GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for April 29, 2020.

College Crosse News

UVM men’s lacrosse head coach Chris Feifs talked to ABC 22 about the shortened 2020 season & seniors eligibility option.

The Vermont men’s lacrosse team was selected as the preseason favorite in America East. The Catamounts only had the chance to play four games on the schedule before the 2020 season came to a screeching halt. The COVID-19 Pandemic put a complete stop to NCAA spring sports mid-March.

From Bill Wagner of the Capital Gazette: “It was the most fun I’ve ever had” - Seniors reflect fondly of shortened Navy men’s lacrosse season.

Ryan Kern certainly did not expect to be spending the second half of the spring semester on Cape Cod. As a senior men’s lacrosse standout at the Naval Academy, Kern has become accustomed to this being the most hectic time of the year.

The grind never stops.

HBO to feature Cascade lacrosse’s role in coronavirus fight.

A Liverpool manufacturer of lacrosse helmets will be in the national spotlight tonight when HBO Real Sports airs a program focusing on the company’s effort to help fight the coronavirus pandemic. Cascade Lacrosse had idled its plant in March and furloughed 50 employees because it was considered a non-essential business.


From US Lacrosse Mag: Powered by its midfield, Syracuse men built for the spotlight.

Last Friday, the ACC Network scheduled Instagram live Q&A’s for Syracuse midfielders Jamie Trimboli and Brendan Curry with ESPN analyst Paul Carcaterra at 3 p.m. The production did not get off to a seamless start. Trimboli struggled to get onscreen. He attempted to join via the Syracuse Men’s Lacrosse account, then his personal one. He swapped his laptop for his cell phone, then back again. Nothing seemed to work.

More transfer news from our boy, Chris.

Lovely post from The Montclarion: A redemption story yet to be finished.

Montclair State University women’s lacrosse attack Rhiannon Brown, one of the teams’ best-conditioned players, could not understand why preparing for 2019 was such a struggle. Brown was often out of breath during practices, even after completing a drill or two. Walking from one dorm building to another became difficult. “It felt as if my lungs were collapsing,” Brown said.

Former Brighton High School boys lacrosse players including Maryland lacrosse player Bubba Fairman organized a drive-by parade to honor current players whose senior season was lost due to COVID-19.

Soccer, lacrosse, field hockey being lined up as 1st kids sports to return to action in B.C.

“The way we view traditional sport in the past is going to change,” said Newman on The Early Edition. He said members will more than likely need a “hybrid approach” that combines health measures with how the games are played. Soccer, field hockey and lacrosse have been selected for now, said Newman, because they “traditionally would not have transmission of COVID because of the equipment used in those sports.”

Everyone’s doing their part: Plum lacrosse player spending spring as “essential worker.”

Most of the world might be shut down, but Carli Chini has never been busier. The Plum senior might not be able to take the field with her Mustangs lacrosse teammates, but she’s certainly not sitting around the house moping. Chini is an “essential worker,” spending five days a week at her part-time job at Shop ‘n Save and helping residents of the East Suburbs get their groceries while they are quarantined at home during the coronavirus pandemic.

What’s Up, New PhilaJersey?

The Blue Angels flew over Jersey, NYC, & Philly, and it was spectacular.

The Thunderbirds and the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, honored those on the frontline of COVID-19 with a formation flight over New York City and New Jersey Tuesday. The salute in the skies from the Air Force and Navy honored of healthcare workers, first responders, military, and other essential personnel.

Here’s a link with over 50 great photos of the flyover from around NYC & NJ.

In related news, I am moving to Belgium: Belgians urged to eat fries twice a week as coronavirus creates massive potato surplus.

Belgians are being called upon to eat fries at least twice a week as more than 750,000 tons of potatoes are at risk of being thrown away. The coronavirus crisis has led to a surplus of potatoes in the small European country, as demand for frites — a national dish of twice-fried potatoes often eaten in bars and restaurants — has slumped amid Belgium’s government-enforced lockdown.
