The Stanwick Way – PressBoxOnline.com
The eight Stanwick siblings share a strong work ethic and have been standouts on Baltimore lacrosse fields for more than two decades
University of Virginia men’s lacrosse coach Dom Starsia’s favorite memory of Steele Stanwick occurred during the first practice of Steele’s 2008-09 freshman season.
Starsia had written Steele, the fifth of the eight Stanwick children, after his 2008 graduation from Loyola Blakefield to say he needed someone to play the position of left-handed attack for the coming season and ask whether Steele could work on that part of his game.
“It was our very first drill of fall practice,” Starsia said. “He jumped in front of the left-handed line and ripped two shots, low to high, into the net. Then he kind of looked at me, as if to say, ‘I am going to take care of this for you, Coach.’ ”
It set the tone for Steele’s career at Virginia, during which he totaled 126 career goals and 143 career assists, won the 2011 Tewaaraton Award and helped lead the Cavaliers to victory during the 2011 national championship.
“There was a level of seriousness about his daily effort that was astonishing,” Starsia said. “It was a special discipline learned at home.”
From their work ethic, to their lacrosse IQ, to their ability to see three or four moves downfield, to their positive and humble demeanors, the Stanwick family of lacrosse players — Sheehan, Wick, Coco, Tad, Steele, Wells, Covie and Shack — has been taking care of business on the lacrosse field for more than two decades.
Shack’s graduation from Boys’ Latin in June will end a 21-year run of having a Stanwick playing Baltimore high school lacrosse. It began with Sheehan, who graduated from Notre Dame Prep in 1997. Wick (1999), Coco (2003) and Covie (2011) later competed for the Blazers, while Tad (2005) and Wells (2011) preceded Shack in the Lakers’ program.
“Sheehan, Wick and Coco were the pioneers,” said Bob Shriver, who is entering his 35th season as Boys’ Latin’s varsity lacrosse coach. “They all come with an amazing skill set — impeccable stick skills and amazing hands from throwing hundreds upon hundreds of balls at the wall. They have a great feel for the game, and they love to play. You can’t teach that stuff.”
They weren’t the fastest, biggest or strongest players, but these eight young women and men often worked the hardest, and as a lacrosse family, are cementing their legacy on the game. Sheehan, Wick and Coco each served as a team co-captain for at least one year at Georgetown; Tad was a co-captain for Rutgers as a redshirt senior in 2010; and Steele was a two-time co-captain at Virginia.
Wells, who plays for Johns Hopkins, and Covie, who attends Boston College, are entering their junior seasons. Each had a team-high point total as a sophomore. Shack, who was named to The Baltimore Sun’s All-Metro first team in 2013, has committed to Johns Hopkins.
“There is nothing like having [a Stanwick] on your team,” said Kim Simons, a former head coach of the Georgetown women’s team, who had All-Americans Sheehan, Wick and Coco. “They changed the mentality of our program. They brought a work ethic that was second to none.
The Girl With A Bow Who Shoots At The Wall
Sheehan started playing lacrosse at age 6 with her father in Roland Park. Wells Stanwick Sr. and his wife, Dori, had grown up in the Washington, D.C., area, where not many people played lacrosse at the time.
One thing Wells Sr. noticed about recreation league practices, Sheehan said, was that the players would get only 10-15 touches. He constructed a wall on the outside of the garage for his children to practice their stick skills. Wall ball is an integral part of the Stanwicks’ lacrosse regimen.
“The wall is as big as a goal,” Steele said. “My dad painted the outline of the goal, and we play within the wall. The main one was outside in the garage. There were walls down in the basement, but my mom would get mad and kick us out.”
Sheehan said she had practiced on the wall every day, shooting 50 right-handed shots and 50 left-handed ones, and then shoot behind the back. It had to be a clean shot and catch to count, she said, and she focused shots on bottom left and bottom right — using a trash can for accuracy.
“Dad was adamant about right- and left-handed skills,” she said. “He would make it fun. We’d go out for a Slurpee afterward. The boys would join in when we needed a body to guard us.”
Simons said Wells Sr. had attended his children’s games with a pad and a pen, writing down notes. Sheehan said the feedback she and her siblings had gotten from their father had taught them that they couldn’t learn everything about a game from the box score.
“You might have missed shots,” Sheehan said, “but he would say they were great shots. You might have scored a goal, but it wasn’t the right decision. He’d say: ‘You should have hit the person up top. Who will pass it to you if you are not a team player?’ ”
When Sheehan burst onto the Baltimore high school girls’ lacrosse scene in 1994, she had an immediate impact.
“We’d never seen anything like her,” said Wendy Kridel, head lacrosse coach and athletic director at Bryn Mawr and head coach of the 1999, 2003 and 2007 U.S. Under-19 Women’s Lacrosse World Championship teams. “She was a scoring machine and the hardest to game-plan for.”
When Sheehan and Wells Sr. visited the Georgetown campus, they scoured the environs for a wall to play on.
“I became known to the security guards as ‘the girl with a bow who shoots at the wall,’ “
Sheehan said. “I’d tape up the outline of a goal, and sometimes they’d leave it there, but I always brought the tape with me.”
All of the Stanwick girls wore bows in their hair when they played.
“I wasn’t crazy about the bows at first,” Simons said, “but it became an honor to wear one. They banged on the wall all the time. No one had done that before.”
Current Georgetown women’s coach Ricky Fried, who joined the program as an assistant coach when Wick was a senior, said that although Wick and Coco were different as people, they were similar on the field. They both incorporated extra lacrosse work into their academic schedules, Fried said, and teammates took notice.
Notre Dame Prep coach Mary Bartel said she felt blessed to have coached all the Stanwick girls and to have seen the shots Sheehan took and made, the passes Covie put right into another player’s stick, Wick’s amazing dodges that ended in goals, and Coco’s ability to see the field and orchestrate beautiful plays.
“They did it all unselfishly,” Bartel said, “and they did it under pressure.”
