“90210” Lacrosse Update: New Episodes Coming…


 90210-tristan21

So we’ve been pushing the new 90210 recently, not only because our boy Scott Hochstadt (see above) is the main man producing the lax scenes for the new CW show, but also because it’s the only place right now that you can watch lacrosse in TV or film (and Samuel L. Jackson’s new movie does NOT cut it). Oh, and the scenes are very realistic and pretty slick.

We got the word that there’s going to be some new lax storylines on 90210this week’s episode (No. 11 on the season, if you’re counting), featuring Tristan Wilds‘ character Dixon (see above shot), so head over to the CW on Tuesday night at 8 pm to check it out.

An update (11/17 — 5:55 PM): Got in touch with Adrenaline’s Justin Smith, who’s informed me that all the players in the upcoming episode will be wearing the iconic Adrenaline socks. They hope to get more equipment in the show in the future….

Check back for more on Wednesday morning…

Lacrosse Team Reaches Out To Community: Columbia University Women’s Lacrosse Team Visits City Elementary School


 “Seeing the genuine excitement and happiness in the faces of those kids at P.S. 76 reminded us of how important it is to do something for the community to which we belong. It is especially valuable for student-athletes like ourselves to get involved with younger kids because we can serve as influential figures in shaping their future aspirations.”

NEW YORK – On Friday, November 14, the Columbia University women’s lacrosse team spent the afternoon playing with children at P.S. 76 A. Phillip Randolph Elementary School as part of an after-school program called America Reads.

The team traveled to 121st Street between St. Nicholas and Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard to spend the afternoon with 15 kids.  The students, who were all in the second grade, ranged in age from 7-8 years old.  Each member of the lacrosse team was paired up with one of the students. 

The Lions began the afternoon by reading children’s stories and teaching the children about lacrosse.  The highlight of the afternoon came when the elementary school students were able to decorate a variety of cookies.

“I think that sometimes the demands of academics and athletics can distract students from the bigger picture,” explains senior Lauren Olsen.  “Seeing the genuine excitement and happiness in the faces of those kids at P.S. 76 reminded us of how important it is to do something for the community to which we belong. It is especially valuable for student-athletes like ourselves to get involved with younger kids because we can serve as influential figures in shaping their future aspirations.”

The Lions will begin their 2009 season when they host Monmouth on Robert K. Kraft Field at Wien Stadium on February 27 at 3 p.m.
