VIDEO: Mercyhurst North East Scrimmages Thiel College, Herkimer CC and Bethany

Mercyhurst North East (an NJCAA team in PA) recently scrimmaged NJCAA powerhouse Herkimer CC, as well as two new Div III schools, in Thiel College and Bethany. We’ve got video from all 3 scrimmages. It might be February, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t any lax hotness. There’s a lot of it actually!

Earlier today, we posted game film from Mercyhurst’s 2010 game vs. Delaware Tech.  DT won 13-12 in OT.  Now we have scrimmage video from Mercyhurst North East and in it they play Thiel College, Bethany and NJCAA powerhouse, Herkimer Community College.  MNE’s program is pretty new and so is Thiel’s program, while Herk is a lax tradition heavy upstate NY school with strong ties to the local reservations and high schools.

Thiel (which is in Pennsylvania) is coached by Shem Johnston-Bloom, a teammate of mine on both the football and lacrosse squads at Weselyan University.  Shem had never played lacrosse before joining the team as a junior in college.  But don’t let that dissuade you from thinking he’s going to be a good coach.  Both Erin Quinn (Middlebury) and Mike Daly (Tufts) NEVER played lacrosse, and both have coached teams to Division III National Championships in the last 10 years.  Some food for thought.  if you want to help Thiel get their program rolling along even better, you can donate to their lacrosse program.  Pretty cool.

I have no idea what Bethany is (ok, I do… they’re a brand new team entering Division III, just like Thiel!) but it’s great to see all these new teams balling out and getting ready for 2011.  LAX!!
