2019 Men’s College Lacrosse Year In Review: #33 North Carolina Tar Heels.

Season Summary After finishing right at .500 last season, North Carolina looked to bounce back in the ACC as well as on the national stage. UNC brought in a good amount of young talent to Chapel Hill, and many of them made immediate impacts in 2019.

Unlike 2018, the Tar Heels did not have any bad losses. They defeated all of their unranked opponents and were around the top 20 for most of the season. That began with wins over Mercer, Furman, and Harvard. But North Carolina suffered their first setback with a very muddy loss to Johns Hopkins at Kenan Stadium. The following weekend, the team opened their new lacrosse stadium that was the former home of Fetzer Field against Denver. It was another close game, but Denver scored three goals in the final quarter to spoil the opening of their new digs.

Fairfield’s Jake Tymon helped save a man from a burning car.

Police said officers responded to a motor vehicle accident on West River Street near Wolf Harbor Road around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday after a vehicle went off the roadway, hit a large tree and burst into flames. The driver had managed to crawl out of the vehicle, but wasn’t able to move far from it because of serious leg and hip injuries as well as internal injuries, police said. Police identified the good Samaritans, Jake Tymon, of Fairfield, and Mark Bernier, of Milford.

Shout out to my favorite goalie of all time.

Broadway’s newest star is former Princeton lacrosse player Sam Gravitte.

It’s a little after one on a hot New York City summer Saturday. Sam Gravitte is walking west on 51st Street. In a few minutes he won’t be Sam anymore. Instead he’ll be Fiyero. Not one but two witches will be in love with him. For now, though, he’s Sam, the same Sam Gravitte who a little more than two years ago was finishing his lacrosse career at Princeton, the same Sam Gravitte who smiles easily and laughs softly and without effort draws people to him, the same Sam Gravitte who said this while a Princeton senior: “Since my first musical in fifth grade, there hasn’t been a single fleeting thought about doing anything else.”

Syracuse & North Carolina spruced up their facilities this summer.

Rest in peace to Redmond C.S. Finney, retired Gilman School headmaster and All-America lacrosse player.

Redmond C.S. Finney, a retired Gilman School headmaster who achieved All-America status in two sports, died of heart failure Wednesday at Mount Desert Hospital in Maine. The Upperco resident was 89. Born in Baltimore and known as Reddy, he was the son of Dr. George Finney, a general surgeon, and his wife, Josephine Stewart. He was a 1947 graduate of Gilman, where he was awarded the Fisher Medallion, the highest student honor. He played football and lacrosse and wrestled and was a member of the newspaper and yearbook staffs. He also debated. Mr. Finney earned a bachelor’s degree from Princeton University, and in his senior year he was captain of the wrestling team and was named an All-American in football and lacrosse.

Looks like everyone at Ohio State is super excited about their upcoming trip to Portugal.

Later this month, the Ohio State men’s lacrosse program will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel oversees to Portugal and have an unmatched cultural/educational experience. Prior to leaving, several members of the team shared their thoughts on a variety of topics, including community service initiatives, competition against the England National Team and leisure activities such as surfing.

Here’s a great post about Yale’s Brian Tevlin.

It has been an eventful year so far for Livingston resident Brian Tevlin, who is about to start his first semester as a junior at Yale University. Tevlin, a 2017 graduate of Seton Hall Prep in West Orange, followed a storied lacrosse career in high school with two distinguished seasons for the Yale lacrosse team, although he took some time off at the beginning of the 2019 Ivy League season for a selfless cause. Tevlin discovered he was a match for a patient in need of a bone marrow transplant, so, in March, he donated as part of Be The Match, which helped earn him recognition as the One Love Foundation’s Unsung Hero. He was also given Yale’s Dan Casman Award for team spirit and morale.

Here’s a good article for all you wooden lacrosse stick fans out there.

To get to work, an entrepreneur needs to have an idea and figure out the means to make it happen. But for a growing number of Montana producers, knowing where they want to make their product is also important. Such is the case of Joe Clough, who hails from the Bay Area of California but now works as a bartender at the Pin & Cue bowling alley here and also takes on mechanical jobs. It’s not so much that he has a passion for pouring drinks — though he enjoys it — it’s that the job gives him the means to stay in Montana to grow his business, Wood Spoon Lacrosse. The company builds lacrosse sticks from American ash and white oak, and they come in two versions. One is solid wood, and the other is wooden with a carbon fiber core.

James Madison hired former JMU All-American Haley Warden as an assistant coach.

One of JMU’s national-championship leaders is headed back to Harrisonburg, as Head Coach Shelley Klaes-Bawcombe announced the hiring of former James Madison All-American Haley Warden as an assistant coach for the lacrosse program on Thursday. In her role, Warden will serve as the offensive coordinator and manage draw controls, an area in which she is the program’s all-time leader in.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Larry David gave Rob McElhenney some advice about “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.”

When the creator of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm offers you advice, you listen. “I was talking to Larry David at an event and he was like, ‘Hey, can I give you a piece of advice?’” McElhenney shared. “I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’ll take a piece of advice.’ I was expecting some sort of comedic breakthrough, something about the episodes, something about an approach to the show.”

World/National News

Nearby ‘Super-Earth’ may be habitable, NASA suggests.

NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) has made several discoveries in recent days, including a planet with three suns and a sun with three planets. But the latest discovery may be the most surprising of all — an alien planet that is potentially capable of supporting life.
