Virginia vs. Syracuse is always one of of the games I circle on the calendar every season. The teams are perennial powerhouses in lacrosse, and their matchup is always entertaining. This year the game has more meaning with Syracuse joining the ACC, making it the first conference game between the Cavaliers and the Orange. There’s no other way to describe this one besides epic.

The D1 NCAA Lacrosse season is well underway, and every single D1 program has played at least one game. Some teams have played as many as four games already, and we’ve got a couple of undefeated squads looking strong early. It’s time to run through the D1 scene and see where things stand.
The Virginia Cavaliers men’s lacrosse team won their third game of the year (in their third one goal game of the year), topping Drexel 11-10. It’s hard to call a team battle tested this early in the year, but if anyone has the right to do so, it’s UVA.
The NCAA D1 season is now well underway, and it’s only February. Instead of previewing these last few teams, we’ll talk about their 2014 seasons so far, assuming they’ve played games… We narrow down the alphabetical list with the Virginia Cavaliers, located in Charlottesville, VA. The Cavs are 3-0 right now, and each of their games have been decided by one goal. It’s clearly going to be a tight year for UVA.
UNC edged Johns Hopkins 10-9 in OT in one semifinal, and Virginia took down Syracuse 12-10 in the other semifinal. This was the first year where semifinal games were played at neutral sites. Coincidence? Probably, but a neat historical note either way. This was also the first time two schools from the same conference faced off for a D1 title.
The College Lacrosse season is upon us, and while every team out there hasn’t played a game yet (NCAA D3 NESCAC teams don’t start practice for 5 more days), plenty of teams have seen game action, and others are putting up solid preseason video. That means one thing: It’s time for a Video Explosion!
Craig Chase took in the season opener for Loyola and Virginia at UVA’s Klockner Stadium last night. Virginia emerged with a 14-13 OT win over the Hounds, and James Pannell scored the game winner (one of four goals on the night for Pannell).
Peter Tumbas is at the IMLCA Coaches’ Convention in Baltimore, MD this weekend and will be reporting on the convention scene later in the coming week. For now, enjoy some photos of the upcoming gear for college teams in 2014 that is on display.
It’s only fall ball, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited for some excellent fall ball video! BHSVideoDad is back at it, and covers the big boys from D1 as they play a fall event in Kezar Stadium at the 2013 Fall Classic in San Francisco, CA.
Johns Hopkins defeated Virginia 9-8 (in overtime) in the 1980 Division 1 Men’s Lacrosse national championship game. The game was played at Cornell University in front of over 10,000 fans. Jeff Harris scored the OT game winner for Hop, and the goal was assisted by Jim Bidne. This was Hopkins’ third straight national title in men’s lacrosse.
Wyatt Melzer played lacrosse at Virginia, and after graduating he wasn’t exactly sure what he was going to do with his life. Through an alumni connection he got hooked up with Harlem Lacrosse & Leadership, and it all took off from there.
Ever wonder what it’s like to be a D1 lacrosse player over the Summer? We check in with James Pannell, who just finished up his freshman year at Virginia, to see what these guys do, and it’s a lot of work, or just some well deserved pool time!
It’s now or never for the Virginia Cavaliers. Will they be able to turn things around in time for the tournament? Or is this a team prepping for 2014 already?
