2016 College Lacrosse Season Preview: Johns Hopkins Blue Jays

December 29, 2015

Overview: Johns Hopkins had an amazing run to the inaugural B1G Ten Title and NCAA Final Four after a roller coaster of a start to the season.  Looking to continue the trend of advancing to championship weekend in May, the Blue Jays need to fill defensive holes to keep opposing offenses at bay.  Nearly the entire defensive lineup graduated and two key cogs in the offense need replacing as well….


Hopkins Has Tough Task Ahead to Replace Tinney

November 25, 2015

Johns Hopkins learned that they will be without sophomore midfielder Joel Tinney for the 2016 season.  After exhausting appeals, Tinney is on campus and in good academic standing at the school but will be unable to don his number 55 on the field during competition this spring.

2015 NCAA Fall Ball Preview: Johns Hopkins

September 12, 2015

This past season was one of incredible highs and equal lows around Homewood Field. The Blue Jays were within a goal, or two, from returning to the championship game at Lincoln Financial in Philadelphia. Some familiar faces will return for the Jays, but there are holes that need to be filled as they look forward to the 2016 season. Offensively, Hopkins is in prime position to be able to gun…

NCAA Final Four Preview: Who Expected This?

May 20, 2015

At the beginning of the season, many people had Denver and Notre Dame in Philadelphia for Championship weekend. But Maryland?  Some people may have picked them, but the absence of Goran Murray, the availability of Matt Rambo, and the uncertainty in net were big question marks.  Turns out that the defense has been the strength of the Terps all year, which has them against….Johns Hopkins. Oh the Blue Jays, a…


Johns Hopkins Stuns Syracuse to Advance to Final Four

May 17, 2015

For just the fourth time ever, the Syracuse Orange were taken down in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament. The story of the day for Hopkins was graduate student Eric Schneider.
