Men's Lacrosse Announces 2018 Schedule

By Zachary Bowers

BUENA VISTA, Va. – Southern Virginia University head men's lacrosse coach Jason Lamb today released the team's 2018 schedule.

"I am very excited about having built a very competitive schedule again this season," Coach Lamb said. "It's an honor to compete in the Capital Athletic Conference, one of the premier lacrosse conferences in the country."

The Knights will have several non-conference matchups before facing off with their first CAC opponent, Christopher Newport on March 3. The home and season opener will be against Ferrum College on Feb. 14 at 4 p.m.

"It's important to have a competitive and balanced non-conference schedule," Lamb commented. "I feel that we have found some great matchups and diversity in who we play. Every game on our schedule is tough and we have to win the close games to have a winning season and go deeper into the conference playoffs."

The Knights have nine non-conference opponents to go with their eight CAC matches in the 17-game schedule. Southern Virginia will play its final regular-season home game on April 14, before closing out the season on Apr. 24.

The Capital Athletic Conference tournament will begin on Apr. 28.
