Inside Lacrosse magazine does Laxie Awards every year (I know, lame name for the awards) to recognize fan picks for things like player of the year, team of the year, best highlight, etc. Michigan Lacrosse is represented in quite a few of the categories this year. Trevor Yealy for MCLA player of the year (he deserves it). Michigan vs. Colorado game for upset of the year (boo).
The eye openers this year are that Michigan is listed as a finalist for Team of the Year (along with powerhouses Duke, Notre Dame, Maryland women and US National Team) and that John Paul is listed for Coach of the Year (along with some huge names in the sport). Pretty incredible recognition for a club team.
The link to the awards voting is: http://survey.insidelacrosse.com/. C'mon Michigan fans. Stack the ballot box. You have to vote for every category, so a lot of you may have to just randomly pick all the non-Michigan ones.

Good to see another Michigan coach keeping his priorities straight.
anyone know where I can see highlights or preferably a video of the whole MCLA championship game? I can't find any video from the game. if you feel like hunting for it, fox sports has the video rights I believe but I didn't see it on their website
All, the Michigan Men's Lacrosse team is once again in the national championship game (2nd year in a row) and it will be a rematch of last year's classic against Chapman. You can watch and cheer for the team online at the following website:
There are pages of videos that you can watch, but look for the one that says "MCLA Lacrosse". It will be the closest game Michigan plays all year as the last two games against Chapman have been decided by a total of 5 goals.
Michigan is also on two historic streaks - a 39 game winning streak (new record) as well as going for back to back undefeated seasons - never done before. These two records are different in the fact that the 39 game winning streak spans three years.
Please support the team tonight as I'm sure they'd appreciate it. You can also follow the team with Twitter and CBS College GameTracker - just go to umich.edu/~menslax for the links.
Thanks and GO BLUE!
