Former Penn State Women’s Lacrosse All-American Steph Lazo has rejoined the program as a Volunteer Coach on Missy Doherty’s staff. Lazo, a 2017 Penn State graduate, spent last season as an assistant coach at Mount St. Mary’s. Lazo helped the Nittany Lions to four NCAA Tournament appearances, including two National Semifinals during her career. In 2017, she was named the Penn State Female Athlete of the Year after being Penn State’s first IWLCA First Team All-American. She ranks seventh all-time at PSU in points (211) and assists (89). The Stevensville, Md. native was a three-time All-Region selection, two-time All-American, two-time All-Big Ten selection, two-time Academic All-Big Ten selection and the 2017 Big Ten Attack Player of the Year. As a senior, Lazo was a unanimous All-Big Ten pick, leading the conference in points, with 89, and assists, with 43, the second-most assists in a season in program history.
Great article in US Lacrosse on Ryan Powell.
The Powell family has produced some of the greatest lacrosse players in the sport’s history.
There’s Casey, the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame member and four-time All-American at Syracuse, and Mikey, also a star at Syracuse and two-time Team USA member.
Often overlooked in a family is the middle sibling. In the Powells’ case, Ryan, separated by two years from Casey, made sure no one forgot his name — or nickname.
Labeled “Rhino” from an early age, Ryan Powell lived up to his nickname, developing a reputation as one of the toughest lacrosse players to ever step on the field. He didn’t possess the skillset his brothers did, but his work ethic evened the playing field.
Sometimes you gotta work with whatever you have on hand.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
New Jersey probes FanDuel refusal to pay $82K on wrong football odds.
New Jersey gambling regulators are investigating whether FanDuel’s sports book should pay out more than $82,000 to a man who was given exorbitant odds for the Denver Broncos to win Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. Anthony Prince of Newark made his bet and was handed a ticket at incredible 750-1 odds with about a minute left in the game, as the Broncos trailed by 2 points on their final drive. Denver kicked a field goal with 6 seconds left to win 20-19, capping a second half comeback that started with the Broncos down 12-0. FanDuel says its system should have calculated his odds at 1-6, meaning a bettor would have to wager $600 in order to win $100.
This beef ain’t over!!: Great-grandmother and Livingston, Texas mayor, Judy B. Cochran, hunts nearly 600-pound ‘gator who ate her several years ago.
The mayor of Livingston is taking community protection into her own hands. Literally. Livingston, Texas mayor Judy B. Cochran managed to kill a 12-foot, 580-pound alligator with just one shot Sunday night at her ranch in Goodrich, Texas. It must run in the family: The hunt took place in the same pond where her 5-year-old grandson, Simon Hughes, took down a gator in 2009.
This particular reptile is a familiar one to the family, she explained. “We think this is the gator that ate one of our miniature horses several years ago, as big as this gator was, he could’ve easily eaten it,”she said. “Typically the gators don’t bother us, but we’ve been looking for (this one).” As an elected official, Cochran wants to make sure the public knows this was a safe, ethical hunt.
