Coast Guard Academy Announces 2010 Schedule

New London, Conn - The United States Coast Guard Academy men's lacrosse team has announced its schedule for the upcoming 2010 season. The schedule includes 8 regular season games and a spring break trip to the Washington, D.C. area to face several teams from the National College Lacrosse League (NCLL).

The Bears will open up on April 27th "under the dome" in Storrs against the Huskies of Division I UConn. Coast Guard will try to avenge last season's tough 14-10 loss.

Due to the large number of roster players hailing from the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area, the Bears will once again travel over Spring Break to face NCLL club teams from that region. This year's competition includes Towson State University, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Maryland - Baltimore County. Last year, NCLL Division I Navy tied for 1st place atop the always tough Chesapeake Division and competed in the NCLL National Tournament.

Upon returning to New London, Coast Guard will host four straight conference home games at the friendly confines of Cadet Memorial Stadium. The University of New Haven Chargers and the Bridgewater State Bears will take their shots against CGA March 26 and 31, respectively. From there, the Bears will continue their home stand on April 6 and 9 against the Central Connecticut State Blue Devils and the always tough Engineers of the Worchester Polytechnic Institute.

In their first road conference match of the season, the Bears will face off against the preseason PCLL favorite Briarcliffe College Seahawks in Bethpage, NY on the 11th of April at 4:00 p.m. Just three days later, the Bears will head out of state to play Stonehill College on April 14th. Stonehill finished ranked No. 16 in the MCLA D-II national standings after winning the conference last season and heading to Denver. Coast Guard will try to avenge last season's 12-11 loss to the Skyhawks in a four-overtime thriller at Cadet Memorial Field.

Rounding out the regular season, the Bears will head north on April 23rd to face the Rams of Division 1 URI.
