Princeton Announces 2014 Men's Lacrosse Schedule
Princeton Men's Lacrosse 2014 Schedule
If it's almost Halloween, then it means that Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's can't be that far away. And then it will be college lacrosse season.
In less than four months, anyway.
The Princeton men's lacrosse team will open its 2014 season Feb. 22, when it hosts Hofstra on Sherrerd Field at Class of 1952 Stadium. The Tigers will play 13 regular-season games, four of which will be televised nationally on ESPN networks.
Princeton will play in venues ranging from an NFL stadium - versus Johns Hopkins in the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic - and a high school - versus Cornell in the "Battle of Bethpage" at Long Island's Bethpage High. The game against Hopkins will mark the eighth straight year that Princeton has played at least one game in an NFL stadium; the Cornell game will mark the first time since 1995 that Princeton will play a game at a high school.
The schedule has a new addition this year, as Princeton will play Lehigh for the first time since the 1930 season when the Mountain Hawks come to Sherrerd Field on April 8. Princeton has also moved Rutgers from its traditional Tuesday to a Saturday, April 5, at 7 pm.
Lehigh takes the place of Syracuse on the Princeton schedule, as the Tigers will not play the Orange for the first time since 1999.
Princeton will also play home games against North Carolina, Penn and Dartmouth.
Princeton's home games against Hofstra, North Carolina and Lehigh will be on an ESPN network, as will the Hopkins game.
