Saint Joseph’s 12, Penn 11: This was a game many thought the Quakers could win. Unfortunately, they did not, as the Hawks held off a late Penn rally in the fourth quarter to get their second all-time win against the Quakers. St. Joe’s got things started with a 4-0 bookended by Kyle Cain goals before Kevin McGeary gave Penn two tallies with under a minute left in the first quarter. The teams would exchange goals up until midway through the fourth quarter, when Shane Fable and Chris Blewitt extended the Hawk lead to four once again. The Quakers responded with three scores in 1:24, but could not get a fourth as time expired while Penn was on man-up. Blewitt finished with four goals and an assist, while Mike Adler made seven saves. McGeary also had similar numbers to Blewitt and Tyler Dunn scored a hat-trick to go along with his assist.
The Hawks tied a school record with their eighth straight win. As for Penn, they’re currently 6-7. You can’t make the Big Dance if you’re under .500. Those are the rules.

Here’s a YouTube review of Casey Powell Lacrosse 2018.
The Mahtomedi Lacrosse team was on the practice field Monday despite several inches of snowfall. However, the team was using snow shovels instead of lacrosse sticks to get their workout in. The team is unable to practice until the field is clear, and they have some important matches coming up.
Thanks to everyone who sent in some #SpringSport pictures the other day.

As a senior and an avid follower of Cornell Athletics, I have seen many great players for the Red in the past four years. Two of the best were Brianne Jenner ’15, former forward for women’s hockey and an Olympic gold medalist for Canada, as well as Gabe Dean ’17, star wrestler, two-time NCAA champion and four-time All-American. Yet, the very best Cornell athlete in the last four years may very well be Cornell lacrosse sophomore attack Jeff Teat.
In just his sophomore season, Teat is already making his mark on the Cornell lacrosse record books. After racking up 145 points in his final season at the Hill Academy (Ont.), he had a breakout freshman season at Cornell. He broke the freshman scoring record for the Red with 72 points, previously set by Rob Pannell ’13, one of the greatest NCAA men’s lacrosse players ever. Teat averaged two and a half goals per game as a freshman, nearly a hat trick in each contest. He would finish first in the Ivy League in both points and assists per game.
Prior to this season, Teat was named an Inside Lacrosse Preseason All-American and placed on watch list for the Tewaaraton Award, which is presented annually to the best player in college lacrosse. This shows the hype around Teat for his sophomore campaign, and he certainly has delivered. Through 12 games, his 33 goals and 44 assists total to 77 points — over six per game. It’s no surprise that he currently leads the country in points per game.
Persistence paid off for one Marquette University men’s lacrosse player. He wasn’t even on the team his freshman year, but now as a junior, he’s contributing on the field. Marquette junior, Nick Singleton, and the lacrosse team had a missed connection.
“He came to our camp actually. We saw him play at a couple of recruiting events and he came to our camp the summer before his junior season, and we knew about him and at that time, we just didn’t think he was ready to participate at our level,” said Joe Amplo, Marquette lacrosse coach.
“I got recruited early on in high school, probably my sophomore year, the fall of my sophomore year. Never ended up working out. By my senior year, for whatever reasons, went with different guys,” said Singleton.
What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
It’s a great week for Wawa — and for Philadelphia. We’ve known since December that the Independence Mall area is getting a Wawa, but now we’re happy to tell you that the location will serve as the biggest in the entire world.
That’s right: the biggest Wawa in the world is coming to Philadelphia. (Sorry, D.C. — your puny 9,200 square-foot Wawa will have to make room.)
Wawa President and CEO Chris Gheysens announced plans for the new store on Thursday at the opening celebration of Philly’s newest Wawa, which is at 22nd and South streets. The chain now has some 790 stores.
Apple Inc. plans to integrate recently acquired magazine app Texture into Apple News and debut its own premium subscription offering, according to people familiar with the matter. The move is part of a broader push by the iPhone maker to generate more revenue from online content and services.
The Cupertino, California company agreed last month to buy Texture, which lets users subscribe to more than 200 magazines for $9.99 a month. Apple cut about 20 Texture staff soon after, according to one of the people.
The world’s largest technology company is integrating Texture technology and the remaining employees into its Apple News team, which is building the premium service. An upgraded Apple News app with the subscription offering is expected to launch within the next year, and a slice of the subscription revenue will go to magazine publishers that are part of the program, the people said. They asked not to be identified discussing private plans. Apple declined to comment.
