College Crosse News

From Inside Lacrosse: Yale’s Jackson Morrill and Lucas Cotler Enter NCAA’s Portal.

Yale seniors Jackson Morrill and Lucas Cotler entered the NCAA’s Transfer Portal to explore their options as grad students, multiple sources told Inside Lacrosse on Wednesday morning.

Great post from US Lacrosse Magazine on Jack Allard.

Jack Allard likened it to a long nap. He fell asleep in one hospital bed in New Jersey and woke up in another in Philadelphia. The normally clean-shaven 26-year-old had a thick ginger beard and a tube penetrating his neck, the other end of it attached to a ventilator. Twenty days had passed. Allard had no idea he had gone viral — literally and figuratively.

Even the Daily Mail did an article on Allard’s recovery from COVID-19.

Incredible footage shows a 26-year-old New Jersey man who was in a coronavirus coma leaving hospital after he recovered while taking part in an experimental drug trial. The video shared online shows staff cheering Jack Allard as he finally walks out of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in West Philadelphia, more than a month after he fell ill with the killer bug.

The grind never stops.

From Delaware State News: CR grad Stevenson set for fresh start with Hens.

Demetrius Stevenson was torn between the two. The Caesar Rodney High lacrosse standout had verbally committed to Rutgers. But he was intrigued by Delaware, which had just hired a new head coach in Ben DeLuca. “It was a big decision, kind of going back and forth between sticking with my commitment to Rutgers or switching and going to UD,” said Stevenson.

Looking good, Mrs. O’Brien!

From Syracuse.com: Syracuse lacrosse could have questions on ‘D’ in 2021, but Peter Dearth has some answers.

The Syracuse lacrosse team had one of the deepest and most entertaining offenses in the country this spring, one that earned a well-deserved spotlight. But at the other end of the field, SU’s defense more than held up its end of the bargain in helping the team to a 5-0 mark and a ranking of No. 1 at the time the season was cancelled because of the coronavirus.

Vote for Chris today!

From the Albany Times Union: Scott Marr staying with UAlbany men’s lacrosse

University at Albany men’s lacrosse coach Scott Marr said he has no intention of waiting around for a phone call from Johns Hopkins that still hadn’t come as of Tuesday afternoon. Marr said he will stay with the Great Danes, the program he has built into a lacrosse power over the past two decades.

From US Lacrosse Magazine: The WPLL isn’t going away without a fight.

Michele DeJuliis, CEO and founder of the Women’s Professional Lacrosse League, wants to make something clear. Despite the recent restructuring and cancellation of the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the WPLL isn’t going away. Not without a fight.

At times of stress I make jokes.

The lost season for the Colorado College men’s lacrosse team.

“It sucks every single day,” “It was heartbreaking,” “Still sometimes I’ll see that we were supposed to play today and that will kind of make me angry,” Those are the feelings from some of the seniors on the Colorado College men’s lacrosse team.

What’s Up, New PhilaJersey?

Meeeee-ow: Seven more big cats at Bronx Zoo test positive for coronavirus.

Four more tigers and three lions at the Bronx Zoo have tested positive for coronavirus, officials announced Wednesday. The animals were tested after Nadia, a four-year-old Malaysian tiger, was confirmed to have the bug earlier this month, the Wildlife Conservation Society said in a statement.
