Cleveland State announced Nick Acquaviva as their new assistant coach.
Cleveland State University head men’s lacrosse coach Andy German announced the addition of Nick Acquaviva as assistant coach Monday afternoon.
Acquaviva brings six years of NCAA coaching experience to Cleveland, including helping two different programs to national rankings.
”I’m thrilled to welcome Nick to the Viking lacrosse family,” German said. “His experience as a player along with his experience coaching across all divisions of college lacrosse will be a huge asset to our program.”
Acquaviva served as the volunteer assistant at Colgate last season under first-year head coach Matt Karweck. He coached the goaltenders and the man-down unit and helped the Raiders to a win over No. 10 Syracuse in his first game on staff.

Premier Lacrosse League honoring Cornell and Syracuse legends.
Some of the most significant names in central New York lacrosse history are among those being recognized by the Premier Lacrosse League through its postseason awards. The list of names includes former Cornell players Eamon McEneaney and George Boiardi; and former Syracuse standouts Jim Brown, Oren Lyons and the Gait Brothers: Paul and Gary.
Holy Cross had some wicked seats for the Pats game.
Inside Lacrosse did a podcast with new Hampton head coach, Rashad Devoe, to discuss coach’s background and the future of the Pirates.
Rashad Devoe is braver than most lacrosse coaches. Some talk about thriving in adverse situations. Others live it. The second head coach in Hampton’s history presents a travelogue across his sport’s landscape that would intimidate Lewis and Clark.
Thx Coach Lasagna & @Inside_Lacrosse for the conversation/podcast & for the great article on @Hampton_MLAX the History of the program & Me. @HUAthletics1868 #RaiseTheBar https://t.co/xlrDtWXTBn— Rashad Devoe (@DevoeHP) September 9, 2019
Hampton will play 8 D1 opponents next season and a full slate in 2021. Already moving in the right direction. https://t.co/PI3hUet2Bk— Chris Jastrzembski (@Chris_Jast) September 9, 2019

#AnotherOne: Princeton ranked best school in New Jersey (and the United States).
If it is early September, it must be college ranking season. Therefore, it must be the time of year that U.S. News & World Report will proclaim Princeton University and Williams College the top schools in the country. Which is once again the conclusion of lists U.S. News released Monday. For the ninth straight year, Princeton was the No. 1 national university, according to U.S. News.
