GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for November 8, 2018.
College Crosse News
The The Marist Red Foxes are the 15th team in our 2019 schedule preview series and the first team from the MAAC. The Red Foxes finished 3-12 in 2018 and 2-4 in MAAC play. Marist failed to make the MAAC Tournament and had their worst record since 2009.
Circle These Dates
2/16 (at Air Force): These two teams have had enjoyable games in the past, including last year’s 8-7 win by the Falcons. Both teams had tough 2018 seasons for different reasons, but they both hope to return to the top of their respective conference in 2019 and return a good chunk of their players.
3/8 (at North Carolina): It’s evident that Marist is beefing up their nonconference schedule, with proof coming last year with the Red Foxes taking on Maryland and Yale. The results didn’t go their way, but UNC can be an interesting team as they showed last year. Wouldn’t be very surprised that Marist would be able to make it a game and perhaps upset the Tar Heels.
3/16 (vs. Monmouth): After being on the road for having the first five games of the season, the Red Foxes finally have their home opener. That’s rare to have, but it could have positive effects on the program during conference play. Monmouth has risen as a good program in the MAAC, highlighted by their win over Marist in the 2017 MAAC title game.

#Marist #lacrosse announces its 2019 schedule. We will play a challenging non-conference schedule to prepare for @maacsports play. The schedule consists of five home games @marist and nine away contests featuring teams from the @patriotleague X2 @americaeast X2 @accsports X2 and the @southernconference . Should be a great spring! #EC34
The Brown Bears are the 14th team in our 2019 schedule preview series and the third team from the Big East. The Bears finished 6-9 in 2018 and 3-3 in Ivy League play. Brown fell to Cornell in the Ivy League semifinals, despite limiting Jeff Teat to only a goal and two assists in a 7-4 loss.
Circle These Dates
2/23 (vs. Stony Brook): Brown won this game handedly last year on Long Island. But there’s optimism this year with the Seawolves program. Bruno has slipped since Lars Tiffany left for Virginia, while Stony Brook is returning the bulk of their team from 2018 led by Ryland Rees. The Seawolves also beat the Bears 27-15 only two years ago.
3/2 (at Rutgers): Year 3 of this exciting matchup, with the previous two going to the Scarlet Knights by two goals each. Rutgers loses Jules Heningburg to graduation, but return guys like Kieran Mullins and hopefully Adam Charalambides on offense. Phil Goss has to be a stud in goal once again if the Bears want to beat the Scarlet Knights for the win.
The Yale Bulldogs are the 16th team in our 2019 schedule preview series and the fourth team from the Ivy League. The Bulldogs finished 17-3 in 2018 and a perfect 7-0 in Ivy League play. After losing to Cornell in the Ivy League Championship, Yale went the distance and won their first ever NCAA national championship against the Duke Blue Devils.
Circle These Dates
2/23 (vs. Penn State): Penn State gets one of their best offensive players back in Grant Ament. They were a bubble team last year and could have used Ament for a possible run to the NCAA Tournament. With him and Gerard Arceri full healthy, it could be one of the marquee nonconference matchups of the early season, especially with Arceri and TD Ierlan at the faceoff X.
3/2 (vs. UMass): The two teams played twice last year, but despite the margins in both games, Yale dominated for the majority of the game. The Minutemen made fourth quarter runs in both games but it just wasn’t enough in regards to time. Could UMass complete the upset this time?
This should be a great podcast.
Historians believe Harford Road originated as a Native American hunting trail. It’s no wonder, then, that this little slice of central Maryland, an 18-mile highway that curves alongside streams feeding into the Chesapeake Bay, would become the epicenter of a lacrosse movement.
Eight years ago, Marty Delaney of Parkville, Md., wanted to spread the word about Parkville Adaptive Lacrosse, which since 2001 had provided developmentally challenged athletes an opportunity to experience the sport in a safe, fun and nurturing environment. He contacted Carol Donovan, the owner of Low Pro Graphics, a custom print shop located on a quaint stretch of Harford Road, to order t-shirts for the 2011 US Lacrosse Convention in Baltimore.
“Don’t you want something on the back?” Donovan asked Delaney.
Delaney thought about it briefly and responded, “Lacrosse is for everyone.”
It was the perfect mantra.
I love this High Point Mic’d Up video.
We mic'ed up some of our senior leaders to hear their communication during practice. We were incredibly impressed with their leadership and the messages they delivered. #GoHPU pic.twitter.com/Um7nYMYuuI— High Point Lacrosse (@HPUMensLax) November 6, 2018
Kaleigh Thereault is at an age when everything should be simple in her life. At 8 years old, she loves mint chocolate chip ice cream, the feeling of Jonathan the Husky’s fur under her fingertips and the special VIP badge she’s been given to wear around her neck for the day. It’s Tuesday and Kaleigh is running around inside the Mark R. Shenkman Training Center on UConn’s campus. The first thing you notice about her is the boundless energy and excitement she exudes — all smiles and laughter. She’s playing with the UConn women’s lacrosse team, a group she feels at ease with despite the fact she’s met the players just a few times. While Kaleigh is supposed to be benefiting from being around the team, the team is learning from her because she’s been through something few can understand

Another corporate sponsorship deal has been finalized by Penn Athletics. On Monday, the department announced a new partnership with AXIA Time, a maker of Swiss watches. Penn alumnus and Penn Lacrosse Hall of Fame inductee John Kanaras founded AXIA Time this year and has quickly become partners with all eight schools in the Ivy League. This agreement with Penn came just under a week after the University struck a deal with Macquarie Investment Management, which put the corporation’s name on the Palestra court.

The Bellarmine University lacrosse team has been introducing their sport and offering instruction to kids in the area. Junior defender Eric Rubak said the Knights break into small groups and visit west Louisville elementary schools three times a week to teach the young students about lacrosse during their physical education periods. Rubak said the kids usually have very little awareness of the sport but quickly embrace it. “What’s great about this is you can see the kids start to really have fun with it through the various games we play, such as shooting on the coaches or sharks and minnows,” Rubak said. “Being the only Division I lacrosse team in the area, you can see the kids really look up to you, and I think that has made our players very thankful for the things we have and realize the impact small things like this service can do.”
Shout out to Penn State’s Jeff Tambroni on being inducted into the Hobart College Hall of Fame.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Yet another cord-cutting opportunity has arrived for Philadelphians: they can now watch local broadcast channels even though they may not be able to receive an over-the-air signal. Locast.org, a “public service to Americans” run by a New York-based non-profit, has launched its free local television broadcasting service in Philly. The service offers 15 broadcast channels from the Philadelphia market over the Internet for free: CBS3, ABC6, NBC10, WHYY, FOX29, CW, Telemundo, Univision, PHL17, WDPN, WDPN-4, WFMZ, WFMZ-2, WYBE, and WBPH.
Outlaw King star Chris Pine and director David Mackenzie are here with a wee Scottish history lesson for you. Aware that some people might not know much more about Scotland’s turbulent past other than William Wallace’s fight for freedom, Mary Queen of Scots’ beheading, or perhaps the Jacobite rising of 1745 — thank you, Outlander for that one — the Scottish director set out to show his country’s history is far more sonorous than Mel Gibson’s cry for freedom with Netflix’s Outlaw King.
