As a freshman, Brian Tevlin won a national championship with the Yale men’s lacrosse team. This year he missed time with his teammates in order to donate bone marrow to a man in need. “It’s definitely something that surpasses one or two lacrosse games when you start talking about saving a life,” Tevlin told NBC Connecticut before practice Thursday afternoon. During high school, Tevlin signed up for the Be The Match national donor registry in honor of his best friend’s mom.
Much was at stake when DeMaurice Smith, the executive director of the NFL Players Association, and his 17-year-old son Alex hit the golf course for a nine-hole round in the summer of 2016. If the younger Smith won, he could skip playing soccer in his senior year at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac. But if the elder Smith could pull off the upset, he would be able to watch his son play his fourth and final season of soccer for the Lions.
“I played the best seven holes of golf on the planet,” DeMaurice Smith, 55, recalled Wednesday. “I shot the lights out and then completely fell into the abyss on [Nos.] eight and nine. I think he won by three strokes, and that was it.”
After dropping three of its first four games, the Lehigh men’s lacrosse team appeared in jeopardy. Since then, the team has won six games in a row and will have its biggest test Saturday against No. 2 Loyola. After losing players to injury, such as seniors Andrew Pettit for the season and Lucas Spence for a few games due to injury, it was critical for younger members to step up, even if it meant having to develop at an accelerated rate. A “next man up” attitude was adopted throughout the team. Lehigh excelled and is now ranked as a top 15 team nationally.
Practice makes perfect.
Penn State’s win over Maryland men’s lacrosse last weekend wasn’t just the Nittany Lions’ first victory over the Terps in their last 36 tries, but was also an assertion that they’re the top dog in the Big Ten this season. For Maryland, it was a revelation of some of the team’s shortcomings that haven’t been on display since the loss to Notre Dame. Although it’s a letdown for a team looking to take the next step, there’s still plenty of lacrosse to be played and adjustments to be made this season before tournament play begins. The Terps were in a similar position last season when they lost to then-No. 1 Albany at home, but stayed the course and managed to finish as the top seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Delaware goes back to work.
After Maryland men’s lacrosse allowed Penn State to score eight first-quarter goals Sunday, creating a deficit even a late rally couldn’t overcome, midfielder Roman Puglise was anxious to correct the mistakes his team committed. Following the defeat, Puglise said the Terps didn’t live up to the standards their program expects, and twice he guaranteed a better performance in their next outing.
But the sophomore and his teammates would have to wait to get back on the field. The coaches gave Maryland a day off Monday, opting to manage the health of their players rather than immediately assess what went wrong against the Nittany Lions.

The No. 7 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team heads to Pennsylvania in a huge Big Ten matchup against No. 1 Penn State at noon Sunday. The Buckeyes are looking to bounce back from their first loss of the season. Ohio State (7-1, 0-1 Big Ten) played its first Big Ten matchup of the season at home, but were upset by Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights dominated the first half while the Buckeyes made uncommon mistakes, scoring just 6-of-45 shots and turning the ball more than 17 times. The team mentality has been to put that loss — a 14-6 drubbing against the Scarlet Knights this past Sunday — in its collective “back pocket” and “remember what this feels like,” Ohio State senior midfielder and captain Logan Maccani said. “We are not going to let that loss that week dictate how we are going to play moving forward,” Maccani said.
Last week, Penn State won its first Big Ten Matchup against Maryland. Now the Nittany Lions look to continue their streak against Ohio State in Panzer Stadium at 7 p.m. Sunday. Penn State is currently ranked No. 1 in the country, and is on a five-game win streak.
The Ohio State Buckeyes are currently ranked No. 9, with a 7-1 overall record. Last week, the Buckeyes lost at home for the first time this season to Rutgers in the Big Ten opener. “If I were to predict, [Ohio State is] going to come in here with a pretty hefty chip on their shoulder [after their loss to Rutgers],” coach Jeff Tambroni said. “They’re going to compete and play their very best lacrosse game.”
Big game this weekend in Denver.
The Penn women’s lacrosse team celebrated recently when it spent two weeks at its highest national rank in program history, No. 5 in the Inside Lacrosse top 20. Penn (8-2 overall, 2-0 in the Ivy League) went into this season with extra motivation after a heartbreaking second-round exit to Stony Brook in last year’s NCAA Tournament. The Quakers won their first six games, similar to last season’s fast start, but they hope this season ends differently. “The biggest thing with this year, since we are so young, is a lot of exciting energy,” said junior attacker Gabby Rosenzweig, the team’s points leader with 21 goals and 33 assists.
What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Valerie Camillo moved to Philadelphia just three months ago, and she settled right into the core of the city—its booming sports scene. Camillo is now the president of business operations for both the Philadelphia Flyers and Wells Fargo Center, after serving as chief revenue and marketing officer for the Washington Nationals. Before that, Camillo served as a senior vice president in the NBA’s Team Marketing and Business Operations group. But the sports industry isn’t where Camillo started out. The executive gives us the lowdown on her winding journey and why working in the sports industry is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. Plus, the leader explains why her relationship with that famous giant orange coworker is complicated.
Millions of people are dying around the world from poor diets, often packed with sodium and lacking in whole grains and fruits, according to a study published Wednesday. The peer-reviewed Global Burden of Disease analysis published in The Lancet suggests one in five deaths (about 11 million) are linked to unhealthy eating habits. People didn’t consume enough nuts, seeds, milk and whole grains, according to data from 2017. Instead, they consumed too much processed meat, sodium and sugary drinks.
