SMU Lacrosse Announces 2010 Spring Schedule

SMU coach Alex Poole unveiled the much awaited for 2010 schedule this week. The Mustangs have an eventful year with division and conference rivalries early in the year. Last year the Mustangs climbed as high as #19 in the nation. To continue their growth and face more Top 25 teams, SMU will travel to the West Coast and the Southeast for the first time.

In early February, the Mustangs travel back to Lubbock to start the divisional playoff race early. With games against Oklahoma State and Oklahoma all in February, SMU should have a great feel for where the season is headed in the LSA North. The Mustangs hope to continue their heated cross division rivalry with Texas in Austin and even the score after last year's post-season loss to the Longhorns.

In March, SMU will travel to San Diego to take on San Diego State University and UC San Diego. After a successful trip to Los Angeles last year, the Mustangs are excited to compete in southern California again. After Spring Break, the Aggies from A&M come to Dallas to compete in the annual Patriot Cup at SMU. The Mustangs look to avenge last year's loss and gain some pride for the North division. SMU then travels to Georgia to face an Auburn team that boasted a 9-1 record last year and the Georgia Bulldogs who beat the Mustangs soundly two years ago. Finally, SMU will face its cross-town rival in the TCU Horned Frogs.

In April the Mustangs will host their first annual Alumni weekend with games against North Texas and Texas State. In years past, the UNT game has had major implications for the North division playoff race and a late game with Texas State could shake the standings in both the LSA North and South

With a strong freshman class and newfound senior leadership, this program that was formerly on the rise looks to make its mark on the 2010 season. For scores, updates, and all things SMU lacrosse, visit www.smulacrosse.com.