Making your teammates look good is a major tenet of the Stanwick way. Wells Sr. stressed that no one person would win the game of lacrosse, Sheehan said. Wall ball is another family tradition, which was passed down to each Stanwick player.
“My favorite vision of Covie is seeing her on the wall teaching a teammate about stick work, ball control and focus,” Boston College coach Acacia Walker said. “It was last year, and she had no idea how long I stood and watched, catching and throwing until [she was] blue in the face.”
The Fire That Burns Inside Them
Shriver said Tad had been a trailblazer, choosing to commit to Rutgers after Sheehan, Wick and Coco had chosen Georgetown. One of the top 15 leading scorers in Boys’ Latin history, Tad came back to the school to help coach the varsity team when Shack was a freshman. Now, Tad is training to be a Navy Seal.
Jim Stagnitta, who coached Tad at Rutgers and is now the coach of the Arcadia men’s team, said Tad’s decision to play for the Scarlet Knights had been important for the program.
“Most kids look south for schools,” Stagnitta said. “It’s rare to see them go north. He chose a path so different from his peers. Tad was a frontline recruit from Boys’ Latin — to have that kind of pedigree was huge for us.”
After Tad had committed to Rutgers, Georgetown came back into the picture. Stagnitta said he had sat in the Stanwick living room and told Tad and his parents that he would understand if Tad had a change of heart.
“The parents looked at me like I was crazy,” Stagnitta said. “His mom told me: ‘Tad is committed. He made his decision. He’s all in.’ ”
When it comes to their mettle as lacrosse players and as people, the Stanwicks are all in. They all have a relentless drive — academically and athletically — to be the best, Stagnitta said. On the surface, he said, the Stanwicks are laid-back, which belies the fire that burns inside them.
“Each one is better than the next,” Stagnitta said, “and Shack may be the best of them all. I’ve done this for 25 years at the college level and have never run into a family like this one.”
Stagnitta said Tad had made a valuable contribution to the Scarlet Knights during a critical rebuilding time for the program.
“If you look at Tad, you’d never think that he is as tough and as much of a competitor [as he is],” Stagnitta said. “The things he’s overcome — he had to play immediately against the toughest schedule in the country. We needed him to carry the ball as a 165-pound freshman. He took a beating.”
Steele said Wells Sr. and Dori deserved 100 percent of the credit for their children’s success.
“They taught us to be respectful and gracious,” Steele said. “We are a strong Catholic family. All of us went to Cathedral. It’s about how you treat people. Skills and athleticism will only take you so far.”
Steele said everyone in the family tried to help each other play lacrosse better. They talked about game situations at the dinner table — techniques and strategies he still uses playing for the Ohio Machine of Major League Lacrosse. Steele was also selected to the U.S. Men’s National Team for the 2014 Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships.
“The great ones like Steele all have a common denominator,” said Jack Crawford, who was Steele’s coach at Loyola Blakefield. “They have a mindset like Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. Steele was always analyzing the game. The greater the understanding of the game, the more dangerous they are.”
On a frigid January afternoon, the winter sun was setting on Homewood Field, where the Johns Hopkins women’s lacrosse team was practicing. Steele, an assistant coach for the team, was standing on the outskirts of the scrimmage with his hands behind his back in a dark jacket and hood, observing the action with a critical eye — in much the same way his father has watched him play.
During the summer of 2013, Blue Jays women’s lacrosse coach Janine Tucker interviewed nine assistant candidates without any luck. She was speaking with her son Ryan, who plays at Virginia, one night during dinner, and he talked about how Steele was a coach on the field, who could see things happening before anyone else did. Tucker said Ryan had suggested she hire Steele.
Tucker had coached some of the Stanwick girls at camps, and she said Steele had hustled from his practices to watch his sisters play and support them. She felt he had a true respect for the women’s game, she said, and had dedicated his career to making his teammates look good.
“I wanted my program to operate like a family,” Tucker said. “He’s a special person. Not all men are wired to coach women well.”
After graduating from Virginia, Steele had a conversation with Wick and founded Stanwick Lacrosse LLC — camps and clinics that develop a player’s skill set, knowledge of the game and work ethic.
“I didn’t know what I wanted to do after college,” Steele said. “Coach Tucker called, and I just laughed at first. But my sisters had prepared me for the women’s game.”
Tucker said Steele was having a blast with the women’s team. Blue Jays men’s coach Dave Pietramala said he enjoyed having Steele as part of the school’s lacrosse program.
“It’s a relief not to have to game-plan against Steele anymore,” Pietramala said. “I need to get some information from him. I want to pick his brain for his favorite drills.”
Steele now gets to watch Wells practice from his office in the Cordish Center. He will also get to see Shack, the No. 1 lacrosse recruit in the country coming out of Boys’ Latin, and Wells together as Blue Jays in 2015.
“Wells is a very mature kid, very coachable.” Pietramala said. “The older [Stanwicks] taught the younger ones what the expectations are.”
Wells, Covie and Shack are continuing the family tradition of lacrosse excellence this season. With Sheehan and Wick now having children of their own, there will be more Stanwicks carrying lacrosse sticks during the coming years.
“There is a Stanwick brand,” said Kridel, who coached Coco on her U-19 team in 2003. “You know what you are going to get with them. They work hard and they are selfless, and they set the tone in practice. I run into them at Starbucks. They are all super nice people and fun to be around. They walk the talk.”
The Stanwicks still play some three-on-three pickup games when everyone is home, Steele said.
“We don’t check or shoot hard,” Steele said. “Wells is usually the instigator. The older girls are a little rusty. The younger guys are pretty sharp. We have fun.”
Collectively, the Stanwicks have amassed an array of achievements on the lacrosse field, from All-America honors to prestigious awards to national championships. They have combined to tally more than 1,000 goals and assists and have helped win hundreds of games at the high school and collegiate levels — and yet those who know the Stanwicks say all of these accomplishments don’t eclipse who they are as people.
