The Loyola Women’s Lacrosse shocked the college lacrosse world by upsetting No. 8 UVA on their home turf. The Hounds pulled off the overtime upset thanks to a heroic effort from senior Hannah Schmitt, who scored 3 goals in OT, making Loyola Superfans go, “Holy Schmitt!”
Loyola looks to carry that strong momentum back home on Saturday as they host the Lafayette Leopards to kick off their conference schedule.
The Hounds come into the game with a 2-4 record, having played in very close games thus far this season. This will be the Greyhounds’ second season in the Patriot League.
In their first Patriot League season, they went 8-0 in conference play, and beat the Leopards 22-12.
Come on out to Ridley this Saturday to cheer on the Hounds as they begin league play!

So guys, I know Snapchat’s update and the addition of the Discover feature was totally overshadowed by their decision to take away who can see “best friends” on the app, but have you taken a minute to check out the feature? It’s actually pretty amazing and it has the chance to revolutionize how young Americans consume news, new music and so much more. For example, Warner Music has a tab which features newly released music video, in full, and the more you swipe left, the more artist you can discover. This is a genius way to share music with listeners. Food Network has a tab where they share fun, easy recipes that, quite frankly, just make me really hungry. National Geographic’s snap tab show’s a marine biologist attaching a camera to the back of a whale today. If that’s not amazing, please tell me what is.
So in summation, please explore the new features that snapchat is offering to us, for free, because it’s pretty cool and you can find out some highlights of the what going on in the world around you without having to ever look away from your phone screen; there really isn’t anything more we could ask for.
Also, if you haven’t heard WLOY has a snap chat and it’s amazing, so you should add us. WLOYLoyolaRadio
