Colorado lax community mourns the loss of freshman Kristin Callbeck.

Smoky Hill High School is mourning the death of a 15-year-old freshmen lacrosse player. Kristin Callbeck was playing in a JV lacrosse game Tuesday evening when she had to leave the field after saying she wasn't feeling well. Shortly after, Callbeck collapsed and was rushed to the hospital, where she later died. Extra counselors were brought in to assist students and will be regularly available when needed.

Our man Edward Lee of the Baltimore Sun with 3 things to watch for in the Towson vs. UMass game today.

1) Faceoffs. Towson sophomore Alex Woodall ranks seventh in Division I in faceoff percentage at .620 (155-for-250) and is tied for 17th in ground balls per game at 6.0. Massachusetts junior Noah Rak ranks eighth in faceoff percentage at .614 (140-for-228) and 20th in ground balls at 5.8. In the Tigers’ 11-8 win on April 8, Woodall won 12 of 22 draws (54.5 percent) and picked up six loose balls, but Rak won 10 of 19 (52.6 percent) and matched Woodall with six ground balls. With both players enjoying strong performances on Thursday (Woodall was 12 of 14 with nine loose balls and Rak was 17 of 26 with five ground balls), Minutemen coach Greg Cannella predicted that Saturday’s tilt would be a battle.

What’s Up, Philly?

Penn reveals plans for a $1.5 billion dollar hospital of the future.

In 2021, Philadelphia’s hospital landscape will look dramatically different with the introduction of a brand new hospital. The University of Pennsylvania announced on Wednesday plans to erect “The Pavilion,” a $1.5 billion hospital on Penn Medicine’s West Philadelphia campus. Penn says the ambitious project, the most expensive development in its history, is a bold response to impending health care challenges lurking in the future. “This is the hospital that will define America’s best medicine for generations to come,” said Penn president Amy Gutmann. “This building will be transformational, serving as the flagship facility for Penn Medicine and setting a new standard for modern health care delivery across the nation.”

Billionaires’ yachts are ransom targets for cyber-thieves.

The ease with which ocean-going oligarchs or other billionaires can be hijacked on the high seas was revealed at a superyacht conference held in a private members club in central London this week. Superyachts and bragging rights: why the super-rich love their ‘floating homes’ Read more Murray, a cybercrime expert at BlackBerry, was demonstrating how criminal gangs could exploit lax data security on superyachts to steal their owners’ financial information, private photos – and even force the yacht off course. The seaborne cybercrime threat is real: one billionaire had more than £100,000 stolen when criminals hacked his bank account. Others have been blackmailed with compromising photos, and some have already been forced to pay a ransom to unlock their vessel’s navigation systems. The cybercrime session was one of the most popular at the Superyacht Investor London conference, where the industry was celebrating the best annual sales since the 2008 financial crisis.
