University of Virginia Lacrosse Season Preview

As a continuation of my most recent post, here is a look at a top division one lacrosse team, today’s is the University of Virginia:

Steele Stanwick ’12

Inside Lacrosse has UVA ranked #9 on their preseason poll and are projected to come in third in the ACC. However, I don’t see them having that great of a season. They will be in a similar situation that Syracuse found itself in last year. UVA graduated their three of their top scorers: Steele Stanwick (Loyola Blakefield), Chris Bocklett, and Colin Briggs (Bishop Hendricken). For the most part this will be a rebuilding year for the program. Hopefully, their new recruits can help restore them to the top of the loaded ACC conference.

This Spring, two of UVA’s top players come from New England Prep Schools. Junior middie Blake Riley attended the Governor’s Academy. The program has consistently won ISL championships and produced D1 players for the past decade. Senior attackman Charlie Streep also played his high school lacrosse at Loomis Chaffee.

UNC Men’s Lacrosse: Welcome to the Grind

I may be a little biased here because they’re my favorite team, but this video is amazing. I watched it for the first time in the dead of December but I was so inspired and amped up I went out and played wallball. North Carolina is in contention for the NCAA Championship and in my opinion, they have the best attack line in the whole country. With Holman (Gilman), Bitter (Deerfield), and Sankey (Penn Charter) opposing goalies should be shaking in their creases. This video shows the work in the off season that will help them hoist the hardware come May. The season is only a couple weeks away with games starting in February. Get ready! I’ll be giving reviews on some of the top teams in the country leading up to the season.

Chinese Apocalypse Balls

I saw this on Barstool a few days ago and I don’t really know what to make of this. It’s kind of cool, but a little extreme and impractical. Nonetheless a cool idea from the Chinese. Hopefully they won’t have to use these, or else I’ll look pretty stupid.

Introduction — On Point

Hey Guys,

I’m Noah and I’m a pretty recent addition to the T&V staff. I go to Nobles and I’m from Boston. I’ll post about a wide range of stuff like Cape Cod, Maine, lacrosse; the usual stuff. I consider myself a fantasy sports savant, which isn’t helpful as the fantasy football season winds down. However baseball is coming up soon so get ready for draft help and who to sign.

Not Sure Why This Is So Funny…

For some reason I found this hilarious. Something about Bane’s voice and the way this guy acts is pretty funny. This is fitting because Dark Knight Rises came out on DVD last week. The ending is great where the cashier tells him to, “watch out for weirdos.” Oh the irony. Also, why have I never heard of Krystal? I googled it and there’s one in Lawrence, MA?
