Mercer Releases Team's First-Ever Lacrosse Schedule

In women's soccer, Bears' teams have twice stared down women's soccer juggernaut University of North Carolina in its heyday. MU faced the Tarheels in both 1985 and 1992 after UNC had won titles in 1984 and 1991, respectively. MU lost both of those matches, as well.

Mercer men's lacrosse head coach Jason Childs welcomes the challenge. "If we want to be the best we have to be willing to face the best," said Childs. "Schedules are made so far in advance that is sometimes hard to even anticipate playing a defending champ in any sport. But, as a start-up program it is a great opportunity to be able to face the very best in your sport and can even serve as a barometer of the direction in which we want to grow or own program.

"As a whole, I believe this schedule will provide a good and fair test to our team as a first-year program. We need to take each competition with the same outlook: play our style and let results take care of themselves."
