Lacrosse – Duke vs Notre Dame – Duke by 5 (early line)

Duke ND Lax

Can this 2010 NCAA Lacrosse tournament be any more exciting?

The Duke – Virginia semi-final game was unbelievable.  (The hearts of these teams were unbelievable.) I’m so pumped for today’s Duke vs Notre Dame.  Hopefully it’s another great game.

Who will win? After spending an a hour reading articles and interviews from coaches, players, and lacrosse experts, I have come up with the determining factor for today’s game.

wink

The Long Island FactorThe team with the most Long Islanders will win today.  We know Long Island is Lacrosse Country and that will be the dominant factor today.  Based upon this serious and detailed analysis, the outcome will be Duke by 5.  (Duke has 9 and ND  has 4 Long Islanders. Rosters below.) Sorry to all you Westchester and Maryland people. It is what it is…

(Another factor is we’re headed to a Dukee’s house for today’s Memorial Day BBQ… If I picked ND I would not get any of Duke-Head’s Beer Can Chicken.)

Go Duke! Go ND!  Here’s to a great game!

Good Luck to Matt Kerwick and the University of Jacksonville’s Mens Lacrosse Program

Coach Matt Kerwick is putting together the Men’s Lacrosse Team at the University of Jacksonville.  We wish him the best of luck developing the program.

He has been successful recruiting some players from here  on Long Island (Robert Moore (A) – West Islip High School, West Islip, N.Y, and Kyle Rebman (A) – Baldwin High School, Baldwin, N.Y.) and All-American Peter Deluca (Goalie) – Penn Manor High School, Philadelphia, Pa.

JU starts this year (February 6, 2010) against UNC.

Go for it Coach.  Here is his recruiting video.

If you are looking to play D1 Lax, it’s worth taking a look. You can help build a winner.

Want to play College Lacrosse? Lax Scholarship information

You play lacrosse in high school. Everyone dreams of playing high D1 college lacrosse at Syracuse, Johns Hopkins, UVA, UNC, Hofstra, Princeton, Maryland, or other top schools.

Is it realistic? Sometimes. Usually not.lacrosse money scholarships college

Per the National Collegiate Scouting Association (ncsa.org), there are 287 colleges offering Men’s Lacrosse and 356 colleges offering Women’s Lacrosse. That’s a lot of schools of varying “Divisions”, sizes, and qualities of programs. But it is a lot of schools so there is opportunity to play. You may not end up starting at UVA, but you can continue playing the sport you love after high school.

To get money and scholarships you need exposure. Participate in camps and programs. Get out there. Write letters. Get good grades. Network. Speak to your coach. Improve your skills.

Many of the Division III schools offer merit, academic, and need-base scholarships.

There is a lot of useful information on the web. A good place to start is ncsa.org.

Go for it!
