Hofstra women’s lacrosse returned from Stanford University ready to start its CAA season. No. 19 William & Mary was the first conference opponent for the Pride and would be the first ranked opponent for the Pride since a one goal loss to the Cardinal.
Not many teams have the opportunity in any sport to play a game on a stage like the Hofstra Pride men’s lacrosse did last Saturday. On, April 10, 2010 the Pride took on the Delaware Fightin’ Blue Hens at the New Meadowlands Stadium, the first event ever played at New Jersey’s newest sporting cathedral.
On Monday, the New York Jets announced they acquired wide receiver Santonio Holmes in a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers for a fifth round pick. Trading for the dynamic receiver was the latest move in what has been a dynamic off-season for GM Mike Tanenbaum and the Jets.
The Hofstra Pride baseball team entered its two game midweek series desperate to improve on their 10-20 record. The Pride was given two difficult opponents in the form of Army and Stony Brook University.
HEMPSTEAD, NY – Oyster Bay, NY native Joe Van Meter had seven RBI’s for CAA-leading VCU over the weekend and senior Richie Gonzalez had 10 hits in the series as the Rams swept the Hofstra Pride baseball team in a three game series at University Field at Hofstra University.
Led by senior outfielder Ethan Paquette’s offensive outburst and school record-breaking performance on Tuesday afternoon, the Pride baseball team notched a 22-11 victory against New York Tech.
Step 1: Pecora leaves
Fordham University athletics called Hofstra athletics to ask permission to interview Tom Pecora for their head coaching vacancy. “The Fordham situation is a little different then when these normally occur because I had worked at Fordham in the late ‘90’s for three years,” said Hofstra athletic director Jack Hayes.
Dropping to 0-2 in the conference and to tenth in the national polls, Hofstra needed to wake up from the nightmare that was a 11-13 loss to Drexel on Saturday. Luckily for the Pride, lacrosse is a game of redemption and when Manhattan College came to Shuart Stadium, the Pride made sure not to let this one slip away.
Most coaches have compared the playing field to a battlefield. Cody Solaja a freshman defender on the Hofstra men’s lacrosse team has heard it multiple times. It has the most meaning though, coming from his father.
