Drew Jenkins grew up in affluent Montclair, New Jersey. Jenkins dreamed of playing for Syracuse, but not because he grew up watching quarterback Donovan McNabb or wanted to follow in New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony’s footsteps. Jenkins wanted to play lacrosse for the Orange, a program as successful as Kentucky Wildcats basketball or Ohio State football. It is the alma mater of Jim Brown. Yes, that Jim Brown — perhaps the greatest running back of all time and widely considered the greatest player to pick up a lacrosse stick.
"She's matured incredibly and is a true leader amongst this team. She brings a lot to the table this year having gone through a lot last year and making mistakes and recovering from those mistakes,'' he said. "And having that opportunity to come back, I think, has been one of those things that helps shape you as a person. And she's become an incredible young lady.''

“I got x-rays for a broken rib and then they came up clean. So it’s either contused but honestly, I think it’s still broken,” Levy said. “Cause after the last game the doctor came in and the trainers, they did one of the tests with that metal tool that they bang and it vibrates and the pain just shot right through my ribs.”

During the 2015 IMLCA convention, we invited several DI coaches to our studio to discuss topics relevant to their teams and to the national conversation. With declining attendance numbers, the Final Four has become a point of contention in the sport. Should it stay the same? Should it be changed? Should we shake up the whole playoff structure, or the whole season? There is a lot to debate, and a lot of strong points from all sides. (Video 8:22)
Teammates mobbed LaFayette attackman Percy Booth after his goal two minutes into overtime knocked No. 3-seed Westhill out of the Class C sectional playoffs and moved the No. 6 Lancers into Thursday's semifinals.
The reminder at halftime was simple. The execution from then on was exquisite.

It’s been six seasons since Midlakes beat Palmyra-Macedon in boys lacrosse, so maybe the Screaming Eagles are due. If they are, it will have to wait until next spring because Pal-Mac rolled to a 16-3 win over the Screaming Eagles on Monday in a Section V Class C tournament game at Pal-Mac.
Lauren Martuscello scored with 12 seconds left in regulation to snap a 9-9 tie and lift second-seeded Shaker to a 10-9 win over No. 5 Bethlehem in a Section II Class A girls' lacrosse semifinal-round game Tuesday afternoon at Shaker.

A sectional lacrosse title has eluded the Horseheads High School boys program for 18 years, but expectations are high for this year's team heading into the Section 4 Class B final against familiar foe Vestal.
At the head of the class, two players are scoring in unique ways for Horseheads. Ian Cook and Garrette Briggs have been dominating the opposition all season long. Together, they lead a senior class who's looking to make history and bring home a championship-something the program hasn't done in nearly 20 years.
Hilbert College head coach Rick Schunke has released the dates for the 2016 men's summer lacrosse camp. The Hawks invite boys in grades 8 through 12 to attend the week-long camp which will be held July 24 through July 28.
Syracuse attacker Halle Majorana posted a team-high six points (three goals, three assists), including the game-winning feed off a dodge in from the left side, in a 12-11 overtime win over previously unbeaten USC to send Syracuse back to the final four and earn Epoch/Lacrosse Magazine Player of the Week honors.
While Maryland has defeated Syracuse by a combined 104-74 score in the past four years – with the Orange breaking into double-digit scoring just four times – the final results do not indicate the proximity in performances between Taylor Cummings, the Terps' two-time Tewaaraton winner, and Kayla Treanor.
The U.S. Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association recently announced that former Hobart College Head Lacrosse Coach Dave Urick will be one of four legends of the game featured on the sideline at the 75th annual USILA/Nike North-South All-Star Games on Friday, May 27 at Cabrini College in Radnor, Pa.
No. 4 seed Syracuse (19-5, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) runs into a familiar foe in the national semifinal on Friday when defending champion and No. 1-seeded Maryland (21-0, 5-0 Big Ten) is on the opposing sideline. Maryland has ended Syracuse’s season the last three years, each time just short of the national championship.
Quincey Zimmerman accounted for three goals and three assists to help lead third-seeded South Jefferson to a 21-9 victory over No. 6 Jordan-Elbridge during a Section 3 Class C quarterfinal game Monday.

Will eye black make you an All American? Of course not. However, we really believe it should be in every players equipment bag because of its proven effectiveness during mid day sun games and under the light night battles. Our focus with this brand is to provide players with the very best equipment possible that will help them perform better and play more confident lacrosse. We knew we wanted to offer players not just an eye black option but the very best.

