College Crosse News

The Penn Quakers released their schedule yesterday.

The University of Pennsylvania’s James H. Greene, Jr. Head Coach of Men’s Lacrosse, Mike Murphy, has announced the Quakers 2020 schedule. Penn’s 12-game slate features five home games including Friday, March 6 when the Quakers host a doubleheader as part of the Philly 4 Lacrosse Classic weekend. The schedule also includes neutral-site games with Duke (Saturday, Feb. 22 in Charlotte, N.C.) and Vermont (Friday, April 24 in New Canaan, Conn.).

Make sure you also read about Hartford’s 2020 schedule here.

The Hartford men’s lacrosse team has announced its schedule for the upcoming 2020 spring season. The Hawks are set to play 14 regular-season games, including seven on Al-Marzook Field at Alumni Stadium.

”We are all very excited about our 2020 schedule,” said head coach Ryan Martin, who enters his fourth season at the helm of the Hawks. “We look forward to competing against great opponents during the non-conference slate, which will help us prepare for America East play.”

Check out Chris’ breakdown of Siena’s 2020 calendar.

The Siena Saints are the 57th team in our 2020 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the sixth team from the MAAC. Siena finished 6-7 overall in 2019 and 3-4 in MAAC play. The Saints failed to qualify for the MAAC Tournament after losing five of their final six games, including four-straight in conference play.
