Sports fans love upsets. At this time of the year March Madness often dominate the headlines with lower seeds knocking out college basketball giants (Mercer!) in the opening rounds of the tournament. In the Canadian Lacrosse League playoff semifinals no such “shockers” occurred last weekend as the top two teams both advanced in highly-contested games.
A weekly series that will track the progress of Pittsburgh athletes at the next level… playing college lacrosse! As Pittsburgh has improved over time, the area has produced more and more high level talent. We are now at the point where tracking Pittsburgh players in college should be a thing. And now it is.
The FIL 2014 World Lacrosse Championships are only a Spring season away, and we’re all extremely excited. National teams around the world are preparing to make the trip to Colorado for two weeks (or more in some cases) in July, and that means a lot of training camps, scrimmages, and quite a bit of fundraising!
When you think of Kansas, what are some of the things that come to mind? The Bible Belt, Bad Weather, Slow Lifestyles, and Lacrosse. One of those things doesn’t quite belong in a traditional sense, but here in Wichita, there are a few devoted fans of the Creator’s game and interest is starting to pick up.

A follow up post to the previous Zen. Lax. Lacrosse. post on doing yoga to open practice. Focusing on letting go can be as important on focusing on achievement.
College lacrosse and accelerometers are finally coming together on a large scale. A study launched at Sacred Heart University is monitoring head impacts with accelerometers for the entire season. Along with the sensor data, the study will utilize neurocognitive measures (tests of thinking and memory), IQ scores, mood assessments, and drug dependency screens to compare to impact data and any diagnosed concussions. Many of these factors have been shown to change after a concussion, and this study will examine how changes are linked to cumulative head forces as well, measured by the helmet sensors.
With the world games on everyone’s mind I’d Like to shift gears a bit an introduce you to some of the players on the Israel Lacrosse Men’s National Team 46-man roster.

Tufts Lacrosse has been crushing it on the field, and at 7-1 the Jumbos are definitely top 10 material for 2014. Tufts lost 15-9 to Stevenson, and only beat Keene State by 1 goal (17-16), but other than that, they have been crushing opponents. To go along with that, Tufts Lacrosse is crushing the video department as well.
We are absolutely loving Garrett Thul right now. The man was a beast at Army, and when he played in the Salt Shakerz tourney a couple years back he was unstoppable. Now, he’s one of 30 guys vying for 23 spots on Team USA, and he’s ripping it up as a rookie in the National Lacrosse League.

Sportscasters, College Presidents, and the even the average man on the street, typically dismissed the idea that college athletes should get paid. A select few saw a new potential reality, but now that Northwestern’s Football Team has been granted the right to unionize, people are starting to approach the topic with more nuance (well, sometimes…) and some deserved gravitas.
Spring is so close here in New England I can almost smell it! West coast readers, get outside on your Monday afternoon and enjoy what you’ve got.

Ever heard of Dude Perfect? It’s basically a group of five guys doing insanely awesome tricks and stunts, filming these antics, and posting them to YouTube. But maybe antics isn’t the right word, because the tricks Dude Perfect pulls off are extremely impressive, and these five friends have amassed quite a following on following on YouTube – over 2.4 million subscribers to be exact. And hey, they just used a lacrosse goalie stick in one of their recent videos, Nerf Sports Edition.
