College Crosse News.

Great video of the 2017 OSU alumni game.

The Tunnel to Towers 5K was yesterday in New York City. The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation honors the sacrifice of firefighter Stephen Siller who laid down his life to save others on September 11, 2001. Several teams, including the men’s & women’s lacrosse team at Hofstra particpated in the 5K.

Here’s a great picture of the Hofstra men’s & women’s teams after the race.

Manhattan participated in the Tunnel to Towers 5K yesterday as well.

The Marist men’s lacrosse team was also there for the 5K.

Here are some nice pics from the Duke alumni game over the weekend.

Cornell was out running for a good cause as well this past weekend.

Nice post here by our favorite Mother of Dragons, Marisa Ingemi, on Chris Hogan.

Every once and a while, an athlete who has played two collegiate sports will make it big in one. Tony Gonzalez famously played college basketball. Wayne Gretzky played lacrosse. Jim Brown played lacrosse. And new New England Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan played lacrosse. “I was actually really into baseball,” Hogan said. “But then I hurt my shoulder. My dad had a stick in the garage and I started playing.” Hogan was a natural lacrosse player, having not beginning to play until his freshman year of high school. Some accounts have said he could shoot over 100 mph, was named the state player of the year his senior season, and he was offered a scholarship to play at Penn State.

This kid literally travels roughly 2 hours a day for practice. Now that’s commitment.

For Shikellamy High School freshman Noah Young, lacrosse practice is not a chore. It's a way of life.

Young, 14, arrives early and stays late after driving with his family nearly two hours to York County to practice the sport in which he grew to love. "Back in fifth grade, I didn't have a soccer team to play for and my uncle told me about lacrosse and I liked it," Young said. "Ever since then I just wanted to continue to get better."

It all began for Young when he met Andy Howell at a birthday party. Howell, who was a coach for the Central Susquehanna Lacrosse Club that meets in Winfield, asked Young if he would consider playing the sport.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?.

Shout out to our parent company: Chefs Vernick and Vongerichten to open restaurants at new Comcast tower.

Globe-trotting chef/restaurateur Jean-Georges Vongerichten and hometown hero Greg Vernick — his onetime protégé and the James Beard Award-winning owner of Vernick Food & Drink — will open restaurants at the Comcast Technology Center, now rising above Center City, a representative of Comcast confirmed to The Inquirer. The restaurants — whose names and precise concepts have not been disclosed — are to open in summer 2018, as Comcast and the Four Seasons Hotel occupy the 60-story building at 18th and Arch Streets. Vongerichten’s restaurant will be set up at the top, off the lobby of the 217-room Four Seasons, while Vernick will have space at the foot of the tower for his second restaurant, the representative confirmed.

The Robot Doc will see you now: “Chinese robot dentist is first to fit implants in patient’s mouth without any human involvement.”

Although there were human medical staff present during the operation, they did not play an active role while it was being carried out. The one-hour procedure took place in Xian, Shaanxi, on Saturday, according to Science and Technology Daily. The implants were fitted to within a margin of error of 0.2-0.3mm, reaching the required standard for this kind of operation, experts said. The technology was designed to overcome mainland China’s shortage of qualified dentists and frequent surgical errors.
