College Crosse News.

The Denver Pioneers announced their captains for 2018.

Midfielders Trevor Baptiste, Connor Donahue and Sean Mayle have been selected as 2018 captains for the University of Denver men’s lacrosse team. The program, which advanced to the Final Four in May for the fifth time in seven years, will formally announce the all-senior leadership group Thursday. Baptiste, a faceoff specialist, is a three-time first-team All-American who will serve as captain for the second consecutive season. Donahue started all 17 games in 2017 as a two-way midfielder and Mayle is a long-stick middie who supports Baptiste off the draw from the wing and occasionally plays both sides of the field.

Smart move: Va. lacrosse tournament using quarters, not halves because of extreme heat.

Lacrosse games normally consist of two halves, but for the first time, Eberl is splitting games into quarters to make more time for water breaks. "This is the first year we've incorporated the mandatory water breaks, so instead of doing halves, we're doing quarters," Eberl said. Water, ice, and cold towels are being provided for players throughout the day. Families are preparing too. Dorothy Amee and Cary Loh, both from New Jersey, said they always pack coolers down with waters and easily-digestible snacks. Both women said they make sure they talk to their sons about preparing for games the night before competition. "We're like, 'What did you do? How did you prepare?' 'What's in your cooler!" they said.

Penn State adds John Haus & John Hogan to its staff.

Take a stroll down ACC Lane with The Kid Chris in his latest installment of The Good, The Bad, & The Future.

The Future: Many people believe that the Cavaliers will return to their dominant self in 2018, and they bring in incoming freshmen Matt Moore and goaltender Alex Rode. Rode should compete with goaltenders Griffin Thompson and Will Railey. Neither of the latter two were clear-cut number ones in 2017. Mike D’Amario, Ryan Conrad, Milan Murray, Scott Hooper, and Zach Ambrosino all return, and the team also brings in former Monmouth Hawks FOGO Justin Schwenk.

Not good: Carleton College club lax player & rec league lax coach charged in hazing-related sexual assault..

Charges of sexual assault were filed Tuesday in connection with an April hazing incident in which 13 Carleton College students were suspended. Taariq Muhammad Vanegas, 19-year-old Carleton football player and rec league lacrosse coach from Seattle, Washington, faces felony third-degree sexual assault charges after reportedly having sex with a female student whose blood alcohol content was at least three times the legal limit. The student, who’s not named, says she remembers little of the encounter, which began with a cryptic email and ended with her wandering half clothed through a college dorm, according to a criminal complaint filed in Rice County Court.

This is very good: Spokane Valley teen blends lacrosse and budding business.

Now 14 and preparing for his freshman year at Central Valley High School, Gibbons’ passion for the game has grown to the point where he plays on a select team in the summer and he’s eager to join the strong lacrosse program associated with CV next spring. And he’s turned his love of the game into a business. “I saw a business movie and I thought it was interesting; I’ve been thinking about going into business,” he said. “My mom runs a nonprofit business. I talked with her, and we came up with the idea of collecting lacrosse gear for other kids. It sounded like it would make for a good, nonprofit business. There’s nothing like it out there.”

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

How much do you need to be “wealthy” in Philadelphia?

Charles Schwab recently released the results of its first-ever Modern Wealth Index survey, which assessed the thoughts and attitudes that 500 Philadelphia residents have about money. To come up with the city’s overall Modern Wealth Index score of 47, Schwab looked at four factors: goal setting and financial planning; saving and investing; staying on track; and, confidence in reaching financial goals. The score puts Philly just below the national average of 49.

“With an average score of 47, Philadelphians are pretty comparable to average Americans, but there’s still plenty of room for improvement,” said Michael Martin, a VP and financial consultant at Charles Schwab’s Philadelphia branch. “In particular, Philly residents trail average Americans the most when it comes to financial planning, so that should be a focus area.” And what else does this number represent? To get a better sense of what money means to the City of Brotherly Love, take a look at some other findings from Schwab’s survey.

Snail slime is the hottest cosmetic product right now.
Snail slime. On your face. All for the sake of beauty. And, hopefully, a handsome profit for U.S. retailers looking to push it along with other K-beauty trends into the mainstream -- if people can get over the "ick" factor. Korean consumers are on a constant hunt for innovative products and unusual natural ingredients. Now, the decade-old craze is making its way to everyday consumers in the U.S., as K-beauty products jump from niche websites and slide onto the shelves at Target Corp., CVS Health Corp. and Ulta Beauty Inc. stores. The retailers earlier this year announced expansions of the merchandise.
“People used to talk about French skincare,” said Sarah Chung, the head of Landing International Inc. which partnered on Ulta’s Korean collection. "We don’t really call it that anymore. Right now we say it’s K-beauty, but it’s really just great skincare.”
