Volunteers Ready for Challenging Spring 2011 Season

Knoxville, Tenn. The University of Tennessee men's Lacrosse program has announced its spring 2010-2011 schedule, which includes games against perennial top SELC opponents Florida State, Florida, and Virginia Tech as well as the always challenging SELC Central Division opponents.

The Tennessee program will join Florida State in Ponte Vedra, Florida at the annual Wounded Warrior Project game on Saturday, February 26th.

"We were honoured to be asked by Coach Harkins and the FSU program to join them at the WWP competition and hope to put on a great performance for all the fans that come out in support of such a great cause." said Volunteer head coach Matt Synowiez.

"The Big Orange Nation has always been a tremendous supporter of the U.S. military and all of our brothers and sisters fighting to protect our freedoms at home and abroad. We also have several Tennessee lacrosse alumni who are current and retired military, and we will also be playing in the WWP in honour of them."

After a successful first-time event last spring, the 2nd Annual Volunteer Invitational has been set for Friday March 25th through Sunday March 27th at Memphis University School. The Volunteer Invitational brings four teams together from four different conferences to simulate the rigors of three games in three days like teams face in the conference tournaments and the MCLA National Tournament (4 games in 5 days).

The Memphis location is right on the edge of the SELC, the GRLC, and the LSA. The 2011 Invitational line-up features Tennessee, Indiana (GRLC), Texas A&M (LSA), and Connecticut (PCLL). This year's event also has two high school games on Saturday, including Islip High School (NY) facing off against Memphis University School.
