Cavaliers feel ’crosse [April 27]


The Duke men’s lacrosse team had the psychological edge from Thursday night onwards, when the Blue Devils’ entire attack unit was named to the All Atlantic Coastal Conference team during a ceremony to kick off the weekend’s 2008 ACC lacrosse championships at UVA. Despite a handful of goals from midfielder Brian Carroll and attacker Ben Rubeor, both appointed to the All-ACC squad, the Cavaliers dropped Sunday’s championship match to Duke for the second consecutive year.

Undeterred in the face of psychological warfare, the Lady Cavs lacrosse team upset the University of Maryland on the same day to win their third straight ACC title. Maybe they can train the men’s team this summer.
