"Playing for the Wasatch Lacrosse Club was a unique opportunity for me. Having coaches who have played at high level and share a passion for the game allowed me to progress rapidly as a player. Every minute of every game has been filmed, analyzed, and used to increase my lacrosse IQ and gain knowledge of what I was doing right or wrong."

2016 Tri-State Trip Blog: July 5-12

WASATCH LC TRI-STATE TRIP BLOG
July 5-12, 2016

Day 1 - Tuesday, July 5th

            Being the first day, the players were expected to meet in the airport after their flights got in, where they were picked up and taken directly to Chestnut Hill College, which will be our home for the next three nights. After dropping off bags and checking into their dorm rooms, we had an amazing team dinner at a local tavern, called McNally’s. At McNally’s, they have a special sandwich called the Schmitter, which we required every player on our team to try. Let’s just say that no one walked away disappointed!

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/ym7yjGrhUFaoEaF2cW7za8kcOLzE4DINk2QCIklzP3tVuX6vpFsLoHpW5HD24_6AHTZBzPkstDvuH0yv8LtGuPfAJtedxnAZeojHIzr9mCAdo5IzbqshBqm9TgVCAoeEHor1QGrl

        One late night trip to Wawa (like 7-11 with Subway style deli inside) later, and the team is in bed early ready so we can prepare for a long day tomorrow touring DeSales University and Lehigh University, as well as playing in a scrimmage against HEADstrong.

Day 2 - Wednesday, July 6th
           
        We started out the second day waking up to the water not working in the dorms. It didn’t hold us back, as our team then had a walk-through practice on the campus at Chestnut Hill. With 19 players from 15 different high schools, our team wanted to make sure that everyone was on the same page. After a solid practice, we returned to the water still not working in the dorms. Later, after some negotiating, we were able to get into another dorm building on the other side of campus so that everyone could get showered up before our college visit.
         At 1pm we left Chestnut Hill for DeSales University, the college where coaches Danny & Ricky Larkin and Adam Eddinger met at and played together for one year. When we arrived at the field house, we were greeted by Assistant Coach Matt Maccario and Head Coach Matthew Brancaccio, Danny, Ricky, and Adam’s good friend and former teammate at DeSales. The coaches showed our team the field house and the three brand new turf fields, then we were led on a campus tour by Coach Maccario. One thing that was pointed out on this tour was all of the construction happening on campus, showing that DeSales is actually following through on promises to make campus life better.

         After we left DeSales we made the 5-minute drive to the athletic facilities at Lehigh University. Due to time constraints we were only able to do a drive through of the campus. The next stop on our trip to Bethlehem, PA, was at Pete’s Hot Dogs, a staple that our team visits every time we are in the area. Pete’s served up some amazing chili dogs and pierogis for us! There, we enjoyed a little down time and then got ready to head to Easton, PA, to play HEADstrong.

          The game versus HEADstrong was played on the hot turf field at Easton Area High School. After giving us a tour earlier in the day, Coach Maccario from DeSales, was now coaching against us as the coach of HEADstrong. We came out with a dominating performance from the beginning. Midfielder Sutton Caplan (Logan HS/2017), who has normally only taken faceoffs for Wasatch LC, scored two huge goals in which he dodged through multiple defenders and put in well placed shots as he got toward the crease. Our leading goal scorer was Lincoln Robbins (Jordan HS/2017), who smoothly put in six goals from various areas near the goal. The defense played very well, with Kory Hoffmann (Fremont HS/2017) posting 11 saves, and David Giannini (Gonzaga HS/2019) and Myles Wanczyk (Fremont HS/2017) each scoring a goal and causing four and five turnovers, respectively.

Game Stats:
Goals - Lincoln Robbins (6), Christian Martinez (2), Sutton Caplan (2), Noah Lund (1), David Giannini (1), Ian Stockham (1), Rich Schettler (1), Jack Layton (1), Myles Wanczyk (1)
Assists - Rich Schettler (2), Lincoln Robbins (1), Noah Lund (1), Ian Stockham (1), Jordan Ross (1), Jack Layton (1), Jack Earley (1)

       Overall, it was a great team win, where we had 11 players who had at least one point. Everyone was of course in great spirits, and we ate Little Caesars pizza’s in the vans on the hour long drive back to Chestnut Hill College. The team is most certainly happy to have won tonight, but we know that our game against Duke’s LC will be our toughest test of the trip, and tonight’s game is just a warm up for tomorrow. Everyone is looking forward to seeing Villanova University and Eastern University in the early afternoon tomorrow, before the scrimmage against Duke’s LC.

