2/15 at Merrimack: A potential annual non-conference series in the making? The two schools are a little less than two hours apart from each other and with the Warriors beginning their move up to the Division I ranks, it’ll be a new opponent for Dartmouth to get to know.
2/22 vs. Bryant: The Bulldogs had a down year in 2019 despite winning two of their first three games. Their meeting with the Big Green was one of their three wins all season, and it wasn’t pretty. Dartmouth’s Jack Richardson cut the Bulldog lead to one goal with 11:23 left in regulation, and that was it for the scoring. All eight total shots on goal were saved, including five by Daniel Hincks. Dartmouth had seven total shots, with three of them saved.
So Jake and I have been pretty busy lately and we understand we haven’t been recording as many podcasts for you lately. Luckily we have the pulse of the people and we’re giving you what you’ve come to expect from us this time of year out of College Crossecast. The NHL season preview podcast. We’ll have a fresh lacrosse Decade in Review episode dropping later this week, but given the NHL season starts Wednesday and we know there’s a high amount of crossover between lacrosse fans and hockey fans, we’d figure this will whet your content appetite.
Back to normal. Months out from his team’s first game of the 2020 season, that’s how University at Albany men’s lacrosse head coach Scott Marr views the status of his program after a couple weeks of fall practices. “Our energy is great. Our positivity is awesome,” Marr said after Monday’s workout. “It’s been a really fun fall so far because our vibe and our energy is so good.”
Laura Hebert was named the national coordinator of officials for women’s lacrosse, bringing three decades of experience as both an on-field official and a playing rules administrator in the sport at the national and local levels. Hebert will direct the national women’s lacrosse officiating program across all three divisions.
Kids’ play is killing their parents financially. And parents know it. Two-thirds of parents with at least one child in a youth sports program report that the cost of coaching, equipment and travel is eating into what they should be saving for retirement. According to a survey conducted for TD Ameritrade, more than one in four households spend more than $500 a month on extracurricular sports. Another 53% spend between $100 to $500 a month. Per kid.
Back to work!!
Marquette men’s lacrosse kicked off its year by giving back to the community with its first fundraiser of 2019-’20. At this year’s welcome-back barbecue over Family Weekend, they chose to do more than just come together and eat. “Because there were so many individuals coming — over 140 of us here — we decided to reach out to a local community homeless shelter, the Milwaukee (Rescue) Mission,” men’s lacrosse booster club co-chair Amanda Thomson said. “We asked them if they needed anything.”
More than 1,000 lacrosse balls will negotiate the nearly one-mile course down Mount Van Hoevenberg. The balls will be donated by Summit Lacrosse Ventures.
“This has become a really great fun event for the fans and for us at USA Luge,” said Gordy Sheer, USA Luge Director of Marketing and Sponsorships. “Now we’ll do it again for the fifth time in front of the World Cup audience at the track. All money raised will help defray the costs for our athletes at all levels of competition, from the national team down to the development teams.”
An East Texas university has added another sport it its athletic department: lacrosse. Men’s lacrosse will be played at the school in the 2020-21 season at East Texas Baptist University in Marshall. Athletic Director Ryan Erwin says it’s a sport that is growing across the nation. “We’re working hard now to recruit 20- 25 young men to come be a part of a Christ-centered program and be able to play lacrosse while they get a college education,” Erwin says.

The best time of the year — leaf-peeping season — is almost upon us. Pennsylvania’s Bureau of Forestry (yes, such an entity exists, and it’s a very, very important one) has released its first fall foliage report of 2019, giving us eager folks a look at when leaves are expected to be their most colorful this year.
Brits are deliberately “sabotaging” workplace robots so they can’t be replaced, according to recent reports. A new study has found that the UK is less accepting of workplace tech when compared to other countries. According to the Telegraph, research by De Montfort University in Leicester found that tensions between humans and workplace robots are created because British employers don’t explain why they’re using them.
