2019 Men’s College Lacrosse Year In Review: #23 Vermont Catamounts.

Season Summary - 2018 saw Vermont record their best season in program history. But despite that accomplishment, they were unable to top Albany to win the America East. The win-loss record went down in 2019, but the Catamounts returned back to the conference title game.

After a season-opening win out west against Utah, Vermont returned back east and suffered their first loss of the season to Navy. The Catamounts gave up a pair of six-point performances to Greyson Torain and Ryan Wade in the defeat. Vermont split their next four games with wins against Holy Cross in a solid defensive performance and Quinnipiac in a good offensive performance.

2019 Men’s College Lacrosse Year In Review: #22 Lehigh Mountain Hawks.

Season Summary - At the beginning of the season, some saw Lehigh as a dark horse pick to go deep in the NCAA Tournament. They were certainly projected to compete with Loyola for the Patriot League title, but there were also people that expected them to play deeper in May as an at-large selection

Lehigh began the season with a 15-8 win over NJIT, but unexpected turns began the following weekend against Hofstra. Up 3-1 entering the fourth quarter, the Mountain Hawks gave up three goals en route to a shocking and low-scoring 4-3 loss.

USA, USA, USA: World Champions! USA U19 squad downs Canada to win fifth World Championship.

Last August, 36 players were selected from a pool of more than 100 of the nation’s top young women’s lacrosse players to join the 2019 U19 training team. Megan Carney and Izzy Scane were not among them. On Saturday, they both wore big smiles and gold medals around their necks after helping the U.S. reclaim the World Lacrosse Women’s U19 World Championship with a 13-3 victory over defending champion Canada.

HANDS OFF, FOOTBALL: Utah lacrosse commit also eyes Utes’ backfield.

Utah lacrosse’s venture to the east for talent could aid the Utes’ football team as well. White Plains (N.Y.) Archbishop Stepanic’s Kevin McKenna is a midfielder in lacrosse and a running back in football. He is committed to the Utes to play lacrosse, but he will also be on the football roster after performing well at a July camp. “I played really well and the running backs coach (Kiel McDonald) invited me to his office for a conversation,” McKenna said.

Summertime and the living’s easy.

New kids on the block in Jacksonville.

Five newcomers – made up of four transfers and one freshman – plan to join the Jacksonville University men’s lacrosse team this fall, as announced by head coach John Galloway. Defenseman Spencer Stokes (Pfeiffer), goalie Jason Yoquinto (Albany), attackman Reece Wiseman (Harford CC), and defenseman Colin Hinton (Anne Arundel CC) add depth to the roster for the Dolphins heading into the 2020 season, while attackman Ethan LaMond begins his collegiate career.

“I am thrilled to welcome Ethan, Colin, Spencer, Reese, and Jason to our Duval Mission. Over the last three years, we feel we have built a foundation in our roster to compete for championships. This summer, our job was to find the final pieces of the puzzle to get over us over the hump,” commented Galloway.

Say “Cheese!”

Friends & teammates now organizing a fundraising game in honor of lacrosse standout Steel Crawford.

Family and friends of Steel Crawford are mourning the passing of the 17-year-old Freeport High School student. A star lacrosse player, Crawford died after leaping into the Saco River from a rope swing Friday. “He was just a great human being,” said Geoff Arris, head coach of the Freeport High School boy’s lacrosse team of which Crawford was a co-captain. “He would take kids aside, he would speak to the kids that needed some help. Or if they were having a bad day, they would go and talk to him.”

Hard pass: How leeches became the latest health trend.

Blood covered the hotel room where Tsetsi Stoyanova had checked in for the night. It stained the sheets and the towels and trailed over the bed. The mess dribbled out from a wound on Stoyanova’s back. It smelled. Not like sweat or iron but something else — something strong. “The bleeding wouldn’t stop. It just kept on going and going and going,” Stoyanova says. “I made everything red and bloody.”
