Coach Stimmel released Marquette’s 2020 schedule.

First-year head coach Andrew Stimmel has announced the 2020 schedule for the Marquette University men’s lacrosse team, featuring seven home matches at Valley Fields. “This year’s out of conference schedule provides us the opportunity to build towards a challenging BIG EAST Conference slate in March and April,” Stimmel said. “The opportunity to compete against Ohio State and Johns Hopkins in the pre-season, as well as multiple NCAA tournament teams in our nonconference schedule, will provide a learning experience our team can build upon. With the departure of some key pieces from a year ago, it will be an exciting time as we look to establish roles and set the tone for what lies ahead.”

The Terps can’t wait for 2020 to start: After coming up short last year, Maryland men’s lacrosse is building itself back up.

Maryland men’s lacrosse coach John Tillman didn’t have too much time to spend agonizing over the film of his team’s abrupt departure from the NCAA tournament last season. The conclusion of one season meant Tillman had to quickly transition to recruiting players for the future during the summer. But as is the case for him whenever a season doesn’t culminate with a national championship, thoughts about what precluded his team from hoisting a title trophy still swirled.

Not soon enough: When does the 2020 men’s college lacrosse season start?

More dual-threats coming to D1?: McDonald loves his football, lacrosse, but is playing both realistic?

What’s a guy to do? “I like both sports. It’s like an in-season type of thing,” said the 6-1, 195-pound McDonald. “When I’m in football, I love football. When I’m in lacrosse, I love lacrosse. “I could adjust to field lacrosse. Box is more about stick skills, and field is more open and about running. There’s a mix of football in it. That helps me see the field better.” ... McDonald admits there have been NCAA schools that have toyed with the idea of him playing both sports. The Delta Optmist listed the schools as Delaware & Stony Brook in a feature story earlier this season.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Thank God: Eagles beat the Packes to snap a two-game losing streak.

If at first it looks disastrous, try and try again. That seemed to be the Philadelphia Eagles’ new motto for the 2019 season. Slow starts had plagued the team for three straight weeks. They were incapable of scoring on offense. They couldn’t get any stops on defense. They had done what they could to overcome poor performances out of the gate, but the outcome didn’t change.
