Spring Break is quickly approaching and that means the commencement of spring sports. The Eagles’ spring teams are ready to begin the season. This year, several Eastern clubs will travel to warm weather for spring break.
We begin with the Eagles’ tennis team. The Eagles will be heading down to Orlando Florida February 27th. They then face Regis College on March 2nd. Regis’ men’s tennis team went 5-2 and the women went 11-1 during the fall season. This is great competition for the Eagles and a positive way to begin the spring season.
The Eagles’ softball team will be heading to the Midwest this spring. The Eagles will arrive in Arizona on February 28th. They will play a total of ten games, facing four teams they have never played before. The Eagles face Siena Heights University in a double header (3/1), Northwestern College (3/2), Siena Heights University (3/4), University of Great Falls (3/4 and 3/5), Northwestern College in a double header (3/5), Siena Heights University (3/6) and lastly Aquinas College (3/6). The team to beat is the Northwestern Raiders, who finished last season ranked 2nd with a record of 31-18. However, the Eagles are fierce competitors ready to make a statement this spring.
The Eagles’ baseball team looks to play a few games this spring break. They begin their spring break playing John Hopkins (2/28), Mary Washington in a double header (3/1), Methodist University (3/4), and lastly Lynchburg College in a double header. Hopefully the snow clears up in the Northeast.
The women’s lacrosse team will migrate to Hilton Head, South Carolina to play two games. The first game will be played on March 2nd against Walsh University Cavaliers. The Cavaliers finished last season 6-9, making it to the playoffs, but lost in the first round. The Eagles next opponent is SUNY Potsdam on March 4th. The Potsdam Bears went 4-11 last season with a 0-8 record in conference play. The Eagles look to start the season strong with a chance to bring two wins back home. As for Men’s lacrosse, they will stay local this spring break and host Aurora University March 4th.