Day 3 - Thursday, July 7th

       At 10:15am we arrived at the Connelly Center on the campus of Villanova University to begin our tour of the school. They split us up into two groups, and we both went our separate ways. The tour guides showed us around the campus, with stops at academic buildings, the cemetery, and the chapel. We then were taken to the student quad where the tour guides told us about the thousands of students who came out to that spot to celebrate Villanova’s 2016 NCAA Basketball Championship. It was cool for our guys to imagine being there and to see how a small Division I school (10,700 enrolled students) attracts some of the top student-athletes in the country.

       After our tour of Villanova, we headed down the road to Eastern University, a university that we have visited each of our four years we have gone back east. We took a walk around the campus on our own and got to see the huge pond on campus that used to be the former landowners swimming pool (which is completely lined with ornate tiles). We then met up with Head Coach Kevin Wallace. He took us into the basketball gym where some chairs were already set up, and gave us a great talk about college recruiting and what he as a college coach looks for in student-athletes. Coach Wallace said that he loves to recruit players from all over the country, and they are proud to represent 14 different states on their roster. He then showed us their brand new weight room, which had been converted from an old gym into a weight room. Eastern has a strong tradition, having won their last 6 conference championships and consistently in the ranking in the top 30 of Division III, so this campus visit was very aspiring for the players.

       By 1:30pm everyone was starving and tired, so we made a quick stop by Wawa to get lunch before we headed back to the dorms. We had about four hours of downtime before our game against the Duke’s Lacrosse Club, which was perfect time for everyone to get a solid nap in. It was an honor to be taking the field against Duke’s LC, because they consistently produce college All-Americans and MLL players, notably: Tucker Durkin, Jordan Wolf, Greg Gurenlian, Matt Rambo, Joey Sankey, Drew Adams, and Niko Amato.
The players walked down the field from the dorms at 5:15pm for our game against Duke’s at 6pm. As their players began taking the field for warm ups we could see that they had a few more guys than us (38 players) but we didn’t let that intimidate us. Rich Schettler (Lone Peak HS/2017) was able to win the opening faceoff of the game, and after a few short possessions on both ends Lincoln Robbins (Jordan HS/2017), from his knees, found Noah Lund (Brighton/2017) who drove in and scored a backhanded goal to give Wasatch the lead 1-0. A quick goal by Duke’s tied the game at 1-1, but on the ensuing possession, Rich Schettler found Lincoln Robbins for the fastbreak goal to put us back on top 2-1. Duke’s then went on a 3-0 run to go up 4-2, but Wasatch came back with another fastbreak goal from Lincoln Robbins off a feed from Noah Lund. One more goal from Duke’s and the first quarter ended with the score Wasatch LC 3 - Duke’s LC 5.
        After two quick goals by Duke’s, which put them up 7-3 towards the start of the second quarter, strong defense from Andrew Parker (Park City HS/2019), Porter Shepherd (Olympus HS/2017), Jack Reres (Lenape HS/2018) and Myles Wanczyk (Fremont HS/2017), and goalie play from Kory Hoffmann (Fremont HS/2017), who led both teams with 10 ground balls, helped Wasatch get back into the game. A 3-0 run started with a split dodge from Ian Stockham (Waterford School/2017), who found the back of the net with a nice lefty bounce shot. Andre Chapman (Lehi HS/2017) then burned his defender from up top and ripped a shot in the bottom left corner. The final goal of the quarter was scored when Christian Martinez (Roy HS/2019) beat his defender from X and finished coming around the goal, leaving Duke’s with a 7-6 lead going into halftime.
       The third quarter was about even throughout. Wasatch started out the scoring when Lincoln Robbins found a cutting Isaac Houghtalen (Box Elder HS/2017), who shot a nice bounce shot to even up the score at 7-7. Duke’s responded with back-to-back goals to take a 9-7 lead, but a strong power dodge and goal from Noah Lund brought the game within one, 9-8. One more goal from the Duke’s gave them the 10-8 lead going into the fourth quarter.
        Bryce Gardner (Spanish Fork HS/2017) opened up the scoring in the fourth quarter by backing in his defender, slipping by, and firing in a shot that bounced off all three pipes to bring Wasatch within one, 10-9. Faceoff wins by Sutton Caplan (Logan HS/2018) and Rich Schettler, and great wing play by LSM’s Ethan Gunn (Spanish Fork HS/2019) and David Giannini (Gonzaga HS/2019), helped Wasatch secure much needed possessions, which led to our next goal. Jordan Ross (Brighton HS/2019) pushed the ball on a fastbreak where he fed Jack Layton (Lehi HS/2017) who then found Lincoln Robbins wide open on the backside for the one-on-one goal to even the score at 10-10. Duke’s once again responded, scoring a nice outside shot to regain the 11-10 lead. But Wasatch wasn’t done. With four minutes remaining in the game, Lincoln Robbins dodged from X, rolled inside, and got hit as he shot diving across the front of the crease to tie the game back up at 11-11. As the game time slowly ticked away, a big defensive play by riding attackman Lincoln Robbins and defender Myles Wanczyk, turned the ball back over to Wasatch. With only one minute remaining, Wasatch worked the ball around until there was 25 seconds left on the clock. When the ball got behind the goal, Noah Lund found a cutter on the crease, but the feed was unsuccessful. As a scrum ensued for the groundball, Noah Lund managed to come up with it and fired a quick shot past the Duke’s goalie stick-side hip, giving Wasatch the 12-11 lead as the clock ran out.
       It was a great moral victory for our team, beating a team with the Duke’s Lacrosse Club name emblazoned on the front of their jerseys. Chris Goldberg, from TopLaxRecruits.com was in the stands for the game, and he ended up interviewing some of our players after the game, and writing this article about this year’s scrimmage: http://toplaxrecruits.com/utah-club-team-wasatchlc-sees-growth-scrimmage-thedukeslc-pa/

