NCAA Lacrosse: Cal Berkeley Women’s Lacrosse Tara Arolla & Tori Harrison’s “Bear TaraTori” Blog Offers Great Insight Into Western Lacrosse


We hope all of you enjoy the new look and new name of our blog. Noting that the biggest theme this year has been one of change, it only makes sense to shake things up on the blog as well! We also now have some friendly blog competition as our coach has set up a weekly blog "Mondays with Ginger" on CalBears.com, so naturally our competitive spirit took over a little bit. Now, we wanted to talk about all of the changes that have taken place this year. We started off this fall season with a new head coach, Ginger Miles who has since added on Emma Wallace and Allison Comito to form our amazing new coaching staff. We also said goodbye to our strength & conditioning coach at the end of last season and have been lucky enough to work with the amazing Coach Ziemba this year. We have welcomed eight new freshmen to our team who have transitioned seamlessly into our lacrosse family and we have loved getting to know and play with them these past few months. We have a new academic advisor who has been so patient in handling our teams 8,000 questions per day, most of those being our questions about how many units we need to complete before graduating since your cal lax bloggers are now seniors! One of the changes that has taken place this year that we are all extremely excited about is our move into our new locker room in the High Performance Center. This new locker room is beautiful and the entire High Performance Center is the most amazingly beneficial addition to Cal Athletics and is going to make the student-athlete experience here at Cal even more special and rewarding. We have already made use of the state-of-the-art academic center as it opened just in time for our grueling midterms week. We are so happy we got to squeeze in one year in the HPC before we graduate this spring! All of this change has had quite the impact on our squad and the girls are working harder than ever on and off the field with our eyes on the prize of an MPSF title this year. Get ready for an exciting season because all of this work is definitely starting to pay off as we have spent the past three weekends scrimmaging other MPSF teams to put what we have been learning in practice to use on the field. We have played in two play days in which we have competed against Saint Mary's, Oregon, UC Davis and Stanford. We have loved playing against other teams and seeing our competition. We have played great, but we have some work to do before season. This Sunday, we have another play day at Stanford. The following Sunday we play at Davis, which will conclude our fall ball. We are already itching for our Spring season to begin!

MCLA Lacrosse: Montana Men’s Lacrosse Finishes Fall Schedule With 16-7 Win Over Montana State On Oct 22


The men running around the frozen tundra field are members of the University of Montana Griz lacrosse club team. Already this fall, the team has played a few fall scrimmage games before the cold sets in. The Griz faced off against the Montana State Bobcats on Oct. 22 at Dornblaser field in Missoula, coming out with a 16-7 win. This year, the team welcomed nearly 10 freshmen who gained valuable collegiate playing time in the MSU game. "It went well," third-year head coach Tucker Sargent said. "Everyone got in, everyone contributed, and all the new guys are learning the system. Conditions were tough on the field with it being hard and muddy." Sargent mentioned some fresh faces that had strong performances, like freshman JD Chappman and Jake Drum. He also mentioned senior captain Kent Davis, who has great control in the midfield tempo and junior captain Henry Bishop, who scored a few goals. Even though lacrosse is a spring sport, the team has been rebuilding itself the past three years. Sargent said they were a winning team four years ago, but most of those players graduated. Since then, they have been rebuilding, and he said the juniors have been leading the charge along with the sophomores, who are taking their place.
