Alyssa Murray, a two-time Tewaaraton Award finalist, Kayla Treanor, Syracuse’s all-time goals scored leader (260), and [Katie] Rowan were not only three of the greatest lacrosse players ever at SU, they are three of the best in their sport overall.
The Buffalo Bandits are starting the season off with a win after defeating the San Diego Seals 13-10 in front of the hometown fans. The game was certainly a tale of two halves, the first being a slower offensive game as it ended tied 4-4 before teams worked out their kinks and started putting balls in the back of the net.
The Buffalo Bandits couldn’t have asked for a better finish to their first game of the 2019-20 season. The Bandits scored three times in the final 2:18 to earn a 13-10 win over the San Diego Seals on Saturday at KeyBank Center.
The Bandits, who were swept by the Calgary Roughnecks in last season’s NLL finals, are poised for another emotional game when they open the 2019-20 regular season against the San Diego Seals, featuring former Bishop Timon-St. Jude attackman Connor Fields, on Saturday at 7 p.m. at KeyBank Center.
It’s time @USLacrosse put #Zulberti in the HOF. Do the right thing. Anybody who wants to see Z in the HOF please tweet @USLacrosse and let them know. one of the greatest players of all time who has also made an incredible impact on youth lacrosse as well. #PutZinHOF@CuseMLAX
The Bandits are seeking a return trip to the NLL Finals, where they lost in two games to the Calgary Roughnecks last May. Buffalo brings back a talented group but will have to navigate through some changes to match the success of the 2018-19 season, in which they went 14-4 in the regular season.

I think the number of DI games played in February and the negative trend of attendance at the NCAA Championship Weekend are problems, and their solutions are linked. As opposed to tackling the problems chronologically, examine them from a cause/effect and priority order.
The USILA and the IMLCA leadership boards each voted this week to approve merging the entities, creating a singular, unified organizational structure at the leadership level, executives from each organization confirmed to Inside Lacrosse Wednesday night.

(Rochester, NY) – On a night where the Rochester Knighthawks were celebrating a new era in the National Lacrosse League, the team was unable to find the offensive spark that they needed as the Knighthawks opened their inaugural season with a 14-4 loss to the Georgia Swarm Saturday at Segar & Sciortino Field at The Blue Cross Arena.
Georgia was fueled by the duo of Lyle and Miles Thompson, who erupted for 12 points between the two of them, including a four-goal effort from Lyle.
As the Rochester Knighthawks embark on their inaugural season, it seems as though they’re embarking on something much bigger than they could’ve ever imagined. Not only is this an exciting time for this brand-new franchise, but it’s just as exciting for the community here in Rochester as well.

Joe Alberici started giving a version of the speech that caps off the Army summer boys’ lacrosse camp around eight years ago. He calls it the “Tough Guy Talk.” He’s received more letters and emails in support of the message than he can count. He thinks he’s just saying what the parents are thinking, but with a little more emotion. Some parents have told him they’ve affixed quotes from the talk onto their refrigerators.
Red Raider senior Colin Peers will start his third year on the varsity with 44g-36a after a strong junior year where he posted 36g-22a. As a result he earned Class A All-Tournament, first team All-League (MC-d1) and All-Section Five second team honors.

Over the summer I was having a conversation with a longtime assignor who was working on logistics for a youth, high school and post-collegiate tournament. The officials are always provided a space in the vendor area at this event to talk to people about rules, officiating, the game or just make people aware that officials are human and not just blind robots wearing zebra stripes.
What this assignor wanted was some flyers that they could pass out to people that stopped by the tent. They wanted to try and recruit them to be officials.
The NLL season is almost upon us, and teams are gearing up for what promises to be a year of new horizons. After the San Diego Seals and Philadelphia Wings joined in 2018, the league welcomes the Rochester Knighthawks 2.0 (also the relocated) Halifax Thunderbirds and the New York Riptide to the fold, giving opportunities for more players to make the league.
The Opening Night festivities begin on Saturday with a special pregame red-carpet event from 4:30-5:00 p.m. on the outdoor terrace along the riverside of The Blue Cross Arena. Fans are invited to line up along the red carpet and welcome the Knighthawks players as they make their arrivals. The team will also unveil its new mascot during the event.

Rochester’s roster features a total of 28 players, including 21 on the active roster, while seven others have been assigned to the inactive roster to begin the season.
The 2019-20 roster will see the return of several Bandits veterans including Kevin Brownell, Steve Priolo and Dhane Smith. First-year Bandits highlighting the roster are offseason trade acquisition Doug Buchan and free agent signings Marcus Minichiello and Quinn Powless. Also making the team is Brent Noseworthy, the Bandits’ first-round pick in this year’s NLL Entry Draft.
You probably would regret inviting me to join you at your Thanksgiving table this week. I would be a lousy guest. There I’d sit, waiting for my turn to say what I’m grateful for as everyone’s attention goes around the table, and then… finally, it would be my turn. By the time I’m done giving thanks, your turkey is cold, the gravy has congealed, children are crying, and at least one of your elders has fallen asleep.
Jamieson remains the only Native American to have served as head coach of a Division I men’s lacrosse team. He returned to Cortland, however, not to speak about his own role in lacrosse but about the ancient history of the “Creator’s game.” Jamieson lectured in Sperry Center on Nov. 21 as part of Native American Heritage Month.

Palm Beach, Fla. — For the second consecutive year at the IWLCA President’s Cup, Team USA traveled to Florida to face a team of WPLL stars as they showcased the experimental Olympic rules.
