Maryland men’s lacrosse to take on Team USA in October

This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

NCAA Lacrosse: Men's Championship Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The Maryland men’s lacrosse team will face Team USA’s training team in a scrimmage on Oct. 7 at 6 p.m., US Lacrosse announced Tuesday.

The scrimmage is part of the Team USA Fall Classic, which is played at US Lacrosse Headquarters in Glencoe, Maryland, north of Baltimore. Maryland midfielder Connor Kelly is also a member of Team USA, but will play for the Terps.

The U.S. Training Team is comprised, in part, of nine former Terps. No other college has more players on the team. Jake and Jesse Bernhardt, Mike Chanenchuk, Michael Ehrhardt, John Haus, Tim Muller, Brian Phipps, Drew Snider and Joe Walters make up the Terps delegation.

The Fall Classic is one of the last training weekends before the Federation of International Lacrosse Men’s World Championships, which take place next summer in Netanya, Israel from July 12-21.

In other news

With the men’s team’s 3-0 win over Rutgers last night, Terrapin soccer is still undefeated. Maryland is the only school in Division I that has both an undefeated men’s and women’s soccer team.

The men’s team moved up to No. 3 in the national poll coming off a draw against now No. 1 Indiana last week.

Maryland football has opened the season with back-to-back 50-point efforts for the first time ever behind the most efficient offense in the Big Ten.

The offense may not be as efficient as it is if strength and conditioning coach Rick Court wasn’t “oozing juice” all the time. Thomas has an extra juicy look at the mantra that has taken the college football world by storm.

We now know Maryland football’s full schedule through 2021, so you can start making weekend plans for four years from now.

Similarly, we also know when Maryland men’s basketball will play Butler and Syracuse this season.

Maryland field hockey moved up to No. 9 in the national poll after two wins in the past week.

Due to Hurricane Irma, Indiana couldn’t play FIU this coming weekend, so it scheduled Charleston Southern for Oct. 7, which used to be its bye week.

In other Hurricane Irma-related news, Florida’s stadium lost its “O” and its “D,” which is fitting considering the Gators haven’t played well so far this season.
