2013 Lehigh Lacrosse Player Blog: The Tribe’s Final Ride

By Lacrosse Playground | April 19, 2013 |
Last Friday night was a huge win. With the Regular Season Championship on the line, we were able to pull out the win over a very talented Bucknell team. As “Clarity” was bumping in the locker room after the win, and everyone was jumping up and down, it finally hit me; we would be hosting the Patriot League Tournament for the first time in school history. This is one of many of the firsts that we have accomplished since I have been here, and this was quite the turn around from my freshman year when we didn’t even qualify for the Patriot League Tournament.

The loss to our rivals was a tough one, but the close decision gave us the confidence that we could beat anyone in our league. Next up would be a Saturday matchup with the Lafayette Leopards.

The winner will earn the right to host the 2013 Patriot League Tournament, which is huge. This has been a goal of ours all season, as Lehigh has never hosted before. Bucknell is a very talented team that is extremely well coached, so we know we will have our hands full. As Coach Cassese said, “This game is going to be an absolute tilt,” and I couldn’t agree more.

2013 Colgate Lacrosse Player Blog: Battle in Bethlehem

By Lacrosse Playground | April 8, 2013 |
After the loss to Army we were forced to regroup and recover for our upcoming game against the team from Bethlehem. Not much needed to be said to get us going for this one, as we were playing the team that took the Patriot League Championship away from us last year. That ring hanging above the entrance to our locker room all spring, that flag they stomped on our field, that was all we needed to motivate us throughout the week and on game day. Read More...

I would be doing a disservice to my readers to note mention the charity auction that a few of our seniors were lucky enough to participate in on Friday night. Seniors Jimmy Queeney, Bill Manning, and Connor Brown took part in The Brothers Society charity auction, where lovely Colgate females had the opportunity to bid for a date with three of our finest seniors. They ended up going in as a unit, which was a good idea since each guy gives something you are looking for in a man. Read More...

I know I haven’t mentioned Ty much in this blog, but I can’t think of a kid I respect more for how hard he works on the field and just how great of a kid he is. Even though he is in the grade below me, I look up to him more than anyone on the team. Read More...