“The Stanwicks bring a precision and athleticism to lacrosse that makes it exciting,” Bartel said. “They are polite, respectful, engaging young men and women, who are great role models. Their humility rivals their talent.”

Hopkins upsets Syracuse 16-15 in lacrosse tournament
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Wells Stanwick and Shack Stanwick combined for 12 points to lift Johns Hopkins to a 16-15 upset of second-seeded Syracuse in the NCAA quarterfinals Sunday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
Both Stanwick brothers finished with four goals and two assists and Hopkins halted a four-game losing streak in the quarterfinal round. Wells Stanwick is a senior attackman and Shack Stanwick is a freshman attackman.
Goalie Eric Schneider made 15 saves for the Blue Jays (11-6), who advanced to the semifinals for the first time since 2008 and the 29th time in school history.
Attackman Ryan Brown had two goals and two assists for Hopkins, which will race No. 6 Maryland next Saturday in the Final Four in Philadelphia. Maryland beat North Carolina 14-7 in the second quarterfinal.
“What a great game for the sport of lacrosse. It felt like old times — Hopkins and Syracuse. This used to be the last game of the year and it played like one of those games,” Blue Jays coach Dave Pietramala said. “I’m thrilled for our men. I’m not sure words can describe how proud I am of them for getting back to the Final Four.”
Attackman Kevin Rice scored three goals and had four assists to lead Syracuse (13-3), which was seeking a 28th semifinal appearance.
Attackman Dylan Donohue had three goals and two assists for the Orange, who had a five-game winning streak snapped. Midfielder Nicky Galasso and attackman Randy Staats both had a hat trick.
Trailing 7-6 at halftime, Hopkins took over the game with a 4-0 run over a five-minute stretch of the third quarter. Shack Stanwick scored off a pass from Wells Stanwick to start the decisive stretch and the younger brother returned the favor a few minutes later.
Wells Stanwick closed the period with a spectacular individual move — driving from behind the net, diving to the crease and flipping a shot past Syracuse keeper Bobby Wardwell (14 saves) to give the Blue Jays an 11-8 lead.
“You hope your seniors are going to be the ones that set the standard in this kind of game and Wells certainly did that at the offensive end,” Pietramala said. “In my opinion, he’s been the most under-appreciated player in the country this year.”
Rice scored 43 seconds into the fourth period to cut the Syracuse deficit to two, but Hopkins responded with four consecutive goals to equal its largest lead of the game at 14-10 with 5:34 remaining. The Blue Jays led by four with 1:46 to go, but the Orange scored three times in the final minute.
Rice scored an extra-man goal with 23 seconds left to make it a one-goal game, but freshman Hunter Moreland won the ensuing faceoff for Johns Hopkins, which was able to finish off the remaining time.
“My hat is off to the Blue Jays. I thought they played an excellent game today,” Syracuse coach John Desko said. “I’m proud of my players for coming back the way they did. A lot of teams would have looked up at the scoreboard and said the game was over. With 30 seconds to go, we still had a shot to tie it up.”
Hopkins, which has averaged 15.1 goals during its seven-game winning streak, got even for a 13-10 regular-season loss to Syracuse.

Orange Runs Out of Time in 16-15 Loss to Hopkins
Story LinksANNAPOLIS, Md. – No. 2 seed Syracuse (13-3) scored three goals in 33 seconds late in the fourth quarter to pull to within one, but ultimately ran out of time as Johns Hopkins (11-6) defeated the Orange, 16-15, at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium Sunday, May 17 in the quarterfinal round of the 2015 NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse Championship.
In the 13th postseason matchup between the two most storied programs in college lacrosse it was fitting the game came down to the final seconds.
Trailing 16-12 with less than a minute left, SU’s Kevin Rice and Henry Schoonmaker scored 22 seconds apart to close the gap to 16-14 with 34 seconds remaining.
Following Schoonmaker’s goal, Hunter Moreland moved early on the faceoff. It was the Blue Jays’ third faceoff violation of the half. The penalty resulted in an extra-man opportunity for the Orange, which Rice capitalized on to a make it 16-15 with 23 ticks left on the clock.
Moreland won the faceoff after Rice’s man-up goal, but threw an errant pass. Brandon Mullins collected the loose ball for Syracuse with less than 10 seconds left, but the Orange could not generate another offensive opportunity before the buzzer sounded.
“My hat is off to the Blue Jays. I thought they played an excellent game today,” Orange head coach John Desko said. “I’m proud of our guys for coming back the way they did. I think a lot of teams would have looked up at the scoreboard and said the game was over. There was 30 seconds to go or so and we still had a shot to tie it up. I thought we played with a lot of heart. That being said, we’re obviously disappointed that we aren’t playing next week.”
Rice led all scorers with seven points on three goals and four assists, while teammates Dylan Donahue, Nicky Galasso and Randy Staats each had three goals. Donahue and Galasso both added two assists to finish with five points apiece.
Brothers Wells and Shack Stanwick both had four goals and two assists to pace the Blue Jays. Ryan Brown chipped in as well for Hopkins, scoring twice and passing out two assists.
It was Wells Stanwick that fueled the Blue Jays early. He scored three of the game’s first four goals, but the Orange got consecutive tallies from Galasso and Staats 1:18 apart late in the first period to even game, 3-3, after the opening 15 minutes.
Joel Tinney and John Crawley both found the cage in the first three minutes of the second quarter to put the Blue Jays back in front before Donahue finished a Rice pass at the 10:22 mark.
Donahue’s strike ignited a 4-1 Orange run that gave SU its only lead of the game, 7-6, at the half.
The Blue Jays responded by scoring the first four goals of the second half, including two by Shack Stanwick off passes from his brother, to open up a 10-7 advantage with seven minutes left in the third.
Then once again Donahue halted the Hopkins scoring spurt. The redshirt junior notched his third goal of the day, and 50th of the season, with 6:15 to go in the period to get SU back within two, 10-8.
