BURLINGTON, Vt. – The Vermont men’s lacrosse team will host The Hill Academy (Ontario) for a scrimmage at Virtue Field on Friday (Jan. 27), with opening faceoff set for noon. The scrimmage is free to attend for all fans and no tickets are required.
Announced on Tuesday, the Catamounts were slotted third in the America East Preseason Poll and predicted to make a return to the conference tournament for the third consecutive season. Last season, UVM reached the league title game for the first time in program history and saw Ian MacKay earn America East Offensive Player of the Year recognition. In addition, three other Catamounts (Jack Knight, Dawes Milchling, Cam Milligan) were honored with conference awards.
A total of 32 players return to the team from last season while 17 newcomers have joined the squad for 2017.
UVM kicks off the regular season, its first under head coach Chris Feifs, next Thursday (Feb. 2), taking on Furman at 5 p.m. in Greenville, South Carolina.
