Great article by the NY Times on how former Dowling College BALLERS moved over to NYIT to pursue their lacrosse dreams.
Shortly after the email arrived — the dreaded email with the news they had been fretting about for weeks — a group text went out to the players on Dowling College’s women’s lacrosse team.
It had a picture of their coach, Kerri Handras, standing in front of a cerulean blue sign that read, “N.Y.I.T. women’s lacrosse.” Below it was a message: “Who’s coming?” The responses quickly flooded in. Yes, yes, yes, yes.
Thirteen affirmatives. They were all coming. But wait, what is N.Y.I.T.? It hardly mattered. For the Dowling players, Handras’s text felt like a soft airbag after a high-speed collision. The email they had received at 5 p.m. on May 31 had informed them their college was closing, a jolt they had never truly believed was possible.
What’s Up Philly?
If that wasn’t bad enough it appears Ben Simmons might not play at all this season.
Hearing that Simmons CT scan didn't go as planned today and his season is very much in doubt #Sixers— John Barchard (@JohnBarchard) February 24, 2017
Whenever you think it can't get worse as a Philly fan, always remember, it'll get so much worse. SO MUCH WORSE!
