The Golden Eagles opened their lacrosse tenure with back-to-back wins at the sixth annual Nick Colleluori Lacrosse Classic at Ridley High School in Pennsylvania this week. Marquette beat High Point, 13-7, and Robert Morris, 12-8.
“The fall has worked well for us,” Amplo told Inside Lacrosse. “We finally have a full team to practice with. The kids are working their tails off; it’s been a good go. We had 28 kids last year who practiced like crazy and worked hard. We hit two walls, mid-October last year and sometime last March. We pressed the fast forward button to this year. Those kids set a great foundation for us. We built standards and I think have built things the right way.”
