Providing a weekly rundown of the most interesting things that recently happened in the whole wide world of lacrosse, Crosse Clicks is to the lacrosse enthusiast as SparkNotes is to the above-average student!
Welcome back to another exciting week of lacrosse in NYC. Tottenville remains as the only unbeaten team left in the “A” division. Meanwhile Eagle is 6-0 over in the B with a scare against Midwood winning 9-8. We are in full swing and all the public schools in NYC are going on spring break. Most teams will still host practice over break while others will look to scrimmage other clubs.
Never let someone tell you that playing lacrosse is impossible. It IS possible, no matter what obstacles stand in your way. If you have a physical disability, you can play. If you don’t have a great stick, you can play. Heck, you don’t even need a real field to play the game!
The Shakerz are amped about the 4th Annual Salt Shakerz Invitational & their new website at www.laxoften.com! The SSZ Invy has been growing over the last few years and provides an opportunity for Shakerz around the country to get back to NYC. The event will be held on June 28th & 29th, 2014, and tourney spots are already going quickly!
The vast majority of rivalries involved two sides, but every once in a while, you find a three-way rivalry that really works. It’s rare, but special, and I’m happy to say that I played a small part in a great one. The Little Three consists of Amherst College, Wesleyan University, and Williams College. While all three of these schools play in the NESCAC, the three-way rivalry is alive and well at each institution.
The FIL 2014 World Lacrosse Championships are only a short Spring season away, and 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! We have also learned that lacrosse is headed to the World Games in 2017!
UPDATE: We have a winner, and there can only be one! …. It’s time for the Big Dance. Fill out your bracket and join the LaxAllStars league for a chance to win a ton of great prizes!
Israel Premier League teams Ashkelon and Netanya traveled to Ramla to play in an exhibition to Grow The Game and introduce lacrosse to a new audience.
Ranking D1 lacrosse teams is tough. Last week we had an easy criticism to make and could say Cornell should be #1, by virtue of them being undefeated. Then they lost to Harvard. Now it’s fair to give that coveted (but somewhat meaningless) #1 spot to Loyola free and clear. After that, the rankings get a little more confusing… let’s see if they’re serious or not!
Andrew Suitor or the Minnesota Swarm wore the name of a lifelong fan who lost her life in the off-season. The link between lacrosse players and their fans couldn’t be any closer.
Welcome to Yinzers at the Next Level, 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!
One of the most famous rivalries in all of college sports takes place inside the state of North Carolina. Neighbors, Duke University and the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill are two schools who just don’t get along, on or off the field.
It’s Rivalry Week here at LaxAllStars, with big NCAA Division I rivalry games between teams such as Maryland and Johns Hopkins as well as Michigan and Ohio State. Connor gave us the rundown on some of the NCAA’s biggest college lacrosse rivalries, and most MCLA rivalry games are still a week or two away, but let’s take a look at some of the MCLA’s best rivalries.
Spring lacrosse is here, and you know what they say about Spring… spring showers bring another waxed mesh company. Kidding aside, I’ve spent the past few weeks trying out some of Barrier Waxed Mesh and so far I’m liking what I see.
That’s right, it’s Rivalry Week on LAS! We’re getting all jazzed up for the Hopkins – Maryland game, and we’re going to be taking in the OSU – Michigan game LIVE. But before we get into all that (keep your eyes peeled for rivalry posts all week), we’re going to run down the list of some top notch college lacrosse rivalries!
