Thul leads Army past Lafayette

Saturday afternoon was a win on two levels: Army crushed a visiting Lafayette squad for its first Patriot League lacrosse victory, and I managed to avoid the omnipresent speed traps at West Point for a second straight week. Army senior Garrett Thul had six goals and fellow attackman John Glesener added four more along with three assists to combine for 13 points in the Black Knights’ 15-6 …

Through the rain

The weather in New York has been pretty gross lately. A lot of rainy days and cold, windy mornings combined with a pair of solid snow storms. Seriously, this has to be the windiest winter I can remember. Here’s a look at some recent Instagram prints.

Offense stalls, Army falls to Lehigh

It was 211 years ago today, March 16, 1802, that West Point was founded.

And now after a year of unanswered emails and even a …

Syracuse takes down Army at the dome

A little late in posting these photos, but here’s my gallery of shots from Army’s big road game at the Carrier Dome against Syracuse last month. Neither team really broke out offensively (Army senior Garrett Thul saw his record-setting goal-scoring streak end) as Army lost 6-2 to the Orangemen, who were ranked No. 18 nationally at the time of the …

Q&A with Marlins prospect Jake Marisnick

Earlier this week I spoke with Jake Marisnick, the Miami Marlins‘ No. 3 prospect entering the 2013 season. Marisnick was one of the key young prospects that was shipped by Toronto to Miami in the Jose Reyes/Josh Johnson/Mark Buehrle blockbuster this offseason, so while the Marlins are in another round of fire-sale rebuilding, fans will hang some hope on guys like Marisnick for …
