College Crosse News

As first Tweeted out by College Crosse’s Chris Jastrzembski on Sunday: UMBC announced the addition of former Lehigh star Craig Chick to its staff on Monday afternoon.

UMBC head men’s lacrosse coach Ryan Moran has tabbed Craig Chick as volunteer assistant lacrosse coach for the Retriever program. “Our program is extremely excited to bring Craig on to our staff,” Moran said. “He is the type of person that reflects what the culture of our program hopes to represent. Our coaching staff and players are eager to hear and benefit from his input.” Chick just completed a brilliant career at Lehigh, earning the university’s highest USILA All-American honor in 93 years of competition.

Providence adds Kevin Gould as an assistant coach.

Providence College men’s lacrosse Head Coach Chris Gabrielli announced today [Sept. 16] that Kevin Gould has joined his staff as an assistant coach/offensive coordinator. “We are thrilled to welcome Kevin Gould to the Friar Lacrosse Family,” Gabrielli said. “Kevin is an established name in our sport, especially in New England, where he excelled as an All-American player at Duxbury High School and Bentley, before continuing his playing career with the Boston Cannons for three years.

From the Baltimore Sun’s Ed Lee: Former Towson lacrosse player Adam Baxter to make boxing debut with Haymakers for Hope to “knock out cancer.”

Like any mother, Karin Baxter watched with a little trepidation as her sons Adam and Jacob played high school football for Severna Park and college lacrosse — the former at Towson and the latter at Maryland. But when Adam Baxter informed his mom about four months ago that he intended to dip his toe into boxing, her concern understandably reached new heights.

Let’s give Flagler a warm College Crosse welcome!

Here’s the press release from Flagler College.

The Flagler College administration and athletics department announced the addition of four NCAA athletics programs: men’s lacrosse, women’s lacrosse, men’s outdoor track and field, and women’s outdoor track and field in the Flagler Room of the Ponce de Leon Hall Monday afternoon. These additions will bring the total number of Flagler College’s sport offerings up to 20.

Wheeling University will bring back its men’s & women’s lacrosse programs after dropping them amid the late 2000s financial crisis,

Wheeling University has announced plans to reinstate several academic and athletic programs that had been temporarily eliminated from their club and course offerings last March ... Several Wheeling University athletic programs will also be reinstated in 2020, including men’s golf, men’s and women’s lacrosse, and men’s and women’s swimming.

Marin Voice: Referees are leaving sports they love and parents are to blame.

The fall athletic season is upon us. And if the trend continues, officials’ organizations will be struggling to find referees for all of the games. From high school varsity level to youth leagues — all officials organizations will be scrambling to find people to blow whistles, raise flags, throw flags and manage contests. As a lacrosse official, I can tell you firsthand that we lost more officials than we gained this year. Why? The No. 1 reason cited by most officials leaving the sport is the behavior of parents.

FORE!: Great video from OSU’s alumni golf weekend.

Syracuse is getting new lids.
