Dialed In: Your Lacrosse Fix for Friday, Jan. 14

The USA Lacrosse Convention returns to Baltimore this weekend with activities running from Friday through Sunday.


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

1. The ceremonial kickoff to the lacrosse season gets underway today with the USA Lacrosse Convention taking place in Baltimore through Sunday. National team coaches, star players and more highlight this annual celebration of the sport which returns to an in-person format after a virtual run last year.

2. Drexel’s women’s lacrosse program had a breakthrough season in 2021. Now with new coach Kim Hillier in charge, the Dragons are looking to keep pushing forward. Kenny DeJohn gets up close with Drexel.

3. A dynamic midfield will be the strength this year for the Denver men’s lacrosse team, ranked 12th in the Nike / USA Lacrosse preseason poll.

4. James Madison doesn’t have a home this year due to the school moving its entire athletic department to the Sun Belt Conference, but the 2018 national champs still have NCAA tournament aspirations.

5. Former Colgate head coach Mike Murphy is returning to college coaching, this time at Penn State, after helping the Whipsnakes win a pair of Premier Lacrosse League championships.