After Donahue’s score, Wells Stanwick stole the momentum back for the Blue Jays. The senior charged from the end line and stuffed the ball past Orange goalie Bobby Wardwell as time expired to push the lead back to three (11-8) heading into the fourth quarter.
Stanwick’s goal sparked a 5-2 Hopkins run that resulted in a 15-10 advantage with 3:50 to play in regulation.
Galasso and Staats both scored unassisted goals for Syracuse before an empty-net goal by Brown at the 1:46 mark made the score 16-12 and set the stage for the frantic finish.
Wardwell tied his career high with 14 saves, while Hopkins goalie Eric Schneider finished with 15 stops. Schneider totaled nine saves in the first half to help the Blue Jays gain the lead.
Ben Williams won 22-of-34 (.642) faceoffs, including 11 of the 13 draws in the fourth quarter, to aid the Syracuse rally.
In addition to its advantage in faceoff wins, the Orange also outshot the Blue Jays (45-44) and picked up 34 ground balls to 28 for the Blue Jays.
Hopkins will face the winner of Sunday’s second quarterfinal between Maryland and North Carolina in the national semifinals Saturday, May 23 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
Game Notes: Rice finished his career 12th on the SU all-time scoring with 222 points (96 goals, 126 assists) … Donahue became the fifth player in Orange history to record a 50-goal season, joining Gary Gait (2), Tom Korrie (2), Tom Abbott and Tom Marechek. Donahue’s 50 goals are the most since Marechek had 53 in 1991 … Williams picked up 10 ground balls against the Blue Jays and finished second behind Sam Bassett (164 in 2000) on the Orange single-season record list with 153 ground balls … Syracuse is now 27-4 all-time in NCAA quarterfinal games.
Hopkins 16 – Syracuse 15: Orange Upset in NCAA Quarterfinals
Syracuse struggled to start the game going down 3-1 with just over five minutes to go in the first quarter. All three, first period goals for Hopkins came off the crosse of Wells Stanwick who picked up the first quarter hat trick. Throughout the first half, the Syracuse defense looked shaky. The Orange long poles were slow on the slides and looked to be ball watching a bit.
Coach Desko expressed his frustration with the defense after the game: “We didn’t see anything different than what we had been seeing. We just hesitated a few times. I was really disappointed.”
Henry Schoonmker put up the first goal for SU in a man-up situation. It was just his third extra man goal of the season and 16th goal of the year. The Orange finished the first quarter tied at three after back-to-back goals from Nicky Galasso and Randy Staats. Galasso finished with three goals and two assists on the day, another great performance in a year where he has really elevated his game. In fact, Galasso was one of four Syracuse players to finish with a hat trick.
There were several story lines coming out of the game, but early on it was clear that both goalies were on point. Embattled goalie Eric Schneider finished his day with 15 saves and 15 goals against while Bobby Wardwell picked up 14 saves and 16 goals against. I thought that Schneider had a more impressive day, just stonewalling the Syracuse attack over and over again. Syracuse put 30 of its 45 shots on cage while Hopkins placed 30 of its 44 on net.
The Orange would not lead until just prior to the end of the first half on a Dylan Donahue goal to make it 7-6. Ryan Simmons picked up his sixth goal of the year in the second period, receiving a pass from Kevin Rice as Simmons cut down the middle of the box (5-5).
Just after the Simmons goal, we got a scary moment when Nicky Galasso released the ball on a pass and got hammered by Hopkins defenseman John Kelly. The hit came high and late, and somehow the referees deemed it unworthy of a flag. I would have loved to hear the explanation they gave Desko after the next whistle because at worst that hit could have been an ejection. It took several moments for Galasso to return to his feet and he would return to the game. I don’t want to harp on the issue too much because it unfairly takes away from the game, but this was easily the worst refereed match Syracuse has been a part of this season.
The lead didn’t hold for long, however, as Shack Stanwick dodged up the crease and rolled back on his defender for the goal (7-7). The Stanwick brothers, pulled in four goals and two assists each. Less than a minute later, after a Sean Young penalty for delay of game, Patrick Frasier got it from Ryan Brown and had plenty of time and room to set up for a big, man-up goal and to win the lead back for Hopkins (8-7 JHU). That was how the day went for the Syracuse defense. The slides were late, when they came, the movement was slow and the defensive awareness was just not there; it looked like SU was playing with two close defenders instead of three. Defensively, this could not have been more of a disappointing way to end the season.
26 seconds following the Frasier goal, Hopkins was at it again. Holden Cattoni dodged from the top of the box, down the right alley and got a bounce shot past Bobby Wardwell (10-7 JHU).
Dylan Donahue put a stop to the four-goal run from Hopkins and picked up his fiftieth goal of the season. Donahue moved from behind the cage up to the goal line extended and managed to tip toe around his defender before long arming it around Schneider (10-8 JHU). Hopkins would manage one more in the quarter. Wells Stanwick dodged from back right, moved up towards GLE and dove up and around the crease getting his shot to go on Wardwell as time expired in the period (11-8 JHU). From my angle, it looked like Wells left his feet and leaped into the crease prior to the goal crossing the line. Additionally, I did not think that he was pushed in. if you agree with me, then you agree that the goal should not have counted due to a crease violations, but the referees called it a good goal. Remember, this was a one-goal game.
It took just 43 second into the fourth quarter for Kevin Rice to fire a wicked shot from about 12 yards out going high-to-high on Schneider (11-9 JHU). Rice would finish the day with three goals and four assists, and today’s tallies give him a 31-game goal scoring streak, the second longest in the nation. Nevertheless, the defense gave up a shot to Holden Cattoni about 10 yards off the crease and gave him time to set up for another huge shot (12-9 JHU). Next up it was Mike Messina getting tripped up by the net behind the cage as he tried to catch up to Cody Radziewicz. Radziewicz would take advantage by coming right up and around the crease and having all day to fire on Bobby (13-9 JHU).
