Nobody expected it to take long, and it didn’t. Just four-and-a-half minutes into the first quarter, Jeff Teat made his mark on the National Lacrosse League.

Editorial: Lacrosse needs more Andrew Suitors

November 4, 2021

NLL games will be a little less meaningful this season without Andrew Suitor on the floor. The heart-and-soul player announced his retirement from the game last month. Suitor scored 58 goals and 63 assists throughout his 10-year-career – pretty good for a defenseman who wasn’t expected to be a big contributor on the scoreboard.

September 23, 2020

With all the hype that Jeff Teat is bringing to the New York Riptide, it’s a shame that he won’t actually be suiting up until the 2021-22 season. When the NCAA granted a fifth year of playing eligibility to senior students to complete their collegiate careers, Teat decided to return to Cornell for one more shot at a championship with the Big Red. Another year of preparation isn’t necessary for…
