Dialed In: Your Lacrosse Fix for Tuesday, June 28


Good morning. Here's the latest from the lacrosse world:

1. The World Lacrosse Women’s Championship is one day away.

Inclement weather forced the U.S. women’s national team to shuffle its practice schedule. But the women got to work in the afternoon. The U.S. opens its title defense tomorrow against Canada in a rematch of the 2017 championship game. First draw is set for 7 p.m. Tickets are available here.

2. Natalie Shurtleff’s breakout season ends with USA Lacrosse Magazine’s Mid-Atlantic Girls’ Player of the Year nod.

St. Paul’s (Md.) lost 13 players to graduation after winning the IAAM title last season. The Gators repeated anyway, largely thanks to the play of Shurtleff, who tallied 62 goals, 20 assists and 54 draws. Learn about the Clemson commit.

3. Dom Pietramala’s senior season was defined by leadership.

Pietramala was one of the most sought-after recruits in the class of 2022. But his senior year at Boys’ Latin was defined by how he lifted his teammates. It earned the UNC-bound attackman the distinction of USA Lacrosse Magazine’s Mid-Atlantic Player of the Year.

4. The college coaching carousel keeps spinning.

Jordan Levine, who led Mercy to the Division II championship game last month, has been tapped as the next LIU men’s lacrosse coach. Levine served as the school’s associate director of athletics.

Meanwhile, former Johns Hopkins associate head coach Tara Singleton is taking over the women’s head coach post at Jacksonville.

5. Jamie Ortega accepted the Honda Award last night, an honor bestowed on the top women’s athletes in the country each year.
