GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for December 10, 2018.

College Crosse News

Chris broke down Georgetown’s 2019 schedule here.

The Georgetown Hoyas are the 44th team in our 2019 schedule preview series and the sixth and final team from the Big East. The Hoyas finished 12-5 in 2018 and 3-2 in Big East play. Georgetown won the Big East title over Denver, but lost to Johns Hopkins in overtime in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Circle These Dates

2/23 (vs. Towson): Daniel Bucaro led the Hoya offense with four goals and two assists on 15 shots in a two-goal win last year over the Tigers. At the time, Towson was still finding out who they were, but with a good end to last season, they hope to be a tough team to play come 2019.

3/2 (at Hofstra): This game was cancelled last year due to Georgetown getting stuck in the middle of a snowstorm. I was really excited for this matchup, one that was going to see if the Hoyas were contenders or not after starting 4-0. That might be the case again this season.

Here’s another great video by Florida Tech Lacrosse.

Fans got their first look at the San Diego Seals after the team had an open practice on Saturday.

San Diegans will have their first opportunity to watch the city’s National Lacrosse League expansion team Saturday evening when the San Diego Seals conduct a free open practice and intersquad scrimmage at Valley View Casino Center.

Arena doors will open at 6 p.m., with the practice starting at 6:15 p.m. Coaches and players will provide insight to fans throughout the practice about themselves and the value and importance of each drill.

It looks like the open practice was a hit.

The GAWD Ed Lee of the Baltimore Sun took a look at Loyola’s 2019 calendar.
Loyola Maryland has released its schedule for the 2019 season. Here is a breakdown of the slate that awaits the Greyhounds, who went 13-4 last spring, collected their third straight Patriot League championship, and lost, 8-7, in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament to eventual national champion Yale.

10: For the first time in 10 years, Loyola is scheduled to clash with Rutgers on Feb. 23. The two sides last met on April 4, 2009, as members of the Eastern College Athletic Conference when the Greyhounds secured a 12-9 win.

9: In the last nine years, the Greyhounds own a 5-4 record in season openers. They will begin next spring against Virginia on Feb. 9, but are 1-4 against the Cavaliers in season openers.

Vikings in the community.

Ryan is going to be excited about this.

Speaking of Ryan, he did a great job with our new Twitter banner.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Capogiro Gelato to close all Philly stores after 16 years.

Scoop one out for an OG of Philadelphia’s second restaurant renaissance. Capogiro, the gelateria whose silky, scratch-made Italian-style frozen desserts earned international acclaim, has announced that it will cease operations after Sunday, December 9th — nearly 16 years to the day after it opened.

In a statement released this afternoon, owners John and Stephanie Reitano announced the sad news for the city’s dessert scene while expressing gratitude for the company’s customers, staff, partners, and suppliers. The company, which was known for working with local farmers for seasonal produce and dairy, earned the number one spot in a global ranking of the world’s top ice cream makers by National Geographic in 2011.
