Inside Lacrosse also posted an article that laid out some candidates for the Hopkins job.

Johns Hopkins and its search firm are moving quickly in efforts to replace Dave Pietramala, with a handful of coaches already contacted and a target to hire within roughly 10 days, several sources have told Inside Lacrosse.

Great post & interview from PressBox Online: Differing visions for Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse led to mutual split.

Jack Allard, a 26-year-old standout lacrosse player from Ridgewood, has recovered from the coronavirus after being in a medically-induced coma and left a hospital last week to the thunderous applause of the staff, Gov. Phil Murphy said Monday. Allard’s story, from healthy former college athlete to critical COVID-19 patient, was cited by Murphy at his Monday briefing to show that no one is immune from the virus.

From Syracuse.com: Syracuse lacrosse’s Danny Varello - A FOGO with FOMO.

Paul Carcaterra spoke to Coach Tierney of Denver on 4 Quarters With Carc.

Speaking of Carc .... I can’t wait for this Overtime episode to drop.

Blessed: Bronx Lacrosse gives back to community.

In 2019, the boys and girls Bronx Lacrosse teams at Highbridge Green won the Middle School Athletic City Lacrosse Championships. Sadly, their season was cut short due to COVID-19.

What’s Up, New PhilaJersey?

Oh boy: NJ residents may have to start pumping their own gas because of COVID-19.

Only during a global health emergency might New Jerseyans finally start handling a gasoline pump. A group of gas station owners believe Gov. Phil Murphy should combat what they call a budding safety and financial crisis at the pumps by suspending a singular, seven-decade old Garden State tradition: the ban on drivers fueling their own vehicles.
