Dialed In: Your Lacrosse Fix For Thursday, Sept. 30


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

1. The NLL is Back. 631 days after the 2020 season was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Lacrosse League will make its return the first weekend of December. Yesterday, the league announced its full competition schedule for the 2021-22 season. The San Diego Seals host the Vancouver Warriors on Dec. 3 in the season opener.

“We can’t wait to see NLL fans cheering on ‘Face Off Weekend’ beginning in just over two months,” NLL commissioner Nick Sakiewicz said in a statement

Check out the full schedule here.

2. Lacrosse at the collegiate level is coming to South Dakota for the first time.

Kenny DeJohn talked with Augustana University athletic director Josh Morton about the school’s plan to add lacrosse for the 2023-24 school year.

3. On July 1, the NCAA passed legislation that student-athletes could profit off their name, image or likeness. In the Sept./Oct. edition of USA Lacrosse Magazine, Justin Feil took a detailed look at how NIL has and will impact the sport.

Full story here.

4. There’s a new No. 1 in College Park.

According to Inside Lacrosse’s Kevin Brown, in 2022 fifth-year senior attackman Logan Wisnauskas will don the jersey number worn by the likes of Matt Rambo, Connor Kelly and most recently Tewaaraton winner Jared Bernhardt. Wisnauskas was a third team USILA All-American last spring and has registered 237 points (144 goals, 93 assists) in 57 games at Maryland.
