Once ground was broken in June 2019, construction progress on Brown University’s Center for Lacrosse and Soccer has outpaced every prediction. Leaders from Facilities and Athletics now expect the center to be fully functioning by the start of the Spring 2020 lacrosse season. On Thursday, Oct. 3, a crane lifted the structure’s final steel beam — decorated with the signatures and well wishes of student athletes, University leaders, construction workers and community members involved in the project’s planning and development — into place. In the spirit of topping-off tradition, an American flag and small pine tree sat atop the beam as it moved into position.

There were few surprises woven into Loyola’s offense the last four seasons, and for good reason. The Greyhounds could place the ball in attackman Pat Spencer’s stick, and good things would usually happen. Many times, really good things would happen. Spencer capped his time in college lacrosse with a Tewaaraton Award last spring, a capstone to one of the greatest careers of his generation. He’s off playing basketball at Northwestern this fall. For its part, Loyola is doggedly moving on.
