Dialed In: Your Lacrosse Fix for Thursday, Nov. 11


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

1. Women’s lacrosse just keeps growing.

The University of South Florida announced Wednesday it would become the 118th school with an NCAA Division I women’s lacrosse program. The Bulls are off and running in 2023-24. USF will compete in the American Athletic Conference. There are now four Division I teams in Florida. Florida, Jacksonville and Stetson are the others.

2. Gear of the Year.

We partnered with Lax.com to identify what products will be top sellers in 2022 and why you should budget for them next season.

3. He a Terp.

Wednesday was National Signing Day, as scores of high school seniors signed national letters of intent confirming their commitment to colleges.

Riley Reese, the son of Maryland women’s lacrosse coach Cathy Reese and former professional lacrosse player and coach Brian Reese, notably signed with his parents’ alma mater.

Riley is the oldest of four Reese children. He has Type 1 diabetes. Their chaotic and charming family dynamic was detailed in a 2017 Baltimore Sun article titled, “Doing It All” and a 2013 Washington Post article titled, “How Does She Do It?”

Like his father, Riley Reese is a defenseman. The 6-footer plays for St. Mary’s (Md.) and the Maryland Roughriders.
