The story for tonight’s game is how impressed I was with the new facility at Steveson. First of all it’s only about 5 minutes from my house. Parking couldn’t be much easier. The facility is beyond belief–I labeled it the Best D3 Facility in the world. The seats for the fans are a high pitch so the person in front of you could be 6’5 and it wouldn’t matter. The whole setting is serene.
Coach Paul Cantabene has reloaded quickly as he had to replace 8 All Americas and the finest D3 attack in the country. So far so good although Widener was no match for the Mustangs tonight. The venue is so accessible and the lacrosse is at an extremely high level. Add beautiful weather and it was a perfect night.
I ran into Mary Clare McFadden at the game who reported to me that her daughter Caitlyn (2010 Tewaaraton Award Winner for the Terps) is loving life down in Florida where she is the Assistant Lady’s Lacrosse Coach for the Gators.