To help mark the 1000th game in program history, over the few weeks the LaFayette Lacrosse Alumni Association is posting excepts from an article written by Coach Carl ‘Ket’ Weist, the first lacrosse coach at LaFayette High School.
The article chronicles Coach Weist’s own early personal experiences in lacrosse, why he felt the need to start a lacrosse team at the school, and some of the unique characters critical to the genesis of what is now arguably the nation’s smallest “Big Time” high school lacrosse team. Still working at age 82 and living in Florida, Coach Weist remains active in his community and maintains contact with a number of his former players.
A little shuffling of the line as we head into the sectional playoff week. J-D moves back up to No. 2 after Baldwinsville dropped its final game at Fayetteville-Manlius. And the Hornets jump up to No. 6.
Syracuse women's lacrosse coach Gary Gait is taking his team to its fifth straight Division I NCAA Tournament Final Four this weekend. That's an impressive track record for any program, but Gait knows there's one more level to reach before claiming status as one of the elite squads in the country.
The nationally top-ranked SUNY Cortland women's lacrosse team brings its 21-0 record and 40-game winning streak to the NCAA Div. III "final four" this weekend at Talen Energy Stadium in Philadelphia, Pa. The Red Dragons face fifth-ranked Middlebury College (20-1) on Saturday at 12 p.m. in the first semifinal of the day.
All four teams played difficult schedules to reach this point, but Syracuse might be the most game-ready team remaining. The last eight games for Syracuse came against NCAA tournament teams with five of those games coming against seeded teams, and a sixth (Stony Brook) against a team that very well could have been seeded.
No. 4 seed Syracuse (19-5, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) made its fourth consecutive national semifinals after slipping past Southern California in the quarterfinals. Now, it takes on undefeated No. 1 seed Maryland (21-0, 5-0 Big Ten) on Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, Pennsylvania, with a trip to the national championship game on the line.
Here are three things SU head coach Gary Gait said on the NCAA coaches teleconference on Monday:
The first chapter of Ralph Ellison’s 1952 novel Invisible Man has also been published as a stand-alone short story under the title “Battle Royal.” It depicts an old-fashioned smoker, where the wealthy, white men of the community gather for an evening of entertainment that is both racist and sexist. While that might sound kind of dark and somber for an introduction to this week’s Road Trip Dad piece, it kind of describes what I was picturing when I attended my first-ever Sectional boys’ lacrosse meeting this past week . . .
While most youth lacrosse is wrapping up the regular season, many local kids are still practicing. On Sunday some lacrosse players had a chance to practice with four-time All American's Rob Pannell, and Max Seibald at Binghamton High school.
Buffalo and Saskatchewan swept their respective divisional finals will meet in a best-of-three series for the National Lacrosse League Champions Cup. Game one of the series will be held next Saturday at Buffalo.
Junior Kristen Ohberg (Brewster) tallied a game-high seven points on six goals and one assist to lead the nationally top-ranked Cortland women's lacrosse team to an 18-2 victory versus Catholic University Sunday afternoon in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Div. III Women's Lacrosse Tournament.
With the win, the Red Dragons improved to 21-0 on the season and extended their home winning streak to 78 consecutive games and overall winning streak to 40 straight games. Cortland advanced to the national semifinals for the sixth season in a row and faces Middlebury College on Saturday at Talen Energy Field in Chester, Pa., in a rematch of last year's semifinals .
The St. Lawrence University Men's Lacrosse team limited the Tufts University scoring runs in the first half but a run of seven out of eight goals from the end of the second quarter through the third quarter for the Jumbos led to a 23-12 loss for the Saints ending a record breaking year in the semifinal game of the NCAA Division III Tournament Sunday afternoon on Bello Field in Medford, Massachusetts.
