Lacrosse is a spring sport. Whoever makes the schedule didn’t get the memo, though, as Navy opens their 2008 campaign tomorrow at home against VMI. (Note to Navy– if you’re going to play this early, do it in Florida!) The Keydets, who were 2-12 last year, will be led by preseason all-MAAC attackman Kevin Hill, a 6-foot, 170-pound senior that has paced the team in scoring for the last two years (including a 50-point season in 2007). The game starts at noon (with pregame at 11:45) and will be carried by WNAV, with Pete Medhurst on the call.
Christian Swezey wrote a great Navy preview for Inside Lacrosse that you don’t want to miss. Also be sure to read this Baltimore Sun piece on the area’s new goalies, including Navy’s Matt Coughlin. Go Navy.
