Good morning. Here’s the latest from around the lacrosse world:

1. Kevin Lindley stands alone.

The senior attackmen from Darien, Conn., set Loyola’s all-time goals record in last night’s Patriot League quarterfinal against Navy. He scored twice and set the record with his 152nd career tally. Loyola, on something of a hot streak lately, beat Navy 16-9 to advance.

Aidan Olmstead led the charge with five goals and one assist, and Bailey Savio went 21-for-28 on faceoffs.

In the other Patriot League quarterfinal, Colgate avenged two regular-season losses to Boston University by playing well when it mattered most. The Raiders won 11-8 thanks to two goals and three assists from Brian Minicus and a hat trick by Adam Salvaggio.

Friday’s semifinal round will see Colgate play Lehigh and Loyola play Army.

2. US Lacrosse supports the free stream of “Spirit Game: Pride of a Nation” documentary.

US Lacrosse is proud to partner with One Bowl Productions, the Iroquois Nationals, Thompson Brothers Lacrosse, and 4 the Future Foundation on a free streaming experience of the award-winning documentary “Spirit Game: Pride of a Nation.”

3. Pat Kavanagh is the Player of the Week … again.

The highlight-making sophomore from Notre Dame loves to play against Syracuse.

The other time was also after he played Syracuse.

4. Caitlyn Petro is close to Division I history.

The UMass draw specialist is five draw controls away from breaking Hailey Wagner’s record of 224 set in 2019. Petro controlled 16 draws in her team’s A-10 championship game victory over Saint Joseph’s, earning her US Lacrosse Division I Women’s Player of the Year honors.
