In the Latest Issue — July 2014

COVER STORY – They're Here

It's been a long wait since the U.S. Men hoisted the trophy in 2010's FIL World Championships. But this month sees the best in the world once again converge, this time on Denver, Colorado. A record 38 nations head to the mountains for the 2014 FIL World Championships this time around, with familiar faces like Canada, Australia and the Iroquois hoping to challenge Team USA from the Blue Division and many new nations joining the returners from Manchester, England among the field.

The core of our July issue breaks down all the top teams, and what everyone can expect at the biggest World Championships in history.

FEATURES

Lethal Injection
From a failed expiriment to a monster run through the NCAA tournament, Myles Jones, Deemer Class and Christian Walsh morphed into a potent midfield to lead Duke to its second straight NCAA title.
by Gary Lambrecht 

Taylor Made
Inspired by the 1999 U.S. World Cup soccer team, Taylor Cummings always said it was about the tea. But after Memorial Day weekend, all eyes were on Maryland's sophomore sensation and Tewaaraton winner.
by Megan Schneider 

Fast or Last
Tufts stuck to its run-and-gun style, knocking off favorites RIT and Salisbury in a spectacular NCAA tournament run to take home its second title.
by Jac Coyne

DEPARTMENTS

Nike/USL High School Rundown
Who rules the roost as high school state playoffs go down to the wire? Keep up with the latest on LaxMagazine.com - Weekly Nike/US Lacrosse Top 25 pool updates and more: Boys | Girls 

Lifestyles
"Sharknado" may be a ridiculous Syfy Channel "B" movie with Luke Perry to many people, but at Georgetown Prep, its a bit of an unofficial mascot. We caught up with coach Mike Kubik about the unique alternative sobriquet at one of the nation's top high schools.

Your Edge
How does Ohio Machine LSM and transition terror Brian Farrell get so much juice behind his shots on net? How does Navy's Lizzy Rullan tie up defenders behind the net and use the crease to her advantage despite the new rules that allow defenders in the circle? We asked them both to break it down for our readers this month. 

Give and Go
You may have gotten used to watching Megan Douty mark up on top offensive threats in the Atlantic Coast Conference as a Tewaaraton Award finalist this spring for the NCAA champion Maryland Terrapins. But we asked her about what else she's into, like zip-lining in Costa Rica and Reggie Rocket from "Rocket Power".

How to Receive Lacrosse Magazine (Subscriptions)

Now in its 35th year, Lacrosse Magazine is available only to members of US Lacrosse as one of the many benefits of membership. Membership dues help US Lacrosse fuel the growth of the game nationwide. Join US Lacrosse today to start your subscription to Lacrosse Magazine.

Non-youth members receive all issues of the magazine. Youth members (age 14 and under) currently receive the February, March, April, May, July and October issues, but have the option to upgrade to all issues with their membership.

New members must join at least one month prior to an issue month in order to receive the next issue. For example, to receive the July issue, a member must join US Lacrosse before the address file is pulled from the database by June 1.

When quantities permit, additional copies or back issues of Lacrosse Magazine can be purchased through US Lacrosse. The cost of each issue is $5 for members and $6 for non-members, inclusive of postage. To inquire about quantities, please e-mail info@uslacrosse.org.

Some members have noticed that the address label on the magazine is now being printed upside down. This is not a printing error. This is a new requirement from the USPS for periodicals using co-mail (which we do). The only way to print addresses right-side up would be to move them to the back cover, which we do not favor doing at this time.
