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

1. A legend of the game has retired.

Brodie Merrill, a five-time member of the Canadian national team and a professional lacrosse player since 2005 in both the NLL and MLL/PLL, announced his retirement from playing on Wednesday.

Merrill, widely considered the greatest long-stick midfielder of all time, is also a favorite among teammates and competitors.

The tributes rolled in after his announcement.

2. Notre Dame is loading up on the Class of 2025.

Inside Lacrosse’s Ty Xanders reported yesterday that the defending NCAA champion added two five-star recruits — No. 8 junior Teddy Lally (Thayer, Mass.) and No. 17 junior Cam Kelley (Salisbury, Conn.).


  • Madison Doucette is back in college lacrosse after a gap year, and she’ll now call Homewood Field home base for the final year of her career. It’s poetic justice, writes Beth Ann Mayer.

  • New Denver men’s lacrosse coach Matt Brown has wasted little time implementing his vision for the program, writes Matt DaSilva.

  • USC unveiled its fall ball schedule, which includes an East Coast trip to Massachusetts.

  • Temple has added Cat Rainone as an assistant coach.

  • Inside Ethan Burke’s journey from lacrosse star to breakout defensive end for the University of Texas, writes Jacob Neidig of Burnt Orange Nation.
