(I am actually terrified.)

Despite losing to Yale for the third time in two seasons, Penn State has a chance to get back in the win column in a marquee in-state tilt between two programs on an upward trajectory in the world of college lacrosse. Much like the Nittany Lions, Penn has been a lacrosse program on the rise over the past few seasons.
The Hawk will never die.
Maryland apparently was concerned about a winter storm forecast for Central and Northern New York and refused to travel to Syracuse. So the game was moved to noon Saturday at College Park. As it turned out, nothing more than light flurries are falling in Syracuse, and there’s nothing that would make travel dangerous.
The University of Utah lacrosse team sets out this weekend to take on the Dolphins of Jacksonville. This will be the first time the Utes will face Jacksonville in the program’s young history. The Utes currently sit at 2-2-0 on the season.
Suffolk District Attorney Rachel Rollins on Friday said her office will continue to provide support for the family of Emerson College student Daniel Hollis, who was killed following an incident last year, after a grand jury declined to return indictments in the case.
We’ve tried to move 90 t of snow from the field yesterday! Unfortunately our magic wasn’t enough. The game against Munich B is cancelled for today. Sorry. #lacrosse #snow #germanlacrosse #dlaxv pic.twitter.com/T7GtehdeJK— Nürnberg Lacrosse (@NbergLax) February 29, 2020
Last weekend, Marquette men’s lacrosse set a program record for goals in a game in their win over Detroit Mercy. This is notable for reasons beyond mere rewriting of the record book. New head coach Andrew Stimmel and new offensive coordinator Peet Poillon come to Marquette with reputations as guys who coach explosive offenses.
The early games start in about three hours. I hope you get a chance to catch some of the action.
