Holy Cross names Peter Burke interim head coach.

Director of Athletics Nathan Pine has announced that Peter Burke will be elevated to the role of interim head coach of the Holy Cross men’s lacrosse program for the 2018-19 season, effective immediately. Burke has served as an assistant coach with the program for the last three seasons, helping guide the team to Patriot League Tournament appearances in 2016 and 2017.

Burke, along with fellow assistant coach Nico Capron, led the Crusaders over the final five games of the 2018 season. Capron, who has served as an assistant coach for two seasons, will depart Holy Cross and has accepted an assistant coaching position at Colby College.

“Peter has done a very good job of leading our program since taking over in March. Given what the team was able to accomplish during the second half of last season, I’m confident this move is in the best interest of our student-athletes and the continued continuity of our men’s lacrosse program,” said Pine. “This is a well-deserved opportunity for Peter, and I’m eager to see our program thrive under his leadership and direction.”

Speaking of Holy Cross, they are up next in our Year In Review series.

Female lacrosse coach allegedly sent a 14-year old boy lewd photos.

A former White Bear Lake lacrosse coach repeatedly sent photos of her cleavage and exposed body to a 14-year-old boy, according to charges filed Friday. Amber J. Cron, 20, of Forest Lake, was charged by the White Bear Lake city attorney with one count of gross misdemeanor distribution of obscene materials. On June 10, Cron allegedly sent the boy three photos on Snapchat. The first was of her cleavage, the second was of her exposed breast and the last was of her cleavage again, the charge said. “[The boy] responded with a picture of his forehead, due in part to his confusion of the picture,” the criminal complaint said. The boy sent another picture of his forehead after the second photo, and unfollowed Cron after her last photo, the complaint said. “Cron attempted to add [the boy] back on Snapchat the following day, but he did not accept Cron’s request,” the complaint said.

Here’s another article about our favorite lacrosse-playing South Jersey Irish cousins, the McMenamins!

You would be hard-pressed to find a family that takes as much pride in its heritage as the McMenamins of Longport. “As I speak, I can look around my house and find four or five Irish flags and different motifs and symbols,” Billy McMenamin said over the phone. He and cousin Michael McMenamin have the opportunity to put their pride on display in a way few can. They are American but also members of Ireland’s national men’s lacrosse team program. “Honestly, this is one of the most incredible experiences I’ve had,” Billy said. Billy, 20, and Michael, 25, both live in Longport. Billy is on the Atlantic City Beach Patrol, and Michael is on Ventnor’s. Both graduated from St. Augustine Prep and have experience at the NCAA Division I level. Billy wrapped up his sophomore year as a faceoff specialist at Fairfield University this year. Michael finished his NCAA career at Wagner in 2016. He played midfield with his younger brothers, twins William and Patrick.

Canadian man gets peace bond reduced after fighting at youth lacrosse game.

A wrong look led to a heated argument and fight at a kids lacrosse game in the Lower Mainland, and one of the men involved has won an appeal in court, reducing his peace bond. Christopher Maurice Whitfield was at his child’s lacrosse game on May 29, 2016, when the assistant coach, only identified as Mr. Wiseman, of the team looked at him at some point during the game, according to a written decision in the B.C. Supreme Court. That resulted in Whitfield making “profane and provocative” statements. The two men approached each other and a fight broke out, although it’s not clear who threw the first punch.

In August of last year, Provincial Court judge T.S. Woods tossed out a joint submission by Crown counsel and Whitfield’s defence lawyer, suggesting a peace bond of six months, instead imposing the bond for 12 months. “Mr. Whitfield and Mr. Wiseman took their private disagreement and chose to put it on display in a very physical way at a children’s sporting event,” Woods said in his decision.

But in reviewing the decision, the B.C. Supreme Court decided Woods had attributed blame for the incident almost entirely to Whitfield. Woods said in his decision that the joint submission was unfit as it had no rehabilitative element in it.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Here are the hottest neighborhoods in Philly.

Ebony Small was walking toward her home in North Philadelphia on Wednesday and said she knew change was in the air. “Oh yeah, I know it’s coming,” Small said just as the city’s first major heat wave of the summer was about to get underway. “I watch the news every night. I just want to sit back and try and beat the heat. My plan is to just keep cool and check on my elderly neighbors.”

Welcome to Swelterdelphia: Heat-trapping pockets of the city made extra steamy by block after block of black-roofed rowhouses, strip shopping centers, busy roads — but few trees or other sources of shade in between. These areas even stay warmer at night because heat is released more slowly from all those structures.

In some neighborhoods, temperatures can get much higher than the city average on a hot day, according to data supplied to the city by David Hondula of Arizona State University, who analyzed satellite and temperature data from 2013 to 2015. In fact, there can be as much as a 20-degree difference. His data reflect surface temperatures which are associated with air temperatures, although it’s not always a one-to-one match.

Oh my: Angry patron bites off restaurant owner’s ear.

A woman was arrested for allegedly biting off part of a man’s ear during a fight with the man at a Macomb County Chinese restaurant on Thursday night. According to deputies, they were called to China 1 Restaurant in Mt. Clemens around 9:40 p.m. When they arrived, they found a man with his ear partially bitten off and a woman with a large bump on her forehead. Deputies say 24-year-old Jade Anderson walked ito the restaurant complaining about her order. She was complaining to the owners, who are also the victims in the assault.

Due to a language barrier, the victim’s son translated what Anderson was saying to his parents. That’s when Anderson allegedly pushed the son and threw her food onto the floor. She then started assaulting the female victim, and the male victim stepped in to protect his wife. That’s when Anderson started assaulting the man. As she was pushed out of the store, she bit the man on the ear, partially detaching it. A sign on the restaurant Friday afternoon said it was closed “for some reasons.”
