Good morning. Here’s the latest from around the lacrosse world:

1.  Princeton’s Kate Mulham scored five goals as the Tigers beat rival Penn 15-13 on Wednesday night at ESPNU. Kyla Sears, this week’s guest on The Stick Drop with Sheehan Stanwick Burch, added three goals and an assist, including this key fourth quarter goal on a hustle play that was ruled to come just before the shot clock expired.

In another key women’s game on Wednesday, Grace Coon scored a career-high seven goals as Connecticut beat Yale 20-14, the Huskies first win ever over the Bulldogs.

2. U.S. team star Taylor Cummings got her first studio experience on Sunday and she praises the efforts that have helped lead to more coverage of women’s lacrosse on television in this week’s Taylor’s Takes column.

3. Single day tickets are now on sale for the 2022 World Lacrosse Women’s Championship at Towson University and one of the teams coming — Uganda — needs help in getting there. Uganda head coach Kali Bills, head coach at Adrian, offers an insight into the team in the IWLCA “Behind the Whistle” blog.

4. Iona, Rutgers, Yale, Ohio State and Duke top the list of women’s NCAA Division I teams that have exceeded expectations this season according to Lacrosse Reference, with the Gaels already 8.5 wins over their expected total.

5. On the men’s side, it’s been Utah, Jacksonville, St. Bonaventure, Boston University and Ohio State ahead of projected expectations.

6. Navy sophomore goalie Jo Torres has been a catalyst for her team’s current hot stretch of play heading into a rivalry game against Army this weekend.

7. Boston College Club and Utah Valley are the top seeds in their divisions for the 2022 USA Lacrosse WCLA National Championships coming up next month in Round Rock, Texas.

8. A very compelling thread on Twitter yesterday from the official athletic account of Baldwinsville (N.Y.) Central School District on an incident involving adults confronting an official in a parking lot. Our sport needs better support and appreciation for officials that make the games possible.
