An emphasis on continued face-off changes seems to have been a major focus of meeting.

No Medicine Games During the Pandemic

My black referee bag sits shoved into a dark corner of my closet with everything jumbled inside. Yellow penalty flags crinkled from their last toss. A scorecard filled out in pencil. An upside-down referee hat. Above the bag, my black-and-white striped referee shirts hang side by side.

ESPNU will broadcast a marathon of NCAA lacrosse championship games starting Sunday and running through Monday, the fifth anniversary of Denver’s
