    Keep on meaning to start this thread for us to forward anything we hear lacrosse- related during the off-season.

    A couple things to start off-
    1) A belated Congrats (the article was dated 5/13) to midfielder Marie Moore and defender Sarah Brown for being named All-Region 2nd team by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association!
    (Article is at http://www.cubuffs.com/ViewArticle....600&ATCLID=210952702&SPID=104095&SPSID=659147 . Per going back through cubuffs.com, looks like they follow in the footsteps of goalie Paige Soenksen, who was the only Buff to be named to the team previously, having also been selected 2nd team after both her freshman and sophomore seasons.)

    2) And, congrats to the following Buffs for being named to the Conference All-Academic Team!

    Obviously not a requirement to be a good coach (and probably rare at CU?), but it must be at least a little perk for Coach Elliott to have assistant coaches that I assume can, at minimum, still compete with the players they coach on the field. Congrats to assistants Alex Frank and Kailah Kempney for making the championship game of a new "United Women's Lacrosse League" (UWLX), which is, per http://uwlx.pointstreaksites.com/view/uwlx/uwlx-home-page, the 1st women's pro lax league in history. (Looks like the championship game is going on now per the schedule.)

    Per a thread in the laxpower forum (http://network.laxpower.com/laxforum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=61784&sid=87ecf6edc91c17192870d96d7dbcb690) that is trying to keep up with the off-season scrimmage schedule of all the teams , one poster says DU is scheduled to come scrimmage the Buffs in Boulder on October 8th.
    (This date is also confirmed via a DU article from early last month- http://www.denverpioneers.com/sports/w-lacros/spec-rel/080916aaa.html , with the scrimmage start time noted being 10:00 AM.)