After an answer from Randy Staats, the turnover problems appeared once again. On a groundball in the back right corner of the box, Syracuse recovered the loose ball but couldn’t hang on to it. Ryan Brown scooped it up and hit Shack Stanwick sitting on the crease unguarded for the bank in (14-10 JHU). Hopkins and Syracuse traded goals began trading goals, leading to an empty net Ryan Brown score with Wardwell out playing defense (16-12 JHU).
Down by four with a 1:46 to go in the game, it looked like the Syracuse season would be ending shortly. But as frustrating as this team might be, one thing that they do not lack is heart. Off of an SU timeout Galasso found Rice on the crease for an easy, quick goal with :56 seconds to go (16-13 JHU). Then it was Schoonmaker at the 0:34 mark (16-14). Suddenly the Orange were down by two with just over half a minute to play, you can never say never with this program. Hopkins received a faceoff violation with on the ensuing faceoff, its third of the half putting Syracuse on the 30 second man-up. Eleven seconds into the EMO, Kevin Rice found the back of the net on an assist from Derek DeJoe (16-15 JHU).
After looking dead in the water just minutes prior, Syracuse stormed back to be within one goal of the Jays. However, the comeback would fall short as the Orange managed to bungle the ball in its defensive zone, unable to effectively clear the ball. It was an unfortunate ending to a season which had so much promise.
At the faceoff X, Ben Williams took 34 draws, tied for second for most faceoffs attempted in a game. He finished the game with 22 wins, the fourth time this season has 20+ wins in a game. His first season will end with him having 256 faceoff wins, the second most faceoff wins in a single season for a Syracuse player; an unreal first year for a guy that went basically unrecruited coming out of Minnesota.
What is so bothersome about this game is that I believe it is the one area that killed this team. Wardwell played exceptional in net. Williams was his usual self at the X. Staats, Donahue, Galasso, and Rice all had very good games. It simply goes back to the defense. There were too many opportunities on the crease, too many feeds to the inside, too many missed slides or poor slides. The multiple offensive threats from Hopkins just exposed the Syracuse D for what it was, a good, two-man defense, but missing a solid third long-pole.90,000 voices from the past. On the history and theory of the genre
Hopelessness, alienation, claustrophobia, a sense of fatalism are the key words for noir. For all this, among other things, the black and white, almost graphic style of films works, creating what can be called noir-look – so recognizable and characteristic that it just begs to appear in the drawn graphic series (which was effectively done by the creator of the comic “Sin City” Frank Miller). A favorite noir trick is half-lighting the protagonist’s face, creating the effect of a collision of light and darkness, which can be interpreted as a visual embodiment of eternal moral dilemmas.Noir loves the streets at night, the play of shadows on the walls of half-lit rooms and, following German Expressionism (another predecessor of noir), prefers vertical lines to horizontal lines. As Paul Schroeder correctly pointed out, in noir, compositional takes precedence over physical action: directors are more likely to build compositions around the main performer than allow the actor to control the scene through physical effort. Vivid visual plastic is one of the main reasons for the ignorance of noir by American critics, until the 70s, which were fixated on the sociological aspect of cinema and with the snobbery of category B films, to which noir often belonged (suffice it to recall The Dishonest Deal (1948) by Anthony Mann or Kiss Me Death (1955) by Robert Aldrich).Noir demonstrated the conventionality of social life, offering a special intonation, tone, manner, style. With their recognizable style, film noir offered to revise the author’s concept, because, as Paul Schroeder noted in the same article, the author’s concept implies how the directors differ from each other, and the criticism of cinema noir dwells on what they have in common.
Common to noir, for example, was the low-key lighting technique, in which the figures of the actors were simultaneously illuminated by strong rays from above, which created black shadows, and soft, diffused light from the front (the source was placed in front of the camera), which made it possible to accentuate the shadows even more , fill them in, make them more contrasting and expressive.Thus, the low-key technique confronted light and darkness, darkened faces, rooms, urban landscape and created the effect of mystery, uncertainty, danger. Varying the overhead lighting (it could be at a 45 degree angle, or it could be placed behind the actors’ backs), as well as eliminating the front light (which creates a patch of darkness), gave different lighting possibilities. For example, solely thanks to the lighting in the film “The Postman Always Rings Twice” there is a shadow in the form of a grate on the wall of the room in the scene when the heroes who committed the murder, under pressure from the prosecutor, begin to blame each other.No less metaphorical is the first scene in The Assassins, based on the story by Ernest Hemingway, where two killers who came to the town to kill the traitor Anderson named Swede (Bert Lancaster), thanks to night shooting and special lighting, look like two ominous figures of imminent fate, suddenly emerged from the darkness.
Lighting made it possible to emphasize the impenetrability of the faces of femme fatale. Noir doesn’t like super-close-ups of the face, but when he uses them, he does it with mathematical precision.For example, in Double Insurance, a super close-up of Barbara Stenwick’s heroine appears in the scene when she makes it clear to her accomplice in the murder that she will not allow him to leave the game. There is one super close-up of the face in Killers, when the femme fatale (Ava Gardner) meets the insurance agent leading the murder investigation at a restaurant and sets the assassins against him. A close-up allows you to look into the eyes of a woman killer, it shows that evil is total, since it occupies the entire screen, and it is tempting, since it lurks in such beautiful eyes.

Rita Hayworth is the first princess of HollywoodMargarita Carmen Cancino is the real name of the actress we know as Rita Hayworth. She was born in New York to a Spanish flamenco dancer and chorus girl.
From the age of 12, Rita began dancing with her father in nightclubs and Spanish dance shows. Rita was barely 17 when she was spotted by a Fox representative and helped her secure a contract. Cited in the credits as Rita Cansino, she played wordless exotic dancers in three films, and in the fourth she spoke for the first time.Progress was evident, but everything changed at the studio – management, working methods and even the name. Darryl Zanuck, head of the newly minted 20th Century Fox film company, hated loafers and losers. After watching the newly edited film “Letter Garcia” (1936), in which Barbara Stanwick played the main role, he demanded that all scenes with Cansino be cut out and immediately expelled Rita with the verdict-diagnosis “hopeless.”
