The Rivalry between the Maryland Terrapins and the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays are one of the things you have to do when you’re in Maryland.
#TheRivalry makes an appearance in @BaltSunSports "Top 50 things to do or see in Maryland" - although we are partial to Maryland Stadium! pic.twitter.com/X1jye8bb4U— Maryland Lacrosse (@TerpsMLax) July 16, 2017

Former Syracuse Orange legend Kayla Treanor set a new U.S. single-game record with 12 points in their win over Canada! She also had seven assists, which tied a U.S. single-game record! Sorry, eh!
Congrats to @unKayTrain_able for setting a new U.S. single-game record (12PTs)! Her 7A, feat. this behind-the-back beauty, tied U.S. record. pic.twitter.com/zZmpbDPIJO— US Lacrosse (@USLacrosse) July 16, 2017
Her former Cuse teammate, Michelle Tumolo, described the win over Canada in her Mission Log:
I start my morning off with a nice iced caramel latte from a café next door with Becca [Block], Brooke [Griffin] and Alice [Mercer]. We all grab a bite to eat to fuel our bodies for the big day ahead. This morning, I spiced it up and made avocado toast with a little bit of hot sauce – so trendy. Thanks to our amazing manager, Wendy Stone, and the rest of the staff for keeping the kitchen stocked!
Next, we head to our team meeting where we review film of our game against England, and prepare for our game versus Canada. No matter the score, there’s always something we can learn and improve on from a previous game. We know that Canada is a smart, skilled and physical team that will play us to their very best.
During our meeting, the well-deserved flag bearer from the day before, my forever roomie Meg Douty, got her turn to hand it off to the next person. I was that lucky person, and even better, receiving it from a selfless, hardworking, always-have-your-back kind of teammate and friend. It’s an honor to get the flag from you MEG DOUTY! (I’m screaming it like Bully [Sarah Bullard].)
We head to our pregame lunch, again fueling the tanks to make sure we are gassed up! Becca Block and I found a jackpot vending machine with sparkling coconut water. Life-changing. We indulge. I’m sure we will be getting cases sent to our Eugene apartment ASAP – I wouldn’t be surprised if Becca has already done so. (She’s the queen of online shopping.)
The NLL announced something! Except it was their All-Pro and All-Rookie teams.
Division III news: Drew University named alum and former Scranton University head coach Doug Sage as their next head coach.
Former Philadelphia 76ers great Allen Iverson returned to Philly yesterday for the BIG3’s stop at the Wells Fargo Center. He didn’t play, and many fans booed him because of that.
I’m here for his Delta vs. Ann Coulter Twitter fight!
