Lehigh wins a tough road game at Rutgers.
The Rutgers men’s lacrosse team fell to No. 16 Lehigh at HighPoint.com Stadium 13-10 last night. This defeat puts the No. 15 Scarlet Knights (4-3) in a difficult position, as they have yet to defeat a ranked team halfway through the season. The first half was the sophomore midfielder Ryan Gallagher show, as he got 3 goals and an assist in the first half. Rutgers and the Mountain Hawks (4-3) went back and forth early, trading a pair of goals in the first 10 minutes. Sophomore attacker Adam Charalambides got the other goal for the Knights in the first, and Ryan Klose and Mickey Fitzpatrick scored for Lehigh. Alex Tuminello got the third of the game to end the quarter up 3-2.

The Boston Cannons are investing $1.5M to renovate Veterans Memorial Stadium.
With Major League Lacrosse making headlines all over the country this past week it was time for a local team to take its turn in the spotlight and the Boston Cannons did not fail to deliver. On Tuesday the local MLL franchise announced a major investment into their new home located in Quincy, Massachusetts. Veterans Memorial Stadium, located at 850 Hancock St in Quincy, is getting over $1.5 million from the Cannons with the goal being to provide the 81 year old venue a major facelift with its last renovation project being completed in 2006 at a cost of $1.2M.
One of the people charged in the massive academic scandal that has rocked the country tried to get his kid into USC as a lacrosse recruit, despite USC not having a Division I lacrosse program.
Bill McGlashan, who built his career as a top investor at the private equity firm TPG, has been put on “indefinite administrative leave, effective immediately,” says the firm after McGlashan was caught up in what the Justice Department said today is the largest college admissions scandal it has ever prosecuted ... Somewhat unbelievably, the cooperating witness goes on to explain that to take advantage of a “side door” that could further strengthen the odds that McGlashan’s son will be accepted at USC, he will need to create a fake athletic profile for McGlashan’s son, which he says he has done “a million times” for other families. As remarkably, after McGlashan tells him that his family has images of the teenager playing lacrosse and is told by the cooperating witness that USC doesn’t have a lacrosse team, McGlashan is then told that a picture of his son “doing something” – – anything vaguely sporty, in other words – – will “be fine.”
Another person charged in the scheme refinanced his house to help get his daughter into USC for women’s lacrosse.
Most of the parents charged in the college bribery scandal are extraordinarily wealthy. The odd man out: the associate professor of dentistry who allegedly refinanced his house and made installment payments to scam his daughter into USC as a lacrosse star. https://t.co/xSVQbzIwDk pic.twitter.com/ePCVvvmDl2— Ryan J.

TV stars, Division I coaches, and more caught up in massive college bribery scandal.
Fifty people, including Hollywood stars Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, were charged Tuesday in a scheme in which wealthy parents allegedly bribed college coaches and other insiders to get their children into some of the nation’s most elite schools. Federal authorities called it the biggest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the U.S. Justice Department, with the parents accused of paying an estimated $25 million in bribes. “These parents are a catalog of wealth and privilege,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said in announcing the results of an investigation code-named Operation Varsity Blues.
If only there was a succinct turn of phrase these kids could have used to inform their parents they were not desirous of their life path... https://t.co/cxOTDI5J1B— James Van Der Beek (@vanderjames) March 12, 2019
