Kennesaw State Announces Lacrosse Schedule for 2014

Kennesaw, Ga. The Kennesaw State University lacrosse team has released its 2014 schedule, head coach Kristina Llanes announced on Wednesday, Oct. 2.

"We're excited for both our in-conference and out of conference schedules," Llanes said. "We think we'll do well in both of those areas. It's exciting to get out to different areas of the country and bring more attention to Kennesaw State University."

The Owls will open up the season against the Vanderbilt Commodores at Fifth Third Bank Stadium on Friday, Feb. 7, at 2:00 p.m. Last year, KSU faced off against Vandy in Nashville in the programs inaugural game.

Then the Owls will then hit the road to take on Coastal Carolina on Saturday, Feb. 22, at 1:00 p.m.

After playing the Chanticleers, KSU will return home for three games starting with Campbell on March 1, at 1:00 p.m. The team will then play Davidson on March 8, at 1:00 p.m. followed by a game against Presbyterian on March 16, at 1:00 p.m. before they travel to Jacksonville to play their first Atlantic Sun Conference game of the year.

On Wednesday, March 26, the Owls will play Jacksonville, the defending A-Sun Champions, at 4:00 p.m. Staying on the road, the Owls will head to Virginia to take on Longwood on March 28 at 6:00 p.m. and St. Francis on March 30, in Danville, Va. at 1:00 p.m.

To finish the year, four out of the last five games are A-Sun Conference games. With 13 freshmen on the team, Coach Llanes wanted to give them as much experience as possible before playing in the majority of their conference games.

"We've saved our conference opponents for last, so we should be more developed as a program and given our younger athletes more experience in out of conference play," Llanes said. "When we get to our conference opponents, we should make a run again for the conference tournament."

The first A-Sun game in that five game stretch is at Fifth Third Bank Stadium where KSU is slated to play Stetson on April 5, at 1:00 p.m.

Then, the Owls head to Washington D.C. to take on Howard on April 11, at 6:00 p.m. and new member, Elon on April 13, at 1:00 p.m.

The Owls will wrap up the regular season with two home matches against St. Mary's on April 18, at 11:00 a.m. and Detroit on April 26, at 11:00 a.m.

The 2014 A-Sun Tournament will take place from May 2-4.
