GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for January 9, 2020.

College Crosse News

Make sure you read Chris’ post on Monmouth’s 2020 calendar.

The Monmouth Hawks are the 71st team in our 2020 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the eighth team from the MAAC. Mercer finished 4-8 overall in 2019 and 3-4 in MAAC play. The Hawks failed to qualify for the MAAC Tournament.

Also, check out Chris’ breakdown of UMBC’s 2020 schedule.

The UMBC Retrievers are the 72nd team in our 2020 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the seventh and final team from the America East. UMBC finished 7-9 overall in 2019 and 2-4 in America East play. The Retrievers defeated Stony Brook and Vermont to win the America East Championship before beating Marist in the NCAA Play-In game. They fell to Penn State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Maryland announced plans for major renovations for women’s lacrosse.

Since 2003, the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex has served as the home for two of Maryland’s most successful programs. During this time, the Field Hockey & Women’s Lacrosse programs have combined to win 10 NATIONAL TITLES, 38 NATIONAL PLAYER OF THE YEAR HONORS, and have produced numerous Olympians and All-American Awards.

To further this level of excellence, a major upgrade is needed. With a total project cost of $4 million, this stadium renovation will include a comprehensive enhancement of the facility transforming the existing 5,500 square foot facility into a 12,000 square foot team house.
