2013 Lehigh Lacrosse Player Blog: Finding Our Identity


Coming off our huge win over Penn State, our squad felt like we were firing on all cylinders. The offense was starting to get very comfortable together and the defense was really starting to step up. We felt like we had corrected our early season woes and were back on the right track. We returned to an empty campus as everyone else went to Punta Cana or some other tropical place like that. Besides just going there, many of Lehigh’s students felt it necessary to post all of their pictures on every social media outlet possible. Read More…

2013 Occidental Lacrosse Player Blog: Swag Captain


If I had to describe lacrosse to someone I would say that it is the sports equivalent of the Harlem Shake. When you first watch it, you are sitting there confused as to what is happening until the beat drops and everything goes insane. You then proceed to watch forty-five different YouTube videos on it, and with each video you get more and more stoked. Read More…

My choice was none other than Harry “The Stick Doctor” Lawrence, who is one of the lone English majors on the team (AKA he was my only choice). He agreed to proofread every one of my blogs and add input as long as he got one guest blog during the year, so here it goes. Shout out to my boy Harry L on his debut… Read More…

Coast Guard Academy Lacrosse: Fireside Chat with Cadet Tim Wyderko

Screen shot 2013-03-11 at 12.23.13 PM


New London, CT – This spring, we sat down Cadet 1/c Tim Wyderko – one of three 2013 Team Captains selected at the United States Coast Guard Academy. Cadet 1/c Tim Wyderko is the anchor of the Bears defense and earned the rare honor of selection as a team captain as a junior and senior. Wyderko is a “do everything” defender – in 2012, he had 74 ground balls, six points and too many individual clearing efforts to count. “Tim is an excellent one on one defender with great intuition,” said Coach Weller.

2013 Colgate Lacrosse Player Blog: Nothing Like Home Cooking

Screen shot 2013-03-11 at 12.00.37 PM


The boys were excited to get back to the practice field and begin preparing for Hobart, as practice was upbeat and filled with energy. Laughter filled the air on Andy Kerr Stadium, as any signs from the loss on Saturday seemed to have vanished. Monday called for a usual pregame practice, with Senior Matt Baker breaking the team down before we headed in from practice. Matt did a good job putting the Cornell game behind us, and getting us pumped up to play the “Hobartians.” Read More…

2013 Lehigh Lacrosse Player Blog: Ups and Downs


This past week definitely had its ups and downs. Coming off of our player’s only meeting on Tuesday afternoon, the team had a couple of great practices on Thursday and Friday. Our squad had a new sense of confidence as we were able to discuss our problems and figure out what we needed to do to be successful. Key themes that arose from the team meeting were playing together, playing hard, and regaining that chip on our shoulder that made us so successful last year. Read More…

We came. We saw. We conquered. Napoleon said it once. The Texas Longhorns Men’s D1 (Club) Lacrosse team said it again. This past weekend in New Orleans, after dedicating weeks of sweat, blood, and tears to preparing for the first big weekend of the year, the Horns took down two of the finest D1 (Club) teams in all the land. We made the Allstate Sugar Bowl (and the streets of New Orleans… after the second game) ours for the third year in a row. Read More…

Boston University Women’s Lacrosse 2013 Player Blog: Use Your Noodle


So last week when I was complaining about the long two weeks we had before our first game, I take it back! We have officially entered crunch time and have exactly one week until our first game. What really boggles my mind is that so many other teams have already started. They have to be crazy…especially the New England schools. What if it snows? What if another Nemo attacks?! Seriously now. We’ve had the same season opener for the past 6 years and I’m not saying we’re perfect but what’s the rush? Read More…

We started practice on Monday after a team meeting in the morning and it was easy to tell everybody was excited after they showed up to the locker room over an hour early. We had gotten most of our team gear and everybody was antsy getting dressed before coach came in and told us to get out on the field and start warming up. Read More…

Colgate Lacrosse 2013 Player Blog: Training Camp and Delaware Week

Colgate Lacrosse 2013 Player Blog: Training Camp and Delaware Week


“Greatness is upon you… You better act like it.” That was the quote on the back of our practice shirts in every player’s locker before the beginning of training camp. After a tremendous season last year, the 2013 Colgate Raiders have a lot to prove and build upon. Making the quarterfinals of the 2012 NCAA tournament puts a bullseye on our backs. Read More…
