Screen shot 2013-02-22 at 2.01.22 PM


Last Thursday was a huge day for a couple of reasons: Villanova was looming and it was Valentine’s Day. Let’s start with Valentine’s Day. There were a couple highlights for the Lehigh lacrosse team, as Kyle Stiefel set the record for most social media posts in a day regarding his girlfriend. Alan Henderson was Valentineless on Thursday, but he made up for that with his performance with the ladies on Saturday. Fortunately for myself, Alex, my high school sweetheart, was my valentine. All my buddies call her “the one that got away,” but I am working hard to make sure that is not the case. Read More…

Screen shot 2013-02-19 at 12.35.05 PM


After the Sunday victory over Bryant, we were fortunate (or NCAA mandated) to receive a day off on Monday from lacrosse activities. The break gave some players a chance to rest and recoup after the tough overtime victory, while other guys used the time to lift and get in extra skill work. The day off was short lived as an 11:30 film session came quickly on Tuesday. Read More…

Colgate Lacrosse 2013 Player Blog: Bryant for #1


With poor road conditions following the storm, the trip to Bryant was a long one as it spanned a little under 6 hours. We continued back-to-back solid movie performances, with the playing of Ted and The Bourne Legacy. Some of the older guys were keeping entertained by playing Pokémon in the back of the bus, but for their sake I will keep those names confidential. Read More…

2013 Lehigh Men’s Lacrosse Player Blog: We Got a Ring But We Still Ring Chasing

Screen shot 2013-02-07 at 11.01.57 AM


As all of the boys voyaged back to Lehigh on Friday, January 11th, there was only one goal on our minds: win the 2013 National Championship. Looking back at a stellar 2012 campaign, we accomplished many firsts in school history. It was an unbelievable opportunity to be a part of that Mountain Hawks team, as the flywheel got rolling like I could have never imagined. However, with a new team, new faces and the loss of an unbelievable senior class, our squad quickly realized the monumental task ahead of us. Read More…

Colgate Lacrosse 2013 Player Blog: Final Tune Up – Albany Scrimmage

Screen shot 2013-02-04 at 2.38.12 PM


Last year we were grateful to have a great senior class that kept our energy level high at all times, spearheaded by “DJ” Jason Coppersmith. Our game day energy level was phenomenal a year ago, but as the old sports adage goes, “you practice how you play” and in order to keep up that energy level this season it needs to start in practice.

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…
