The USCGA is the smallest US service academy, and we’re thrilled to have them playing D3 lacrosse next year!

I brought Joe Williams of Throne of String to Prague for the 2014 Ales Hrebesky Memorial for two reasons: 1) he’s an awesome guy, good friend, and greasy box lacrosse player. 2) He makes videos the likes of which I want to someday make, and I knew he’d deliver with an insane Praha Experience video.

Is This NCAA Lacrosse Tournament Field Serious?

In the spirit of “Is this D1 lacrosse poll serious?”, I’ll be taking a look at the NCAA D1 Lacrosse Tournament teams and asking whether or not they were ranked correctly. Was Duke really deserving of the #1 seed? Should a non-AQ Ivy team really have made it in to the tourney over Hofstra? Let’s take a look and see if this selection group is serious!

Gait Lacrosse took care of us and helped us get over to Prague for the Ales Hrebesky Memorial international box lacrosse tournament, and while the vast majority of my time was spent watching, filming, and playing box lacrosse, I also got out to see Prague for almost a full day.

Few people are aware that the Vermont Voyageurs are holding training camp this weekend. Only a few more people even know who the Vermont Voyageurs are, but I’m hoping that this lack of knowledge fades, because these guys represent the future of US box lacrosse.

Video: Welcome To The Thompson Show!

Albany goes down 4-0 to Stony Brook, and then the Thompsons start scoring and things change quickly. We go from upset alert to straight up battle, with #1 seed Albany eventually winning out. You want behind the back goals? You want awesome dodges and passing? You want a game that goes to OT where the Danes win 17-16 and need a last second goal just to make it to OT?

Deadspin Loves Lacrosse “Trend” Spotting

0 - Published May 2, 2014 by in Featured, High School

The notion that the author, Dave McKenna, puts out there is summed up thusly:

There is a new trend amongst private school parents to hold their kids back a grade for sports, especially lacrosse, in the DC metro area. This means rich lacrosse parents are holding their kids back solely for sports. It’s cheating and it’s not fair.

This is incredibly lazy reporting and storytelling.
