College Crosse News

Lafayette’s Mic’d Up series is back with another episode, this time with offensive coordinator, Scott Bieda.

Growing the game in Singapore.

High Point names its 2018-2019 captains.

High Point University men’s lacrosse head coach Jon Torpey named Chris Young, Tim Troutner Jr. and Davis Sampere as the team’s captains for the 2019 campaign. “These three young men have done a tremendous job of embodying all the characteristics of being a High Point Lacrosse Player,” coach Torpey said. “Chris, Timmy and Davis have all had different journeys to get to this point in their careers and all are very deserving of this honor.

Over the years, we have had some amazing young men in the position of captain and these three are no exception. We look forward to a great 2019 campaign with these three leading a group of hungry Panthers.”

Speaking of the Panthers, their new lids look so very fresh.

The backlash has begun: Avoid the Lacrosse Ball. Are you using a lacrosse ball to knead into your shoulder? Have rounded shoulders? Dr. G explains why you should stop with the lacrosse ball and change it up.

LaxBoy to appear on American Ninja Warrior Junior.

Nikko, a sixth grader at Fallston Middle School, was also exposed to ninja warrior at a birthday party at Alternate Routes and now trains 1-2 days a week. Nikko placed 20th in the NNL national championship for his age group earlier this year and is believed to hold the record for youngest person to scale the 14-foot warped wall at nine years old.

Nikko enjoys hanging out with his brother Alex, another ninja warrior-in-training, and spends his off-season playing lacrosse with the Fallston Lacrosse Club. He competed on the show with the nickname his lacrosse coach gave him, Neek Da Freak. Nikko is always willing to demonstrate his approach to obstacles and appreciates the accessibility of the sport.

I love the smell of lacrosse in the Bronx morning air.

From national title to MLL Rookie of the Year, the Chris Cloutier story.

The senior Carolina men’s lacrosse attackman sat in his living room in Chapel Hill, N.C. It was April 18, 2018. He had just gotten out of practice, preparing for the final game of the regular season. Postseason hopes were still intact depending on the result of its match the following Saturday against Notre Dame. Chris Cloutier sat down on the couches with his housemates and teammates and turned on the TV. It was an important night for the sport of lacrosse: draft night.

The Major League Lacrosse (the professional field lacrosse league), draft started at 6:30 p.m. There were high hopes of hearing a couple of the graduating Tar Heels’ names called and seeing their dreams of being a professional athlete come true and Cloutier was one of them. The first round, only nine picks, went by. Nothing for the Kitchener, Ontario native. Then the second round came and went. Followed by the third. After the third, the draft was taken off the air, to be continued, untelevised. Cloutier turned off the TV, thinking he just didn’t get drafted.


What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Chadwick Boseman is in Philly taping his newest movie.

The latest movie to shoot in Philadelphia, this one with “Black Panther” star Chadwick Boseman in the lead, was spotted filming in Chinatown and near the Pennsylvania Convention Center late Monday night and into Tuesday. The film is “17 Bridges,” and crews were first spotted in Philadelphia over the summer, around the time a casting call went out looking for local extras, saying they would need to be available starting Sept. 24 ... Last week, crews were also seen near 11th and Callowhill streets, throwing some people for a loop because of the NYPD cars and yellow New York cabs. Crews previously have been spotted in Rittenhouse, where an apartment at 2013 Locust St. was used as the residence for character Lucky played by Sienna Miller.

World/National News

Well this is a nutty story: Woman removed from flight bound for Cleveland due to ’emotional support’ squirrel.

Frontier Airlines said a woman had to be escorted off a flight bound for Cleveland Tuesday night due to a squirrel. Frontier said a passenger boarded Flight 1612 in Orlando, saying the squirrel was an emotional support animal. The airline said the passenger noted in her reservation that she was bringing an emotional support animal, but it was not indicated the animal was a squirrel. Frontier said “rodents, including squirrels are not allowed” on its flights.
