GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for September 20, 2019.

College Crosse News

Check out Chris’ breakdown of Air Force’s 2020 schedule.

The Air Force Falcons are the 3rd team in our 2020 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the first team from the SoCon. The Falcons finished 10-5 in 2019 and 6-1 in SoCon play. Air Force reached the conference semifinals, but lost in a low-scoring 7-6 matchup with Richmond.

Blessed: Lacrosse the only profitable sport for OHSAA in this year’s state tournaments.

The Ohio High School Athletic Association Board of Directors held its regularly scheduled September meeting Thursday morning at the OHSAA office. The Board received the attendance and financial reports from the OHSAA’s spring state tournaments of baseball, lacrosse, softball, boys tennis and track & field. All the spring sports state tournaments except lacrosse were a financial loss for the OHSAA.

Kentucky is inching closer to sanctioning high school lacrosse as an official sport.

Lacrosse appears a baby step closer to becoming an official high school sport after a decision made Thursday by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association Board of Control. The board recommended creating a focus group on sanctioning boys’ and girls’ lacrosse following a recent survey of its membership showing 56 votes from its members in favor or a boys’ spring season and 54 votes in favor of the same for girls, the KHSAA said in a release after its regular meeting in Lexington.

Here’s another article about Kentucky’s cautious approaches towards sanctioning high school lacrosse.

The Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s Board of Control on Thursday voted to take a wait-and-see approach on the topic of sponsoring championships for boys and girls lacrosse. KHSAA commissioner Julian Tackett said the board wants to receive more information from schools that haven’t started lacrosse programs but expressed interest in doing so in a recent survey.

This is fine and all, but I really Syracuse to come out with all-black jerseys in 2020.

Never too early to spruce up your resume, fam.

Back to work!!

A design-build team of ARC/Architectural Resources Cambridge and Suffolk Construction will plan, design, and construct Brown University’s new soccer and lacrosse complex. As envisioned, the three-story facility will include dedicated team locker rooms, a training room, head and assistant coaches’ offices, and team meeting spaces.

What’s Up, New PhilaYorkJersey?

Like: Everyone in Philly hates Facebook’s new dating app sidewalk ads.

In case you haven’t heard (or if the ubiquitous social media site hasn’t already informed you — or if you haven’t literally stepped on an ad for it), Facebook has launched a new dating functionality. It is, rather predictably, named “Facebook Dating,” and it allows you to fish for future partners or spouses or disappointments while, of course, spreading even more of your precious personal data all over the interwebs.

World/National News

Oh boy: Navy confirms videos did capture UFO sightings, but it calls them by another name.

Three videos posted online that have been described as being related to UFO sightings do indeed include footage of “unidentified aerial phenomena,” a U.S. Navy spokesman confirmed. But as for specifics, spokesman Joseph Gradisher said the Navy doesn’t know exactly what the objects are.
