FEATURES
VIVE LA CROSSE
In a region where most sports fans could probably tell you the pros and cons of the Montreal Canadiens’ 116th overall draft pick, but don’t know what a long pole is, a lacrosse renaissance has begun.
By Daniel J. Rowe
THE MCCORD ACCORD
Coach Mindy McCord, assistant Paul McCord and star player Taylor McCord have made Jacksonville’s upstart women’s program a family affair.
By Laurel Pfahler
BULLDOGS ON THE BRINK
Yale was three minutes away from its first final four since 1990. Syracuse had other ideas. But this is no one-hit wonder. With a ton of talent back in 2014, the Bulldogs look like they’re here to stay.
