Collegeville, MN – The Saint John’s University Men’s Lacrosse team is thrilled to release the Spring 2018 schedule. As the Upper Midwest Lacrosse Conference and Saint John’s University welcome powerhouse newcomers Dayton and Grand Valley State, these two additions strengthen a conference already known as a powerhouse. In a recent preseason poll, the Johnnies came in at number four in the UMLC with key rival St. Thomas leading the way. The Johnnies now look to improve upon the 2017 season where they went 5-6 and made a strong run at the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association’s National Championships hosted in Orange County, CA. Some key additions and returners for the Johnnie roster should make for high expectations and another solid showing.
After an early contest with MSU-Mankato (UMLC- D1) the Johnnies will open the Division 2 portion of their regular season with four games in Nashville, TN in the newly proclaimed Music City Judgement weekend. Following that weekend, the Johnnies will be in Denver, CO for three more top ranked games. Saint John’s will then return to Minnesota to face off against UMLC rivals North Dakota State, Minnesota-Duluth, and St. Thomas. They will wrap up the regular season against CCLA Division 1 opponent University of Minnesota. In total the Johnnies have scheduled nine teams from the final 2017 D2 poll to prepare for conference playoffs and Nationals.
