U.Va. Lacrosse Adds Lynchburg Transfer

These people are all happy about Joe Lisicky. I presume. - Rob Carr

Dynamic long-pole expected to make immediate impact

Through the haze, the humidity, the doldrums of wall-to-wall STL coverage of another ho-hum baseball victory* (because really, who needs the NCAA post-season anyway, right?) comes a refreshing nugget of lacrosse news.

As reported by the Daily Progress's Whitey Reid, Lynchburg's Joe Lisicky has transferred to U.Va. and will don the orange and blue next season. Lisicky was the Division III Preseason Player of the Year last year after a 2012 campaign in which he snagged 89 groundballs and caused 41 turnovers. Unfortunately he broke his foot early on and played only one game. The NCAA granted him an extra year of eligibility because of the injury. Lisicky will enroll in a graduate school program at U.Va. this fall.

Lisicky is a big dude—6'2, 205 lbs.—and joins a cast of other physically imposing Wahoo players, including also-returning-from-injury Chris LaPierre. Coach Starsia has indicated he sees Lasicky playing something of a Swiss Army knife role for the team: close defense, long-stick middie, and face-off wing were all mentioned specifically.

Lisicky was drafted by the MLL's Ohio Machine in January, so there is certainly no question about his talent. I'm excited to see him take the field with the Hoos next spring as they look to return to the NCAA Tournament.

* - In all seriousness, congratulations to the U.Va. baseball team on another 50-win season and another Super Regional appearance. Everyone who can should get out to The Dav this weekend (Saturday at 1 PM, Sunday at 7 PM, Monday at 4 PM if necessary) and give our boys the home-field advantage they've earned. On to Omaha!
