GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for April 14, 2020.

College Crosse News

US Lacrosse Magazine with a great post on TD: TD Ierlan reflects on career as Ivy League Schools levy eligibility rulings.

TD Ierlan has already transferred once, leaving Albany after his sophomore campaign for Yale, a school at which he’s participated in an NCAA championship game and set countless NCAA records. Transferring a second time doesn’t seem feasible for the all-time faceoff great. “I think two schools is a good limit for me,” Ierlan said on Friday. “I’d pass on a third school. That’s a little bit too much.”

From ‘Bittersweet’ Nick Mellen’s career with Syracuse lacrosse is over.

All-American defender Nick Mellen is hanging up his Syracuse lacrosse jersey. The fifth-year senior announced in an Instagram post that he will not be seeking the extra year of eligibility granted by the NCAA to spring sport athletes whose season were cut short by the coronavirus.

Here is a touching post by Penn’s Teia Ross: Despite its early end, my lacrosse career was my Penn identity.

Your opportunity will come. For three years I heard that from my teammates, just waiting for the chance to show that I’ve been learning every day, making the most of my limited reps, and turning extra work sessions into my own practices.

Yale freshman BJ Burlace is reportedly on the move to Maryland.

Everyone’s doing their part: Farrell lacrosse players extend a helping hand in the fight against coronavirus.

The spring sports season may not be played this year, but that isn’t keeping four of Monsignor Farrell’s senior lacrosse players from getting out into the field. Andrew DiCostanzo, Mel Maurice, Nick Mule, and Anthony Polio, along with Holy Name Society President Matthew Bilotto, traded in their lacrosse gloves for a pair of the latex variety while helping distribute food to those in need.

FINALLY! You can now vote on the best Syracuse lacrosse player of all-time.
