He led his team to its first NCAA Championship while notching his name in the school’s record books enough to become the most decorated lacrosse player in the history of the program. Ben Reeves, the captain of the 2018 team that beat Duke on Monday in the national title game, has been named Yale’s first Tewaaraton Award winner. The 18th annual Tewaaraton Award Ceremony, celebrating the best player in the collegiate game, was tonight at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian.

Sam Apuzzo was announced tonight as the winner of the 2018 women’s Tewaaraton Award, which is awarded to the best D1 NCAA lacrosse player every year. Apuzzo is the second BC athlete to win the top award in her sport this year, as Daryl Watts won the Patty Kazmaier Award for women’s hockey.
Apuzzo led the Eagles with 88 points, 41 assists, and 129 points over just 24 games. She also led the Eagles with 163 draw control wins and 31 caused turnovers. Overall, Apuzzo was 3rd in the NCAA in points and goals and 10th in draw controls per game.
A strong all-around player, Apuzzo was instrumental in helping lead BC to an undefeated regular season and a second straight NCAA Finals appearance. She was also the ACC Attacker of the Year and was named to the Inside Lacrosse Division I Media All-American First Team.

Playing in the program’s first sectional championship game since before any of the team members were born, the General Brown boys varsity lacrosse team had to wait out upwards of an hour in the unseasonably sweltering heat on Wednesday for the opening faceoff against No. 3 Christian Brothers Academy. The Lions did eventually get to Liverpool High School to compete in the Class D title match — where they fell 14-12 — but a bus breakdown near the tail-end of their lengthy journey south led to the contest beginning approximately 45 minutes late.
“We were cruising right along, 55-60 miles an hour, and the front passenger-side tire blew, and the bus driver did an awesome job to keep it under control and to get us off to the side of the road,” General Brown coach Rich Purvis said after the loss. “Then Liverpool sent a bus to pick us up, which was awesome on their part. (The game was) a little delayed. I don’t know if it really had anything to do with the outcome of the game. I think (it was) more weather and not having enough possessions.”
A high school boys lacrosse coach and one of his student athletes were cited as the reason for a dramatic police arrival in Massachusetts when an altercation was called in and found to involve an athlete and the coach. As reported by New England Cable News, among other sources, Littleton Police were investigating the incident, which was called in Tuesday during a junior varsity lacrosse game. No one was reported injured in the incident, and it remains possible that no charges will be filed.
In fact, just about everything is still possible at this point. In this case, the lack of information being shared with the media appears to reflect a genuine lack of information on behalf of the police department itself. The town’s police chief and superintendent of schools authored a joint statement that committed to work together, “to sort out the facts about what occurred during yesterday’s game,” but not anything more or less.
What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
A New Jersey realty company says that one of its advertisements lost during Superstorm Sandy in 2012 has been found washed up on a French beach. Diane Turton Realtors, a company headquartered in Point Pleasant Beach, shared photos of the sandy sign on Facebook Wednesday. Sixty-four-year-old Hannes Frank tells The New York Times that he sent an email to the realty company after he found the sign washed up near Bordeaux, France.
In space, no one can hear you daydream. And at two recent screenings of “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” one could easily wonder how far the audiences were mentally drifting, because at both, the origin-story spinoff was met with the deadliest sound a movie can meet: Silence. Not respectful or hushed-into-riveted silence, but the dead quietude of the only marginally engaged.
What other “Star Wars” film, across four decades, have you been able to say that about? Near quiet, over two hours - as eerily muted as the sound of one Han clapping. Is that the truest sound of a spinoff franchise dying? The best “Star Wars” moments have always spurred rousing cheers from the popcorn crowds. The awe-inspiring crawl and special effects, the pivoting plot twists, the coolest of duels, the grand entrances and the fatal exits - all the highlights have prompted “ooh’s” and “ahh’s.”
Yet it’s not just that. Harrison Ford’s wry one-liners have long prompted genuine laughs. Jar Jar Binks’s moronic one-liners have long elicited groans and audible mocking. And even “Star Wars’” most divisive moments - see: “Jedi, Last” - have drawn a wide range of irrepressible noises. They’re all the sounds of a movie affecting the viewer on some core level.
