BYU LACROSSE SAYS BYE TO BYE WEEK
PROVO, Utah – After almost three weeks of hard practice with no scheduled games, the BYU Men’s Lacrosse team is ready to hit the field again on Friday. The Cougars will not have another bye week through the remainder of the season.
BYU (5-1) will face the University of New Mexico Lobos (2-2) Friday night in Provo. It will be both teams’ first conference game of the season.
“We are excited for the team to get back in to game action after our long road trip to California and our bye week,” BYU Head Coach Matt Schneck said. “It wasn’t easy playing our first six games in just 12 days, but we came out of the experience a better team. We are thrilled to have the University of New Mexico travel to Provo for our first conference game of the season.”
The Lobos are also looking forward to the game on Friday. In an article published in UNM’s Daily Lobo, UNM Head Coach Andrew Goldston said his team “is excited to play the best team in the country.”
“It’s going to be a really good experience getting to play a team that is so well-known across the nation,” Goldston said in the article.
Goldston also said the emotion and enthusiasm he has seen on the UNM Lacrosse team is more than any team he has ever played on.
“[The Lobos] are putting together a great program by building a foundation that will set the stage for success,” Schneck said.
The teams will face off at 7:00 p.m. MST at North University Lacrosse Field in Provo. For more information, visit byulacrosse.com.
