Men's Lax Opens Saturday

Men's Lax Opens Saturday

WINCHESTER, Va. – The Shenandoah University men's lacrosse team enters a new era tomorrow afternoon as it opens its 2014 season with a non-league contest at Southern Virginia.

Tim Marshall, who took over in August as the fourth head coach in program history, ushers his squad into its first-ever contest versus the Knights.

Shenandoah started last season on strong – winning five of its first six contests before struggling in its first year of ODAC competition.

The Hornets had a number of close losses in league play, including one-goal defeats to Hampden-Sydney and Randolph College and two goals to Bridgewater.

Junior Aaron Paul is the leading returning scorer having tallied 25 points on 13 goals and 12 assists last season.

Junior captain Eric Hobby, who had seven starts last spring as a short-stick defensive midfielder, anchors the midfield unit.

Hobby had 38 ground balls and 15 caused turnovers in addition to one goal last spring in this role.

Dom Lombardi and Kyle Shea, who made a combined 25 starts last season, figure to head up the close defense with Lombardi also able to see time at long stick midfield.

Lombardi led the field players with 60 ground balls last season and forced 36 turnovers.

An excellent athlete, he also won 21 face-offs last spring.

Robb had 46 ground balls and 24 caused turnovers.

Following the graduation of seniors Tyler Quinn and Brett Holmes, freshman Ben Judy steps into the goalkeeper position.

Judy, from Ellicott City, Maryland, brings great size (6'3", 220 lbs) to the spot.

Southern Virginia, under the direction of new coach Jason Lamb, is coming off of an 0-9 campaign that saw the squad play a mix of varsity and club opponents.

The Knights are in their first year of Capital Athletic Conference competition and are 0-1 on the season after losing 19-0 at Catholic on February 11.

SVU is scheduled to play Bridgewater and Randolph out of the ODAC in addition to Shenandoah.

For those fans unable to attend the 1:00 contest, live stats and video are planned.