       Prior to the game against Duke’s LC, our players had put in orders for what they wanted from Delassandro’s, home of Philadelphia’s best cheesesteak. So after the game, we called in our order, and picked up everyone’s cheesesteak to eat back at the dorms. The players were talking about how this was the most they had ever sweat in their lives, and so hanging out at the dorms and taking multiple showers was needed in most of their eyes. Continuing the nightly ritual, everyone piled into the vans for a late night Wawa run. Tomorrow the team will be taking a tour of Chestnut Hill College and Bryn Athyn College, before we drive to Lawrenceville, NJ, for the Tri-State National Festival.

Day 4 - Friday, July 8th

        The morning started off with a tour of Chestnut Hill College, by Wasatch LC coach and Asst. Coach at Chestnut Hill College, Adam Eddinger. The team was first taken into the athletic facilities, where we checked out the weight room, coaches’ offices, and basketball arena. After a stop at the bookstore, everyone cleaned up their rooms and we departed for Bryn Athyn College. At Bryn Athyn, our team was given a warm welcome by numerous student athletes from the school and the school’s student president. Bryn Athyn is a very small Division 3 school, with only about 280 students. One of the assistant coaches, Whit Bruemmer (who went to DeSales with Danny, Ricky, and Adam), took a tour with the players, where we were shown dorms, academic centers, and their athletic facilities, which included a covered outdoor hockey/box lacrosse arena.  Bryn Athyn’s Athletic Director took our team into a conference room, and had an in depth, truthful discussion about the recruiting process. Our players were challenged to do sincere research on schools they are looking at, and the number of recruits a coach is actually trying to bring in, as well as to find out what a coach’s vision is of the players’ future on that potential college lacrosse team.

       Once the team checked into Red Roof Inn, in Lawrenceville, NJ, we went to a legit East Coast diner. The players are now preparing themselves for tomorrow’s games:
            1:15 vs. Force Storm 2017 Select (OH)
            3:30 vs. Black Jack Elite 2017 (OH)
            5:00 vs. Long Island Warhawks (NY)

Day 5 - Saturday, July 9th

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/UusrCImWBSexVECsnQZU8L1aSxXtOrfGUKPjCcL-nTjhnoNmSzN60eLGpGcld3hWaI8EmluHBd68XxQzTdVTdgbjhp9iYTi1J3O9ui4R19bsxEDLkE8usg0sZIFHLoCYrej-OKmF

