We just got back from Philadelphia--exhausted but satisfied. What a night it was for NU lacrosse. Winning three straight titles is quite a feat, and our ladies should be very proud of themselves. Virginia gave them all they could handle, but they soldiered on and won the game.

What chaos on the field after the game! The players just mobbed eachother, jumping up and down, screaming, laughing, and crying. If you didn't know better, you might have assumed this was their first national championship. The NU fans were great, also. About 2,000 of the 6K+ crowd was wearing purple, and they were into it the whole game.

The play of the game (in my opinion) was the huge Lathrop save to keep the score 14-13 NU down the stretch. That turned the momentum around & led to the crucial goal by Dowd.

More to come...
