York-Adams League players coach Central Pa boys’ lacrosse All-American
ROB ROSE | 717-505-5418/@robrosesports
The York-Adams League was well represented on a list of the top boys’ lacrosse talent in the region.
Three players and one coach were named to the Central Pennsylvania Boys’ Lacrosse All-America Team.
Central York claimed the most spots on the team with three total Panthers on the squad, including Ryan Muller, who was named the coach of the year.
Junior attacker Jimmy Kohr scored 43 goals and had 24 assists for the Panthers this season. Kohr was also named a Y-A League first-team all-star.
Joining Kohr as a regional All-American is Central midfielder Jakob Terpak. The Panthers’ senior scored 32 goals and had 20 assists and was also a Y-A League first-team all-star.
As the only program with two players on the regional All-America team, it seemed fitting that Muller was named the region’s coach of the year.
The Panthers (19-2) finished third in the District 3 3-A playoffs and reached the PIAA playoffs.
A list of the top talent in the area wouldn’t be complete without Kennard-Dale’s Drew Dressel.
The midfielder scored 77 goals this season, good for No. 19 nationally and second in Pennsylvania, according to MaxPreps. Dressel added 25 assists for the Rams as well. The league’s coaches honored Dressel as the Y-A player of the year.
In all, 10 players were named to the team, as voted upon by head coaches in the central Pennsylvania region (Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin Lancaster, Lebanon, Mifflin, Montour, Union and York counties).
Eckert honored: Dallastown goalie Quinn Eckart, meanwhile, also recently picked up a national lacrosse honor.
The Y-A League second-team all-star was named a USA Lacrosse Academic All-American after he posted a 4.67 grade-point average to go along with a .628 save percentage.
Eckart wasn’t the only Y-A League player to receive that honor. West York’s Conner Harlacher also was named to the USA Lacrosse Academic All-American team.
Harlacher was the Y-A League Defensive Player of the Year and will be playing at NCAA Division III University of Lynchburg.

Hampton middle schoolers stick with lacrosse
Draven Malcolm is proof that mom knows best.
When the Hampton 13-year-old was in fourth grade, his mother, Dawn, suggested he give lacrosse a try.
Draven’s passion was dek hockey, and he wasn’t thrilled with the proposal.
“My mom kind of said I had to,” he said. “I pretty much didn’t really have a choice.”
Now he can’t get enough of it.
Malcolm and fellow Hampton seventh graders Aiden Commendatore and Patrick McCabe are part of a U13 Pittsburgh-area team that later this month will try to qualify for the 2021 World Series of Youth Lacrosse.
The True Lacrosse Pennsylvania team will join more than two dozen U13 boys teams at the WSYL East Regional Qualifier on March 27-28 in Frederica, Del.
“I’m really excited,” said Commendatore, 13, one of two goalies on the roster, “and I really want to have fun.”
The field includes the teams from Delaware, Washington, D.C., Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia. The top six teams in their age group will earn a spot in the WSYL championship June 30-July 3 in Gaithersburg, Md.
While some of the Eastern states are the nation’s strongest lacrosse areas, Western Pennsylvania is relatively new to the highest level of the sport.
The Pittsburgh team is only the second from Western Pennsylvania to compete in the seventh annual event. No team from the area has reached the WSYL championship.
But coach Jason Rozembersky has put together a group of players he believes can stand their ground with clubs from traditional lacrosse hotbeds.
“It’s gotten to the point where I think we are capable of competing at that national level. Will we win? I don’t know,” he said. “But when you get all the best kids in Western Pennsylvania on one team, we can compete. And I’ve finally been able to do that.”
The boys began practicing as a team in January and tuned up for the regional qualifier by going 3-1 at the Atlantic Spring Classic in Delaware on March 6.
McCabe, who turned 13 on March 15, and Malcolm, 13, are midfielders for True Pa.
McCabe, who like Malcolm and Commendatore got started with Hampton Youth Lacrosse, took up the sport about five years ago.
“Whenever I would come home from baseball practice, I would always look over at Fridley (Field) and see the high schoolers practicing lacrosse and I always thought it looked like a really cool sport,” McCabe said. “So then I just wanted to try it.”
Rozembersky said all three Hampton middle schoolers play a key role on the U13 team.
“Patrick is a great athlete, and he’s very smooth all over the field,” Rozembersky said. “He’s a kid you can always rely on.”
Rozembersky said Malcolm is “tough as nails” and “has improved leaps and bounds,” and Commendatore is “fearless” in goal.
