UNC announced team captains for 2019 yesterday.

It might not be quite time for the season to get started yet, but the UNC men’s lacrosse team announced on Tuesday that senior attackman Timmy Kelly and junior midfielder Justin Anderson will be the Tar Heels’ captains when it does. Kelly was third on the team last season with 21 goals despite missing some time in the middle of the year with an injury. He also contributed on UNC’s 2016 national championship and 2017 ACC championship winning teams. Anderson was also a key player as a freshman in 2017, while also scoring 10 goals and dishing out nine assists last year in 2018. The duo will attempt to revive head coach Joe Breschi’s program, which missed both the ACC and NCAA Tournaments last season after winning just one of its final eight games of the year following a 6-0 start.

Check out this great highlight video of Maryland’s scrimmage with Cornell from STX Lacrosse.

WABI with a nice segment on Sue Taylor heading to the Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association Hall of Fame.

Sue Tyler is heading to the Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association Hall of Fame next month. The former UMaine Athletic Director led Maryland to two national titles while at Maryland in the 80’s. After her tenure at UMaine Tyler was back coaching locally. For several years she was the Bangor high field hockey coach. She also won a national title with Maryland in that sport and is the only division one coach to win NCAA championships in two sports.

Good to see NJIT getting that work in.

Speaking of putting in work! The lads at Lafayette were doing their thing as well.

From US Lacrosse: Mandatory background checks now required for adult coach memberships.

US Lacrosse considers player safety to be among its highest priorities and takes seriously the responsibility to help protect athletes from abuse within the sports environment. It was that commitment that motivated the sport’s the national governing body for lacrosse to implement mandatory background screenings as a proactive approach to keeping predatory behavior out of lacrosse. Effective October 15, 2018, the national background screening becomes part of all adult coach membership purchases and renewals. US Lacrosse is absorbing the cost of the background check, yielding no changes to the direct cost of membership for coaches. A coach who fails to initiate the national background screening within 10 days of joining the organization will have their membership converted to the Fan/Friend category, will not have the insurance coverage benefit, and is restricted from coaching.

Get lifted with the Villanova Wildcats.

That’s a spicy meatball: Uber proposes it’s worth $120B for its IPO.

Uber Technologies Inc. recently received proposals from Wall Street banks valuing the ride-hailing company at as much as $120 billion in an initial public offering that could take place early next year, according to people familiar with the matter. That eye-popping figure is nearly double Uber’s valuation in a fundraising round just two months ago and more than General Motors Co. , Ford Motor Co. and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV are worth combined. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley MS 5.68% last month delivered the valuation proposals to Uber, the people said. These documents, which typically advise on how to position shares to potential investors, are a common step before banks are formally hired to underwrite IPOs.
