From the Longhouse to Homewood
Two distinct lacrosse cultures converged April 5 in Baltimore. On one side, you had upstart Albany and its hard-to-miss attack trio of Lyle, Miles and Ty Thompson. Lyle and Miles have braided ponytails that protrude from their helmets to the back of their jerseys — a visual reminder of the sport's ancient roots as an Iroquois way of life.

Some members have noticed that the address label on the magazine is now being printed upside down. This is not a printing error. This is a new requirement from the USPS for periodicals using co-mail (which we do). The only way to print addresses right-side up would be to move them to the back cover, which we do not favor doing at this time.
