Jake, Ryan, & I taped a special Crossecast episode with Penn State’s Grant Ament.

On this edition of COLLEGE CROSSECAST, we’re joined by none other than Penn State senior attackman Grant Ament. The Nittany Lion showed throughout his collegiate career that he was one of the best attackmen in the nation, being a huge catalyst in the Penn State offensive machine that put up huge numbers on the scoreboard.

In this episode we talk about a variety of topics. From his upbringing into lacrosse, his career at Penn State, his redshirt senior year being cut off short due to the Coronavirus crisis, and his ambitions in pro lacrosse, we cover a lot of ground and get some great insight from one of the sport’s brightest stars.

When Kate Bieraugel has felt she is nearing her breaking point in conditioning workouts or strength training sessions with the Mount St. Mary’s women’s lacrosse program, the junior midfielder has relied on a simple motivation. “When I get really tired or start thinking, ‘I can’t do it,’ there’s just two words in my head, and they’re ‘For Mom,’ and that has gotten me through all of my workouts,” she said.

From the Inquirer: It’s a new world for these former Villanova lacrosse players headed into nursing.

Three future nurses were playing lacrosse for Villanova, without even the possibility of a thought of how much 2020 could be different than 2019. They weren’t stars.
