For the fourth year in a row, College Crosse is proud to present this year’s All-Freshmen team honors for the 2020 season. Despite the shortened season, the All-Freshmen honors will still be given out. Beginning at the conclusion of the 2017 season, the purpose of the All-Freshmen teams are to honor the best first-year players in college lacrosse. True freshmen and redshirt freshmen are included in creating these teams.
We are continuing the All-Freshmen selections and are also bringing back former co-managing editor Chris Jastrzembski into the fold.

When he arrives home from work, Matt Dziama goes to the garage, strips off his clothes and puts them in a bag. Then he heads to the basement. His father, wearing gloves and a mask, collects the clothes, throws them in the washing machine, runs a load on the hot cycle, and discards the bag. For many who work in health care, this is a familiar snapshot of life during the COVID-19 pandemic.
”It’s been crazy,” said Dziama, a standout defensive midfielder on the University of Virginia men’s lacrosse team that won the NCAA title in 2019. “It’s definitely been an interesting experience, and I think I speak for everyone when I say I’m looking forward to things getting back to normal.”

His work this spring as an urgent care medical assistant in the Boston area is giving him a first-hand look at the COVID-19 pandemic: https://t.co/gw6oUB021V pic.twitter.com/ukNpKhgJzy— Jeff White (@JeffWhiteUVa) April 8, 2020

John Tillman has been busy building the Maryland men’s lacrosse program into one of the most dominant in all of college lacrosse, but he doesn’t forget his roots. Tillman, who grew up in Corning, N.Y., learned the value of toughness from his older brothers. He brought that mentality to the sport of lacrosse, where he used his tactical skill to make up for differences in physicality.
The Loudonville Assisted Living Residence is filled with amazing caretakers and amongst those, two Siena lacrosse players who traded their sticks to be another set of helping hands. Kaitlyn Lembo is a senior at Siena. She said ever since she was a little girl, she always wanted to be a doctor. It’s a different kind of scenery for her and goalie Anthony Tebbano. “I think it’s a fantastic place to work,” Tebbano said, “they’re in their 50th year.”
What’s Up, New PhilaJersey?
You’ve heard of a marathon before. You may have even heard of a ‘Dance-a-Thon’ or a ‘Read-a-Thon’, but you’ve probably never heard of a ‘Sew-a-Thon’. Mercer County Community College is changing that.
Before the coronavirus pandemic, Jennifer Knox would walk into her bar and soak in the sounds of people chatting while sipping on their drinks and listening to local musicians strum along on their guitars. Now, her restaurant, The Sand Bar — located in Tybee Island, Georgia — is quiet, with no customers or employees in site
