Fall ball in gear

The men’s lacrosse team is gearing up for a new season. The team has captured the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference championships six years in a row, and they’re ready and set to start playing again.

The team has a pretty tough schedule, but their practices show that they work hard and don’t slack. They’re looking forward to playing on the new turf field, as well as winning another PAC championship.

According to coach Steve Colfer, the reason he has such a strong team has to do with the players. “We are fortunate to have top-notch kids,” he said. “The talent gets better and better every year.”

Though the players agree that they have great team chemistry, they say the coaches are their strength.

“The program has really built its way up and the coaches lead by example,” Billy Cordts, a senior history major, said.

“We’re like a family,” Dan Leigh, a junior business administration major, said. “We’re working hard, even in the fall when most other teams aren’t.”

With six PAC championships won, they’ve already made a name for themselves. However, they’re still looking forward to winning No. 7.

“There are no guarantees, but if anything, we’re better than ever,” Cordts said.

The team is busy incorporating the new freshmen into their mix, as they had a large recruitment this year. Colfer owes this to the team’s reputation and success. The players agree.

“It’s a great build up for the program,” Leigh said. “They’ll push next year’s freshmen like we pushed them.”

“The recruitment will push the upper classmen to keep their spots on the team,” Denis Beovich, a senior management information science major, said. Right now, the team is preparing for Fall Ball and their tournament in Haverford on Saturday, Oct. 7.
