"After I scored the goal, my mom and my younger brother overheard a parent on the opposing side call me a cheater and a [N-word]. My brother, who was 7 at the time, was so disturbed by the comment, he went up to the parent and said, “My sister’s not a cheater.” My mom pulled him away and told him, “That’s not your fight.” Although she was beside herself with anger, she didn’t want a little black boy looking like the aggressor in the situation. That’s the stuff your average white family wouldn’t have to deal with watching a lacrosse game."

Often when lacrosse people talk about diversifying the sport, it’s about growing the game. By making the sport more accessible to minorities, we contend, we can tap into new populations to revitalize sagging participation numbers. That’s a worthy endeavor, no doubt. But ultimately it’s meaningless if we don’t also seek to understand how our own prejudices — even when shrouded in humor or unconsciousness — impede that progress.

Messere, who has stood at the helm of the West Genny program for the past 43 years, and Riese, who has held the reigns at Lafayette for 25 years, are both retiring at the conclusion of the 2018 season.

Out of all the levels in college lacrosse, NJCAA teams (and their coaches) face a unique annual challenge, and it just might be the hardest thing to do in all of college lacrosse – be good each year, but also run a program that shows consistent success year over year. Sure, other levels of college lacrosse (like NCAA D1) are incredibly competitive and well funded, and others (D3) are incredibly large, but the only place you’ll see a top level team in 2018 where 50% of the players (or more) are new to the program from 2017 is in the Junior College ranks. And you won’t see this occasionally, you will see it every single year, with almost every single NJCAA team.

“They’re certainly outstanding for sure,” Maryland head coach John Tillman said in response to a question about if UAlbany is the team to beat in the country. “I think they’re in the conversation.”
