Vandal Shots Week 1: Preparing for Cali


My name is Colin Cain and I am a Laxoholic. After playing soccer and football during high school, I needed more to do. Convinced by my cousin I went for the trifecta and tried out for the lacrosse team. I started playing lax my senior year of high school for Boise High School where I immediately fell in love with the game and couldn’t let the rest of my life go lax free. So I headed up north and got on the University of Idaho lacrosse team to keep my career going and to help extend the career of the Mighty Vandies. I am a sophomore, captain, and middie for the team this year. We have got some great young guns on the team that will only help us as we get into the grind of our season, and for seasons to come.


With the start of the spring semester up in Moscow, ID, came feet of snow. However, that did not stop the Vandal Lacrosse team from getting back on the grind! The Vandals are coming off a good fall ball season and look to build upon that, as well as build upon their previous year accomplishments of making it to the PNCLL Semi Finals.

The Vandals return almost all of their starters and have some freshman stepping into the spots of those that left.  The team has been putting in the hard work already this season between conditioning practices and drills, fighting through the cold and snow.

They are preparing for their first games, a double header in sunny central California against UC Davis and San Jose St. Although the weather in California will be a tad different than in Moscow, they are confident they will be ready to get a great farmers tan.

Overall, all of the Vandies are excited for the season, as the team and fans feel they have a chance at another season of firsts. Don’t be surprised if you hear some noise from up in the Palouse this season!
