What You Missed
Notre Dame and Drexel came out victorious in yesterday’s pair of games.
We tried a little experiment Saturday night and want to get your thoughts.
Like the other Saturdays we’ve had, the most recent Saturday was also crazy.
Lacrosse The Nation
I had the opportunity to jump on 1010 XL’s This Week in North Florida Lacrosse with Rya Carnicelli yesterday morning!

Here’s a recap of yesterday’s Notre Dame-Ohio State game from our friends over at Land-Grant Holy Land.
Here’s some highlights from Detroit Mercy’s win over Monmouth from Saturday:
One former Hermitage High School graduate, located just outside of Richmond, has found a way to combine his love of lacrosse and his family roots by playing for the Ugandan national team this summer. We get more from Bill Lohmann of the Richmond Times-Dispatch:
Lacrosse in Uganda is a much newer development. Fields of Growth International, a nonprofit organization with the support of the Federation of International Lacrosse, brought lacrosse to Uganda in 2010 as a way to combine service, education and sport, which then led to formation of Africa’s first national lacrosse team.
A couple of years later and thousands of miles away, [Trey] Kawugule was falling in love with lacrosse at Tuckahoe Middle School. He loved that it combined the elements of other games he played.
“I played football from the age of 8 and basketball and soccer, so I got the physicality of football, the ball movement of basketball and the sort of continuous running of soccer,” he said. “When I was introduced to it in seventh grade, I really didn’t look back after that.”
Around the same time, he was Googling around and discovered Uganda had a national team. The seed was planted.
“It was just sort of weirdly perfect timing,” Kawugule said.
After a very disappointing 1-13 season last year, the St. John’s Red Storm are 6-2 and knocking at the door of a possible top 20 ranking. All it’s all thanks to a new team mindset, notes Kyle Suta of The Torch:
Head Coach Jason Miller, now in his 12th season leading the Red Storm, cautioned that it is still very early in the season, but he is pleased with the way his team has played so far.
“I think we’ve been in position to win games because these guys have the ability to stay in the now,” Miller said. “They don’t get too far in front of themselves when things are going well, they just focus on that moment.”
After winning just one game last year, Miller realized that the culture of the team had been lacking. He knew he had to address it in order to be successful.
“We’ve spent a lot more time talking about our culture than we have in the past,” Miller said. “Talking about having a unified vision, a unified mission that everyone buys into.”
You’ve probably already saw this, but this is still fun to see.
Villanova’s back in the Final Four! Another win for the Greater Philadelphia area!
