GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for September 12, 2019.

Fully remodeled and views for days. This may sound like an advertisement for a newly built home, and in many ways, that is what we’re talking about. The new home of both University of Utah Soccer and Lacrosse. Ute Field finished construction in August, located just east of the Student Life Center. The old field was simply not enough for a high-level university in a power conference facing elite competition.
Thank you for this @DUCoachTierney.— Chris Jastrzembski (@Chris_Jast) September 11, 2019
Now do the same @Other74D1MLaxTeams.
Jesse and Jake Bernhardt are the sons of a coach — and a good one at that. Jim Bernhardt drilled in his three sons (including the youngest, Jared) the work ethic it would take to be successful. Whatever they chose to play, the Bernhardt brothers were destined to have a career in sports. All thanks to a father that was tough when he needed to be, but compassionate just the same. “He just had a great perspective on things,” Jake said. “Whether it was lacrosse or football, he was a coach first.”
BACK TO WORK!
A $20 million lacrosse stadium is the next step for Ohio State University’s growing athletics district on west campus. The men’s and women’s teams are responsible for raising the full construction costs. The athletics department has not yet responded to requests for the amounts raised to date. Trustees last month approved $2.3 million of the total for design.
Rest in peace: Yesterday teams throughout the country honored former players, loved ones and first responders who died during the attacks on September 11th.

We will be taking a break from our normally scheduled content today because it is important to reflect upon the tragic events that took place 18 years ago. Today is a day of unity; to share our stories and remember those who were lost. Today and every day, we are proud Americans, and we will NEVER forget
“September 11, 2001, revealed heroism in ordinary people who might have gone through their lives never called upon to demonstrate the extent of their courage.” —Geraldine Brooks pic.twitter.com/f7EsMzUFou— Army M.Lacrosse (@ArmyWP_MLax) September 11, 2019
