NCAA Lacrosse: “2012 Mile High Classic” Features Denver Men’s Lacrosse Vs Duke And Virginia Vs Penn At Denver’s Sports Authority Field On April 27

The University of Denver men’s lacrosse team will take part in a new signature event called the “Mile High Classic,” hosted by Inside Lacrosse during the 2012 season, it was announced today by Bob Carpenter, publisher of Inside Lacrosse Magazine. The Pioneers will face the Duke University Blue Devils in a double header with defending National Champions Virginia and Penn at Sports Authority Field on Friday, April 27, 2012.

Virginia and Penn will kick off the Mile High Classic at 5:30 p.m. MT, followed by the Pioneers’ game against the Blue Devils at 8 p.m. MT. Recently dubbed the Lacrosse Capitol of the WestTM, Denver will face Duke for the fifth time in program history, with Duke holding a 3-1 advantage in the all-time series.

“The opportunity for the 2012 Denver Pioneers to be a part of the inaugural Mile High Classic is another piece of fulfilling our dream of showcasing what lacrosse means to Denver, the Capital of Lacrosse in the West,” said head coach Bill Tierney. “To have the chance to help our friends at Inside Lacrosse and the wonderful people from the Broncos and Outlaws organizations, host these amazing programs in Division I Lacrosse, is a great honor. Having the chance to experience being a part of these events in the past, has allowed me to be sure that everyone will be amazed by this double-header. We know it will send a great message to the NCAA that the city of Denver is ready to host a Lacrosse championship weekend in the near future.”

The event will be IL’s third signature event scheduled for the 2012 season as the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic is planned for March 10 and the Konica Minolta Big City Classic is planned for April.

Inside Lacrosse has established the standard for the promotion of lacrosse with its event properties. These events have brought unprecedented excitement and fan interest to college lacrosse’s regular season. Inside Lacrosse has drawn more than 200,000 fans to its 10 events, including 42,172 fans to its two events in 2011.

The addition of the Mile High Classic promises a highly-charged night of college lacrosse that could serve as a preview for a future NCAA Championship event to be held in Denver – or anywhere for that matter. This lineup includes four participants from the 2011 NCAA Tournament, three of whom advanced to the semifinals (Denver, Duke and Virginia) including the defending national champions (Virginia).  

“Inside Lacrosse is thrilled to introduce the Mile High Classic,” Carpenter said. “For the past six years, Inside Lacrosse has been committed to creating memorable fan experiences with our event properties. The fact the sport is exploding in Colorado is undeniable and for some time we’ve been looking for the right opportunity to launch an event in Denver.  This is an amazing game lineup that’s ideal to showcase the sport on a new stage.”

Carpenter added: “We could not possibly organize events like the Mile High Classic without the coaches and administrators at each of the participating schools sharing in our vision.  And Edge Sports & Entertainment and the Denver Outlaws have stepped up as willing partners ready to open their stadium to host lacrosse fans for this high-profile event. We greatly appreciate their support and mutual interest in promoting the sport.”

“Inside Lacrosse has developed the most compelling collegiate lacrosse events in the country and it’s exciting that Sports Authority Field at Mile High will host their next event.  Inside Lacrosse clearly recognizes the growth of the game in the West and the great lacrosse fans of Colorado in particular.  Featuring three of last year’s Final Four teams, there is no doubt this will be a great day of lacrosse and we look forward to this being an annual event,” said Mac Freeman, President of the Denver Outlaws.


NCAA Lacrosse: Notre Dame Men’s Lacrosse Defeats Penn 13-6 In First Round Of NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championships On May 14 (Video)

No. 4 seed Notre Dame defeated Penn 13-6 on Saturday afternoon at Arlotta Stadium in the first round of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship.


Senior attackman Colin Igoe registered a career-high four points on three goals and an assist for the Fighting Irish.

Notre Dame (11-2) received two goals apiece from Zach Brenneman, Westy Hopkins, Nicholas Beattie and Pat Cotter. Steve Murphy and Sean Rogers both chipped in a goal for the Irish, while junior long-stick midfielder Bobby Smithdished out a career-high two assists. Notre Dame had nine assists on its 13 goals.

The Fighting Irish defense held Penn (8-7) to just one second-half goal. The Quakers did not score from the 2:55 mark of the second quarter until the 5:43 mark of the fourth quarter, a span of 27:12

“Penn is a very good team but I thought we played one of our best games of the year,” said Notre Dame head coach Kevin Corrigan. “We expected a defensive struggle with two teams known for playing great defense, but it was 8-5 at halftime. I thought we settled down a lot defensively. We didn’t move around so much and get ourselves in trouble.”

Notre Dame grabbed an early 4-0 lead in the contest. Hopkins put the Irish on the board, while Beattie deposited back-to-back tallies to put the Irish up by three at the 6:52 mark of the opening quarter. Rogers scored 25 seconds later to increase the Irish advantage to four.

Penn goals from Rob Fitzpatrick and Al Kohart in the final two minutes of the period made it a 4-2 game by the end of the first quarter.

Goals from Cotter and Murphy 37 seconds apart put Notre Dame on top 6-2 just over five minutes into the second quarter. The Quakers responded with a Dan Savage goal midway through the period.

NCAA Women’s Lacrosse: Stanford Women’s Lacrosse Travels To Philadelphia To Play Defending National Champion Maryland, Virginia And Pennsylvania On Oct. 23

The Stanford women’s lacrosse team embarks on a championship challenge this weekend, as the Card travels to Philadelphia to take on three top-10 teams this Saturday. While the Card will be missing Homecoming, the reason is most definitely a good one, as it will tangle with perennial powerhouses Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania.

Stanford capped off last weekend’s playday by knocking off three Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) foes, but the task gets elevated to a new level this weekend at Franklin Field, home of the Quakers.

The highlight of the weekend will be when the Card takes on Maryland, the defending national champion. Of course, Penn and Virginia are no slouches either, as both made last year’s NCAA Tournament as well.

Maryland took home the national title with a 13-11 victory over Northwestern, which was ranked No. 1 for most of the season.

The Northwestern-Maryland matchup in the title game was especially significant for the Terrapins, who were pining to knock off the Wildcats team that had captured every national championship since 2005, a streak of five in a row.
