Pre-Practice Mix Up
As a student at Drake University, the lack of lacrosse has been an unfamiliar feeling for the past four years that I have lived in the Midwest. I, along with some friends, made it a goal to change that, and make the capital of Iowa recognize the greatness that the sport has to offer. In our first year of official play, the Drake Men’s Lacrosse Club has already made a name for itself. That name may not include “the toughest” or “the most talented” but we are known for truly living out the lax dream. That is to chill, play some great lacrosse, and have fun doing it. Do not be mistaken though, we are a force to be reckoned with, but we are also the club that will invite our opponents out for drinks afterwards.
I have been honored the job of hosting Music Monday, so I bring to you a personal mix, influenced by my fellow teammates, that always gets me into the Drake Lacrosse spirit.
