St. John's Lacrosse looks to rise above its tough competition in 2013

Heading into the 2013 season with National Championship aspirations, the St. John's University Lacrosse club announced its schedule for the upcoming season.

The Johnnies have once again scheduled a talent-rich group of opponents including last year's national runner-up Grand Valley State University along with perennial tournament teams the University of Dayton and Washington University-St. Louis.  Rounding out the schedule are conference opponents North Dakota State University and the University of St. Thomas, both teams made last year's National Tournament as well.

St. John's will travel to Chicago, Ill. for the games against Grand Valley State and Dayton on March 22 & 23, respectively.  The Johnnies fell to Dayton at the National Tournament last year and will look to avenge the lost which landed them as the No. 6-overall team in the country in the final 2012 MCLA Division II poll.

The annual Johnnie-Tommie matchup will occur on Saturday, April 6, at 7 p.m. at O'Shaughnessy Stadium in St. Paul, Minn. on the campus of the University of St. Thomas.  The rivalry game is expected to be one of the best MCLA Division II games during the season, as is tradition.

In total, the Johnnies will face seven of the top 25 teams from last season's Lacrosse Magazine final poll including four of the top 10 teams:

  • University of St. Thomas (1)
  • Grand Valley State University (2)
  • University of Dayton (3)
  • North Dakota State University (8)
  • Indiana Tech University (16)
  • Washington University-St. Louis (20)
  • Western Oregon University (21)

Additional out of conference games include Lindenwood University-Belleville (GRLC), Missouri State University (GRLC) as well as previous MCLA tournament teams Missouri Baptist University (GRLC), University of Northern Colorado (RMLC).

The Johnnies will also scrimmage MCLA Division I teams during the preseason and regular season including St. Cloud State University, University of Minnesota, Minnesota State University-Mankato and the University of Kansas.
