GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for October 24, 2019.

College Crosse News

Make sure to check out Chris’ breakdown of Princeton’s 2020 schedule.

The Princeton Tigers are the 15th team in our 2020 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the second team from the Ivy League. Princeton finished 7-7 overall in 2019 and 2-4 in Ivy League play. The Tigers failed to qualify for the Ivy League Tournament for the second consecutive season.

Circle These Dates

2/22 at Virginia: Princeton’s last two meetings with the Cavaliers have been thrilling matchups, with the Tigers losing both but only by a combined four goals. The Tigers led for the majority of last year’s game before the Cavaliers were able to come from behind and win in overtime, with Virginia goaltender Patrick Burkinshaw stopping an insane 24 shots in his first career start. He’s now at Penn.

Oh my: St. John’s lacrosse captain Matthew Stockfeder was arrested for nearly disemboweling his roommate.

A lacrosse team captain at St John’s University in New York has been arrested for allegedly stabbing his roommate after an argument at an unsanctioned off-campus fraternity house. The victim, who survived the attack, later told police he did not realize what had happened until he saw his own intestines sliding out of the wound in his stomach.

The PLL is adding a 7th team for 2020.

The Premier Lacrosse League, whose backers include Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. billionaire Joe Tsai, Raine Group and Creative Artists Agency, is adding another team for its second season. The league -- co-founded by brothers Michael and Paul Rabil, the latter the sport’s highest-profile player -- had six franchises for its inaugural campaign.

Orange fans should schedule accordingly.

Speaking of ‘Cuse, check out this highlight video from alumni weekend.

Congrats to Wesleyan head coach John Raba.

John Raba, head coach of the Wesleyan men’s lacrosse team, has been inducted into the Connecticut Lacrosse Hall of Fame for the Class of 2019. The induction ceremony will take place on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at Vazzano’s Four Seasons in Stratford. Tickets for the event can be purchased through the Connecticut Lacrosse Foundation website at www.ctlacrosse.org. The cost of each ticket is $60 per person ($20 for children and a table of 10 for $500).

The wild ones: Why be a lacrosse goalie?

A defender screaming “cutter!” whizzes past. A frantic instant later, an opponent follows, her colors speeding by an almost unrecognizable blur. Suddenly, the fray is marked by the sound of a clasped catch and release. Three feet in front of you, the ball is coming your way. It’s going here. You step there. Save!

#GrowTheGame

Run it back: US Lacrosse Magazine with a nice article about UVA.

With a roster featuring four returning All-Americans, the MVP goalie of championship weekend and the faceoff man that triggered a late game national championship rally, it’s going to be really hard for Virginia to play the underdog card in 2020. But fourth-year head coach Lars Tiffany might have pulled off the impossible in putting together a fall schedule in which his Cavaliers could have been perceived as the underdog three times.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

I might need to visit one of these if Hopkins has a slow start to the season.

Need to let out some steam? A rage room venue called Break Stuff NJ recently opened in North Brunswick. It is located at 1150 Newton St., Suite C. What exactly is a rage room, you ask? It’s a place with enclosed areas dedicated solely for destroying items and relieving stress.

This doesn’t sound like fun at all: Haunted house requires 40-page waiver, doctor’s note, & safe word.

You really don’t want to do this. This is what every person must utter after failing to complete a tour of McKamey Manor. Russ McKamey owns and operates the most terrifying haunted house experience in America — one you’re not allowed to attend until you watch a two-hour-long video, sign a 40-page waiver, create a safe word, pass a physical, and more.