A year later, Rita married Edward Charles Judson, a very unusual person with a reputation for Hollywood Monte Cristo.
Everyone knew him, but no one knew where he got the money from (it was rumored that his car sales business was just a cover). Rita was not embarrassed by such rumors – dark personalities were not a novelty for her since her performances in Hollywood nightclubs. Sober calculation prevailed: Ed Judson promised to open the doors of the Columbia Pictures studio for her. The husband kept his word, but demanded very serious sacrifices from his wife. It was he who suggested that she call herself Hayworth, slightly changing her mother’s maiden name, and take lessons in stage speech.It was he who made her dye her hair a red color, highlighted on the forehead and becoming darker on the back of the head. But the main thing is that it was Ed who insisted on the decisive metamorphosis that the face of Rita Cansino had to undergo in order to fully justify the new name and image. It took over a year. Each week, Rita attended excruciating electrolysis sessions to lift her hairline three-quarters of an inch and refine her forehead line. Every day, she moisturized naughty tight curls, grandfather’s inheritance, with special oils, washed with the best shampoos and dyed to remove all traces of Spanish origin.Finally, she had to reshape her nose at the famous plastic surgeon Joel Pressman. Thus was born the golden-haired Rita Hayworth.
In all its glory, Rita Hayworth flashed only a few years later. After the films “Strawberry Blonde” (1941), “Blood and Sand” (1941), “Cover Girl” (1944), she gained success and popularity. In addition, the actress not only played, but also danced. But fate cheated her with her voice: if the script required singing, then other actresses did it for Hayworth.Hayworth’s real fame was brought by the love melodrama “Gilda” directed by Charles Widor (1946).
She became the indisputable goddess of Hollywood Olympus and the erotic idol of America. Who does not know, so it was she – Rita Hayworth – the first to perform a striptease on the screen! True, the striptease consisted in the fact that Rita very, very slowly removed long gloves from her hands. But she did it in such a way that the men just went crazy.
August 11, 1941her photo in a swimsuit (courage at that time unheard of!) appeared on the cover of a respectable magazine Life.
From now on, a snapshot of a half-naked beauty was no longer considered scandalous in the United States – it was equated with works of art of the Renaissance.
Hayworth was the most influential trendsetter, and Look magazine named her the title of most stylishly dressed Hollywood star. She has also been the face of Max Factor campaigns multiple times.
In 1942, Hayworth divorced Judson to marry Victor Matthew, with whom she played in “My Girlfriend Sal,” but … this was not destined to happen. When Orson Welles, the future second husband of Rita, saw her on the screen, he immediately issued: “This woman will be my wife.”
Rita didn’t want to get to know him. He called her for six hours without interruption, and she did not answer the phone. Wells then decided on an open assault: from six in the evening until six in the morning he sat on the porch of Rita Hayworth’s house and sometimes even fell asleep on the steps.Neither onlookers nor reporters were able to force him to leave his post. Finally, Rita could not resist his pressure. She went downstairs and accepted a marriage proposal from Orson. In 1943, there was no woman in Hollywood more beautiful than Rita Hayworth and a man more talented than Orson Welles. However, after several months of violent, incinerating passion, Orson’s wife began to pall, and he returned to work. Orson was not happy to hear that his wife was expecting a baby. passing by the couch where he was conceived, he often said: “This is the place where I lost control of myself.”And he waited for an opportunity to run away from his wife and daughter, who was named Rebeca. The failure of their only collaboration, Lady from Shanghai, for which Hayworth had to shave off his luxurious red hair and dye his hair blonde, only precipitated the breakup.
Eastern prince Ali Khan became Rita’s third husband. Not even half a year had passed since parting with Wells, and Rita found herself in the grip of a new and very ardent love. They got married in 1949.
And it was Rita Hayworth who became the first Hollywood actress to receive the title of a real princess (Despite the fact that everyone considers Grace Kelly as such).But the princess was not fabulous, but quite real, moreover, oriental. For three years, Rita seemed to be turned off from life, left Hollywood. Once the brightest star in Hollywood sat within four walls: no work, no friends. The marriage did not last long and even the daughter Yasmin, born in this marriage, did not affect their relationship with Ali Khan. Rita divorced him in 51st.
Her fourth husband, sugary songwriter Dick Haymes, who was called “Mr. Sin” in Hollywood, wasted her money and gave her black eyes.
“There is no sadder story in the world,” said the famous Orson Welles, her ex-husband number two. “This story with her father is just awful, and it was no better further. Her first husband was a pimp in the literal sense of the word. understand how she felt then. ” The marriage did not last long, two years later she and Haymes divorced.
They did not want to see Rita in Hollywood, they were not offered roles because of her age. At this time, Hayworth meets producer Jim Hill, and marries him.Rita’s fifth husband gives her a role in his film “At a separate table”, which was nominated for “Oscar”. This marriage also did not last long, the actress began to drink.
Despite the fact that during her film career, Rita Hayworth starred in more than 60 films, the actress herself was never nominated for an Oscar. In 1964, she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in the drama Circus World, where she starred in a duet with John Wayne. But she was not awarded the prize – apparently, her acting was not in the taste of film critics.However, in 1977 Rita Hayworth won the National Screen Heritage Award.
The memory problems that began with Hayworth in the 1970s, doctors initially associated with alcohol addiction and were not immediately able to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease. Difficulty memorizing roles led to a gradual decline in career and, ultimately, to retirement from the cinema. In July 1981, Hayworth’s condition deteriorated markedly, and the Los Angeles Supreme Court, considering that the actress could no longer take care of herself, assigned her to the custody of her daughter Yasmin, who took care of her in the last years of her life.
Shortly before her death, at one of the moments of enlightenment, Rita confesses: “Nobody loved me. Nobody. Everyone needed my money and my fame, but not me. Only Orson loved me, and even then not for long. And I loved so much. his…”. In May 1987, Rita Hayworth passed away in her Manhattan apartment.

