PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College men’s lacrosse program announced its 2018 regular-season schedule today (Oct. 30).
The 2017 campaign was a historic season for the program. The Friars made their first appearance in the BIG EAST Championship game against Marquette, which took place on Chapey Field at Anderson Stadium last May. Providence earned its berth in the title game after upsetting No. 2 seed Villanova, 10-7, to claim the program’s first BIG EAST Tournament victory. The Friars finished the 2017 season at 10-7 overall. The 10 victories were tied for the most in program history.
“Our 2018 schedule is our program’s most challenging to date,” Head Coach Chris Gabrielli said. “It will serve as a daily reminder for our players and coaches that our commitment to the process of getting better every day is critical.”
The Friars will scrimmage the University of Massachusetts in Amherst on Saturday, Jan. 27.
Providence opens the 2018 regular-season schedule on Saturday, Feb. 3 at Boston University. The Friars will play six of their next seven games at home on Chapey Field at Anderson Stadium. A three-game home stretch includes Holy Cross (Feb. 10), Bryant (Feb. 17), and St. Joseph’s (Feb. 24).
A road game at Sacred Heart on Mar. 3 precedes another three-game homestand against UMass Lowell (Mar. 6), Harvard (Mar. 10), and Hofstra (Mar. 17).
Following a road contest at Drexel (Mar. 25), the Friars kick off BIG EAST play at home against St. John’s on Mar. 31.
A three-game road trip starts off the month of April as the Friars travel to Georgetown (Apr. 7), reigning BIG EAST champion, Marquette (Apr. 14) and cross-city rival, Brown (Apr. 17).
Providence concludes BIG EAST play at home against 2017 NCAA Semifinalist, Denver (Apr. 21) and on the road at Villanova (Apr. 28).
The 2018 BIG EAST Tournament, hosted by Villanova, will take place from May 4-6.
