Western Oregon – A Look Inside


Western Oregon University (PNCLL D2) has been the top dog in the PNCLL D2 for AT LEAST the past four years, no big deal really. While the Wolves may try and downplay their efforts, we think it is a great effort and love to see MCLA programs doing what they can to get noticed. Check out the first of many installments of an inside look at the Western Oregon Men’s Lacrosse program.

Nice job Wolves, keep it up!


    • I’m using a team custom Harrow shaft and the Harrow Crossbow head and I string my stick with a semi-low, deep pocket and little whip. It’s a good stick but I probably wouldn’t play with Harrow if BYU hadn’t been sponsored by them. I broke 6 shafts and 7 heads last spring and that would have been pretty costly if I wasn’t able to simply walk into Coach Lamb’s office and exchange them.

      Playing attack definitely helped my stick skills when I switched to a pole. I wouldn’t say my stick skills are off-the-chart compared to other poles though. You can still learn to be a good ball-handler by playing pole your whole life. I guess the most benefit I’ve seen from my attack background is when it comes to clearing. The stick skills and moves I learned as an attack have helped me maintain the ball when having to getting around someone who’s riding. But again, the benefit has been pretty marginal.