       Our first day of the Tri-State National Festival began with a game against Force Storm 2017 Select from Ohio. The team came out focused and fired up. Our attack line of Noah Lund (Brighton HS/2017), Lincoln Robbins (Jordan HS/2017), and Christian Martinez (Roy HS/2019), combined for 5 caused turnovers and 11 ground balls, and helped earn the team 7 ride backs to get more possessions for our offense. Rich Schettler (Lone Peak/2017) had a dominant performance by winning 4 of 5 faceoffs in the first half, which brought confidence to both the offense and defense. Offensively, we scored on 4 of 14 possessions, and defensively, we stopped them 7 of 8 possessions. We ended the first half in the lead, 4-1.
       However, the second half was a different game. Force Storm Select, like many good teams, changed how they matched up and made sure the ball was in the stick of their play makers. Some failed clears by Wasatch LC also gave them a 4 possession advantage in the second half. We allowed a 5 goal run, which allowed for them to tie it up, and in the shortened games, we could not get our momentum back. The game went into overtime and after a great stop and clear by our defense, we couldn't get a quality shot off, and allowed them to come back down and score. The game ended with an overtime loss, 8-7.

       The second game of the day was against Black Jack Elite 2017, out of Ohio as well. After a Wawa lunch, the team was ready to go! Ian Stockham (Waterford School/2017) started off the scoring with a hard shot on the run, lefty low and away. Strong defensive stops lead to clears and good offensive possessions, one resulting in a Noah Lund (Brighton HS/2017) goal off a Lincoln Robbins (Jordan HS/2017) feed. The defense rebounded well in this game after the overtime loss, and took care of the ball, by only failing 2 clears all game and having 0 turnovers for any long pole.

       Trailing at the half 3-2, the Wasatch LC defense locked it down, allowing 1 goal on 8 possessions. The offense was started by Jack Earley (Council Rock North HS/2018) dodging down the alley with a shot on the run, righty five hole, for an unassisted goal. Not to be outdone, Ian Stockham added another goal, but this time it was a righty shot on the run.  Later in the game, Noah Lund deposited another goal off of a Lincoln Robbins feed on a fast break. The team took care of business by scoring on 4 of 9 possessions, and securing a 6-4 victory.

        Our third game was against the Long Island Warhawks from New York. After our victory against Black Jack, our team felt like they were ready to play. The offense again came out pushing the tempo, and the attack and midfielders rode well during the Warhawks clears, and created 4 overall caused turnovers. Jack Layton (Lehi/2017) was the garbage man, scoring on the crease off of a ground ball, on a rebound from a Noah Lund (Brighton HS/2017) man up shot. Christian Martinez (Roy/2019) also helped out in the garbage department, by picking up a loosey on a ride, and finishing one on one on the crease. The defense continued the team’s momentum by stopping the Warhawks on 6 out of 7 possessions, which gave Wasatch LC a 3-1 lead at halftime.
       During the second half, the team continued to play hard. Solid efforts from Andre Chapman (Lehi HS/2017), with 6 ground balls and 1 caused turnover, and Porter Shepard (Olympus HS/2017), 2 ground balls and 3 caused turnovers, provided us with a good chance to win. Kory Hoffman (Fremont HS/2017) played well in net, recording 9 saves, 1 groundball, and 1 caused turnover. Rich Schettler (Lone Peak HS/2017) provided the assist to a backside cutting Jack Layton (Lehi HS/2017) for our lone goal of the second half. However, the effort was not enough and we lost, 6-4.

        The final game on Saturday was against Tri-State 2018, from New Jersey. Wasatch LC veterans, Noah Lund (Brighton HS/2017) and Sutton Caplan (Logan HS/2018), got the team ready to play by leading stretches and line drills before the game. Rich Schettler (Lone Peak HS/2017) battled hard at the faceoff X, going 3-3 respectively in each half, and winning 50% overall. When the defense did get a stop (10 of 19 possessions overall), we cleared the ball well, going 9 for 10. Unfortunately, our offense couldn't finish enough times. Our four goals came from three different players. First, Jack Layton (Lehi HS/2017) found Jack Earley (Council Rock North/2018), who shot time and room five hole. Second, Jack Layton finished off of a Lincoln Robbins (Jordan HS/2017) feed from X. Third, Jack Earley had a strong righty alley dodge where he bounced his shot into the top left. Finally, cutting on transition, LSM Ethan Gunn (Spanish Fork HS/2019) scored a last second goal off a Lincoln Robbins feed. That 9-4 loss put us at 1-3 on the day and 4th seed in our bracket. We are looking forward to our matchup tomorrow at 2:45 against #1 seed, Team Minnesota.

