WLAX Reveals 2018 Spring Slate

Nov. 9, 2017


STORRS, Conn. - UConn Women's Lacrosse Head Coach Katie Woods announced her squad's complete, 17-game spring schedule on Thursday morning. The Huskies will host seven regular-season games at the Sherman Family Complex while hitting the road for 10 outings.

For the second consecutive year, UConn and James Madison square off at William G. Tierney Field at the US Lacrosse Headquarters on Sunday, February 18, as the Huskies will look to avenge last season's 12-11 heartbreaker.

UConn's spring clip is relentless both in and out of conference play, as the Huskies play four games against 2017 NCAA tournament qualifiers. The Huskies will face two tournament teams in their first three contests, visiting Syracuse on Friday, Feb. 9, before taking on the Dukes in a neutral site tilt. UConn will entertain NCAA second round participant Massachusetts on Saturday March 3, while UConn travels to the sunshine state to take on BIG EAST foe Florida on Saturday, March 31.

In addition to the Minutemen, the Huskies welcome six other 2018 opponents to the Sherman Family Complex. The team opens its home slate with a Valentine's Day matchup against Fairfield on Feb. 14.

The team's longest road stretch features three games beginning at non-conference rivals UAlbany (March 7) and Ohio State (March 14). UConn will wrap up the three-game stint at BIG EAST rival Butler (March 18), who the Huskies dominated, 17-4, a season ago.

The Huskies welcome Denver in their conference home opener on March 24. Senior Day will be held on Sunday, April 22 against Villanova, and the regular-season concludes on Saturday, April 28.



The 2018 BIG EAST Championship will include the top four teams in standings and will be played at the University of Florida. The semifinals will be held on Thursday, May 3, while the title game will be decided on Saturday, May 5. The NCAA Championship begins May 11, with the Final Four taking place on May 25 and 27 in Stony Brook, N.Y.