Rozembersky, a New Jersey native, played club lacrosse at New Hampshire and is a member of the Hungarian national team. The 33-year-old took the reins of the Pittsburgh-area True Lacrosse program in summer of 2018 and has seen numbers double to 10-plus teams with roughly 230 kids.
The 23-boy U13 roster includes players from 13 school districts in the WPIAL.
Commendatore said the team is eager to prove Pittsburgh is making strides in lacrosse on the biggest stage.
“I definitely think some competition would think of us as not being that great because we’re not known for being an amazing lacrosse area,” he said. “That makes me want to try really hard to show that we’re doing good.”

Lacrosse picked fifth in PSAC West
Story Links2021 Roster | 2021 Schedule | 2020 Stats
LOCK HAVEN, Pa. – The Slippery Rock University women’s lacrosse team was picked to finish fifth in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Western Division this spring, according to the PSAC preseason coaches poll announced Monday.
The league will split into two divisions this season after playing as a 13-team single division up to 2019. The two-division model was supposed to make its debut in 2020, but the season was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The addition of Shepherd University brings the total of PSAC schools playing women’s lacrosse to 14 this spring. Slippery Rock will join Mercyhurst, Seton Hill, Indiana (Pa.), Lock Haven, Gannon and Edinboro in the Western Division, while West Chester, East Stroudsburg, Millersville, Bloomsburg, Shippensburg, Kutztown and Shepherd will make up the Eastern Division.
Mercyhurst garnered five of the seven first place votes from the head coaches in the division to be picked first in the West. Seton Hill got one first place vote and finished second in the voting, followed by Indiana with the remaining first place vote. Lock Haven was picked fourth, followed by Slippery Rock, Gannon and Edinboro.
The top three finishers in each division will advance to the PSAC playoffs with the top seed in each division receiving a first round bye. The top remaining seed in the Western Division will host the semifinals and championship in odd years, while the top seed in the East will host the final four in even years.
Head coach Kelsey Van Alstyne returns for her fourth season at the helm of the program, where she has posted a 22-17 record that included a school record 13 wins in 2018. Van Alstyne will be joined on the sidelines this year by assistant coach Taryn Burkholder, who came to The Rock this spring after a successful stint as head coach at Morrisville State.
Slippery Rock played just five games in 2020, all away from its home stadium, posting a 2-3 overall record before the season was cut short.
SRU enters this spring with a veteran core on the defensive side of the field, but will be looking for new leaders on the offensive end after the graduation of ShyAnne Toomer, Sami Gentzler and Tori Penders, who all ranked in the top six on the team in scoring during last spring’s shortened season.
The Rock returns offensive leaders Emily Benham and Katie Dlugosz, who ranked second and third on the team in scoring last spring with 12 and 10 points, respectively. Jamie DiCarlo (five goals, one assist), Francesca Lindelow (three goals) and Hayley Pimentel (two goals) also return, along with Molly Buettner (two assists) and Cam Brady (one goal) as the lone returning players that tallied points in 2020.
The defense will be led by two-time All-PSAC performer Rachel Shaw, who is also a two-time All-Region selection and enters this season ranked in the top 10 in SRU history in both caused turnovers and ground balls. Fellow senior defender Katie Hart has started every game of the last two seasons as well. Corryne Sulpizio, Taylor Baiers and Sydney Shnider all saw action in at least three games on defense last spring.
Slippery Rock will welcome nine true freshmen to the roster this spring and will be looking for immediate contributions from the class, particularly in the goal crease as freshman Gillian O’Rourke enters the season as the only goalie on the roster.
O’Rourke is joined by fellow newcomers Mikayla Simms (M/A), Jazmine Darling (M), Grace Garbatowicz (D), Alexa Juska (D), Rachel Mahoney (A/M), Camryn Whipple (A/M), Lauren Searles (A) and Brooke Wisniewski.
The Rock are scheduled to play a PSAC-only schedule this spring that will open March 17 at home against Mercyhurst. The final game of the regular season is set for May 1 with the PSAC Playoffs scheduled to begin May 4.

Youth leagues, coaching spark lacrosse’s growth in Western Pa.
In the world of high school athletics, it’s no secret that football and basketball are at the top of the pecking order.
But no sport is growing more rapidly in the U.S. than boys lacrosse.
What used to be a niche sport for select guys has become one of the more popular and competitive sports across the country, even in Western Pennsylvania.
