It wasn’t quite the craziness and upset-filled last two weeks, but this past weekend of college lacrosse still provided us with enough shake-up to see some changes to The College Crosse Top 20. That includes a new face at the #1 spot for the third week in a row.
Our voters are, as always, Ryan, Adam, Safe, myself, and our now not-so-new member Caroline Darney. This will be the group that constitutes the College Crosse Top 20 for this season. Directly below you can find each of our individual ballots and below that is the official College Crosse Top 20 poll for Week 4.
We know you’re pretty tired today. Whether that’s because of daylight savings time or because of Sunday’s lacrosse games is for you to answer. But regardless, we’ve got COLLEGE CROSSECAST on deck for you to listen to so you can look back at the weekend that was in NCAA Men’s Lacrosse. I’m joined by Safe and Jake as we go over what was a bit of a frantic Sunday slate of games, highlighted by whatever offensive magic was going on between Cornell and Penn State.
BTN today announced its coverage of the 2020 Big Ten men’s and women’s lacrosse seasons, televising at least 27 games, including the B1G semifinals and championship rounds, and streaming dozens of other games on BTN Plus. Additional events may be added to the schedule at a later date.
BTN’s next two men’s lacrosse games feature a pair of ranked non-conference matchups, including No. 13 Notre Dame at No. 19 Ohio State (March 10) and No. 9 Virginia at No. 6 Maryland (March 14). Later this month on March 29, No. 7 Penn State hosts the Terrapins at 7 p.m. ET in a top-10 battle. In addition to a compelling regular season lineup, BTN will also televise the semifinals and championship game of the Big Ten Men’s Lacrosse Tournament with coverage beginning on Thursday, April 30.
Hartwick College announced in an email the night of Monday, March 9, that non-conference lacrosse games scheduled for the next nine days had been canceled in response to concerns about the virus. “The College has taken this step as a precautionary measure in an effort to protect the health of our student athletes and our athletic department employees against the spread of COVID-19,” the email stated.
On campus events are strongly discouraged and should be postponed as possible. Hosted events that involve more than 100 people or use more than one-third of their venue’s capacity must be postponed or canceled. This includes events sponsored by the University, schools, departments or units, as well as student-sponsored events. Event organizers should use remote technology whenever possible.
Columbia women’s lacrosse head coach Andrea Cofrin, who has led the program for the last five seasons, announced her resignation on Monday, effective immediately. Assistant coach Taylor Pennell will assume duties as Columbia’s interim head coach and Jackie Pardee will continue to serve in her role as assistant coach. Nine games remain on the Lions’ 2020 schedule.
Kyle Brickerd and Tehoka Nanticoke are nothing alike, that much is true. Nanticoke, the crown jewel of the Albany men’s lacrosse team, weighs in at 248 pounds; approximately 50 pounds heavier than Brickerd. A member of the world-renowned Iroquois Nationals, Nanticoke has racked up 94 goals in 36 games. Brickerd, in contrast, has two goals in 12 career appearances, none of which were starts.
