Syracuse Mens Lacrosse

Syracuse University Men's Lacrosse has a history of being a dominant force in college lacrosse. If they want to keep that claim this year they'll need susbstantial leadership from their team of captains. This week on The Best of WAER Sports Podcast, Jonah Karp explains that this year's captains have a interesting blend of old and new. 

Also this week, Boston College might not impress you in the landscape of  ACC Men's Baskteball, but it hasn't always been that way. WAER's Tim Leonard reminds us that BC used to be a force in the conference and explain their plan to return to that state. 

Syracuse University men's lacrosse has a rich history of success. This season the WAER Sports staff has been profiling some of the father-son relationships on this year's team. This week on The Best of WAER Sports Podcast, JD Raucci brings us the final part of this trilogy, highlighting Tim and Connor Nelson.

Also this week, the current Syracuse men's lacrosse roster has whopping 17 freshman, and a lot of them are getting their fair share of attention. But WAER's Anthony Mazzini tells us there is one freshman who isn't being talked about as much as he probably should be.

Syracuse Falls to .500 with Loss to Rutgers

Mar 18, 2018

It’s not often Syracuse men’s lacrosse (3-3, 1-0) finds itself with a .500 record, but that’s exactly where the Orange sits after Sunday’s 14-10 loss to #16 Rutgers (6-2, 0-0).

The Scarlet Knights’ decisive win started out a competitive game, and even looked to be in SU’s favor through much of the first quarter.

Syracuse held the ball long enough to active a shot clock warning on the opening possession before redshirt sophomore Stephen Rehfuss put in the game’s first goal.

The search for top talent is a task many businesses and organization deal with each and every year. For Division One athletics the same struggle occurs when recruiting a new batch of players for your program.

WAER's Tyler Aki has the story of Syracuse University Men's Lacrosse and the talented individual they brought in, all the way from Portland, Oregon.

The No. 16 ranked Syracuse Orange (2-1, 0-0) played their third game of the season today, and second against a ranked opponent. Winning 11-10, Syracuse handed the No. 9 ranked Army Black Knights (1-1, 0-0) their first loss of the season in a triple overtime come-from-behind dramatic fashion. In a long and grueling matchup, the Orange were able to come out on top in this thriller of a victory.

After coming off a disappointing 15-3 loss to No. 3 Albany the week before, Syracuse’s huge win today showed that they can compete with the other top ranked teams in the nation.

The Syracuse men’s lacrosse team will open up their 2018 season at home this Saturday, ­February 10th against their neighbors to the south, Binghamton University. The Orange finished last year’s season 13-3, and went into the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship ranked second overall, but ultimately lost 10-7 to No. 11 Towson in the quarterfinals.

Some things will never change in sports, one of those things is you can't win if you don't score points. Syracuse University Men's Basketball has struggled to do just that the past two seasons. WAER's Jack Patel explains some of the factors behind the recent struggle.

Also this week when SU left the Big East, they also left behind some of their biggest rivals. Now five years into ACC play who has stepped up as SU's biggest rival? WAER's Evan Stockton says the answer might just surprise you.

A minute into overtime, Syracuse midfielder Sergio Salcido was lying on the field in Chapel Hill after being shoved from behind by a North Carolina player.

A few seconds later, the 5'7" senior put a laser into the back of the net to capture win number ten for Syracuse.

His gritty play sums up the whole game for the Orange, who fought back from a late deficit to stun #17 North Carolina 12-11.
