    Simon Fraser University Men’s Lacrosse

    BURNABY, BC (July 12, 2011) – The Simon Fraser University men’s lacrosse team placed two players – freshman standout Calvin Craig (Coquitlam, BC / Gleneagle Secondary) and senior captain Luke Genereux (Port Coquitlam, BC / Terry Fox Secondary) - on the 2011 list of MCLA Scholar Athletes. Craig and Genereux are two of 45 players from MCLA Division I to receive this prestigious award given to players who were selected to their conference's First or Second All-Conference team, while maintaining a minimum overall cumulative GPA for the last completed semester/quarter of 3.20 or better. Twenty-seven institutions from the ninety-seven teams that compete in the MCLA Division I boasted Scholar Athletes in 2011, while Simon Fraser was one of only 10 schools with multiple recipients.

    Craig, an attackman, recently concluded one of the greatest seasons in school history, leading the way for the Clan amassing 100 goals and 32 assists for 132 points in 17 games, topping the MCLA in goals-per-game (5.882) and finishing second in points-per-game (7.765). In only his freshman season, Craig became the first SFU player to score 100 goals in a season, also setting the single game records for both goals (15) and points (19). Craig was the only freshman on the MCLA All-America first or second team, in addition to being named PNCLL Freshman of the Year, PNCLL Offensive Player of the Year and to the PNCLL All-Conference First Team.

    Genereux, a defenseman, was named an MCLA All-American for the second straight year after receiving honorable mention status last season. Genereux was also named a PNCLL First Team All-Conference selection for the third and final time in his collegiate career, after earning the same honor in both his freshman and junior year. In addition to his first MCLA Scholar Athlete Award, Genereux was also recently awarded standing on the Simon Fraser University President's Honour Roll. This award is for students who have completed at least 30 units at SFU, and have achieved a term GPA of 4.0 or above while taking at least 12 units of classes.

    In seven seasons under current SFU Co-Head Coaches Jeff Cathrea and Brent Hoskins, their teams have now produced eleven (11) MCLA Scholar Athletes, with 2011 marking the seventh straight season that a lacrosse student-athlete from Simon Fraser has received an MCLA Scholar Athlete Award.

  • Katrina Dowd is featured in the May issue of Lacrosse Magazine

     


    Womens Lacrosse brand manager Katrina Dowd is featured in the May issue of Lacrosse Magazine in their article, 'A Decade of Clutch', honoring some of the most memorable plays on the NCAA stage.

    You can check out the video of her incredible game tying goal at the 2009 NCAA semifinal on our youtube channel

    Lacrosse Magazine article by Matt Forman -

    Katrina Dowd earned two nicknames during her time at Northwestern - Trix, for her incredible stick skills, and Miss May, for her uncanny ability to play her best in the NCAA tournament. One highlight reel, game-tying goal embodies both of them.

    When the Wildcats trailed Penn 12-11 in the first three minute overtime period of the 2009 semifinal, it looked like their run of four straight national titles would come to an end. But Dowd wouldn't let that happen. With seconds remaining, she picked up a loose ball and fired a no-look, falling down shot to the upper right corner.

    "There were about 10 seconds to play, and on the draw control I was actually behind the line. Hannah (Nielsen) got it clean. I made a low cut, and I grabbed the loose ball, but I didn't know how much time I had left - it was probably around five seconds," said Dowd, now a volunteer assistant coach at the University of Denver and a brand manager at Harrow Sports.

    "I took a far outside shot. It went right into the goalie's (Emily Szelest) stick, but the rebound popped out when Alex Frank got a piece of it. I made a dive at the ball, it fell into my stick and I put it on cage. Then I saw it in the back of the net, and I just knew that I got it off in time. After that, everyone kind of took a big deep breath. It was just kind of unbelievable."

    Two minutes later, in sudden death, Frank buried the decisive goal.

  • Harrow Syncro lacrosse glove rundown - by Chris Fox

    The Syncro glove is the latest and most advanced release yet from an ever expanding glove line from Harrow Sports.

    Harrows focus was on beefing up the glove from its popular Torrent model. The Syncro offers a high impact foam system, a super-light high density foam with plastic inserted into each pad-zone. A triple flex floating cuff maximizes wrist mobility by flexing with the movement of your wrist while constantly providing maximum protection.

    The thumb is extremely flexible. Additional padding along the inside of the thumb, bordering the palm, has been added to protect the thumb against slashes as you follow through on shots and you expose the inside of your thumb to checks.

    The Syncro features a two-layer palm - an inner mesh liner and soft calf skin palm. This duel-layer system reduces wear and tear while providing the comfort and sensation of the stick in your bare hand. No break-in-time necessary!

    The inner-liner, decorate with the Harrow insignia, features sweat-wicking technology that keeps the hand bone dry. The same material keeps the hand cool during the spring and summer and warm during cold Fall Ball practices.

    The Syncro is available in 12" and 13.5" inches. Stock colours are White/Black, White/Navy, and White/Red.

    Setting Harrow apart from its competitors is that the Syncro Glove is fully and completely customizable. With over 9 colour zones, 3 logo zones (logo, number, name or team name), all the way down to the two colours of the "harrow" cuff logos stitching - You name it, you got it!
