Colgate Lax in Newsday

Nice little article in Newsday today about senior Robert Trasolini and the good fortunes of Colgate lacrosse this year. It also mentions that Nagle has been a key part of Colgate's success. I sure hope we keep him, but given the strides Patriot League lacrosse is making and the fact he now has scholarships to use, I think we just need to keep him happy and he'll be here for a while.

A nice excerpt:

Colgate burst onto the national stage earlier this season when, on a chilly upstate afternoon in mid-March, it beat nationally ranked Navy, 6-3. Trasolini had two goals in the win. The Raiders have also posted wins over Bucknell and Binghamton, victories that could carry a lot of weight in the NCAA selection process.

That would give Trasolini, a biology major with an eye on medical school, a chance to fulfill his dream of playing in the NCAA Tournament. That's something that didn't seem possible when he finally made up his mind and enrolled at Colgate four years ago. Even if he doesn't play in the tournament, Trasolini said lacrosse and Colgate were the best decisions he's ever made, if not the quickest.
I hope this guys NCAA predictions are on. I think if we beat Army and play Navy well, we stand a good chance at large... but then again I also think we're going to win the whole thing! Let's Go 'Gate!!!!!!!!!!!
