Virginia to Host ACC Lacrosse Tournaments
Women's and Men's Tournament Seedings Set for ACC Lacrosse Weekend
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The University of Virginia will host both the women's and the men's Atlantic Coast Conference Lacrosse Tournaments this weekend in Charlottesville. The women will play semifinal games on Saturday, April 19 on the University Hall Artificial Turf Field. The men's semifinal games will be held on Friday, April 18 in Klockner Stadium. Sunday, April 20 is Championship Sunday with the women's final game on the Artificial Turf Field at 12:30 p.m., and the men's championship game in Klockner Stadium at 3:30 p.m.
Three of the top four women's teams in the country will participate in the inaugural ACC women's lacrosse tournament. The 1996 NCAA runner-up Virginia Cavaliers, led by Head Coach Julie Myers, will face North Carolina in the first women's semifinal game which will take place at 1:00 p.m. Second-seeded North Carolina is ranked third nationally and is a second-year program under the direction of head coach Jenny Slingluff. The Tar Heels upset the Cavaliers 5-4 in Chapel Hill on March 29. Slingluff and Myers were teammates on Virginia's 1991 National Championship team. Two-time defending national champion Maryland is the top seed and will face Duke in the second semifinal game. Maryland is riding a 47-game winning streak stretching back to 1994. The last team to beat the Terrapins in the regular season was Virginia, who beat Maryland 11-9 on March 23, 1993.
The men's tournament features the same matchups but with different seedings. Maryland will play Duke in the first semifinal game, which will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Friday. Duke defeated Maryland 11-10 in the season-opener for the Blue Devils in College Park, Md. Virginia defeated North Carolina 20-5 at Klockner Stadium on April 5 and will face the Tar Heels in the second semifinal game which begins at 8:30 p.m. on Friday night. This marks the fifth time that Virginia has been the first seed in the tournament. Last year Virginia lost to North Carolina 13-11 in the ACC finals at Klockner Stadium.
