  • Lacrosse championship weekend

    Anyone follow this? I just started getting into it a few years ago, but only casually. I have to say, if it was as popular as it is now, i would have played it when I was in HS. Anyone have any opinion? Having watched all four teams in Albany, Yale, Maryland and Duke, any team has a shot. Obviously I'm partial to Albany. Ill be watching today!

    I've been following lacrosse for years. Going to the championship game Mon. Glad they're back @ Gillette.

        Wasn't the RPI lacrosse team still using the '86 Field while you were an undergrad? If so, you couldn't help but see parts of games while moving between classes. One of my most vivid recollections was watching the two teams trying to dig the ball out of the mud on the field after a rain storm. While I was an undergrad RPI was in the process of downgrading the program for a nationally ranked program to a D-III program. We still played schools like Syracuse and were completive my first couple of years but got killed by my senior year (1968).

          I'd forgotten we were competitive! I remembered reading that our team made the trip to London for the exhibition at the Olympic Games. Basically the RPI team was 'our team' for the exhibition. Ned harkness was the coach or was it one of his relatives? I always thought we just drifted during the 50's.

            It was indeed Ned.

              RPI got a few mentions on the Worldwide Leader during the game as UAlbany had a player, Kyle McClancy, all set to attend the Tute before visiting Albany returning from his recruiting visit

                For the 2nd year in a row BC lost the women's lax championship. Last year to Maryland, this year to James Madison.

                  All we need is for Duke to lose the men's and justice will be served.
