Fall Ball Has Arrived!

Bring on another season of Generals Lacrosse!

This past weekend we started our nontraditional season, known in the lacrosse world as Fall Ball.  Being able to go out and start working with the men in our program is something our staff has been waiting for since students returned to campus a month ago.  There is something about the anticipation of what fall ball will bring that gets me all amped up.  Being able to see which players worked hard in the off-season and which first year players will be able to make the necessary adjustments from high school to college lacrosse is always exciting.  After our first weekend of practice, I can say that the men in our program have worked very hard in the off-season!

The intensity of practice was high and the team competed very hard in each drill.  I was very pleased with how well the players adjusted to the new rules that were recently passed by the NCAA.  Some of the new rules that I was very interested in seeing how the players react to in particular were the quick restarts and new stick stringing rules.  Though it is early, I am extremely excited to work with this team, the other coaches, and support staff.  You can follow the program on Twitter @wlulacrosse.

It was great to go home Saturday afternoon feeling very satisfied after Friday and Saturday’s practices and watch some college football with friends.  After watching my beloved Buckeyes pull out a one-point victory, I was able to follow the Generals football team pick up another victory as well.  Congratulations to Luke Heinsohn, running back for the football team and an All-ODAC lacrosse player, for becoming W&L’s all time leading scorer in the history of the football program!
