College Crosse News

Shout out to The Kid Chris for this great recap of all the action from yesterday.

We expected some good lacrosse. We got some extras thrown in there as well.
Big Ten Semifinals

The Terps defeated the Scarlet Knights for the second time this season, this time winning by three goals. Bubba Fairman and Jared Bernhardt each delivered three goals of their own in the win, while Logan Wisnauskas dished out three assists with two goals of this own. Austin Henningsen went 11-of-18 from the face-off X, and Dan Morris made 12 saves. Rutgers is once again awaiting their fate Sunday night.

That Hopkins vs. Ohio State brawl was no joke!

Yale is playing Penn today 6:00 on ESPNU. You can find the Live Stats link here. At 8:30 Cornell is going up against Brown, also on ESPNU, and you can find the link to the Live Stats for the game here.

Yale lacrosse team looks to add Ivy league tournament title.

Sweating through a summerlike sun beating down on the practice field is a sure sign that the postseason is upon a college lacrosse team.

As the weather heats up the ultimate goal for Yale, the country’s No. 1 team, is a national championship. The Bulldogs are eager to prove themselves in the NCAA tournament, where they’ve struggled to get past the first round.

But the first order of business is the Ivy League tournament, which begins tonight at Columbia’s Lawrence A. Wien Stadium. Yale (12-2) has won the past three championships and five in six seasons. It relishes the opportunity to claim final Ivy bragging rights.

“It’s the people you see year in and year out, during the lacrosse season and in the summer,” said Yale junior midfielder Jack Tigh. “It’s one of those things you dream about growing up and can always talk about even after graduation. Whenever I see alumni they’re still talking about winning the Ivy League championship. It’s something we take great pride in.”

After a 2 year break, Cornell is back in the Ivy League Tournament.

Six seasons have come and gone since Cornell men’s lacrosse won an Ivy League Championship, including five since the team reached the finals and two years since it has even competed in the event.

But following its absence from the tournament, the Red (10-4, 4-2 Ivy) has reestablished itself as a legitimate contender in the conference, returning to the postseason this weekend with the hopes of climbing back on top.

Cornell had a strong regular-season Ivy campaign with its only two losses bookending conference play. The first loss came early in the season against now-No. 1 Yale, a likely finals opponent for the Red if it can get past Brown (6-8, 3-3 Ivy) in the semifinal on Friday evening.

Last weekend, Cornell coughed up its final game to Princeton in a 14-8 struggle as sophomore standout attack Jeff Teat was shut down, failing to record a single point. It was also the first time the group netted less than 10 goals since March 4 against then-No. 1 Albany.

Exasperated Lacrosse Coach Emails Parents: “Most Of Our Team Focuses On The Fortnight Video Game Instead.”

Find a kid with a tablet or computer these days, and chances are they’re watching or playing Fortnite. The online video game in which players build stairs and walls and then shoot each other has spread like a virus, and it’s derailed at least one boys lacrosse team, to the point where the coach sent out a desperate email to parents in April about how the menace that is “Fortnight” has even sunk its hooks into his own son.

A tipster sent us this email, and in the interest of keeping it whimsical, we have lightly redacted the coach’s plea. The line and paragraph breaks have not been altered.

Here’s another great podcast from Fred Opie: University of Maryland alum Jake Reed is the Founder and Director of the Nike Blue Chip Lacrosse Camp. We unpack his lacrosse journey from Delaney high school in Maryland, how he almost didn’t attend Maryland.

The baddest man in the NLL, Tom Schreiber, sat down for a nearly 30 minutes long interview with Fox5NY.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Oh boy: Mystery pooper at N.J. high school’s track turned out to be superintendent, cops say.

The Kenilworth school superintendent charged Monday with defecating in public was caught in the act at the Holmdel High School football field and track after surveillance was set up due to human feces being found “on a daily basis,” police said.

Thomas Tramaglini, 42, lives about 3 miles from Holmdel High School in neighboring Aberdeen. He was running at the track on the athletic fields at 5:50 a.m. before he was arrested. Track coaches and staff at Holmdel High School told the district’s resource officer that they found human feces on or near the football field and track daily, Holmdel police said in a statement Thursday.

World/National News

Facebook dating service sounds like it’s already a disaster.

The love-seeking singles of Facebook’s new dating service, privacy experts say, may not be prepared for what they’ll encounter: sham profiles, expanded data gathering and a new wave of dating fraud.

Facebook - under fire for viral misinformation, fake accounts and breaches of trust - said this week it will soon offer a new dating service designed to help its users find love, giving the world’s largest social network a uniquely intimate vantage point on its users’ romantic desires and personal lives.

The service will allow people older than 18 to create a dating profile - separate from their main profile and invisible to their friends - that it shows to potential matches based on common interests, dating preferences, location and mutual friends, company officials said.
