PHILADELPHIA - The Saint Joseph's men's lacrosse team will blog throughout the 2013 fall season to keep fans up to date with current happenings on and off the field. Follow along here!
Entry 2 - John Winchell (10/17/13)
The team has been working extremely hard so far this fall. The coaches have been harping on the fundamentals and key terminology on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball so we can get better as a group in this development period. We had a lot of energy the week leading up the HEADstrong Nick Colleluori Classic, which was our first competition against another opponent. We have been a part of this tournament for a few years now and even though we are competing to get better, coach emphasizes the true meaning of why we are playing. We are very fortunate to be playing at this level and coach wants to put in our minds that HEADstong goes far beyond the game of lacrosse.
After the weekend, the team thought we made great strides. The effort we put forth in both games was very high, which goes a long way to how this team can get better and continue to compete. Though we had some highlights, the team knows we have a long way to go before we reach our full potential. We want to build off of the success we have had thus far into the rest of the fall season and into our other scrimmage with The Hill Academy from Canada.
