Lacrosse NCAA Tournament

For any team to be successful they need to find that balance between solid offense and solid defense. But, let's be honest most of us would rather watch a really exciting offense versus a stifling defense. This week on The Best of WAER Sports Podcast we are going shine the spotlight on the defense. WAER's Cooper Boardman has the story of junior midfielder Peter Dearth and the leader he's become on the Syracuse Men's Lacrosse team.

Also this week, with the regular season all wrapped up Syracuse will advance to the NCAA Tournament. To help us understand how the orange will fare, WAER's Tim Leonard has a post-season preview.


In Major League Baseball, Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs fans went decades and decades without a championship. So, when you hear that Syracuse men's lacrosse is in a drought you might be skeptical.

Truth is, it's been four years since the Orange have made it to the lacrosse Final Four. And while that might not seem like a long time, as WAER's Dana Grey tell us, it's actually the longest such stretch in program history.
