GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! The College Crosse Preseason All-Americans list will be released later this morning. Until then, here’s everything you need to know for December 9, 2019.

College Crosse News

Check out Chris’ preview of Stony Brook.

The Stony Brook Seawolves are the 50th team in our 2020 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the fifth team from the America East. Stony Brook finished 9-6 overall in 2019 and 5-1 in America East play. The Seawolves were the America East regular season champions, but fell to UMBC in the America East semifinals. They also hired former Towson assistant Anthony Gilardi as their new head coach in the summer.

Lafayette’s 2020 schedule is now up.

Head coach Patrick Myers announced the 2020 Lafayette men’s lacrosse schedule on Wednesday afternoon, featuring six tilts at Fisher Stadium.

The 2020 slate features four NCAA Tournament participants from a season ago, with three of those coming to College Hill in Georgetown, Loyola and Army. Rutgers, Lehigh and Navy round out the home slate, while featured road trips include a clash with 2019 final-four contender Penn State and a Valentine’s Day weekend contest at North Carolina.

Make sure you also read Chris’ take on Lafayette’s 2020 calendar.

The Lafayette Leopards are the 49th team in our 2020 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the sixth team from the Patriot League. Lafayette finished 4-11 overall in 2019 and 0-8 in Patriot League play. The Leopards failed to qualify for the Patriot League Tournament.

Could Robert Morris three-peat? Chris reviews their schedule for next year here.

The Robert Morris Colonials are the 48th team in our 2020 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the seventh team from the NEC. Robert Morris finished 9-8 overall in 2019 and 4-2 in NEC play. The Colonials defeated Hobart for their second straight NEC Championship but lost to Virginia in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Here’s another great video from the Wolverines.

Since the days of the Roman Coliseum, a city’s stadium is often the focal point for a community. It is where we gather, all of us, as a community, regardless of race, gender, age, religion or political beliefs, for a common purpose.

From The Daily Targum: Rutgers lacrosse captains bring wealth of experience.

With fall ball now behind them, the Rutgers men’s lacrosse team is now less than three months away from the start of its 2020 season. Despite losing several key starters (most notably goalkeeper Max Edelmann and defender Kyle Pless), the Scarlet Knights still look to ride a high-powered offense and contend in a loaded Big Ten.

Ballers on the field and in the community.

Here’s a nice piece on Bronx Lacrosse.

Dan Leventhal, founder and president, of Bronx Lacrosse attended Community Board 4 meeting on Tuesday, November 26 and shared with board members what a success his program has been on the two middle schools he’s worked with for the past two years. Players in his program have 96 percent attendance rating and a hundred percent graduation rating among his eighth grade players, he shared.
