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
I was on the field for the trophy presentation and other postgame shenanigans.
The Division II and III champions were decided on Sunday.
Lacrosse The Nation
Maryland’s back home!
An interesting stat from two goalies:
Dan Morris made 11 saves in the National Championship game.— Chris Jastrzembski (@CFJastrzembski) May 30, 2017
Pekka Rinne made 7 saves in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.
That is all.
Meanwhile for the Ohio State Buckeyes.
And most importantly THANK YOU to the amazing athletes, staff, coaches and fans of @OhioState_MLAX we love you with all our hearts! ❤️❤️— Block O Lacrosse (@LaxTheField) May 29, 2017
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:
No need to put a Crying Jordan over Scott Van Pelt this year!
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!
I didn't really know what lacrosse was until I got to college. But it's a special world. Thanks for letting me be a small part of it.— Anish Shroff (@AnishESPN) May 29, 2017
@AnishESPN Thank you for making the season even more fun with your gamecalling. You, Carc, and Quint are as entertaining as any trio in the booth.— Jake Nazar (@ATVS_JakeNazar) May 29, 2017

- Ohio State related posts from Bob Herzog of Newsday and Mark Znidar of The Columbus Dispatch
- Maryland related posts from The Baltimore Sun’s Edward Lee and Mike Preston.
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.
Little Pete’s is closing their doors for good.
The Rocky statue is being closed off to visitors for a couple of weeks for renovations around the area.
Longtime sportswriter Frank DeFord passed away at the age of 78.
