Here are some highlights from Loyola vs. Lehigh.

Duke’s win over Notre Dame gave the Blue Devils their first ACC win of 2019.

Duke entered the weekend undefeated against three top-10 opponents this year. And in front of a packed crowd on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, the No. 8 Blue Devils kept that perfect record in big games intact, defeating seventh-ranked Notre Dame 14-8 at Koskinen Stadium. Coming off two consecutive losses to begin ACC play, Duke seemed like it was playing angry all game. Despite some flaws exposed over the last couple weeks, the Blue Devils’ continued track record against top competition proves they are one of the most talented teams in the country—a unit nobody wants to see flooded with confidence.

WTNH did a segment on Yale’s win over Dartmouth.

Last Saturday, the now fifth ranked Yale Lacrosse Team lost a heartbreaker in a triple overtime game at Penn. The Bulldogs were looking to bounce back at Reese Stadium. On Alumni weekend, Yale hosting the Big Green of Dartmouth.

Here’s a nice article on the Alabama men’s lacrosse club team.

The famous quote “you get out what you put in” does not always ring true to life’s harsh realities, and the Alabama men’s lacrosse team knows that all too well. A club team in a sport known for its competition, Alabama is looking to expand upon last season’s success to the highest goal possible: to become Division I.

“The talent is there, and we have that already, but it’s an organizational issue at this point,” said Justin Alexandre, a junior majoring in construction engineering.

While Division I may seem like a far-fetched idea for a team that doesn’t have its own stadium, or even its own practice field, but transfer teams like Michigan prove that club lacrosse can find a home in the big leagues if the whole team buys in. In this case, the team embodies everyone from players, coaches, to most importantly, the university’s athletic department.

Michigan’s 10-man ride gave Maryland some trouble on Saturday, but the Terps were able to figure it out for the 16-12 victory.

Against a Michigan team notorious for its hounding defense, Maryland men’s lacrosse knew where to strike. After faceoff specialist Austin Henningsen won the first draw of the day, he quickly retreated to the Terps’ defensive end and passed the ball off to goalkeeper Danny Dolan. Defender Curtis Corley received the next pass, and instead of initiating a conventional clear attempt, he fired a shot from almost 70 yards away from the Wolverines’ net, missing wide left.

Nick Mellen versus Jeff Teat is going to be a great individual match-up to watch during the Syracuse vs. Cornell game on Tuesday.

Syracuse defender Nick Mellen didn’t want to admit that his four-year teammate, Andrew Helmer, was right: That Mellen takes getting beat one-on-one personally.

“Andrew knows me pretty well,” Mellen said. “So, I would never come out and just say that, but yeah, that’s pretty accurate.”

A week prior, Helmer attributed Mellen’s play to his mindset. He gets angry when an attacker gets behind him. So mad that it doesn’t happen often.

“It’s that same ‘kill-or-be-killed’ mindset that I’ve always kind of came up with,” Mellen said. “For me, Helmer hit it right on the head: I do not like getting beat. At anything, for that matter.”

Highlights from Marist vs. Siena from this past weekend.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

FINALLY: A Philly publisher is releasing Mean Girls with a Shakespeare twist.

I’ll tell you one thing, people: It is a good time to be a Mean Girls fan in Philly ... Quirk Books — the Philly publishing house that’s brought us timeless classics like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and these Gritty book covers — is about to release another pop culture mash-up on April 23rd. Titled William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Mean Girls, the book is the tale of Cady Heron and The Plastics, rewritten in the style of William Shakespeare — iambic pentameter and all.

World/National News

Sounds about right: Study says average person only has about 4 and a half hours of free time per week.

How much free time do you get to enjoy each week? If you’re like the most people, it’s hardly enough to even be excited about. A new survey finds that the average American adult logs just four hours and 26 minutes of time to themselves in a given week. And if that amount seems high, you’re also in good company. Four out of 10 people surveyed said they get even less free time than that total, incredibly.
