Navy 2013 Lacrosse Schedule Features Four Tourney Teams

"Having a chance to experience the intense Army-Navy rivalry on the road last season, I could not be more excited to play this game at Navy Marine Memorial Stadium before the entire Brigade and our passionate Navy lacrosse faithful, said Sowell."

For the 10th straight year, Navy will close out the regular season by facing Johns Hopkins on April 20. After losing 36 consecutive games to the Blue Jays from 1975-2009, the Midshipmen have taken two of the last three from Johns Hopkins including an 8-2 route in Annapolis last spring. Navy, though, has not been able to enjoy a win at Homewood Field since 1969 when the Mids claimed a 9-6 win in Baltimore.

Finally, the four-team Patriot League Tournament is slated to be played April 26-28 at the site of the highest seed. Since joining the league in 2004, the Midshipmen have played host to four of the eight tournaments and have claimed the title five times. Navy owns an 11-2 all-time record in the Patriot League Tournament.

"The Patriot League has established itself as one of the toughest conferences in Division I," said Sowell. "Each of our Patriot League games will be intense and hard-fought battles. Our focus will be to take one game at a time with the goal of competing in the NCAA Tournament as Patriot League Champions."

Navy's television schedule was unavailable at press time and will be released at a later date.
