With the season finally underway, you can guarantee more and more MCLA content on everything from gear photos and team highlights to press releases on who will be leading each team to their 2012 goals. Here is a little sampler to keep you going through the week. Some videos, some light reading, we are always thinking of you.
Let’s start off with a little Auburn (SELC D1) news IN the Auburn News.
Things are looking good down in Auburn for the Tigers as they will face off against Tennessee on February 4th in their first MCLA match-up. Speaking of the Volunteers, check out this preview video posted the other day.
Out west, BYU is preparing to try and top what they accomplished last year – no easy task by any means. Check out the full preview at BYULacrosse.com. Here is a little sneak peek for you.
“We are excited about our schedule this season,” said Head Coach Matt Schneck. “The majority of our games are going to be played on the road, but we are ready for the challenges and opportunities we will face. We are going to work hard to defend the national title.”
The BYU Men’s Lacrosse team, currently ranked No. 1 in preseason polls, won the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association National Championship in May 2011 in Denver and will face a season full of nationally ranked teams.
The Cougars begin their season at home on Feb. 9, where they will host the UNLV Rebels. The next day they hit the road to play two games in Boise, Idaho – Boise State on Feb. 10 and No. 18 Simon Fraser of British Columbia on Feb. 11. Both away games will be played in the afternoon and on the famous Smurf Turf of Bronco Stadium.
Always love to see what the Cougars are up to, a top notch program, run by a top notch Head Coach in Matt Schneck.
Just in case you missed it, the Red Hot Buffs released the first video of the much anticipated series ‘Club Ball’. Check it out here.
But the MOST IMPORTANT announcement of the day is surrounding the First Annual GTG Award, we announced it today! The winner was the MCLA’s own Kevin Flynn, former Montana Grizzly who helped lead the team to their 2007 National Championship win.
