Dialed In: Your Lacrosse Fix for Friday, June 17


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

1. Drew Kelleher is officially joining UMass Lowell.

After reports surfaced earlier this week that Kelleher would leave Manhattan for UMass Lowell, the university announced the news Thursday. Kelleher helped Manhattan to its first MAAC championship and NCAA tournament berth in 20 years, but now he’s on to a new challenge with the River Hawks.

2. Maryland is loading up again.

Dan Kaplan of Inside Lacrosse reports that the national champion Terps are adding Bowdoin star Donal Mullane via the transfer portal. Mullane was the 2022 NESCAC Player of the Year after producing 59 goals and 46 assists in 16 games for the Polar Bears.

3. PLL co-founders Paul and Mike Rabil premiered “Fate of a Sport” at Tribeca Film Festival Wednesday night.

USA Lacrosse Magazine contributor Lauren Merola was there to see the film and speak with the Rabil brothers about its origins and intended impact.

4. Michelle Tumolo is holding nothing back at Army.

During Pride Month, Beth Ann Mayer wrote about Tumolo’s presence and impact at Army — a place where “don’t ask, don’t tell” was in effect as recently as 2011. But Tumolo says she’s felt incredible support from the West Point community as an out gay woman.

5. Bates has found Peter Lasagna’s successor.

That would be Dan Annino, who will be the fourth head coach in program history after spending time on staff at Johns Hopkins.
