Red Storm Announces Lacrosse Schedule for the 2013 Season

The March schedule heats up with four games in 14 days starting with a home game against Big East rival Rutgers on Saturday, March 16 at 1:00 p.m. Hofstra University makes the short trek to Queens on Tuesday, March 19 at 3:00 p.m. for a match-up between area rivals.

A neutral field battle against Robert Morris University of the NEC will be played at Malvern Prep High School in Malvern, Pa. on Saturday, March 23 at noon. The match-up between the Red Storm and the Colonials will be the first time the two teams have met since 2006. The March schedule closes out the following Saturday, March 30, with a rematch of last year's Big East Championship semifinal game that saw the Red Storm upset the No. 2-ranked Fighting Irish 8-7. Faceoff is set for 1:00 p.m. at Notre Dame's Arlotta Stadium.

The Red Storm head's to the heart of lacrosse country for The Battle of Bethpage on Saturday, April 6 as it will take on Big East counterpart Georgetown. The teams will meet at Bethpage H.S. in Bethpage N.Y. at 1:00 p.m. in what will no doubt be a crucial match-up in the race for a Big East Championship berth.

The schedule provides no let up the following weekend as St. John's meets Villanova on Saturday, April 13 at 3:00 p.m. in Queens. The game is the second of a doubleheader as part of Jack Kaley Day as NYIT and Dominican will play prior the Big East clash. A trip to Providence on Saturday, April 27 closes out the Big East portion of the schedule as the Red Storm squares off with the Friars at 1:00 p.m.

St. John's will then meet Marquette University in the regular season finale at DaSilva Memorial Field. Marquette will be playing its first season of Division I lacrosse in 2013 and will become a member of the Big East Lacrosse Conference in 2014.

The Red Storm has its sights set on a second-straight Big East Championship appearance when the calendar turns to May. The semifinals are set for Thursday, May 2 with the finals to follow on Saturday, May 2. The conference championship will be held at Villanova University for the second consecutive season.
