CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia announced its 2014 women's lacrosse schedule which features nine regular-season home games and includes contests against 10 opponents that played in the 2013 NCAA Tournament, including all four national semifinalist.
"Our 2014 schedule is loaded with the best teams in collegiate women's lacrosse," said head coach Julie Myers. "We will be consistently tested at home as six of our nine home games will feature NCAA tournament teams including the 2013 NCAA champion and the national runners-up. The road will be a challenge as well as we will face the other two final four teams among several other top-10 programs. We've worked hard in the offseason and look forward to the challenge of the season beginning in early February."
Virginia opens the campaign on Sunday, Feb. 9 playing a neutral site game in Atlanta against Northwestern, the first of five 2013 NCAA Tournament teams the Cavaliers will face in their first six games.
From Feb. 15 through March 8, the Cavaliers will play five consecutive games at Klöckner Stadium, hosting Loyola (Feb. 15), Richmond (Feb. 19), Syracuse (Feb. 23), Penn State (Feb. 28) and North Carolina (March 8). Also included in the home schedule will be games against James Madison (March 19), Old Dominion (March 26) and American (April 1).
