The Towson Tigers are the 10th team in our 2019 schedule preview series and the third team from the CAA. The Tigers finished 7-8 in 2018 and 3-2 in CAA play. Despite the struggles throughout the regular season, Towson defeated Delaware in overtime in the CAA semifinals but fell to UMass in the CAA championship game.
Circle These Dates
2/23 (at Georgetown): While the Tigers had a down year last season, the Hoyas were the complete opposite. Georgetown won the Big East thanks to a group of young talent on offense including Daniel Bucaro. The Hoyas won last year’s battle by two goals and should be a good showcase between a high-powered offense against a solid defense.
2/27 (vs. Loyola): The annual midweek showdown against the Greyhounds is always one of the best midweek games of the college lacrosse season. Last year’s battle was competitive for the first three and a half quarters before the Greyhounds started to pull away in the final minutes. It did help the Tigers start to turn around their season, especially from goalie Shane Brennan.

5: The Tigers will play only five games at Johnny Unitas Stadium next spring. That’s the fewest number of home games since the 2009 squad also played only five times before its home crowd. https://t.co/t3VDk3m4iz

StringKing with a pretty great commercial here.
The Kid heard that Major League Lacrosse had a supplemental draft.
Interesting thing about the MLL Player Pool this year, and it might be something new. There was a $10 fee to enter for new players. pic.twitter.com/RXpR6gSZxv— Chris Jastrzembski (@CFJastrzembski) October 24, 2018
Harlem Lacrosse recently announced that it will absorb the management and operations of Boston-based MetroLacrosse thereby adding to its existing programs in Boston. Moving forward, more than 300 children across 10 Boston school sites will benefit from Harlem Lacrosse’s innovative school-based model. This exciting move also strengthens opportunities for Boston’s youth by consolidating support and services through Harlem Lacrosse’s academic, athletic and personal intervention. This growth initiative is made possible by support from the New Balance Foundation which will accelerate Harlem Lacrosse’s growth strategy in Boston and around the country.
This kid is going places.
The Drexel lacrosse team has announced its captains for the upcoming season. Seniors Cam Harris, Marshal King, Matt Klinges and junior Will Stabbert were selected to the honor this past week. Harris appeared in all 13 games a year ago and is one of the team’s top defensive midfielder. He chipped in with three goals as a junior. King, a Second Team All-CAA performer a year ago, had 18 goals and 11 assists in 2018. Klinges is a versatile defender who was a key player both on defense and as a wing on the face-off unit. Stabbert, the only junior in the group, is a two-year starter on defense for head coach Brian Voelker’s team.
I really like this video by RIT men’s lacrosse.
In addition to the league, the individual teams issued statements responding to the announcement of the creation of the PLL. One difference between the two leagues that was emphasized by the MLL teams was their connection to the communities in which they play. While the PLL will be a touring league, with all teams playing at one site, in one city, at a time, MLL teams represent various communities that they not only play in front of, but also are involved in.
The MLL fans, specifically the ones in Denver, were an additional reason for Adler to stick around.
“Playing for Denver is such an incredible experience with the Fourth of July game,” he said. “Playing in front of 30,000 people, in all my college athletics if you combine it and multiply it by five, it’s probably still not as much.
“I want to play for a fan base, for a home team,” he added. “That makes winning a championship more special. We’re not just representing a team; we’re representing a city. That’s a factor for me.”
Fancy feet at High Point.
A faculty member in the Department of Athletic Training, School of Health and Medical Sciences, received a $13,965 grant to support his athletic training research. Richard J. Boergers, Ph.D., ATC, Associate Professor, believes his project titled “The Effect of Lacrosse Protective Equipment on Time to First Chest Compression and First Automated External Defibrillator Shock” will help change clinical practice guidelines for the pre-hospital care of athletes suffering acute cardiac events.
Dr. Boergers is the co-principle investigator with Dr. Thomas Bowman from Lynchburg University whom he has collaborated with for a number of years in this area of research. US Lacrosse, the sport’s national governing body, has funded this project through their Sports Science and Safety Research Grant.
Notre Dame’s putting in that work.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Three isn’t quite enough. Eight is far too many. But that sweet spot between your fourth and seventh beers? That’s when the best bar arguments tend to occur. I’m taking up a stool in Passyunk Avenue’s narrow front room, coated in the ruddy neon glow of a Budweiser sign on full blast. Firmly ensconced in the five-to-six-pints neighborhood, I’m trying hard not to catch you-look-drunk glimpses of myself in the mirrored back bar, a thrift-shop bit of carved wood decorated with an Eagles clock, a plush Phanatic, and a crumpled dollar bill on which someone has scribbled “TRUST THE PROCESS” in black marker.
Bookings started to fall sharply as the 2008 financial crisis curbed corporate spending and made public displays of wealth unfashionable, so over the past decade scores of airlines have ripped out some or all of their cushiest and priciest seats.
Carriers today say they may have cut too far, especially as the ranks of the super rich continue to expand and the stigma attached to conspicuous consumption has faded. With the global economy back in growth mode and the industry coming off three straight years of fat profits, airlines are reintroducing or revamping first-class cabins at a cost that can exceed $100,000 just to manufacture each seat. Long-haul airlines say charging more than $10,000 for a round-trip ticket in the premium cabin is a profitable way to stand out in an industry that’s come to be dominated by discounters. “First class is developing better than we’d imagined three or four years back,” Lufthansa Chief Executive Officer Carsten Spohr told staff in a recent briefing. “We’re looking at routes where it makes sense, where we have the customers who want it.”.
