Reaching a compromise. Kailyn Lowry said that she no longer intends to butt heads with the fathers of her four children — Javi Marroquin, Chris Lopez and Jo Rivera.On a recent episode of her “Baby Mamas No Drama” podcast, the Teen Mom 2 star spoke with her cohost, Vee Rivera, about agreeing to allow her children to be with their dads on Christmas Day.- Advertisement – Late last month, Us Weekly confirmed that Lowry was arrested in September for allegedly assaulting Lopez while exchanging custody at his house. The MTV personality was accused of punching her former beau during a dispute regarding their 3-year-old son.According to court docs obtained by Us, Lopez alleged that Lowry “started attacking him [and] punching him several times on the head and upper torso because she did not want the child’s hair cut.” He additionally claimed that he “did not fight back,” and his sister said that she allegedly “attempted to pull Kailyn off” of him.Lowry later spoke out about the allegations through her attorneys. “Ms. Lowry has filed a petition for custody in the matter involving her children Lux and Creed,” her rep said in a statement to Us on October 29. “The judge in the Delaware Family Court has ordered the parties to refrain from discussing all domestic matters until after the hearing next year.”- Advertisement – “In our agreement that I have with Javi and Jo, it says that this year, Christmas Eve, I think, is mine until Christmas Day at 12. But I don’t personally care about Christmas, so we don’t have to listen to the agreement,” the 28-year-old explained on the Tuesday, November 3, episode. “I told both of them they can have Christmas, like, that’s all theirs. I don’t care. But in the event that we got into a fight and I changed my mind, we would just fall back to the custody agreement because that is supposed to help.”Kailyn Lowry with Isaac, Lux, Lincoln and newborn Creed Courtesy Kailyn Lowry/InstagramThe reality star continued, “I’m not gonna fight. I’m not fighting with nobody. You know what? [In] 2021, Vee, I’m not even f–king playing. I am done paying for attorneys. I have six attorneys. When I told you I’m done paying f–king all of them, unless it’s related to my f–king businesses, I am done. I’m done! We [are] working this s–t out.”Lowry shares son Isaac, 10, with ex-boyfriend Rivera, 28, son Lincoln, 6, with ex-husband Marroquin, 27, and son Lux, 3, with ex-boyfriend Lopez, 26. In July, she welcomed her fourth son, 3-month-old Creed, with Lopez.- Advertisement – The statement continued, “Currently, Ms. Lowry has been awarded sole custody of the children despite the allegations pending in Family Court.

He doesn’t care that he only plays for a fraction of games. He doesn’t care if he needs to sacrifice his body. He doesn’t even care if he has to take out his own teammates in practice.About a month or two ago, assistant coach Kevin Donahue had to tell Schwasnick to settle down. Schwasnick ran in from the side of the field at full speed and crashed into faceoff specialist Ben Williams, arguably Syracuse’s most valuable player.“I just always have that thought in my mind,” Schwasnick said. “You got to get the ball.”The 6-foot-1, 228-pound redshirt freshman has made his biggest mark on No. 8 Syracuse (7-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) in the past two games while picking up four ground balls, half of his season total. He’s played an increasing amount as the Orange’s short-stick midfielder rushing in from the wing on faceoffs. Known for his physical nature at the position, Schwasnick utilizes his size while providing depth for SU.Though playing on the wing in college is much more specialized than it was in high school, Orange coaches have seen Schwasnick’s potential on the wing for years.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“He’s fearless. He’s big, strong, athletic,” Syracuse head coach John Desko said. “I know why we recruited him. You can see it in him, just him physically and athletically.”The most comfortable Schwasnick has felt all season came against Cornell on April 12. For the first time, he received significant reps on the wing, where Tom Grimm received the majority of time in the beginning of the season. But Grimm went down with an injury on April 2, and SU had been scrambling for answers since.In came Schwasnick, who plays with a tenacity that matches his size. He’s as tall as any of Syracuse’s short-stick defensive midfielders. He’s 30 pounds bigger than the second heaviest. And when he rushes in from the wing, opposing players have to take notice.“Wow, that’s a big boy,” short-stick midfielder Paolo Ciferri said of his first impressions of Schwasnick. “He’s going to be able to knock some people around.” Facebook Twitter Google+ Related Stories Paolo Ciferri fills in as Syracuse lacrosse defensive midfielder Against North Carolina on Saturday, Schwasnick got even more playing time than against Cornell.About 10 minutes into the game, the ball squirted toward UNC’s attacks after a faceoff. Schwasnick charged toward them and knocked the ball away from the player who had it. As the scrum continued, he kept boxing out. And after another Tar Heels player picked it up, he leaped into the air, wrapped his stick around their body and forced another loose ball before SU eventually earned the possession.Then midway through the second quarter, Schwasnick matched up against North Carolina’s Steve Pontrello. As Pontrello caught a pass about 12 yards in front of Syracuse’s net, he didn’t shield himself from pressure. Schwasnick took a running start and laid his body into the 5-foot-9, 198-pound Pontrello. When the two collided, Pontrello, his stick and the ball dropped to the turf as the Orange began its transition offense.“Schwasnick’s been great. He’s been terrific,” Desko said. “He’s just a warrior in there.”As Williams and UNC’s Stephen Kelly battled for even just a sliver of space to flip the ball out to their teammates, Schwasnick fought to get in position for the faceoff win.They often ended up in a stalemate and Schwasnick was forced to box out. And that’s what he does best.“I love the position. I love the grinding mentality,” Schwasnick said. “… The whole physical aspect is something else I thrive off of.”With Grimm injured, Ciferri and Joe Gillis had to take on a more physically-taxing role as defensive midfielders. But by adding Schwasnick into the rotation on the wing, Ciferri and Gillis can save their energy.In his first season receiving playing time, Schwasnick can still improve his offense and defense. For the time being, though, he’s able to contribute by sticking to his simple “get the ball” mindset.“I think you’ll see him a lot on the wing going forward,” Desko said. Comments
