from Dan Witmer / JustLacrosse Upstate
No offense, but I think it’s refreshing to know that not every high school lacrosse coach in New York is a former PE major from Cortland State.

Have you heard the one about the Hall of Fame high school lacrosse coach who was an art teacher that had played college baseball?

from Syracuse Athletics
Over the past month, Syracuse University has successfully demonstrated to the New York State Department of Health that the COVID prevention protocols in place to support safe operations of the Syracuse Stadium are comprehensive and effective. For that reason, we are happy to announce that NYS has approved our request to allow a limited number of fans from the general public to attend the women's lacrosse game vs. Virginia on Saturday, April 10 and the men's lacrosse game vs. North Carolina on Saturday, April 17.

Midway through the 2021 season, No. 2 Syracuse sits at 6-1 with its only defeat coming in a thrashing at the hands of No. 1 North Carolina on Saturday.

from Dan Witmer / JustLacrosse Upstate
If you’ve heard about the 11-year old boy in Colorado handing out flowers to employees at some King Soopers grocery stores the day after the shooting in Boulder, I want you to know that that’s my cousin’s son. JJ is one special kid, and I couldn’t be more proud of him or his mom, Jody.

from The Daily Orange
Before Rob Kavovit and Ric Beardsley were teammates at Syracuse, they were high school rivals in Yorktown, New York.

St. Lawrence immediately made noise in the DIII landscape with a debut win over Saint John Fisher.

from US Lacrosse Magazine
Garrett Thul took a seat on the couch in his living room not knowing the sheer elation he was about to experience.

It was Feb. 21, and Thul’s Army men’s lacrosse team faced off against a familiar foe in Syracuse at the Carrier Dome. Thul battle the Orange five times in his career and knew how important the game was to this edition of the Black Knights.

Monday March 22 11:15AM
from Dan Witmer / JustLacrosse Upstate
The call came on a Friday night just over a week ago.

It was my son Eric calling from Denver. He asked, “Hey Old Man, what are you doing on Sunday?”

from Inside Lacrosse
Anish Shroff and Paul Carcaterra called the game for the ACC Network and spoke frequently of Kavovit, Carcaterra’s best friend growing up together and playing lacrosse at Yorktown (N.Y.) before becoming roommates while running on the same attack line at ’Cuse. At the start of the fourth quarter, Carcaterra shared a story that truly shines a light on the meaning of the term “Medicine Game.”

from The Daily Orange
In seventh grade, Emma Ward stepped on the football field for the last time. Her travel football career ended after the 12-year-old earned a spot on the Long Island Top Guns varsity travel lacrosse team.

from Inside Lacrosse
Army #4, Syracuse #5.

While there’s a lot to sort out, here is one thing everyone can root for: The likes of Army, Navy, Hofstra and others stuck in virus-related pauses to emerge soon and squeeze in a full second half of their respective schedules.

Saturday March 20 9:45AM
from Syracuse Athletics
As the Syracuse Orange prepare to host Holy Cross in the Dome on Sataurday, March 20 (12 p.m., ACC Network), fans can get ready for the game by checking out the Digital Game Program. This Q&A with Jamie Trimboli appears in this week's program.

With the win, Utica improves to 2-0 on the season, marking the first time since 2014 that the Pioneers have gotten off to a 2-0 start. UC will look to carry its momentum into a showdown at Morrisville State on Wednesday. Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m.

It’s been more than a year since Sidney Hall and her Le Moyne College teammates played their last lacrosse game after the 2020 season was suddenly halted because of the coronavirus pandemic.

from the Albany Times Union
The University at Albany women’s lacrosse team hasn’t played America East rival Stony Brook in almost two years entering their matchup at 5 p.m. Saturday on Long Island.

That might be a good thing, considering the fifth-ranked Seawolves have won their past 14 meetings with the Great Danes, most recently a 21-7 rout in the conference title game on May 4, 2019.

from University of Rochester Athletics
Hass Diallo appreciated the competitiveness of lacrosse as a sport and she worked hard to excel. She played with the Frederick Douglass Academy and with a club team, Harlem Lacrosse, which took her to tournaments in Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

from US Lacrosse
