Bucknell Names 2013 Lacrosse Captains, Announces Schedule

"I'm very excited to have these four student-athletes lead our program this season," said Goldsborough. "Each of these young women brings different styles of leadership both on and off the field, however, all of them are very confident in themselves and their teammates and want push the team to compete at a level possibly never seen before here in this program. I have the utmost respect for Madi, Adrienne, Sophie, and Char, and know that, together, we will be successful on many levels throughout the season."

The Bison captains will be tasked with leading a relatively young squad through a treacherous 2013 schedule that includes three non-conference opponents ranked in the preseason top 20 by Face-Off Yearbook. Bucknell opens the campaign at home on Feb. 16 against a Stony Brook team that finished 14-5 a year ago and is ranked No. 18 by Face-Off Yearbook.

That will be followed by a six-game road trip, starting with dates with preseason No. 9 Penn State and No. 16 Johns Hopkins. They Bison will also take on George Mason, George Washington, Patriot League foe Colgate and Presbyterian on that road stretch.

On March 16, the Bison host Patriot League power Navy at Graham Field. Lafayette and Holy Cross are the other Patriot League squads that will visit Lewisburg this spring. Bucknell also has non-league home games against Duquesne and Saint Bonaventure from the Atlantic 10 as well as Saint Francis (Pa.).

The Bison will visit Marist on Saturday, Apr. 20 in a final tuneup before the Patriot League Tournament, which will be held Apr. 26 and 28 at the home of the top seed.

"I'm very excited about the competitive level of our schedule for 2013," said Goldsborough. "Starting off with three of the top teams in the country will really help us set the tone for Patriot League games beginning in March. I am a firm believer that your competition makes you better, both individually and as a unit. That said, it will be both challenging and exciting to compete and improve with each game. I'm looking forward to measuring our progress throughout the season."

The Bison finished 5-12 with an all-underclass roster last season. This year Bucknell returns virtually its entire roster, including 30-goal scorers Arriana Sajjad, Katelyn Miller and Emiky Kookogey.
