NDSU Lacrosse: No Ordinary Club


IT BE FOOTBALL … BASKETBALL … OR ANY OF THE OTHER 12 DIVISION ONE SPORTS OFFERED AT THE SCHOOL … BUT A NON- VARSITY TEAM IS LOOKING TO ADD THEIR NAME TO THE CHAMPIONS ROLL … VALLEY NEWS TEAM’S ALEX EGAN CAUGHT UP WITH THE NDSU LACROSSE TEAM AND FOUND OUT THEY ARE NO ORDINARY CLUB … ZACH BOSH, NDSU LACROSSE HEAD COACH, “TEAM’S AROUND THE COUNTRY LOOK AT US AS AN ANOMALY BECAUSE THERE IS NO SANCTIONED HIGH SCHOOL LACROSSE IN NORTH DAKOTA SO WE’RE KIND OF AN OUTLIER.” MOST OF THE PLAYERS ON NORTH DAKOTA STATE’S CLUB LACROSSE TEAM HAVE BEEN RECRUITED TO PLAY NCAA LACROSSE, BUT HAVE CHOSEN TO COME TO FARGO INSTEAD. CONNER SCOTT, SR. MIDFIELD “I’D SAY THE DRAW IS HOW GOOD WE’VE BEEN DOING, PEOPLE KNOW THAT IF THEY COME HERE THEY’VE GOT A SHOT AT WINNING A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP AND THAT’S ALLURING.” FOR THE FIFTH YEAR IN A ROW, THE BISON WILL BE HEADED TO ORANGE COUNTY CALIFORNIA FOR THE MEN’S COLLEGIATE LACROSSE ASSOCIATION NATIONAL TOURNAMENT. LOGAN DOP, SR. DEFENSE “WE’VE KIND OF MADE A NAME FOR OURSELVES AS THAT BLUE COLLAR TEAM AROUND THE MCLA. WE WORK VERY, VERY HARD. WE MAY NOT HAVE THE SKILL LEVEL THAT SOME TEAMS HAVE BUT WE OUT WORK THEM.” THE TEAM HAS BEEN IN EXISTENCE SINCE 2006, AND ACCORDING TO THE PLAYERS, WHEN THE TEAM FIRST STARTED IT TOOK A WHILE FOR THEM TO GAIN NATIONAL NOTORIETY. SCOTT, “I REMEMBER HEARING ABOUT THE PROGRAM THEN AND PEOPLE WOULD SHOW UP AND GET BEAT BY 20 GOALS. NOW WE’RE BEATING TEAMS AND GOING TO THE NATIONAL TOURNAMENT.” THE TEAM PRACTICES JUST LIKE ANY OTHER SPORT ON CAMPUS, THREE TIMES A WEEK FOR 2 HOURS, PLUS FILM SESSIONS AND GAMES. ONE THING SEPARATING THEM FROM SAY FOOTBALL OR BASKETBALL, THEY HAVE TO RAISE MONEY TO PAY FOR THEIR TRIPS. USUALLY WORKING AT THE FARGODOME OR HOLDING RAFFLES. DOP, “A PART FROM THAT USUALLY AT THE END OF THE YEAR STARTING ABOUT NOW, WE’LL GO DOOR TO DOOR AROUND THE FARGO COMMUNITY AND ASK FOR TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS TOWARDS OUR CAUSE.” BUT JUST LIKE THE OTHER TEAMS ON CAMPUS … BOSH, “THE GUYS THAT COME UP HERE HAVE A CHIP ON THEIR SHOULDER. THEY WANT TO PROVE THAT THEY’RE BETTER THAN WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE. SO THEY COME HERE, THEY WORK HARD, THEY’RE VERY MUCH LIKE THE OTHER NDSU TEAMS YOU SEE HERE IN TOWN.” ALEX EGAN … VALLEY NEWS LIVE SPORTS. BEFORE THE BISON GET TO NATIONALS … THEY STILL HAVE ONE MORE REGULAR SEASON GAME … TOMORROW AGAINST TOP RANKED SAINT THOMAS AT SHANLEY HIGH SCHOOL … THE GAME WILL START AT 7:30 …