No matter how bad it got when the Christian Brothers Academy boys lacrosse team lost, 15-7, at Skaneateles on May 11, it knew that things would matter more if the two sides would have a rematch in the Section III Class C playoffs.
And that’s exactly what’s going to happen, with the no. 5 seed Brothers going back to Hyatt Stadium to face the no. 4 seed Lakers in the sectional quarterfinals Tuesday night after last Saturday’s opening-round games where CBA dusted off no. 12 seed Lowville 21-2 and Skaneateles handled no. 13 seed Holland Patent 23-3.
If the Marcellus girls lacrosse team felt any doubts about its abilities or resilience, those feelings are long gone, even if its good work in the regular season didn’t reflect itself in the eventual Section III Class C playoff bracket.
On a gray Saturday morning, the Cazenovia girls lacrosse team put its season on the line when it hosted General Brown at the Sean Googin Sports Complex during the opening round of the Section III Class C playoffs.
Syracuse University Athletics is featured prominently in Time Warner Cable SportsChannel's (TWCSC) upcoming programming schedule. The station will air two Orange specials multiple times on channel 323 throughout the state of New York from now until June 5.
The first is the Syracuse University Men's Lacrosse Centennial Celebration, presented by Sedgwick Business Interiors and the 1979 Syracuse men's lacrosse team in memory of David Mulherin.
In front of a typically electric crowd in Banditland, the Buffalo Bandits defeated the New England Black Wolves 20-15 in Game 2 of the East Division Finals at First Niagara Center. With the victory, the Bandits clinched a spot in the Champion’s Cup Finals and moved one step closer to adding a fifth championship to the organization’s storied history.
#4 Syracuse is returning to championship weekend for the fifth straight year after defeating No. 5 USC, 12-11, in overtime in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Women's Lacrosse Tournament. Graduate student Allie Murray made a save with nine seconds left in regulation to keep the game tied, and senior Kelly Cross tallied the game winner in the first extra session to punch the Orange's ticket to the national semifinals.
Syracuse’s Halle Majorana was parallel with the Southern California goal on the left side of the field. It’s at that spot on the field that she had already racked up five points with a barrage of goals and assists in the second half.
With time winding down in the first overtime period, Kelly Cross cut across down the middle of the field. Majorana lofted the pass to her and she slammed it in past goalie Gussie Johns. Syracuse had won the game, 12-11, with 21.2 seconds left in overtime.
The eighth-seeded Syracuse men's lacrosse team was unable to overcome its four-goal halftime deficit, falling to top-seeded Maryland by the final score of 13-7 at Brown University in the NCAA quarterfinals.
Senior attackman Logan Thomas (Liverpool/Onondaga C.C.) registered three points to lead the second-ranked and top-seeded Le Moyne College men's lacrosse team back to the NCAA Division II National Championship game as the Dolphins recorded an 8-4 victory over third-ranked and second-seeded Merrimack College in the NCAA Semifinals on Saturday afternoon at Ted Grant Field.
The nationally top-ranked Cortland women's lacrosse team closed the first half with a 6-0 run to break open a tight game and went onto a 21-7 victory versus Pomona-Pitzer Saturday afternoon in the third round of the NCAA Div. III Women's Lacrosse Tournament. The Red Dragons improved to 20-0 and advanced to the regional final to face the winner of Springfield versus Catholic on Sunday at 1 p.m., while the Sagehens finished their season at 16-4.
The College at Brockport women's lacrosse team fell in the National Collegiate Athletic Conference Regional Semifinal to Franklin and Marshall College in heartbreaking fashion. The Golden Eagles scored four unanswered goals in the second half to erase a four-goal deficit but fell short 11-9.
The St. John Fisher College women's lacrosse team saw its season come to a close as the Cardinals rally came up short, falling 12-9 to host Middlebury College in the NCAA Division III Regional Quarterfinals Saturday afternoon.
Sixth-seeded Jordan-Elbridge girls lacrosse defeated No. 11 Cortland 15-9 Saturday at Jordan-Elbridge High School in Round 1 of the Section III, Class C playoffs. With the win, the Eagles improve to 11-6 and earn a date with third-seeded South Jefferson in the quarterfinals on Tuesday.

