Lacrosse stuff

The beauty of the lacrosse community

I was headed to take my dog for a run to the local dog run in Melville, NY.

I stopped at Dunkin’ Donuts for a coffee and ran into the parents of Nortwestern’s Beatrice Conley.  What a great couple. They had driven down from upstate NY to go to the game at SUNY Stony Brook.

The week before, I was at the Men’s Lacrosse Quarterfinals at Hofstra. I happened to sit with the parents of UNC’s Women’s Coach Jenny Levy. Boy does her mom know the sport – the men’s and women’s game.  The Cortland Women’s Lacrosse coach, Kathy Taylor,  stopped by and say hello. (Shout out to Kathy: Congratulations on being named SUNYAC Women’s Lacrosse Coach of the Year.)

The passion and enthusiasm of people involved in lax is great. It’s still a relatively small community. Whether it’s the men’s or women’s game,  there is a certain passion about  the game.

While it is great the sport is increasing its popularity and geography (Denver in  the Men’s Final Four ???!!!#$#$!!) there is still something special about the size and intimacy of the small community.