Day 6 - Sunday, July 10th

        It was our final day in New Jersey, and since our next game didn’t start until 2:45pm, our team wanted to go visit Princeton University which was only a short 10-minute drive from the hotel. We took a short walking tour of the athletic fields, where we took pictures as a team with multiple National Championship banners that Princeton has earned over the years. One more trip to Wawa, and we made our way to Mercer County Park for our first round playoff game against #1 seed, Team Minnesota.

       Coming in as a #4 seed, we knew we had something to prove. Our team came out fired up, and we were leading 3-2 at halftime, from two goals by Bryce Gardner (Spanish Fork HS/2017) and another goal by Lincoln Robbins (Jordan HS/2017). However, we were struggling clearing the ball and getting any shots off, and Team Minnesota ended up going on a 5-1 run. Unfortunately, with the shortened games, we were unable to stage a comeback, and lost 4-7 to the eventual tournament champions. Although this was not an exciting time for our team, we still have something look forward to, our scrimmage tomorrow against Providence Road LC. This scrimmage will give us another chance to redeem ourselves to end the trip on a high note.

       Taking advantage of the minimal Sunday traffic, we headed to the hotel we would be at for the next two nights, in Media, PA. Everyone took a walk to Double Decker Pizza, all while trying to catch Pokémon on the way. It was a relaxing evening, where the players seemed to have forgotten about the tournament, and were now focused on being back in Pennsylvania, and looking forward to getting one last scrimmage in against a team that finished as one of the top high school’s in the state of Pennsylvania this past Spring.

Day 7 - Monday, July 11th

         It was the last day in Philadelphia and everyone wanted to sleep in, so we waited to have breakfast until 11am. After the players ate we piled into the vans and took the 35-minute drive to down to Newark to visit the University of Delaware. Due to freshman orientation on campus we weren’t able to get a full tour, but our team got to check out all of the athletic facilities, and made a stop at the campus bookstore to pick up some gear.

       Leading up to our last game of the trip, the players were getting excited, and blasted some Rage Against the Machine on the way to Strath Haven Middle School, where Strath Haven High School has their football field. Our final scrimmage was against Providence Road Lacrosse Club, which is Strath Haven High School’s own club team. Strath Haven made it to the Pennsylvania state semi-finals this spring, so we knew that this would be a big test for our team.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/ObHrUj83q-gIJfVK7CGl2PXIFxJRX64E4vI_Cd6gtNNQUOJXbJB2QWxgG1nMKs5unMtyzuwsQmv69ghVPJmUjoelFtfWBj3QXnof5X9QwuOaknbvUqvJAwmJDN28EMmFIqADBKqj
       In the first quarter, we were down by a few goals, and our team seemed to be mentally packing their bags to go home. However, something clicked after the coaches talked to the team, and everyone started to play comfortable and unforced. Our goalie, Kory Hoffmann (Fremont HS/2017), was orchestrating our defense, and making save after save. Our faceoff duo of Rich Schettler (Lone Peak HS/2017) and Sutton Caplan (Logan HS/2018), helped us gain valuable possessions by not making any ground ball easy at the faceoff X, and our attack, made of Lincoln Robbins (Jordan HS/2017), Noah Lund (Brighton HS/2017), and Christian Martinez (Roy HS/2019), did a great job of settling the ball and creating offensive opportunities for our team, producing 7 goals and 6 assists between the three of them. In the fourth quarter, we found ourselves up 10-8 with about six minutes left in the game. After holding the ball on offense for a long possession, Noah Lund ended up finding Ian Stockham (Waterford School/2017) and Isaac Houghtalen (Box Elder HS/2017) on two separate back-door cuts to help solidify a 12-8 win for Wasatch Lacrosse Club.

       Feeling great about the win over a club team that wins or plays in the finals of a lot of tournaments back east, the team wanted one more round of cheesesteaks. Luckily the Springfield Mall was nearby, and they happened to have a Tony Luke’s franchise in the food court. Everyone enjoyed cheesesteaks (some had two) with or without onions, and with American, Provolone, or Whiz cheese. It was a great way for the team to end the last night together, by delving into a Philadelphia staple food, and by getting the opportunity to cruise the mall for a bit to get any last minute souvenirs.
