GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for January 22, 2020.

College Crosse News

Eastern Michigan settled a lawsuit filed by two female athletes and is now free to add women’s lacrosse.

Eastern Michigan University does not have to reinstate its softball program but has committed to numerous initiatives to create more opportunities for female athletes and has agreed to a six-figure payout to two student-athletes who sued the university, according to a settlement filed in federal court Tuesday.

Coach Stimmel of Marquette talked about his boys and their first scrimmage of the year last Saturday.

US Lacrosse Magazine with a nice preview of Denver.


Only two teams in Division I lost a larger percentage of its starts to graduation than Denver. And Pioneers coach Bill Tierney knows full well how outsiders might size up his team as he starts his second decade in the Mile High City.

You’ll have three opportunities to PLL games at Stony Brook this summer.

The matchups for the three games have yet to be announced, but Chanenchuk — an East Setauket native who was a Newsday All-Long Island first-team selection from St. Anthony’s in 2008 — already is excited.

Pat “Buckets” Spencer is at it again.

The Times Union with a good post on Tehoka Nanticoke.

Tehoka Nanticoke spoke Tuesday, which was noteworthy in itself.

The University at Albany junior lacrosse star was made off-limits to the media a year ago by head coach Scott Marr during a bumpy sophomore season.

Ready for redemption: Speaking of Albany, the Great Danes were featured on an ABC News 10 segment yesterday.

Scott Marr’s squad is coming off its first losing season since 2012, while the women fell to Stony Brook in the America East final for the seventh straight year. Both teams are hungry, as they field experienced teams in 2020.

Back to work!

“So I was behind the net and no one was on me,” recalled Herrero. “I was like why not because it could give us the lead. I tried it and honestly don’t remember what happened because it was a blur.”