George Orson Welles (eng. George Orson Welles; May 6, 1915 – October 10, 1985) – American film director, actor, screenwriter who worked in theater, radio and cinema. His films are marked by ingenuity in technical solutions. The director’s most notable films  are Citizen Kane, The Seal of Evil, The Trial and The Lady of Shanghai. Wells is ranked 16th on the American Film Institute’s list of Greatest Male Legends on the Screen of Classic Hollywood Cinema.
In 2002, Wells was named the greatest director of all time in two British Film Institute surveys of directors and critics   the most famous director in the history of cinema  .
The future American film director was born on May 6, 1915 in the city of Kenosha (Wisconsin, USA), located on the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan.Parents had nothing to do with cinema: his father, Richard Head, was a self-taught inventor, and his mother, Beatrice Ives, was a well-known pianist in secular circles. Since childhood, Orson has been distinguished by outstanding, multifaceted abilities. Already at the age of ten, he took part in school performances, and also actively contributed to theatrical life behind the stage (he made and painted sets, directed rehearsals). In addition, the guy was an excellent musician, magician, and in the knowledge of Shakespeare’s plays, hardly anyone of his age could compete with him.
At the same time, he was seriously engaged in painting and in 1931 he went to Ireland to sketch. After acquiring a donkey and a wagon, sixteen-year-old Orson was left practically without a livelihood and spent the night under this wagon for some time. With the onset of cold weather, this lifestyle had to be abandoned. Wells leaves for Dublin, where he spends his last money on a ticket to the Gate Theater. It turned out, however, that by doing so he pulled out a lucky ticket: at the play, the future director meets his classmate, who introduces him to the director of the theater.Assessing the talent of the young man, he offers Orson the first role in his life in a professional theater.
After Ireland, Orson moves on to Spain. There, the young man tries himself in a writing craft – he writes detective stories and essays.
In the years that followed, Wells returned to America. With the help of a close friend and colleague, the writer Thornton Wilder, he gets a job as an actor in a traveling theater company. And on April 14, 1936, the premiere of Macbeth directed by Orson Welles took place at the Lafayette Theater in Harlem.This director’s work was marked by a loud scandal and caused mixed reviews from critics and viewers.
While working at the theater, Orson Welles met actress Virginia Nicholson, they got married in 1934.
After a number of productions, including the acclaimed play based on Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, which amazed audiences and critics with its innovative approach, and the legendary radio show based on the novel by H.G. Wells, The War of the Worlds, the young director showed interest in Hollywood, where Welltes insisted on a contract giving him creative freedom.However, his work has caused disapproval here.
At the end of 1947, Wells left Hollywood and settled in Europe, as he put it, “for freedom,” but later returned to the United States on several occasions. Orson Welles played his first role in Europe in the American-Italian film Black Magic. The film was released in 1949.
Since the 1970s, Orson Welles has actively pursued his career as an actor, and also continued to write scripts and made two documentaries based on his past work: “How Othello Was Filmed” (1978) and How The Trial Was Filmed “(1981 ).In 1975, Wells was honored with the American Film Institute’s Distinguished Service in Cinematography (Oscar Honorary).
In 1979, Orson Welles tried to create his own show and even directed the pilot of The Orson Welles Show, but the broadcast did not get through. In the late 1970s, Orson starred in a series of wine commercials.
Wells continued filming until 1985. On October 10, 1985, Wells gave his last interview on The Merv Griffin Show. Two hours later, he died of a heart attack at his home in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California at the age of seventy  (the same day as Yul Brynner).The remains of Orson Welles were cremated, and the ashes were buried in the El Recreo estate (in the Spanish Ronda), which belonged to his longtime acquaintance, the bullfighter Antonio Ordonez  .
Theater work and radio performances
In the spring of 1946, Wells staged his version of Around the World in 80 Days (based on the novel of the same name by Jules Verne), which was filmed in 1956 by director Michael Anderson and starring David Niven.
Wells then began producing two new radio shows, The Mercury Summer Theater for CBS and Orson Welles Commentaries for ABC.Their sensational radio play based on H. Wells’ novel “The War of the Worlds”, in the style of radio reports, caused panic among the audience, forcing part of the audience to believe in the reality of the Martian invasion. Orson Welles Commentaries provided political commentary on events on the radio.
In 1935, Orson Welles directed the first amateur film, Hearts of Age ( The Hearts of Age ). Wells himself and his wife starred in the film.
In 1938, Orson Welles directed the silent buffoonery film Too Much Johnson, three movie novels intended to be shown during the theatrical production of the comedy of the same name.After the failure of the premiere of the play, Wells refused to complete the film and put it on the shelf. For a long time it was believed that in 1970 the film was irretrievably lost in a fire in the house of the director  , but in 2008 the positive of the film was discovered in Italy, and then restored by American and Dutch restorers. Too Much Johnson was scheduled to premiere on October 9, 2013    .
In 2000, the American Film Institute released the Top 100 American Films list, in which Citizen Kane was ranked first at  .
The Magnificent Ambersons
The second film by Orson Welles, The Magnificent Ambersons, mercilessly cut by the producers and even partially re-shot, did not become a timeless masterpiece, but left the invariably recognizable style of Orson Welles, not subject to any studio restrictions. The film was directed for RKO-Radio Pictures in 1942 and told the story of a young George Amberson, who got a lot of money after his father’s death.
The film was nominated for the 1943 Academy Awards in four categories, but did not receive any statuettes.After his role in The Magnificent Ambersons, Orson Welles in 1943 was invited to play one of the roles in the film A Journey into Fear. It was this role that became the starting point of the career of a young actor.
Wells’ third and final film for RCO-Radio Pictures was released in 1946. Orson Welles agreed to some concessions to RCO-Radio Pictures, the film was called Outlander and told about the war criminals of World War II after its end.
