Spring is finally in the air in most parts of the Northeast, and that’s great for people who live there. But what about the weather in Utah, where the MCLA Lacrosse Action is flying hot and heavy? Well, judging by all the tights that Utah players can be seen wearing, I’d say it’s still cold. Or those guys just really love tights. As a tights appreciator myself, I can see where they’re coming from.
on April 22nd, CSU came into to Utah with high hopes and after Friday’s win over the Utes by a score of 14-3, things were definitely looking up. On Saturday however, CSU took on BYU and lost a tight 8-5 game between two top 10 teams. I’ve noticed that BYU typically hosts the Saturday games and Utah the Friday games, especially against better teams. I’ve also noticed BYU doesn’t usually play a game on Friday (which makes sense for them since they are the home team) when they play a tough home game on Saturday. This isn’t a knock on BYU at all… I’m just curious to see how this effects them in Denver! The Cougars are clearly a top level team, so expectations are high.
After the CSU games we’ve got a couple great MCLA D2 Photos from a recent Westminster – UVSU game that Westminster won 16-6. CPT may have a heart attack when he sees the UVSU uniforms, and they’re definitely “green” Cuse inspired… but I dig them. I also really like Westminsters’ lids.
As usual, our excellent Utah lax photo content is provided by Victoria Harris of All-American Shots. If you’re playing lax in Utah and you don’t hire Victoria to shoot your games, then you must be plumb crazy! She does great work.

I think these BYU guys are singing the national anthem, which is very cool. I love it when players sing the national anthem at home games. Nothing like diverse laxers! But look at their hands. Rubber gloves. Because it’s cold out. Haha. Classic. Now I was always told that the guys wore rubber gloves, not to keep their hands WARM, but to keep the hands DRY, which in turn, keeps them warmer. Science. Personally, if it were ever that cold I’d opt for Wide Receiver gloves under my lax gloves. I know it works because famous NY Tech defenders used to do it when we scrimmaged them.
