vmi soccerLooking forward to a new season and new challenges, fourth-year VMI head lacrosse coach Jon Birsner announced his team’s 2019 schedule.

Both contests are slated for a noon start. VMI will then host Mount St. Mary’s at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 2.

After playing a road game at Wagner on March 5, the Keydets open Southern Conference play at Richmond on Saturday, March 9.

Stepping away from conference briefly, VMI travels east to Hampton on March 30 before heading west toward Louisville to face Bellarmine on April 6.