“We see more teams popping up every year,” Hempfield coach John Foris said. “Especially within the last four or five years, it’s been more prevalent. I think it’s good. Having PIAA sanction has really exposed the sport and given us more opportunity.”
In the last five years, 13 new teams have been created, up from 32 in 2010 to 45 in 2014, though some have yet to join the WPIAL and still have “club” status.
There are many contributing factors to the growth of lacrosse, including its accessibility for multi-sport athletes, but the biggest key according to area coaches has been the development of youth leagues in the region.
“Upper St. Clair was one of the first communities in Pittsburgh to begin playing lacrosse,” said Brian Yates, head coach at Upper St. Clair, the No. 3 ranked team in the WPIAL according to laxpower.com. “What we see within the community, both in the high school and youth level, we’ve got a lot of passionate and committed families to the game of lacrosse. You see many of the best athletes in the community playing lacrosse.”
Although not every kid who participates in the youth leagues continues to play at the high school level, it has caused a large influx of talent in recent years, allowing programs to get off the ground quickly.
“When they come up to high school, I can work on the finer points of the game with them,” Latrobe coach David Leksell said, “instead of just concentrating on teaching them to catch and throw.”
Sewickley Academy coach Tim Hastings has coached in several stints over the past 25 years in Western Pennsylvania and has witnessed the dramatic growth.
“The numbers are incredible in youth programs,” Hastings said. “We’re one of the smallest, and we have two under-11 teams. ”
Parity within the WPIAL has increased along with the talent. Twelve of the 15 teams in Division I have made playoff appearances in the last five years, as well as 15 of the 19 in Division II.
This season, Moon (14-0, 5-0) and Mars (10-5, 5-1) will be making their first playoff appearances in the programs’ fourth and third years, respectively; the playoffs will begin with opening-round games Wednesday and Thursday.
The WPIAL also has been infused with a new generation of coaches of late, many of whom are Western Pennsylvania products themselves. Pine-Richland coach Robbie Marasti, Seton-La Salle coach Sam Foreman and Hampton coach Peter Tumbas were all members of Mt. Lebanon’s 2006 championship team.
Also, Gordon Lloyd, Mike Sciully and Kyle Christie, all Upper St. Clair alumni, have returned to the Panthers’ staff.
“Having young coaches in the area that have played the game at a high level within the past 10 years has really helped increase the level of play,” Foreman said. “When I was at Mt. Lebanon, I was being coached by guys who played at the collegiate level.”
Hastings added: “Lacrosse in the area is getting better because you have those kids that played in the WPIAL coming back to coach.”
Since boys lacrosse was sanctioned by the PIAA in 2009, no WPIAL team has advanced to the state final. North Allegheny advanced the furthest last season, losing in the semifinals, 14-1 to the eventual champion La Salle.
But as players from the region have gone on to play in college, they have brought back an outside perspective and instilled a desire into the current generation of players to broaden that perspective even more. Youth leagues have given rise to club programs, allowing players to compete year-round.
“A lot of these kids have started to play summer lacrosse outside of the area, as well,” Marasti said. “There are a lot of good club programs, and I think these kids are seeing some better competition outside of Pittsburgh, and then being able to bring that back to their high school programs, has made a big difference. ”
While the popularity in the area can’t be compared to that of Maryland, Virginia or even Eastern Pennsylvania, the rapid growth has people taking notice.
“In terms of the atmosphere and environment, it’s getting there,” said Shady Side Academy coach Michael Williams, an Annapolis, Md., native and member of the Syracuse University 2009 national championship team. “Slowly but surely, people are starting to recognize lacrosse more and more.”

Disease of society and its consequences
The fate of societies and civilizations is similar to that of a human. The main similarity is that all three are mortal. Diseases become the cause of death, as well as the property of old age – the general decrepitude of the body.
The situation seems hopeless, but human societies have hope. Before their eyes, the exception is the history of the Jews. Coming to the synagogue on Shabbat, the curious will find that the first to the Torah, while reading its weekly portion, is invited to the cohen, a descendant of Aaron, the brother of Moses.The special rights of the cogenes, the reader of the Torah will recall, have been going on for more than 33 centuries, since the time of the wandering of the Jews in the desert. And the curious will realize that the eternity of the Jews is connected with the eternity of the Torah. Disappear Jews – and the Eternal Book will be about nothing. Her characters will disappear.
