GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for December 12, 2019.

Let’s check out Merrimack’s inaugural schedule!

A visit to the 2019 NCAA runner-up and a trip to a Big 10 power highlight the Merrimack College men’s lacrosse team’s first Division I schedule, which was revealed Wednesday.

Still in the Warriors’ first year of the NCAA mandated four-year reclassification period into Division I, Merrimack is set to play a full NEC schedule and count in the regular season standings, but will be unable to compete in the league tournament.

The Drexel Dragons released their 2020 schedule yesterday.

The Drexel University men’s lacrosse team announced its 2020 schedule for the upcoming spring season. The slate features six games at Vidas Field and seven on the road with two of the away affairs taking place in Philadelphia.

Drexel opens its season on the road against High Point on Saturday, Feb. 15 and then travels to UAlbany the following weekend.

The Dragons have their home opener on Tuesday, Feb. 25 against Robert Morris before hosting Marquette on Saturday, Feb. 29. These two games start a stretch of seven-straight in Philadelphia.

Chris broke down UMass’ 2020 calendar here.

The UMass Minutemen are the 53rd team in our 2020 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the sixth and final team from the CAA. UMass finished 10-5 overall in 2019 and 4-1 in CAA play. The Minutemen were the top seed in the CAA Tournament and were the hosts, but lost to Drexel in the conference semifinals.

The Philadelphia Wings are coming to NBC Sports Philadelphia.

Team USA has announced its roster for the 2020 Spring Premiere in San Antonio.

U.S. head coach John Danowski will welcome 37 of the nation’s top men’s lacrosse players to Texas for the 2020 Spring Premiere.
