GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for September 9, 2019.

College Crosse News

The Capital Gazette with a nice profile on Pat March.

Anne Arundel County native Pat March was recently named offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator for the Syracuse University men’s lacrosse program. March grew up in Glen Burnie and played multiple sports at Mount St. Joseph before continuing his lacrosse career at Roanoke College. “I’m honored to be offered the opportunity to become a part of a program with a great tradition of success and a long lineage of great players,” said March, who thanked head coach John Desko, associate athletic director Jamie Mullin and athletic director John Wildhack. “I am excited get to campus, meet the team and get to work.”

Nice hops!

Wheelchair lacrosse offers team sport for disabled athletes.

There are currently only two wheelchair lacrosse teams in the state, but folks in Canton hope to create a third. Rich Randall coaches one of those two teams, the Buffalo Bandits. He was tired of not having local teams to compete with. “We’re trying to get the Rochester team to get a team, we’re trying to get Syracuse, Albany, southern Ontario,” he said. “We went to Colorado last year and it’s beautiful, but I want to do some local stuff.”

Nothing like a little tug-of-war to get the squad ready for the fall season.

Simple, yet elegant.


Just win, baby: How the U.S. U19 conquered the world.

The bottom floor of Peter Gzowski College features an open-air design. Tons of natural sunlight pours in through floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Exposed concrete beams add to the minimalist feel. It sits beneath the dorm rooms that house many World Lacrosse Women’s U19 World Championship participants and also features a row of classrooms where coaches break down film and go over scouting reports with their teams. The building, on the campus of Peterborough, Ontario’s Trent University, is named Enwayaang, which translates from one of North America’s oldest Native American languages to “the way we speak together.”

What’s Up, New PhilaYorkJersey?

SUUUUUUPER BOWL: The Eagles beat Washington yesterday, 32-27.

How does that old saying go? It’s not how you start but how you finish? The Eagles lived that saying on Sunday afternoon, climbing out of a 17-0 hole to hand the Washington Redskins a 32-27 defeat on the opening weekend of the season. One game down, one win over a divisional opponent. And while a victory over Washington may have been expected going in, it’s still an essential victory for a team that hopes to do major damage in the playoffs down the line.

World/National News

People are fleeing the big cities in droves and moving to places like Boise, ID.

Kelly Swift grew tired of the Los Angeles area a few years ago so she decided to leave—and take her job with her. Ms. Swift kept her role in health-care information-technology consulting, and her California salary, when she and her family settled in a suburb of Boise, Idaho. Her employer didn’t mind that she started working from home. Ms. Swift joined a group of workers fueling a renaissance in U.S. cities that lie outside the major job hubs.
