2019 Men’s College Lacrosse Year In Review: #1 Virginia Cavaliers.

Season Summary - The past decade was an up-and-down one for Virginia lacrosse. After winning a national title in 2011, the Cavaliers missed the NCAA Tournament in 2013 followed by two first round exits the next couple of seasons. They missed the tournament again in 2016 and a messy divorce with Dom Starsia brought Lars Tiffany in as head coach. But after missing the tournament again in 2017, things looked to go up even though the Cavaliers were eliminated in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in 2018.

Special shout out to Chris for all the fantastic work he did this summer on the Year In Review series. #HardestWorkingKidInTheBiz

Sources: Syracuse to hire Princeton’s Pat March as next assistant coach.

Princeton Tigers men’s lacrosse offensive coordinator Pat March will be hired as an assistant coach for the Syracuse Orange, multiple sources have told myself and our sister site College Crosse. March will replace Kevin Donahue as a permanent assistant coach and will work with the team’s offensive unit. Donahue moved into a volunteer assistant role in late August. March has spent the last three seasons with the Tigers, ranking in the top 10 in scoring offense in each of those years. He’s also spent time at Vermont, Dickinson, and Roanoke, his alma mater. This summer, March has been the offensive coordinator of the Atlanta Blaze in Major League Lacrosse, working with head coach and Orange alum Liam Banks.

Back to work!

Six Yale seniors allegedly leave women’s lacrosse team.

Over the past week, six seniors on the Yale women’s lacrosse team allegedly walked away from the program and prematurely concluded their collegiate athletic careers. The team, in its fifth year under head coach Erica Bamford, included eight seniors as of last spring. Over the course of the last week, however, all but two reportedly left the team. As of Monday evening, the Bulldogs’ roster had not yet been updated to reflect the departures. Last spring, Yale finished with a 6–9 overall record and just one victory in Ivy League play. Bamford neither confirmed nor denied the members’ departures.

Hit those books, fam.

Robert Morris adds Sean Doyle to its staff.

Robert Morris University men’s lacrosse head coach Andrew McMinn has announced the hiring of Sean Doyle ‘18 as an assistant coach. “I am extremely excited to add Sean to our staff and welcome him back as a Colonial,” said McMinn. “He displayed an unparalleled work ethic as a player and has since shown exactly that as a coach. He proved himself very quickly at VMI in taking on a lot of responsibilities and developing under Coach Brisner. Additionally, culture is of the utmost importance to our program and Sean is someone who understands the Colonial way and who we want to be. I am very confidence that he will be invaluable to the program.”

What’s Up, New PhilaYorkJersey?

I do not see a lie here: Philadelphia is one of 2019’s worst cities to drive in, study says.

The 2019 driving report, released Tuesday, measures the 100 largest American cities using 30 indicators of driver friendliness. Criteria included cost of ownership and maintenance of vehicles, traffic and infrastructure, safety, and access to vehicles and maintenance.
