Notre Dame Fighting Irish senior attackman Ryder Garnsey will miss the entire 2019 season due to being academically ineligible, multiple sources tell College Crosse. A team spokesperson would not comment on the situation. Garnsey has been Notre Dame’s top offensive players since arrive in South Bend in 2016. He led the team in points the past two seasons with 43 and was third on the team in the same category as a freshman with 39. As a freshman, he was alongside Matt Kavanagh and Mikey Wynne and was second on the team with 27 goals. He took command of the offense the following year and was only one of two players with double digit assists, leading the Irish in that category with 23 (Brendan Collins had 10).

The Marquette men’s lacrosse head coach’s office may look like he’s ready to leave for a quick weekend getaway, but he’s hoping that a simple piece of luggage has a different effect on his players. Joe Amplo, who is in his seventh year as the Golden Eagles’ head coach, has kept a bag packed up in his office since the team returned to campus in late August, according to U.S. Lacrosse Magazine.
Amplo took the bag to Israel when he worked as an assistant coach for the U.S. men’s national team and won a gold medal. Amplo intends for the bag to motivates his players because it is packed with everything Amplo needs for a six-day visit to Philadelphia for the Final Four. Marquette has never made the Final Four but has two NCAA appearances since the program started in 2013.
I missed this from a week ago, but here’s a cool STX all-access video of Vermont’s lacrosse facilities.
Syracuse women’s lacrosse associate head coach Regy Thorpe will leave that job at the end of this season for the challenge of revving up the National Lacrosse League’s new New York franchise.
Thorpe, a native of Elbridge and a former SU great, has worked on the staff of Orange head coach Gary Gait since 2010 and was promoted to associate head coach in 2015. He has helped guide the Orange to an overall record of 142-56 and eight NCAA Tournament appearances. The Orange have advanced to the national semifinals in six of those years and the national championship game twice.
“I would like to thank Gary and all of the assistant coaches and staff members who I have had the privilege of learning from over the years,” Thorpe said in a statement. “An opportunity to coach at your alma mater is a dream come true and I have lived that dream for the last nine seasons. To all of the players over the years – thank you for paddling and battling with me. I hope that my wife, Amy, and I have left a lasting imprint on our lives like you have on ours. But with all this said, my only focus right now is on Syracuse players and the 2019 season and our game versus Connecticut.”

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Actor Michael B. Jordan, whose recent screen credits include “Black Panther” and “Creed II,” was back in his hometown of Newark last Friday, to help inspire students at Barringer High School dreaming of careers in the arts. Jordan was at Barringer as part of the Coach Foundation’s participation in “The Future Project,” which places celebrity and other professional “dream directors” into high schools around the country to provide guidance and inspiration to students.
Travel these days involves exploring new destinations, eating new foods, making memories, and dodging tourists as they try to snap that perfect Instagram photo. Instagram is great, but when Instagrammability becomes the No. 1 motivation for booking a holiday, and hotels start offering Instagram butlers, it can lead to over-tourism (a runner-up for word of the year!), dangerously crowded conditions, people making terrible choices to get a good shot, and a glut of articles about how Instagram is ruining travel.
As the Instagram Effect continues into 2019, destinations are coming up with ways to fight back–and fight off the teeming hoards of selfie-stick-wielding visitors. Photogenic destinations like Barcelona, Amsterdam, Cinque Terre, and Santorini are starting to limit how and when tourists visit in hopes of preserving the landmarks for the future.
