GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thank you for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for May 30, 2017.

What You Missed

You picked a bad day to miss lacrosse, because the Maryland Terrapins won their first National Championship in 42 years.

I was on the field for the trophy presentation and other postgame shenanigans.

The Division II and III champions were decided on Sunday.

Maryland’s back home!

An interesting stat from two goalies:

Meanwhile for the Ohio State Buckeyes.

BOSS John Tillman is still busy today!

Shoutout to all the Maryland pro teams showing love to the Terps, men and women, on their wins!

(check out the replies on that one!)

The Baltimore Ravens even one-upped everyone!

Maryland made history, which North Carolina did last year as well:

Shoutout to the ESPN gang of Anish Shroff, Quint Kessenich, and Paul Carcaterra on an unbelievably fun first year in the booth. They need to do more games, lacrosse and with other sports!

His call from the game:

Plenty of other recaps to roll around as well:

Lee also released the first of a four-part series for his premature 2018 men’s lacrosse rankings.

20. Air Force (2017 record: 12-6; NCAA tournament finish: first round)

Losses: Two starters in defenseman Nicholas Accardi (40 ground balls and 15 caused turnovers) and goalkeeper Mitch Rose (8.04 goals-against average and .479 save percentage).

Returns: Eight starters, including the entire attack of juniors Chris Walsch (36 goals and 28 assists) and Nick Hruby (35 G, 10 A) and freshman Matthew Schwartz (13 G, 11 A).

Reason for pessimism: Freshman Paxton Boyer (7.82 GAA, .443 save percentage), who is poised to succeed Rose, was the early-season starter before being replaced by Rose.

Reason for optimism: An offense that scored 10.9 goals per game should be led again by Walsch, the two-time Southern Conference Offensive Player of the Year.

STAND UP WILLIAM TENNENT! The Bucks County high school will begin a boys and girls program next season at the junior varsity level.
