UVA men’s lacrosse head coach Dom Starsia announced the team’s 2015 schedule today. The challenging slate features 13 games, including seven home contests at Klöckner Stadium.
“The release of our schedule is always the first reminder that spring is just around the corner,” said Starsia. “A student of the game is captivated by a schedule with a minimum of 10 games against teams that appeared in the 2014 NCAA Tournament field and seven games against the nation’s 2015 preseason top nine.”
The men’s lacrosse team returns six starters from last year’s squad that finished the season with a 10-6 record and lost to Johns Hopkins in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Defenseman Tanner Scales, attackman James Pannell, and midfielder Ryan Tucker have been named preseason All-Americans.
“The Virginia lacrosse schedule is always a combination of daunting challenges and exciting opportunities,” said Starsia. “We are all looking forward to the opening face-off at Loyola.”
A men’s lacrosse reserved season ticket is $50, which includes bleacher seats in Section 3 in the grandstand at Klöckner Stadium. All blue chairback seats were sold out in 2014 as season tickets and are available for renewal only. However, fans may request to be placed on the waiting list for blue chairback season tickets. The waiting list will be prioritized by Virginia Athletics Foundation priority points.
A men’s lacrosse general admission season ticket is $40 for adults and $30 for youth, seniors and UVa faculty and staff. General admission seating for men’s lacrosse is available in grandstand sections 1, 2, 4, and 5 and on the grass hillside.
Single-game tickets are on sale Jan. 20.
