I see you, Big Green: Dartmouth men’s lacrosse announced that construction of a brand new state of the art indoor practice facility will start on January 14th. Below is a rendering of what the new facility will look like. It is slated to open in 2020.

Binghamton men’s lacrosse head coach Kevin McKeown has officially announced the addition of Tanner Cosens to the coaching staff. Cosens was a volunteer undergraduate assistant last season as well as a three year starter for the Bearcats from 2014-2017. “I am thrilled to welcome back Tanner to our program,” McKeown said. “As a former coach, captain and first team All-America East player, Tanner’s perspective and ability to lead will add enormous value to our program. In addition, he will be able to dedicate himself to the development of our goalies on a daily basis.”
The boys are back in town!
Expectations are quite high for Penn State this year for a few key reasons. Last season ended in disappointment. An 8-6 overall record that featured just two wins in five conference games left the Nittany Lions on their couches for the entirety of the postseason. Yet as preseason polls come out, Penn State continually finds itself in the top 15. The position isn’t justified by last season’s play, but by this season’s potential. The Nittany Lions enter 2019 at full strength and another year wiser. Although a difficult schedule lies ahead, all the pieces are in place for a potentially-deep postseason run.
Here are the top-10 most challenging non-conference schedules. Same methodology as before, just excluded any conference games. If you want to know how much a team has challenged itself, this is probably better than holistic SOS. pic.twitter.com/cPitxEHE3B— Lacrosse Reference (@laxreference) January 9, 2019
The value of experience can be hard to define at times, and it will be put to the test again this season by the Syracuse lacrosse team. The Orange returns eight starters from a squad that won the 2018 ACC regular season title (although midfielder Tucker Dordevic starts spring practice sidelined by an undisclosed injury). In the context of Orange lacrosse, that would normally be a very encouraging place to start. But those veterans produced an uneven 2018 regular season. SU finished 8-7 and lost at home to Cornell in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Orange’s talent may be established but it still has to show the hunger to play a lot better for the team to reach its first NCAA title game since 2013.
It feels like just yesterday we were wrapping up the lacrosse season! The @CuseMLAX team is back and feeling optimistic about 2019. We will have more tonight on @SPECNewsCNY pic.twitter.com/NfxVrvphV4— Kate Callaway (@KateCallawayTV) January 9, 2019
90 Seconds of Depth takes an inside look at VMI Head Lacrosse Coach Jon Birsner.
Wells was treasurer of the Southington Lacrosse Association from 2010 to 2016. In her role, she was the only person who used the association debit card and the only one authorized to access the association’s bank account, according to an arrest warrant. Wells was also employed as a part-time bookkeeper at Jones Engineering.
Police sorted through financial documents and discovered Wells embezzled $98,955 from the lacrosse association and $376,099 from Jones Engineering, the warrant said. Police said funds embezzled from the lacrosse association were used for a concert, hotels and travel expenses, and at restaurants and retail stores.
Great story from St. Bonaventure.

Junior defenseman Curtis Corley contributed to a defensive effort that allowed the No. 2 Maryland men’s lacrosse team to surrender only five goals to then-No. 15 Michigan on Saturday, which was more than six goals below the Wolverines’ average. Corley – who has started all nine games for the reigning NCAA champion Terps (8-1, 1-0 Big Ten) along with sophomore defenseman Jack Welding and senior goalkeeper Dan Morris – has seven ground balls and seven caused turnovers this spring. He shared his perspective on the defense’s play against Michigan and his reputation on Maryland as one of the strongest players on the roster.
Curtis, as a defense, what did you guys do to Michigan to limit them to five goals and particularly to shut them out for the last 25 minutes of the game Saturday?
[Assistant] coach [and defensive coordinator Jesse] Bernhardt, he put together a really good plan. We knew what we had to do out there as a defense. I think we got really good play out of Dan. He had, I think, 10 saves in that game, and he bailed us out when he needed to. And we got really good play out of [senior defenseman] Bryce Young, who limited his matchup to nothing. That was really good. I think we got a good effort out of everybody down there on the defense. It was a good step for us to take in the right direction.
What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Like the tour in Chicago, the Philadelphia excursions will be an all-you-can-eat walking tour through some of Philly’s best loved donut shops, starting at Federal Donuts and ending at Beiler’s Donuts at the Reading Terminal Market. In between will be additional stops at two other donut bakeries the company is keeping secret.
Woelker, who started the Chicago tour four years ago, said he got the inspiration to expand to Philadelphia during one of the Windy City tours: “There was a wonderful gentlemen from Philadelphia who was taking one of our tours and he said the donut scene in Philadelphia is huge and we have to have this in Philadelphia.”
A pilot showed incredible helicopter skills during a rescue mission in the French Alps on January 2. The video on the player above shows the French mountain police helping an injured skier back up before hoisting him into the helicopter. What becomes noticeable is the extraordinary precision with which the pilot was able to get close to the injured skier as the helicopter’s blades spun closely to the ground.
