WORCESTER, Mass. – Assumption men's lacrosse head coach Keith Loftis is excited to announce his 2018 schedule, following a strong 2017 campaign for the Hounds.
The Hounds are coming off a 6-7 record a season ago, missing out on the six-team NE10 Tournament by a single game. The squad returns its tops seven scorers from a season ago, including a pair of NEILA All-New England performers, after losing just two players to graduation.
This year, Assumption opens its season at Wilmington on Mar. 4 and then plays at Mercy three days later. The Hounds host Saint Michael's in their first home game on Mar. 10, and conclude the month with home games against Post and Southern New Hampshire, while also playing AIC and Le Moyne on the road.
Assumption begins April by hosting national powerhouse Adelphi on the 4th and then travels to square off against Franklin Pierce and Bentley. The Hounds conclude the regular season with home games against Saint Rose (4/14), national runner-up Merrimack (4/17) and Saint Anselm (4/21), before capping it off at Pace on April 27.
