Lax Links: August 24, 2012

Oh, hi there hastily thrown-together post. As always, hit the inbox with tips, questions, etc.

Beth e-mails to let me know that Walled Lake is seeking multiple lacrosse coaches. See the LaxPower listings for details.

Mike Costello hits up D-3 coaches for offseason updates: Hope. Albion.

Former Detroit assistant Matt Karweck has been hired at his alma mater, Notre Dame. He was with the Titans in 2011 as offensive coordinator (and when he left…).

Former Albion standout Stacey Tardich runs a lacrosse school in Northville.

Fancy yourself a Michigan Wolverine? If you’re a student in Ann Arbor, you can try out for the lacrosse team Sept. 10.

The absolute worst part about the new stick stringing regulations that the NCAA is considering? They make the logo for this site make a whole lot less sense. BOOO NCAA.

Conestoga (Pa.) goalie Robbie Zonino, a Michigan commit, is the No. 30 rising senior in the country according to Inside Lacrosse. Future teammate Tommy Heidt, also a goalie, is No. 42 in the 2014 class.

Detroit’s women earned IWLCA recognition for academics, after the team’s cumulative GPA surpassed 3.0.

Expansion/Re-alignment Obsession

Boston College’s (noted incompetent) AD Gene DeFilippo announced his retirement last week, and naturally everyone’s first thought – at least around these parts – was the impact on lacrosse in Chesnut Hill.

There are plenty of obvious positives to a potential addition of lacrosse at the school: it fits with the academic profile of the institution, a natural rival (new addition Boston U) and several other schools in reasonable proximity, an automatic-bid conference in the ACC is BC ups its game, and the small fact that BC had a team until 2002.

No other school has as much potential in its favor as Boston College.

Internal Linkage

Michigan commits perform well at the Warrior 40.
