Excitement has come naturally to the Lehigh lacrosse program as of late. As I mentioned last week, I’ve never seen the kind of energy and enthusiasm from our team that I do now. Guys are learning first hand that winning, unlike losing, is easy to handle, and excitement about Lehigh lacrosse, in turn, continues to compound. Read More…

Coming off a great Patriot League win against Holy Cross, our sights were immediately set on Binghamton to continue a strong spring break. They’re a team we hadn’t beaten in two years, and always proved to be a tough adversary. We practiced on Sunday a bit to go through our fundamentals along with an intro to Binghamton’s offense. Following the practice we went back to the locker room to go over the scouting reports. Read More…

So it’s spring break for us here at Fairfield and while everyone’s away enjoying their trips to Punta Cana, Florida or wherever, we get to stay here (life of a college laxer). Lucky us we even got to see some snow up in Vermont this past sunday, but hey at least we came out with a win. The good thing about Fairfield is that we live on a beach and the temperature’s been in the 70′s and sunny so no complaints. Read More…

Lehigh Men’s Lacrosse 2012 Player Blog: Hype Train Through Bethlehem

It’s week 7 now, and the hype train continues to run through Bethlehem. With our team coming off a monumental spring break trip, the Yale game on Sunday was an opportunity to keep the momentum going. On the other hand, though, it had the potential to completely derail the buzz surrounding our program with a loss, an outcome a lot of people probably expected for us. Read More…

Colgate Men’s Lacrosse 2012 Player Blog: Better Ingredients, Better Pizza

Right after we changed out of our wet clothes, we got into our jackets and ties for the bus ride to Worcester, MA. The movie chosen for the bus was The Departed, which starts with the song, “I’m Shipping Up to Boston.” Another fun fact about it is that it unofficially stars former team member Frank Coughlin as cop/not cop William Costigan. Then, upon arriving at our hotel, we watched film and had some Papa John’s pizza ordered in. Read More…

Sweet sweet sweet lax. Lacrosse is the best sport on this planet on so many levels. It’s like that really hip song Levels by Avicii in that it just goes from one epic level to the next. First off, it’s got the coolest bros, sickest equipment, and the ladies love it. It’s got the open field style of soccer, the hard hits of football, and the offensive and defensive strategies of basketball. It’s no wonder why the sport is growing exponentially huge. Read More…

Spring Break 2012 – no regrets. Year in and year out, everyone in the college community looks forward to the time in early March when school breaks. Most students head to the tropics.

Back at it again and another overtime win. 1 was understandable, 2 was enough, 3 … well there’s no need for that. I felt like we had the chance to run away with that game, but UMBC kept battling so props to them. The good thing is we’re winning these one goal games after last season where we lost five games by a goal. It’s still early in the season and we still have a lot to work on, but it’s a great feeling being 4-0 and getting some respect by being ranked in the top 20. Read More…