A trip to Philadelphia and a spot in the national championship game is on the line Saturday at noon as Le Moyne and Merrimack clash at Ted Grant Field. The winner will advance to face either Limestone or Tampa on Sunday, May 29th at Lincoln Financial Field. The game will be streamed live on NCAA.com and live stats will be available through the NCAA Gamecenter.
The Cardinals (17-3) will take on the host Panthers (18-1) at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday. The winner of the Fisher/Middlebury game will play either Amherst College or Gettysburg College at 1 p.m. on Sunday with the winner advancing to Philadelphia for the national semifinals the following week.

SLU (18-2 overall) is a national semifinalist for the first time since 1979, when the tournament combined Division’s II and III in the same field. That season the Saints lost a semifinal, but were the only Division III team to make the field.
"For those who aren't familiar with faceoffs in lacrosse, think of it as a game of rock paper scissors," said Victor coach Jim Andre. "T.D. is always preparing that if someone throws rock, he'll throw paper, and he makes those decisions in a split second."
The road to the four versus five matchup in the Section II Class A girls lacrosse tournament between No. 4 Saratoga Springs and No. 5 Shenendehowa wasn’t decided by the usual standards — Bethlehem, Saratoga Springs and Shenendehowa all had their names pulled out of a hat to determine seeds three through six after an exhaustion of all tiebreakers — but both were more than familiar with their opponent, and came ready to play.
Syracuse men's lacrosse graduate student transfer attack Nick Piroli talks with Cuse TV's Brian Higgins about returning to his previous home, Brown, for Saturday's NCAA Tournament quarterfinal game vs. Maryland.
In a role that traditional power Syracuse rarely, if ever, gets to try out, Desko is milking the underdog's spot headed into Saturday's noon showdown against Maryland in a NCAA Tournament quarterfinal game in Providence.
Sergio Salcido sat alone on the Carrier Dome steps crying. Tears rushed down his cheeks as he broke down.
Earlier that day, in the fall of 2012, he heard a pop during a routine drill in practice. He crumpled to the ground and flipped the ball to a teammate. But then he got up, circled to the back of the line and tried to play through the pain. He didn’t know what it meant but his aching knee was swelling up.
Less than a week removed from a dominating Game 1 road victory over the New England Black Wolves, the Buffalo Bandits will return home Saturday night looking to replicate their most recent performance and clinch a spot in the Champion’s Cup Finals.
Sure, I can move my feet, and I can do it faster than some. And I guess I’ve got a relatively intelligent sense of the field after seeing the game played roughly two billion times by ten billion players with an infinite catalog of different styles and methods. But when it all comes down to it, over the past two years, when push comes to shove and it’s time to put the biscuit in the basket, I’ve gotta give it up to the same stick I’ve been using since the summer of 2014.
The 2016 BRINE Northstar Invitational, one of the nation’s premier recruiting and development experiences, will return for its fifth consecutive year to the Northwood School in historic Lake Placid. The Northstar Invitational combines concentrated talent, carefully engineered on-field sessions, college recruiting exposure, and high quality lacrosse competition.
"It was tough to watch, seeing a team just hold the ball,'' Barber said earlier this week. "I mean, a 6-5 game in Division I college lacrosse isn't what you want to see. Up-tempo's the game the fans want to see.''
And largely because of anti-stalling rules spurred by that game, that's the sport college lacrosse fans get to watch now.
In the few moments of downtime he had earlier this week, Maryland’s Dylan Maltz sent a few text messages and Snapchats to his old friends and former teammates on the Syracuse men’s lacrosse team. They will be his enemies on Saturday when the top-seeded Terrapins meet the No. 8 Orange in an NCAA tournament quarterfinal in Providence, R.I., but Maltz has found comfort with his past with the school he grew up rooting for, the school where his family is entrenched with the men’s lacrosse program.
Long-time Hampden-Sydney head coach Ray Rostan, 10-time NCAA champion Dave Urick, former Virginia Military Institute head coach Doug Bartlett, as well as former coach, athletic director and commissioner Gene Corrigan will all be in attendance as legends of the game to help celebrate the 75th annual all-star contests.
In the final game of the 2015 Major League Lacrosse season, Ned Crotty was wearing a black No. 22 Lizards jersey, aiming to defeat his former team, the team that drafted him out of Duke University, the Rochester Rattlers. His goal nearly seven minutes into the opening quarter got the Lizards on the scoreboard for the first time, slicing a two-goal deficit to one.
As expected, defending Section III champions Jamesville-DeWitt and Cazenovia earned the top seeds in this year's Class B and C boys lacrosse tournaments. Baldwinsville joined that group, being awarded the No. 1 spot in the Class A playoffs at tonight's seeding meeting at Fayetteville-Manlius High School.