The absence of senile decrepitude in us is a clear sign of the eternity of the Jews. Despite the fact that the number of Jews in the world is equal to, as sociographer Milton Himmelfarb joked, the statistical error in counting the Chinese, Jews dominate many intellectual and spiritual fields. The Jewish community is susceptible to disease like any other. Entire communities disappear under the influence of internal or external reasons. In the last century, the Jews suffered, it seemed, fatal blows – passion for Marxism and the Holocaust. But after that, the people mysteriously rebelled in the reborn Israel. The Jews of Israel today are a young, full of energy ethnos with their own language, which has returned to everyday life from the depths of the past era, with a wonderful demography.
Simultaneously with this miracle, a common phenomenon for the peoples of the world occurs – the dying of the recently largest, but rapidly assimilating Jewish community – the American one.Her fate demonstrates in grotesque form a social disease that has plagued the Western world – progressiveism.
For thousands of years, Jews have survived thanks to their loyalty to Judaism. After their secularization in the first half of the twentieth century, the self-identification of Galut Jews took place on the basis of solidarity with Israel’s struggle for survival. Thus, the renaissance of Russian Jewry, also seemingly doomed, began after the miracle of Israel’s victory in the 1967 Six-Day War. Similar was the hope for the survival of unorthodox American Jews.But now, due to the disease of progressivism, the feeling of the commonality of American Jews with their Israeli counterparts is becoming a thing of the past, the thread that connected them with Jewry is being broken.
The Algemeiner reported on a forum of American “Jewish activists” with four Knesset members at Kehillath Israel, a large conservative synagogue in Boston. “Activist” Shifra told Israeli politicians at the forum: “You are losing me and many people in the Jewish community … of the year).I want to know what you are doing to make peace with the Palestinians. I want to know what the government is doing to achieve peace. ” Likud deputy Amir Ohana answered Shifre. He noted that Israel waged a war with Hamas because of tens of thousands of mines and rockets raining down on the Jews’ heads, and admitted to Shifre: “If I have to choose between losing more Israeli civilian or military lives, or losing you I will choose, with regret, with sorrow, to lose you. ”
The activists gathered in the synagogue shared Shifra’s views.As the flock is, so are the shepherds – so are the majority of unorthodox rabbis who “lose Israel”. Following the recently concluded AIPAC conference, the rabbi of one of America’s largest and most influential conservative synagogues, Park Avenue in Manhattan, Eliot Cosgrove, speaking, accused Israel of apartheid, since Arabs from the Palestinian Authority cannot participate in the elections to the Israeli Knesset. The rabbi could be indignant that the authorities of the autonomy have not held their elections for many years. But until Israel has annexed Judea and Shomron, why on earth should the Arabs of the autonomy participate in the Israeli elections?
At the annual conference of the anti-Israel organization ESNov (self-hating Jews) “Jewish Voices for Peace”, recently concluded in Chicago, Arab terrorist Rasmeya Odeh, who participated in the 1969 terrorist attack in which two Jewish students were killed, was honored. The murderer of more than a thousand people was introduced by Rabbi Alice Weiss.
Societies of the Judeo-Christian civilization suffer now, to varying degrees, with signs and senile decrepitude, manifested in the same way as in humans, by the collapse of self-reproduction, and by attacks of the same serious illness as the American Jews – progressivism, also called liberalism, or leftism. … The fatal consequence of this disease of society, similar to AIDS in humans, is that the affected organism is unable to resist external infection, that is, the invasion of aggressive Islam, openly communicating its goal: the destruction of Western societies and the subordination of their peoples.
Events that are decisive for the fate of Western civilization are now taking place in America, whose people are much younger than Europeans and, as shown by the last elections, are able to resist disease.
Progressivism for 8 years of Obama’s presidency has advanced towards its goals incredibly, it seemed irrevocably. The abolition of biblical sexual morality made possible the absurdity of same-sex marriages, gender reassignment (the most famous transvestite, Olympic decathlon champion Bruce Jenner has already announced his desire to return to masculine form) and even the abolition of the very concept of gender, which manifests itself in shared toilets and showers in schools.The victories in the fight against racism split societies into groups with different rights – that is, they achieved the opposite of the goals set. Women’s rights have made men hostage and led to an epidemic of baseless rape allegations in colleges. The most famous case is the baseless allegation of a mentally ill black stripper of raping a group of students, lacrosse players at Duke University, costing the guys three years of litigation, and their parents – unreasonable costs of lawyers.
