Florida Southern and the Wick!

Today is the Florida Southern College lacrosse team's first NCAA game as a varsity team. They defeated SCAD, the Svannah College of Art and Design which is an NAIA school [with possibly the coolest team bus ever], in a scrimmage but this will be there first official test ever. It could be a tough test as they face Hartwick College from New York state. Hartwick has been around for a long time, has seen some amazing players come and go through its doors and has a roster filled with kids who can really play, including their keeper, John Meade who originally played at Division 1 Sacred Heart. I don't expect FSC to actually win this game but I wish them the best of luck and applaud the school for sponsoring a lacrosse team and applaud their coach, Rory Whipple [yes, THE Rory Whipple] for seeking out good competition. For more info, see below:

UPDATE: Hartwick won the scrimmage/game/whatever it was [it appears on FSC's Div 2 schedule but not D3 Hartwick's] 7-6. Johnny Meade did not play as many of the 'wick Vets sat this one out. Congrats to FSC for making it through their first NCAA game. next up? their first win! Good luck Mocs!
