Thought I'd start this thread to collect any news related to the lacrosse team during this off-season.

A couple things to start with- congrats to the 11 Buffs who earned Pac 12 All-Academic honors and the 3 who've been named to the Coaches Association's (LWCA's) All-West/Midwest Region team!

Lacrosse going young with its new coaching and staff hires, as 2019 grad Nicole Levy (from a traditionally strong Syracuse program) is named assistant coach, while 2018 Buff grad Carly Cox moves up from Grad Asst. coach last season to Director for Player Development this season.
(GUESSING that combined they may be combining to help replace former asst. coach Alex Frank, who has moved on to become the Dartmouth head coach (post #8).)

Welcome to Ms. Levy, and congrats and best wishes to both her and Ms. Cox!

maybe they went young so they can hire two and get a larger staff that is more of a norm for top programs. I can not complain about Whidden's hires. She had done a great job so far