Progressives promised a fateful victory for their successes in the fight against “climate change”, which promised governments and nongovernmental organizations like the UN control over industry and agriculture, as well as over the distribution of food and living goods among the impoverished population due to such control, that is total dictatorship. And the influx of Muslims from the Middle East to America was supposed to suppress the possibility of citizens with traditional values to resist progressivism in democratic ways.
But at the moment when the history of the Judeo-Christian civilization in America seemed to be coming to an end, the incredible happened. Donald Trump, a man with common sense and traditional values, won the presidential elections against the position of all elites and the media, as well as contrary to predictions. He has tackled the undoing of President Obama’s most damaging “accomplishments” with an obsessive consistency, as progressive journalists complain, in keeping his campaign promises.
Progressive journalists (and that’s almost all) and politicians have started and have been hysterical for 4 months now: what liberalism has achieved is dying. Unable to defend him, progressives have strained their lungs to yell at the Trump administration’s ties to Russian agents who, according to the Obama administration’s chief of intelligence, James Clapper, have no evidence.
These attempts, accusations that the US Attorney General Sessions, while still in the rank of senator, spoke with the Russian ambassador, and some Trump adviser met with a Russian businessman in 2013, reminiscent of the fight against Trotskyism, which we read about in books (someone met with someone there), would be entertaining if all this anti-Russian pseudo-struggle today did not endanger the fate of the world, which depends on the interaction of the United States and Russia in countering the Muslim threat.
Some diseases of Russian society are specific (“special way”!), And some make Russia akin to the West. The most difficult specific problem is anti-selection, the mass washing out of the best people from all strata of society, to which the population of the country has been exposed for a century.
Even on the Stalinist “sharashkas” Korolev designed rockets that carried the first artificial satellite and the first man into space, and Tupolev created airplanes suitable for both war and peace. Today, put people in jail or pay them money – there is no one in Russia to develop modern technologies.The real scientists who survived to socialism left with indulgences. Moscow State University, the only Russian university mentioned in the top 100 in the world, is in the tail of this list.
Even worse are the consequences of anti-selection of the population in the destruction of morality. On the Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index in December 2014, Russia tied for 136th out of 175, along with Nigeria, Cameroon, Iran, Kyrgyzstan and Lebanon. Corruption to society is like cancer to humans.There are no means of dealing with it. Usually, in a society infected with corruption, success in such a struggle is only the replacement of some corrupt officials with others.
And the common problem of Russia and the West is a demographic one. Its solution in Russia is similar to that in Europe – at the expense of emigrants from Muslim countries. In the case of Russia, these are the former republics of the USSR. Nowadays, Muslims make up about 15% of the country’s inhabitants. In the next decade, this figure is expected to reach 20% – about the same as in Israel and significantly higher than in other European countries.
In this regard, the problem of terrorism is extremely urgent for Russia. The last major terrorist attack – in the St. Petersburg metro – was carried out by a native of Kyrgyzstan.
The greatest threat to the world today among the Islamist forces is the aggressive regime of Iran, fueled by Obama’s 150 billion unfrozen and on the way to mastering nuclear weapons. The well-informed Caroline Glick explains in a March 23rd article: “Obama’s crowning foreign policy was his nuclear deal with the mullahs.It opened the door for Iran to a nuclear arsenal and promises Ayatollah Khamenei’s regime to realize its wildest dreams … In his last year in office, Obama’s greatest concern was to ensure that his nuclear deal with Iran survived his presidency.
Iranian troops marching
Glick points out a means of solving the deadly threat: “For decades Russia has been the main supplier of arms to Iran . .. If Trump could convince Russia to withdraw support from Iran, he would have the opportunity to dismantle the regime in Tehran, neutralize the Iranian nuclear program and destroy“ Hezbollah “without the need for a major war.Russia’s price to pay to agree to such a deal would be significant. But if Trump adopts such a policy, the US has many negotiating “arguments” that he can use to convince Putin to leave the Ayatollahs and eliminate the threat they pose to US interests. ”
The problem with this strategy is obvious. Glick explains: “Since election day, Democrats and their loudly flapping seals in the media, as well as allies in the US intelligence community, have hit the drums of war against Russia and have accused Trump and his advisers of acting as Russian puppets – at best. , agents – at worst … Trump needs a deal with the Russians.The only question is: is he willing to pay the political price that this deal will require? ”
The answer to this question, perhaps, depends on whether in the next decade or two an Iranian atomic bomb will be detonated in an as yet unpredictable place.
