Nov. 27, 2019 — Contrary to the concept

This website, for the past 21 years, has endeavored to cover the good that happens in field hockey and women’s lacrosse. We’ve seen achievements and accomplishments which Constance Applebee and Rosabelle Sinclair could have only dreamed of when they taught their respective games to their students a century ago.

But occasionally, there is other news, the kind which makes your heart sink.

On Monday, a pair of women’s lacrosse players on the varsity roster of Life University were charged for their part in an armed robbery of a suburban Atlanta party being held at an Air BnB property.

Lauren Riley and Lyndsey Kallish, two sophomores, face 19 charges, including multiple counts of armed robbery, aggravated assault, aggravated battery and a single charge of first-degree home invasion. It is alleged they scouted a party in the Air BnB before two armed men robbed partygoers of cash, cell phones, and sneakers.

Riley and Kallish both participated in the inaugural season of Life University’s team, which competes at the NAIA level. The Eagles finished with a record of 7-8.
