The Monmouth Hawks are the 45th team in our 2019 schedule preview series and the fourth team from the MAAC. The Hawks finished 7-8 in 2018 and 4-2 in MAAC play. Monmouth lost to Detroit Mercy in the MAAC semifinals.
Circle These Dates
2/16 (vs. Princeton): Last season nearly began with a bang for the Hawks against the Tigers. Despite being down 5-1 at halftime, Monmouth scored seven of the 10 goals in the second half to force overtime, but Riley Thompson’s double overtime tally avoided a near upset for Princeton. Bryce Wasserman departs for the Hawks, while Michael Sowers returns for the Tigers.
3/2 (at Saint Joseph’s): The battle of the Hawks has happened for the past five years since Monmouth began their program. All five games have gone in favor of Saint Joseph’s. Could that change this year with St. Joe’s going through a ton of changes to their roster?
3/23 (at Detroit Mercy): Monmouth was eight seconds away from a big conference win over the Titans before Brennan Kamish scored the game-tying goal to force overtime. In the extra session, Kamish scored the game-winner with 3:14 left in OT for the win. Detroit Mercy also took the rematch in the MAAC semifinals.

The Syracuse women’s lacrosse team has a new BALLER on the squad.
New episodes of Across College Lacrosse are here! This edition is a special two-part edition from the floor of the IMLCA Convention in Baltimore, Maryland this past weekend with four interviews in all.
In part 1, I sat down with legendary Cornell Big Red head coach Richie Moran and discussed with him his long career in coaching. We first met Thursday night at the Jack Sandler Leadership Foundation Dinner where coach Moran was the keynote speaker at the event. The dinner was a great event to honor a great person in Jack Sandler and celebrate supporting the sport for less advantaged student-athletes to attend high level lacrosse camps. A big thanks to Navy Midshipmen associate head coach Ryan Wellner for the last minute invite. He’s also a very good auctioneer. You can also donate to the foundation here.
In part 2, I sat down with three current coaches, two head coaches and one assistant (the first on the program). Towson Tigers head coach Shawn Nadelen, Fairfield Stags head coach Andy Copelan and Monmouth Hawks assistant Marc Zolchonock discuss their team’s upcoming seasons as well as aspects of coaching.
Here’s a great promo video for the University of Louisville men’s club lacrosse team.
Highbridge Green School sits in the South Bronx, somewhere between Yankee Stadium and the Bronx Zoo. It’s part of what was recently the poorest congressional district in the country. There’s no local bank. Few real restaurants. A lot of concrete.
But there’s something beautiful blooming on these barren blocks, and it can’t be found up the road at the New York Botanical Gardens.
“Lacrosse has kind of been this flower in the neighborhood,” said Dan Leventhal, who founded the lacrosse program at Highbridge Green as well as Bronx Lacrosse, the non-profit organization that grew out of it. “You play in your yard and other kids watch through the fence, and it grows from there.”
The Ohio Machine did a video recap of their recent convention.
In many ways, Hofstra University runs in the Tierney family blood – or at least in men’s lacrosse head coach Seth Tierney’s immediate family. Now entering his 13th season, Seth Tierney has been joined by not one, but two, more Tierneys in his son, Ryan, and daughter, Erin.
Seth Tierney came to Hofstra for the first time as an assistant coach in 1995. He stayed in that position until 2000 before leaving to hold the same position at Johns Hopkins University, where he graduated in 1991.
He played for the Blue Jays from 1988 to 1991, served as team captain in his senior season and helped lead the team to four NCAA Tournaments including the NCAA title game in 1989. As a senior, he was given the Hopkins’ Turnbull-Reynolds Award for exemplifying leadership and sportsmanship.
That has to be frigid.
Former Hopkins great Tucker Durkin talks about why he chose JHU.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Joanna and David Parker’s meal delivery service, Yumble, is already available in 26 states, including New Jersey. But in an effort to expand their operation -- just one entry in the current meal delivery craze -- the Bergen County couple appeared on the ABC reality series “Shark Tank” on Sunday. Their pitch paid off: the Parkers walked away with a $500,000 deal, courtesy of investor and longtime reality TV star Bethenny Frankel.
Yumble, which provides nut-free, kid-friendly meals like macaroni and cheese with veggie bites and pizza pockets with broccoli, caters to busy parents who wouldn’t mind forking over $5.99 to $7.99 per meal for a weekly delivery of table-ready, nutritionist-approved lunches and dinners for their children.
Google revealed Monday that its soon-to-be shuttered social network suffered from another security lapse, a software bug that could have allowed third-party apps and developers to gain access to 52 million users’ personal information without their permission.
For six days in November, an update to the underlying code of Google+ meant that apps seeking to access users’ profile information — including their names, email addresses, occupations and ages — could view that data even if it was “set to not-public,” Google said in a blog post. Apps could have accessed some non-public profile data that had been shared with a user, as well.
