Welcome to the day of days in D3 lacrosse! It’s Tufts Vs Salisbury for the third time ever in a title game, and each team has a historic win over the other, but that’s in the past! Today, we get to see what 2014 has in store for us, and it promises to be excellent.
Saturday afternoon, in game 1 of the Final Four, the Duke University Blue Devils held off the Denver Pioneers to send them back to the National Championship game for back-to-back seasons.
Welcome to Championship Weekend! We’ll have photos from the games, photos from the day’s events and scene, and video wherever relevant. Also, be on the lookout for notes from Chris Rosenthall. He’s taking his professional talents to the college game this weekend!
We’re set up to see FIVE great games this weekend for NCAA Championship Weekend (two D1 semis, the D2 final, D3 final, and D1 final), and as usual, long stick midfielders will play a huge part. While there may not be a CJ Costabile of 2014 (then again, there may be!), these guys will play a huge role in how the games turn out.
Upset-minded Long Island University-Post will try to end their surprise post-season run with a victory in the NCAA Division II National Championship when they face second-ranked Limestone College on Sunday.
The Thompson Trio’s incredible run may have ended last weekend against Notre Dame, but the three Albany attackmen certainly have inspired a lot of players with their play. And to think, they became that good at lacrosse from hours of hard work spent playing in the back yard, rather than a fancy summer or recruiting camp.
The United States Coast Guard Academy, located in New London, CT, will be transitioning from MCLA D2 to NCAA D3 in 2015. The USCGA lacrosse program has a long history of success, but this current group is taking things to the next level, both on the field and off of it. Commander Sean Cross has been helping the team with promotion over the last couple of MCLA seasons, and he has provided us with a great look into the program’s pending transition to the D3 level.
It’s that wonderful time of the year where lacrosse video REALLY means something! The games are all one and done, and in each division, there can be only champ. Who’s bringing home the hardware? We shall know quite soon!
In the end, I can still understand rewarding the “good” teams with more All-Americans. But here is the thrust of my thought process right now: I simply don’t believe that any one team in the Top 20 of D3 is really 11 or 12 All Americans better than someone only a handful of spots behind them.
Reliving the Notre Dame Albany NCAA D1 lacrosse quarterfinal game is going to be a Summer past time for many people, and this is how they can do it. Simply amazing.
This past Sunday the Denver University Pioneers blew the doors of the Drexel Dragons, 15-6 in Delaware Stadium, Newark, DE.
This past Sunday the Duke University Blue Devils overpowered the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays, 19-11 in Delaware Stadium, Newark, DE. Duke led the game in shots 44 to 35. Although Hopkins led in the saves column, 10 to 4, goaltender Eric Schnieder could only do so much for the Blue Jays as he was faced with a flurry of attempts by the Duke offense.
We get a lot of good photos from our photographer crew, but our Director of Photography, Tommy Gilligan, really pulled out all the stops this weekend with this shot!
If you didn’t catch Notre Dame’s insane comeback on Saturday to defeat Albany in OT, you need to drop everything, go to ESPN3 right now, and spend two and a half hours watching one of the best NCAA D1 tournament games of all-time. Do you think I’m crazy for saying that? Watch the game, then […]
A decade ago, in 2004, the Navy men’s lacrosse team made an epic run to the Final Four, and then in front of the whole nation, the Midshipmen did the unthinkable, winning their semifinal game, and matching up with Syracuse on Memorial Day.
