College Crosse News

Drexel’s 2020 schedule is now up.

Make sure to check out Chris’ breakdown of Drexel’s 2020 calendar.

The Drexel Dragons are the 21st team in our 2020 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the third team from the CAA. Drexel finished 7-8 overall in 2019 and 2-3 in CAA play. The Dragons reached the CAA Championship game for the first time since they won it all in 2014, but fell short of winning the conference against Towson.

Hofstra received a major gift for the renovation of the men’s lacrosse locker room.

Former Hofstra men’s lacrosse student-athlete James C. Metzger ‘83, whose generous support of Hofstra Athletics stretches back more than a decade, announced a substantial leadership gift for the renovation of the Harry Royle-Vincent Sombrotto men’s lacrosse locker room.

”To honor my former coach and teammate while I enhance the athletics facilities is truly gratifying for me,” stated Metzger. “Harry Royle gave me the opportunity to start as a freshman, and Vinnie Sombrotto was an inspirational superstar player, both of whom I admire and respect. I left the program after my sophomore year, but benefitted greatly from my experience while I played, which gave me a lifetime of memories and formed an important part of the foundation upon which I build both my personal and professional life.”
