Women’s Lacrosse Releases 2013 Schedule
Arlington, Va. – Marymount University’s women’s lacrosse program released its 2013 schedule, as announced by head coach Jamie Reynolds on Thursday. The Saints look to build on a successful 2012 campaign and eye a return trip to the Capital Athletic Conference postseason.
“We were able to put together a strong non-conference schedule to open the season before heading into league play,” Reynolds said. “Our first few weeks should give us an idea of where we stand heading into the always-competitive CAC season.”
Marymount opens the season at home against Gwynedd-Mercy on February 27th. Beginning play at their new home field at Long Bridge Park last year, the Saints posted their most home wins in a season since 2009.
Following the opener, the Saints head down to the Volunteer State to battle a pair of Southern Athletic Association opponents during Spring Break. Marymount takes on Birmingham-Southern on March 5th and host Sewanee on March 7th, both on the Tigers campus.
Returning home to the friendly confines of Long Bridge Park, the Saints settle in for a four-game homestand over the next two weeks. Opening the stretch against Greensboro on March 10th, MU also hosts Randolph-Macon and Lynchburg on March 14th and 20th, respectively, before beginning CAC play against Wesley on March 23rd.
After the four-game homestand, the Saints hit the road for four-straight road contests. Marymount takes on league foes York (Pa.), Salisbury and Frostburg State during that span along with former CAC opponent Goucher.
The Saints then host Guilford on April 14th and CAC rival Mary Washington on April 17th to close out their home schedule. Marymount’s regular season finale is currently scheduled to be at St. Mary’s (Md.) before heading into the CAC Tournament.
Marymount returns nine starters and 18 letterwinners from 2012 including All-CAC performers Stephanie Flood and Molly Maher along with CAC Rookie of the Year Megan McGuirk.