The 2016 tournaments have been seeded and the schedules are set. VICTOR (Class A) with a record of 16-0 is the top of Class A and will defend their 2015 Championship (in Class B). PITTSFORD, PENFIELD and FAIRPORT took positions two, three and four. All nine teams play with Rush-Henrietta at Hilton playing in an out bracket game on Saturday. The quarter final contests will be at the home field of the higher seeded team on Tuesday.
The seeding for the Section Five Girl's Tournament comes directly from the laxpower.com website. Laxpower was created, in part, by Dr. Larry Feldman in 1997, who spent over thirty years in aerospace engineering and computer science and is a retired Lt. Colonel in the Air Force Reserves. He created the "power ratings" system to calculate how different teams relate to each other on national level. All 2,980 teams across the nation are rated against each other and given a rating.
Emily Keesling registered seven points to lead top-ranked and top-seeded Adelphi University to a 13-4 win over the second-ranked and second-seeded Le Moyne College women's lacrosse team on Thursday afternoon in the NCAA Semifinals at Metropolitan State University of Denver's Regency Athletic Complex.
St. Joe’s lacrosse goalie Cameron Carpenter has been turning heads all season for the Marauders. It has nothing to do with the balls he has saved. Instead, Carpenter has become known as the goalkeeper who can score. (This story is worth the commercial auto-plays)
Playing in the shadow of her older sister for years, Homer girls lacrosse player Olivia Porter has finally distanced herself from her sibling in the record books. The senior midfielder notched her 201st career goal last week in a road game against Tully, becoming the first lacrosse player in school history - boys or girls - to surpass 200 scores.
It’s been a steady climb upward since a two-win spring in 2013. Under the guidance of head coach Corey Foster, the Blue Devils have hit double-figure wins the last two springs, capped Wednesday with a 12-2 Finger Lakes triumph over Newark.
Craig Gerhardt piled up two goals and three assists. Conner Fingar and Tate Stewart each scored three times. Ben Emerson provided a goal and assist. Austin Blumbergs set up two goals. Nick Griffin and Brandon Smith fired in one goal. Sean Emerson notched one assist.
In less than two weeks, Section II will crown new girls’ lacrosse champions.
But if seeds hold true to Wednesday’s slotting of the teams, this year’s title game celebrations will look very familiar to the ones from last year. Two of the three No. 1 seeds for this year’s tournaments are their classification’s defending champion.
Potentially, two of the more interesting games this Saturday pit East Coast powerhouses against up-and-comers from the Western half of the United States.
Cortland State, the defending national champions and top-ranked team coming into the tournament, absolutely crushed Keene State in its opener, 17-1. The Red Dragons now face the West Coast's best team, Pomona-Pitzer, which beat Chapman for the second time in eight days to advance.
For a year or two now, it hasn’t been much of a secret that Corning’s Devon Sullivan has been eyeing a future with national lacrosse power Syracuse University.
On Thursday, Sullivan finally made it official, signing a letter of commitment to attend Syracuse and play lacrosse for the school's NCAA Division I juggernaut.
Practice had ended in the Carrier Dome and most of Syracuse’s players filed off the field, putting on their sneakers and talking about weekend plans and finals. But the conversations were pierced by a whistle.
Dozens of former Baldwinsville girls lacrosse players returned for last Wednesday’s regular-season finale against Brighton, joining the current team to pay tribute to retiring head coach Doug Rowe. The Bees gave them a happy result, too, defeating the Barons 9-8.
No one could pretend that the Baldwinsville girls lacrosse team’s regular-season finale last Wednesday against Section V power Brighton was just another match.
The meeting to seed teams in this year's Section III girls lacrosse tournament was a lot shorter than past meetings have been. Seedings for Class A, B and C playoffs were made using Laxpower.com ratings, which rely heavily on strength of schedule, for the first time in Section III.
Le Moyne led 6-0 in the second quarter of Saturday's NCAA quarterfinal against NYIT and visions of a second consecutive NCAA semifinal seemed all too real. Still, Coach Mike Daly knew the game wasn't over.
"We know it's a game of runs, we made ours in the second quarter," Daly said. "We knew they were going to make one."
Wednesday, Treanor was named a first-team All-American for the fourth straight season.
That made the Niskayuna native just the fifth Syracuse athlete to ever accomplish that feat. The group includes wrestler Gene Mills, swimmers Liz Vilbert and Miroslav Vucetic and men's lacrosse player Mike Powell.
I was recently reading an article in Paste Magazine where the author broke down some of the best places to watch a live performance. It was a good list that talked about the top 40 venues and uncovered a glaring recurring theme that seemed to thread it all together. Although this particular list was genre specific (folk) each venue on the list had a strong historical component and a unique vibe.
After reading this I decided it might be an interesting idea to talk about my favorite places to play lacrosse. Now, please keep in mind that this group is totally subjective and is not a list of the “best” places but simply my personal favorite fields.
While the Bandits' travel itinerary to New England read like a boys' weekend out, it was all business. The schedule, planned by Scott Loffler, Bandits director of lacrosse operations, was earmarked with meeting times, logistics, location of events and departure times. It all came off flawlessly, centered around the Bandits 15-10 victory Monday night in Game 1 of the NLL’s Eastern Division Final inside Mohegan Sun Arena.
While time, and personnel changes, may alter the equation, for now the Cicero-North Syracuse girls lacrosse team is several steps ahead of its neighbors from Liverpool. In their second of two regular-season encounters Tuesday night at Bragman Stadium, the state Class A no. 14-ranked Northstars used a steady, relentless attack to wear down the Warriors and prevail 16-7 to finish its regular season at 11-5.
