in each of his four years at NC State. Cockerton joined the Canadian national team that captured gold in the 1978 world championship in England. In that championship, Cockerton scored six goals and three assists, including the overtime winning goal, in the 17-16 victory over the United States and was the leading scorer in the tournament. Cockerton also participated as a player in the 1982 and 1990 world championships and as an assistant coach in 1986 and 1990. Cockerton was also the head coach of the Canadian 1988 and 1992 U19 men’s field teams and manager of the 1996 U19 men’s field team.

While a member of the fabled Oshawa Green Gaels junior box lacrosse team he was twice named the league MVP. Cockerton played in only 60 senior games with the Brooklin Redmen (Whitby, Ontario) but racked up 282 points. Stan initiated and hosted the first ILF World Indoor Championships in 2003 and co-founded two international friendly cups: the Heritage Cup and the Brogden Cup. Stan is currently Executive Director of the Ontario Lacrosse Association and continues to work with the FIL on the Development Committee and as Chair of the Olympic Vision Committee.

Maher has held many administrative positions including president of Women’s Lacrosse Victoria, Lacrosse Victoria and Women’s Lacrosse Australia. She was appointed to the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) board as the director of Women’s Lacrosse in 2008. She was reappointed in 2012 and served until this past July. Maher provided oversight for the Women’s World Cups in Oshawa, Canada in 2013, and the largest-ever Women’s World Cup in Guildford, England in July of this year where 25 teams participated. Over that same span of time, she oversaw two FIL U19 Women’s Lacrosse World Championships in Hanover, Germany in 2011 and Edinburgh, Scotland in 2015.

Maher also had the distinct honor of organizing lacrosse’s first participation in a multi-sport world event since 1948 in July following the Women’s World Cup, when she directed the FIL women’s lacrosse six-team appearance in the 2017 World Games in Wroclaw, Poland.
