College Crosse News.

Our newest Crossecast is up, with special guest Jac Coyne!!

Let’s build more (lacrosse) walls!

Mansfield High School will soon have another recognizable symbol of the town and its varied athletic programs: a lacrosse wall. School committee members Tuesday unanimously approved a proposal by Mansfield Youth Lacrosse to erect a 15-foot-high, 30-foot-long concrete wall next to an existing athletic field to be used by lacrosse and other community athletes. The wall, which will be made of precast sections, is expected to be ready by Sept. 1 and allows lacrosse players to practice their passing and throwing skills. Other athletes, such as soccer enthusiasts, could use the same wall to practice skills such as passing and volleying.

Congrats to Brown head coach Mike Daly on getting inducted into the Massachusetts Lacrosse Hall of Fame.

Brown men's lacrosse coach Mike Daly was inducted into the Massachusetts Lacrosse Hall of Fame on Saturday night at the Boston Cannons vs. Florida Launch MLL game in Boston. Joining coach Daly in the celebration were former Brown players, who are on the Launch and Cannons rosters, as well as current and former Brown assistant coaches, several of his former Tufts players, family and friends.

Chris did a great write-up on the Hampton Pirates, their 2017 season, and how they look going into 2018.

As the offseason continues, we’ll take a look back at the 2017 season for each individual team in our 2017 dissections. The individual team dissections will go in reverse order of my final Power Rankings from the end of the season. If you missed any of our team or conference recaps, you can check them out here. Our first team up are the Hampton Pirates!

The 28th annual Lake Placid Summit Classic started yesterday!!

Great story out of Minnesota as local lacrosse teams rally to raise money for one player with Lymphoma.

Shout out to Bucknell men’s lacrosse great Sid Jamieson on being elected to the IMLCA Hall of Fame.

Legendary Bucknell lacrosse coach Sid Jamieson has had plenty of practice writing Hall of Fame acceptance speeches, and now he will get to pen another as he has been elected to the Intercollegiate Men’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IMLCA) Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony will take place on Friday, Dec. 8 at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront. Tickets are available for purchase at Jamieson, who launched Bucknell's varsity men's lacrosse program in 1968 and coached the team for 38 years, will be joined in the IMLCA Hall of Fame Class of 2017 by Dave Cottle (Loyola University Maryland and University of Maryland), Avery Blake Sr. (Swarthmore College, University of Pennsylvania), Tom Hayes (Drexel University, Rutgers University), Jack Kaley (New York Institute of Technology), Dick Szlasa (United States Naval Academy, Washington and Lee, Towson University), and Morris Touchstone (United States Military Academy, Yale University).

Cascade wants to make lacrosse helmets using a 3-D printer.

I didn’t play any full-contact sports in school, like football or rugby, but I still came home with my fair share of minor injuries from marching band practices and competitions (playing the flute can be dangerous, too). While 3D printing technology has been used to improve sporting equipment, athletic shoes, and sports prosthetics, and even bring games from the field to the table top, perhaps most importantly it’s used often to keep players safe from injuries. Thanks to the customizable nature of 3D printing, there have been 3D printed shin guards and mouthguards, a binding system for snowboards, and helmets for sports like biking, football, and lacrosse. The last is the focus of a recent case study by LulzBot, which is owned by Aleph Objects in Colorado. While 3D printing has been used in the past to make lacrosse sticks, now we’re seeing the technology being put to use to improve on the game’s headgear. Cascade Lacrosse is the top producer of lacrosse helmets in the world, and has been using LulzBot’s industrial-grade desktop 3D printers to improve its prototyping capabilities.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Chris Christie got into a Cubs fan’s face while holding a large plate of nachos.

Joseph, a relative of Hutchison's, later explained what led up to the confrontation:

"When he initially was going up the stairs I yelled his name. He was already quite a bit past me, and 30 feet away I yelled his name and told him that he sucked. ... I called him a hypocrite because I thought it needed to be said. He then turned around and walked all the way back towards me and got up in my face for what seemed like a long time, but was probably only about 30 seconds or a minute."

Joseph said the former presidential candidate made contact with him with his knee and asked if he wanted to "do something" and "start something."

World/National News.

Facebook wants to own your face.

When Chicago resident Carlo Licata joined Facebook in 2009, he did what the 390 million other users of the world’s largest social network had already done: He posted photos of himself and friends, tagging the images with names. But what Licata, now 34, didn’t know was that every time he was tagged, Facebook stored his digitized face in its growing database.
Angered this was done without his knowledge, Licata sued Facebook in 2015 as part of a class action lawsuit filed in Illinois state court accusing the company of violating a one-of-a-kind Illinois law that prohibits collection of biometric data without permission. The suit is ongoing. Facebook denied the charges, arguing the law doesn’t apply to it. But behind the scenes, the social network giant is working feverishly to prevent other states from enacting a law like the one in Illinois.
Since the suit was filed, Facebook has stepped up its state lobbying, according to records and interviews with lawmakers. But rather than wading into policy fights itself, Facebook has turned to lower-profile trade groups such as the Internet Association, based in Washington, D.C., and the Illinois-based trade association CompTIA to head off bills that would give users more control over how their likenesses are used or whom they can be sold to.
