Head coach Andrew Baxter released Fairfield’s 2020 schedule yesterday.
Fairfield University Men’s Lacrosse Head Coach Andrew Baxter has announced the 2020 schedule for his first season leading the Stags. The slate includes seven home games on Conway Field at Rafferty Stadium and features four teams that ranked among the top 15 in the nation over the course of last spring.
”Our 2020 schedule presents unique challenges and opportunities for our team, with a mix of traditional rivals and new opponents. Most importantly, it is a schedule that will prepare us physically and mentally for CAA play,” said Baxter. “We have a focused and committed team of young men in our locker room that continues to improve on a daily basis, and we look forward to seeing our effort translate into a competitive and exciting product on the field this season.”
