The addition of Adler makes Duke’s potential transfer class look even stronger.

Former Saint Joseph’s goalie Mike Adler, who entered the transfer portal on March 16, confirmed to US Lacrosse Magazine on Wednesday that he intends to transfer to Duke. Adler, who’s in the midst of an East Coast surfing road trip, will have two years of eligibility left after he redshirted his freshman season.

Box Score | Video Highlights

The University of Virginia men's lacrosse team opened the 2004 season this afternoon with a 15-4 win over Drexel in a game played before an overflow crowd of 2500 at the Haverford School. The win is the Cavaliers' 11th in a row, their longest since a 13-game streak four years ago.

Virginia was remarkably balanced offensively with 11 different players notching goals. Kyle DixonNathan KenneyTed Lamade and Matt Ward led the way with two apiece. Dixon and Ward both added assists to share scoring honors with John Christmas (1g, 2a).

The Dragons controlled the ball for most of the game's first four minutes but were unable to squeeze off a shot. A turnover by middie Yoni Cohen gave the Cavaliers their first significant possession and they quickly capitalized as John Christmas beat goalie Ryan Harney from the left side at 10:09. The shot was just Virginia's second of the game. Senior Justin Mullen scored on UVa's next attempt less than a minute later.

Middie Ted Lamade, seeing his first significant action in two years, scored his first goal since 2001 at the 6:41 mark of the first quarter to push the lead to 3-0. By this time Drexel hadn't even taken a shot. Matt Ward tallied with just over four minutes to play in the opening quarter for a 4-0 UVa lead.

Sophomore Jesse Rumble got Drexel on the board early in the second quarter with the first of his two goals. Rumble's goal was the Dragons' lone goal of the first 46 minutes of the game.

The Cavaliers rattled off the next seven goals to build an 11-1 lead going into the fourth quarter. Virginia goalie Tillman Johnson was replaced by Ryan Thompson shortly after giving up a goal to Sean Moloney early in the final quarter. Johnson finished with seven saves. Thompson allowed two goals, including one EMO goal, before giving way to freshman Kip Turner for the final six minutes. Turner stopped two shots.

UVa outshot Drexel 46-29 and was outstanding in transition with 25 successful clears in 27 attempts.

The Cavaliers head west next weekend for their next action. They face Air Force at 1 PM (EST) Saturday and Denver at 3:30 PM (EST) Sunday. Both games will be played at the University of Denver.

Premier Lacrosse League
LOS ANGELES, CA. (April 10, 2020) - The Premier Lacrosse League (PLL) has announced that the league will postpone the start of its 2020 season due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 season was scheduled to begin play on May 29-30 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA.
"The health of our players, coaches, fans and colleagues are of paramount importance to us as we go through this unprecedented time,” says PLL Co-Founder and CEO Mike Rabil. “As a league, we will continue to adhere to guidelines administered by the CDC, respective state governments, and our hosting venues. This was a difficult decision for our league but a necessary measure to ensure the safety of all parties.”
The PLL plans to provide the public with an update on a new start date for the 2020 season in May. 
In the interim, the PLL will be reaching out directly to existing ticket purchasers to communicate options and next steps.

USLacrosse Resources

Over the next several weeks, US Lacrosse coaches will share with you through this weekly newsletter, resources to continue to develop as a coach and benefit from when you’re able to get back on the field with your team. I'd completely remove the first line as it is pretty negative (not something I'd want to keep reading about after that intro) and we should try to be as positive as we can.

Physical Development

What are you doing to take care of yourself physically?
I’m sure you’ve heard over and over that exercise releases chemicals like endorphins and serotonin that improve your mood, and if you exercise regularly, it can reduce your stress and symptoms of mental health. Here is how we can help!

Take part in our four-week body-weight workout regimen to keep you in “playing” shape. Links for live workouts and replays for each week will be posted to the US Lacrosse Coach Development Facebook page, and
Twitter feed (@USLCDP). Workouts are from 10:00 am – 11:00 am
(EST) every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 3/30 – 4/24.

Other options:
• 10 Tips for Keeping Your Athletes Active

• Check out Team USA star Taylor Cummings’ agility workout. You can adjust reps, distance and footwork for any age athlete, boy or girl.

Cognitive Development

Five new courses have been added to the US Lacrosse e-learning library. These courses are quick, effective and will get you ready when the season resumes.

Athlete Development 

April is focused on the US Lacrosse Athlete Development principle of “Fun and Player-Centered.” Here’s a video that explains the concept.

Here are some quick, fun activities that reinforce core lacrosse skills.
