It has been a long pre-season having to deal with the weather but we are in full swing and out on the turf now. We are lucky to have much support from all of Eastern's athletic programs and supporters who have generously helped with snow removal so we can get out of the gym and on to the turf. After four weeks in the gym, we couldn't be happier to be outside. We open up our season in two days in a redemption game against Steven's Tech at home.
I know that everyone is anxious to see how we will be as we start this season returning all but three players from last year's team. We have a very talented freshman class that brings even more speed, strength, and knowledge of the game to our arsenal. We return a very talented midfield, attack group, and defense that as a group should make for a very intimidating team.
This is a team that will turn a lot of heads not only in the Little East, but nationally as we make it a historic season. We have all the right tools to be a successful team and knowing our goals, strength and support it should make for a great year.
We have two scrimmages under our belt already as we took on Springfield College for our first time on turf, and just a few days ago we showed Salve Regina what Eastern lacrosse is all about.
We would first like to thank you all for your support and dedication to the team and ask for your continuos support this season. I look forward to updating everyone as the season progresses and look forward to seeing you all support our program.
Eastern Connecticut vs. Steven's Tech: Wednesday March 2nd, 4pm @ ECSU
