College Crosse News

Navy unveils 2020 schedule which features five 2019 NCAA Tournament teams and the return of Johns Hopkins.

Seven home games, including the return of the Johns Hopkins series, highlight the 2020 Navy men’s lacrosse schedule released Tuesday by first-year head coach Joe Amplo. Navy’s first three games of the 2020 campaign will be against programs the Mids have never played, including kicking off the season on Feb. 7 against Manhattan. Led by sixth-year head coach Drew Kelleher, the Jaspers put together a 6-8 record last spring and finished the season as the top-ranked man-down defense (.833) in the country and second best in clearing percentage (.888).

Be on the look out for Chris’ breakdown of Navy’s 2020 schedule.

Congrats to former Robert Morris star Tyson Gibson who went 1st in the NLL Entry Draft to the New York Riptide.

You can find a list of the rest of the 2019 NLL Entry Draft picks here.

Touching video from Cornell men’s lacrosse.

Good article from Women’s college lacrosse coaches think games are too long. Here’s their fix.

Florida women’s lacrosse coach Amanda O’Leary remembers when games in her sport took 90 minutes, or maybe a few minutes longer. That pace seems like a relic of the past. Now, it’s common for those contests -- two 30-minute halves plus a 15-minute halftime -- to run past the 2 1/2 hour mark. Zzzzzzzz.


#AnotherOne: Division III Edgewood College to introduce men’s & women’s lacrosse in spring of 2021.

In spring of 2021, the Edgewood College Athletic Department will be introducing men’s volleyball and both men’s and women’s lacrosse to the lineup of athletics offered at the college. Amidst the chatter of declining enrollment at Edgewood, Athletic Director Al Brisack has high hopes for the new teams encouraging incoming freshmen to choose Edgewood as their place of study and to practice athletics. “It’ll help,” said Brisack. “The reality is we’re in a position from Athletics where we can help with that.”

What’s Up, New PhilaYorkJersey?

STAND UP, NEW JERSEY: ony Soprano ranked #3 HBO character of all time.

When HBO asked viewers to pick their top three favorite HBO characters, one name saw so much action, it trended on Twitter for most of Tuesday. The name? Tony Soprano, of course. Soprano’s name seemed to pop up the most in reply to HBO’s informal poll. The question was part of the cable network’s Recommended by Humans initiative, which presents itself as an alternative to streaming algorithms, relying on reviews from individual viewers and their comment on social media in order to recommend HBO programming.

Ditto: Ex-Google worker fears “mass atrocities” caused by killer robots.

Increasingly sophisticated killer AI robots and machines could accidentally start a war and lead to mass atrocities, an ex-Google worker has told The Guardian. Laura Nolan resigned from Google last year in protest at being assigned to Project Maven, which was aimed at enhancing U.S. military drone technology. She has called for all unmanned autonomous weapons to be banned.