The film is set in 1946. Mr. Wilson, a member of the War Crimes Commission, is on the hunt for Nazi criminal Franz Kindler, who came to the United States and lives in Connecticut. After receiving documents in the name of Charles Rankin, Kindler finds work at the university and marries Mary Longstreet, daughter of Supreme Court Justice Adam Longstreet. Wilson must convince Rankin’s wife that her husband is a war criminal. Although Outlander made a profit at the box office, Wells’ contract with RKO expired and was not renewed.
Lady from Shanghai
The feature film “Lady from Shanghai”, which began filming in late 1946 and ended in 1947, was released in France on December 24, 1947, and in the United States on June 9, 1948. In one of the main roles (as Elsa) Wells starred his second wife, Rita Hayworth. “Lady from Shanghai” was the young director’s first for Columbia Pictures. Most of the film’s scenes were filmed in Acapulco and San Francisco. After the first editing of the film, Wells approved the soundtrack and prepared the film for screening.
Upon release, the film was a huge success in Europe, but failed in the United States, although Lady from Shanghai was later recognized as one of Orson Welles’s finest films by most American critics.
Following The Lady of Shanghai, Wells decided to direct a film about French serial killer Henri Landru. For the main role, he decided to invite the English actor and director Charles Chaplin. But Chaplin said that films with his participation always direct himself – without any exceptions. He bought out the script and rewrote it thoroughly, leaving Wells as the author of the idea.The film “Monsieur Verdu” directed by Chaplin was released in 1947.
In 1948, Orson Welles was approved by Republic Pictures to direct Macbeth. The film was more like a theatrical production, due to a small budget, the film used decorations made of cardboard and papier-mâché. Republic Pictures was not preoccupied with the film’s soundtrack, and Wells took the initiative and traveled to Europe to modify and re-record the soundtracks. Wells soon returned to America, where he edited and cut the film at the request of Republic Pictures.The full film was released in the late 1970s.
“The Immortal Story”
In 1966, after moving to France, Wells directed the film Immortal Story (Eternal Story) for French television, based on the story of the same name by Karen Blixen. In 1968, work was completed on an hour-long film, which, after the first screening, gained popularity among the French public.
“F as Fake” and documentaries
Wells released this last feature film in 1975.Wells worked on it in between work on other films. The picture was a pseudo-documentary tape and was both an autobiography and an ironic study of all kinds of manifestations of the phenomenon of falsification.
During the filming of F is Fake, Wells used an authentic documentary about Elmira de Horey (the greatest master of art forgery), re-editing the material, making meaningful stills and mimic dialogues. Wells played himself; sitting at the editing table or with friends, he did not stop his monologue.The result was a kind of synthesis of a feature and documentary film with an open narrative structure, which consisted of concentric circles revolving around the topic of falsification.
After the end of Citizen Kane, the director planned to create a film adaptation of the life of Christ, in which he himself would play Jesus.
The director tried to tackle the film “Don Quixote” several times, starting from the mid-1950s. He planned to bring the action of the film to modern times, but he could not find enough funds to complete the film  .
After working in France, in 1967 Orson Welles began filming The Depth, based on Charles Williams’ novel The Pool of the Dead. But work on the film was stopped after the death of Lawrence Harvey, a performer of one of the key roles, long before the end of filming. Later, the surviving film materials were edited and shown by the Munich Film Museum.
Upon his return to the United States, Wells begins filming his new film, The Other Side of the Wind, which was scripted in the late 1960s.In 1972, Wells himself announced that the film was about 96% complete. But the project was never completed and the film did not premiere.
From 1980 to 1982, Wells directed The Dreamers, based on two short stories by Karen Blixen, but the project was never completed. Between 1982 and 1983, Wells recorded his voice for the heavy metal rock band Manowar. Wells donated his voice to the short television series Crime Scenes and the hero of the television series Private Detective Magnum.His last film role was an appearance in the television series “Moonlight Detective Agency” and the voice of Unicron in the cartoon “Transformers”.
Wells is characterized by the frequent use of mirrors and shadows.
- “I would like to present you a film about fraud, falsification, and lies. Any story, whether it is told in the marketplace, by the fireplace or in the movies, is almost certainly a lie, but I promise you it will be different this time.Everything you hear from us over the next hour will be true based on proven facts. ” – about the film “F as Fake”.
- “Already in Citizen Kane, but with even greater force in subsequent paintings by Orson Welles, his extremely personal, open and noble vision of the world is expressed.” – Francois Truffaut.
- “Orson Welles, this capricious genius, takes personal interest everywhere and directly tells us this: ‘I apologize for being a villain; it is not my fault that I am a genius; I am dying, love me “”. – Francois Truffaut.
In 2018, an adjective derivative of the director’s surname Wellesian was included in the Oxford English Dictionary  .
At the cinema
- “… I looked at the Magnificent Ambersons a few years earlier and was deeply impressed for a long time. And when I saw Citizen Kane, I was as dumbfounded as everyone else.” – Federico Fellini.
- “Wells’ favorite films are The Lady of Shanghai and, of course, The Seal of Evil.Awesome movie! I often return to it, we reviewed it several times with Tom Elling. I also have a soft spot for The Lady of Shanghai, probably because of all the mirror trick. The scene in the room with the mirrors is simply brilliant, as quoted by Woody Allen in The Manhattan Murder Mystery. – Lars von Trier.
In addition to motion pictures, Wells also contributes to music. American heavy metal band Manowar incorporated his voice into their songs “Dark Avenger” and “Defender”.Wells acts as the narrator in these songs. “Dark Avenger” was released in 1982 on the album “Battle Hymns”. Defender exists in 2 versions. The original version was recorded approximately in 1983, and the album version, reworked, was released in 1987 with the album “Fighting The World”, after the death of Wells himself.
In addition, Orson Welles’ voice can be heard on the album of the famous art rock band Alan Parsons Project Tales of Mystery and Imagiation (updated CD reissue of 1987), where he also acted as the narrator.
