     Title: Top Clam Alumni: Week of 3/19
What's next?

We have made it a weekly tradition to scour the college lacrosse news and game reports to see how our Clam Alumni are doing at the next level.  Check back each week here and follow these reports on facebook to see how the Clam family is faring. AND PLEASE NOTE: while we do our best at compiling this list, it is almost a certainty that we miss some strong performances, particularly from defensive players. To this end, please feel free to contact us at either jbwalker7@hotmail.com or tmpeters12@hotmail.com if you had a strong performance you'd like others to know about!

Week of 3/19 Overview: I don't think we've had a more exciting season of college lacrosse.  It seems like the every week everyone is holding their collective breath to see what perenial power loses this week.  And while we here at Top Gun World Headquarters do the same, we also have enjoyed watching Chris Langton (St. John's Prep/Northfield Mt. Hermon) become Cornell's leading midfielder with another  superb week.  Also having freshman Jimmy Murphy (Hartford/Brewster Academy) get his first collegiate points was a great highlight.  Though the standout performance from goalie Grant Covington vs. Middlebury (Weslyean/BB&N) might be one of the best we've seen.
