College Crosse News

Here come the Raiders: Colgate names Matt Karweck next men’s lacrosse head coach.

The Colgate Raiders introduced former Notre Dame Fighting Irish offensive coordinator Matt Karweck as their next head coach. This comes a little over a month after former head coach Mike Murphy resigned his post. The news was first reported by Inside Lacrosse. You can watch the introductory press conference here, courtesy of Stadium. A Penn Yan Academy grad, Karweck had a great run while at Notre Dame, capturing two ACC championships in 2014 and 2018, as well as five straight NCAA quarterfinal appearances, including two times at Championship Weekend with a national championship appearance for an overall record of 64-30. Notre Dame has had 27 All-Americans, including Matt Kavanagh, Sergio Perkovic, and Ryder Garnsey of offense, and 10 players have been drafted into Major League Lacrosse.

Speaking of Colgate, it’s their turn in the Year in Review hotseat.

Season Summary Colgate followed a consistent pattern for much of 2018, win three games, lose three games. That happened except for their final three games, which was a win followed by two losses. The Raiders showed early on they had a talented offense thanks to Sam Cleveland and Griffin Brown being joined by freshman Mike Hawkins. After a win over Cornell, who later showed they were a very talented team, Colgate was being discussed as a possible dark horse to win the Patriot League. But things calmed down after losses to Bucknell, Lehigh, and a surprising one-goal loss to Hobart. Yet the Raiders bounced back with three more wins to keep themselves alive in the possible Patriot League hunt. But tough losses against Loyola, Navy, and a shocker to Holy Cross put those possibilities away. They got into the Patriot League Tournament thanks to a win over Lafayette, but were eliminated in the quarterfinals to Lehigh. The season ended with a big loss to Syracuse.

Harvard’s the next school in our series.

Season Summary The 2017 Crimson started their season 4-0 before losing seven of their final nine games to finish below .500. 2018 was a similar story. Harvard began the year with a one-goal win over UMass Lowell before losing a surprising game to Holy Cross in overtime three days later. But the Crimson rebounded very well, winning their next six games to go to 7-1 overall with notable wins over UMass and a 19-18 come-from-behind overtime victory over Boston University, where Harvard trailed 18-12 with 7:06 left in the game. But the Crimson faltered at the end of the season, losing their final five games, four against Ivy League opponents, and missed out on the Ivy League Tournament for the second straight season. Morgan Cheek and Joe Lang have been the face of the Crimson offense for the past few years, while Robert Shaw has done a tremendous job as the top netminder in Cambridge. That continued in their final seasons of collegiate lacrosse. Sophomore Kyle Anderson was the team’s top finisher with 34 goals. The team’s seven double-digit scorers were either seniors or sophomores. Freshman Kyle Salvatore was Harvard’s top rookie scorer with eight points in 11 games, while no juniors recorded a point in 2018.


Here’s a great story out of Georgia from US Lacrosse.

Teamwork makes the dream work. It’s a phrase that many have heard, and it quite effectively describes the success of a recent youth clinic in Atlanta. The dream started with Brandon Perkins, a local lacrosse dad who wanted to expose the game that his family loves to more kids who have never played. Shortly after moving to Kennesaw, Ga., in 2014, his son Bryce, now 10, was introduced to the game by a neighbor and began playing. Quickly, the lacrosse passion consumed the entire Perkins family. “I wish I had known about lacrosse as a kid. It’s amazing,” Perkins said. He quickly built a team to support his dream.

#FreeWomensLacrosse: Substitution rule modified in women’s lacrosse.

The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved a women’s lacrosse proposal that allows substitutions when the game clock is stopped. While this was not a rules change year for women’s lacrosse, this change is an alteration to a rule that was implemented during the 2018 season that caused unintended consequences to the substitution procedure. This rules change allows for the continuation of the free movement rules the NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Rules Committee recommended last year.

I really love this pic.

Youth camps are intense.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Group of girls help save woman who fell into Cobbs creek.

A group of quick-thinking girls helped save a woman who fell into a Philadelphia creek. It happened near Cobbs Creek Parkway and Cedar Street in the city’s Cobbs Creek section around 4 p.m. Wednesday. Investigators said a woman dropped her cell phone and was attempting to retrieve it when she fell in the water. A group of young girls were playing nearby when they heard the commotion. “I was freaking out. We were all freaking out. I’m about to go in there and get her and they are like ‘let the police do it,’” 11-year-old Destiny Marok said.

Hard pass: Mayonnaise ice cream now exists — and it’s tearing the internet apart.

In this day and age, nothing is off the table for ice cream flavors. Gone are simpler days of chocolate and vanilla, because it’s 2018 and innovators are experimenting with flavors based on pizza and New Jersey ‘s beloved Taylor Ham pork roll — both of which are apparently pretty good. Alas, one creamery in the U.K. may have taken things too far with its latest frankenfection: mayonnaise ice cream. Mayonnaise already has some unexpected uses. It can be the secret for perfectly-grilled food , tastes delicious on fries , and can be used to moisten up cakes . But mayonnaise ice cream? That sounds like something crawling out from a grim castle on a stormy night. But, indeed, ICE Artisan Ice Cream in Falkirk, Scotland, is selling the bizarre ice cream.
