Tribe Lacrosse Announces 2011 Schedule
WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - William and Mary lacrosse head coach Christine Halfpenny has announced the Tribe’s schedule for the upcoming 2011 season. The challenging slate features 16 regular-season contests, eight of which will be played at Martin Family Stadium at Albert-Daly Field.
Highlighting the schedule are seven games against teams that competed in the 2010 NCAA Tournament, including a contest against national runner-up Northwestern that will be played at Dallas Cowboys Stadium on March 19.
The College will open the 2010 campaign at Duke on Feb. 20 before hosting games against Richmond on Feb. 27 and Boston University on March 5. Both Duke and Boston University earned berths in the NCAA Tournament last spring.
W&M will then hit the road for three consecutive games, beginning with a cross country trip to Oregon on March 11. The Tribe will then square off against in-state foe Virginia on March 16 before playing five-time national champion Northwestern at Dallas Cowboys Stadium.
The College will wrap up the non-conference portion of its slate with three home games, beginning with a contest against Virginia Tech on March 23. W&M will then square off against Penn State on March 27 and Navy on March 29.
The Tribe’s league slate will get underway at George Mason on April 8 before a home contest against defending Colonial Athletic Association champion James Madison two days later on April 10.
W&M will host Hofstra (April 15) and Drexel (April 17) the following weekend before closing out conference play on the road with contests at Delaware (April 22), Towson (April 24) and Old Dominion (27). The Tribe has been extremely successful in regular-season league games the last three seasons and has posted a 15-6 record.
The Tribe will look to qualify for its fourth consecutive CAA Championship when the league’s top four teams compete for the title on May 5 & 7. The conference’s regular-season champion will host the event.
With 10 starters returning, the Tribe will enter the 2010 season looking for its fourth consecutive double-digit win season.
