hartzel1Hey everyone!   Sorry I have not checked in for a while.  This past weekend we played the Edmonton Rush, whoever lost this game was in last place in the West.   We were coming into this game on a three game losing streak.  We didn’t have the lead until the final thirty seconds of the game.

Rabil’s behind the back assist to Colin Doyle sealed the deal with only seconds left in the fourth quarter. The final score of the game was 11-10.  It was a huge win and  a must win because we need to win a lot of are remaining games to get into the playoffs.  This was a good start.

We have a difficult double-header weekend coming up. On Saturday we play the Portland Lumberjax in San Jose and then we jump right on a plane to Seattle and drive down to Portland for the game on Sunday.  We would be sitting real pretty if we sweep the Lumberjax this weekend, but easier said then done.

The Stealth recently just got back Shaydon Santos, Steven Holmes, and Andrew Biers at the trade deadline.  These three bring a lot to the table and are what we need at the back end to make a playoff run.  We control our own destiny and I feel like we are going to go on a run here this weekend.

Hey All Laxers!

Sorry for the long gap since I last blogged but times are a little crazy with the high school season down here in Florida in full swing. Just for a quick update Pine Crest is 7-5 and really starting to shown signs of a higher level of consistent play.

Consistency is something we have struggled with all year, but last Friday we had our first big win of the season beating St. Thomas Aquinas 13-9. I was really proud of the effort the kids gave.

The MLL season is just weeks away a preseason training is going well. I have begun conditioning and lifting as this year will prove to be a tough training camp with the revamped rosters. It will be really exciting to see the level of play the MLL puts on the field this year. Every team is an all star team.

Hofstra Lax, as an alum I feel it necessary to point out the HOT start the Pride are having this year. The last two years of losing close games, seems to have turned into winning 1 goal games this year. I wish Seth Tierney and Joe Amplo the best of luck the rest of the way. Good job guys!!!!!

Anyone dominating the NCAA brackets? 13 out of the SWEET 16…not bad

It’s the first day of March and its snowing down here in MD. Where is the warm weather?

I’m sitting in bed right now writing up a bunch of clinics for the upcoming ’09 year for Performance Lacrosse and also because I can’t move my legs right now. I worked out with my trainer Collin from E.A.T.S yesterday at 10am and he is a mad man. I lift legs with him once a week and once a week upper body. I am sore for the next three days after each workout. I got my roommate, Kip Turner, to go to my Wednesday for an upper body session with me and he is still sore and aching. I tried to get him to come with me yesterday, Saturday morning, but he refused to move from his bed due to his soreness and running in boxers on Friday (Bad Move).

As for this past week… I had a blast boarding up in Vermont with my brother and sister, but did not have so much fun driving from Vermont to NJ (to drop them off) then back down to MD. I definitely need more vacation days from work. Did the usual this week… worked, worked out at lunch time, coached some clinics after work, played some lax in the night league a few of us are entered in.

I went boarding last night up in North West MD at Ski Liberty. It was really icy but at least they had something. I am always amazed at the kids in the terrain park. They are just nasty. I saw one kid do a misty flip practically off this small little jump. I could barely pull a 360 on it and he was landing misty flips.. ridiculous!! The best part of the trip was on the ride home when we stopped at the Waffle House and stuffed our faces around 11:30pm. I went for it all; waffles, omelet, biscuit gravy, bacon, hash browns, and of course toast. That meal was awesome, but I can’t go run it off today because my legs are too sore to walk.

Hopefully in the next few weeks I’ll get some of our workouts on video and ill post them with my blogs so you can see the crazy stuff he puts Kip (when he comes) and I through.

Lastly… Go TERPS!! Good win yesterday over the Blue Devils!!
