2009 Fresno State Lacrosse Schedule Announced
Aug. 14, 2008
FRESNO, Calif. - As a first year program, Fresno State lacrosse coach Sue Behme couldn't be happier with her teams upcoming 2009 schedule. The Bulldogs travel around the country playing some of the top lacrosse schools in Johns Hopkins, Cincinnati, Detroit and Howard University.
The Bulldogs play four home games in their first year as a program. Fresno State opens the season on Saturday, February 7 against fellow Mountain Pacific Sports Federation foe California. The Bulldogs other home games are against Marist College (Mar. 17), Saint Mary's (Apr. 4) and Denver (April 18). All home games this year will be played in Bulldog Stadium.
"I love it," Behme said on the schedule. "The best way to get better is to play great teams in the conference and outside the conference. The schedule is tough, but balanced. As a first year program, we are going to head in the most balanced and competitive direction from the start and build on this from season to season. In order to be the best you need to play the best both in the conference and on a national level. It is the only way to gain the respect of the lacrosse community."
The Fresno State lacrosse team will participate in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation with Cal, Stanford, UC Davis, Oregon, Saint Mary's and Denver.
The Bulldog road schedule consists of games at Stanford (Feb. 12), UC Davis (Feb. 28), Oregon (Mar. 6), Cincinnati (Mar. 25), Detroit (Mar. 27), Presbyterian (Mar. 29), Saint. Bonaventure (April 7), John Hopkins (April 9) and Howard University (April 11).
The MPSF conference tournament will be April 23-26 at Stanford.
