Previewing Vermont’s 2019 men’s college lacrosse schedule

After a historic 2018 season, the Catamounts look to continue their success in 2019.

Andy Lewis/Vermont Athletics

The Vermont Catamounts are the 25th team in our 2019 schedule preview series and the first team from the America East. The Catamounts finished 12-4 in 2018 and 4-2 in America East play. Vermont won the most games in a season in program history, but lost to Albany in the America East championship.

Here’s their entire 2019 schedule:

Circle These Dates

  • 2/1 (at Utah): The Catamounts will be the first to experience a brand new team, one that should be better than most first-year programs. Add to that the unusual elevation of Salt Lake City and what should be an exciting atmosphere, and it could be a surprisingly tight game. The good news is that Vermont returns Nick Washuta, one of the best goalies from a year ago.
  • 2/9 (at Navy): Vermont takes on three teams for the first time in program history. The Mids are the second brand new team the Catamounts face. It would not be a huge shock if it turns into a low-scoring game with Washuta and Ryan Kern manning the nets.
  • 3/2 (at Boston University): BU has found their groove under Ryan Polley. It’s something that Chris Feifs will look to mimic as well. No Ian MacKay on the Catamounts, but Dawes Milchling, Ben French, and Braiden Davis are notable returners on the offense. On paper, it’s definitely a battle of top 30 teams.
  • 4/6 (vs. Albany): Since 2011, Albany has won every matchup against the Catamounts. They’ve also won all but three of their meetings since 2000. But without most of their key players that helped them reach Championship Weekend, this will be a different looking Albany team. But the Danes still have Tehoka Nanticoke along for the ride.
  • 4/20 (vs. Stony Brook): The AE regular season finale pits the Catamounts against the Seawolves in Burlington. Last year’s meeting saw Stony Brook take home a double overtime win. There’s some optimism that the Seawolves could contend for the America East title, and this game could strengthen that optimism.
