WINCHESTER, Va. – Junior Chris Frazier is in his first year of blogging about the SU men's lacrosse team. This week, he talks about the team's adjustments due to the snowstorm that hit the northern Shenandoah Valley last week.
All of the snow finally caught up with our team last week causing our first game at Southern Virginia to be postponed until tonight at 7. Although we all wanted to play, the delay gives us a little more time to work on our game.
With Winter Storm Pax canceling multiple sporting events at SU this past week, we were still able to get some good work done out on the turf while only missing one day of practice due to the snow. Howie Lumsden, Kyle Shea, Eric Hobby, Colin O'Donnell, and myself got out on to the field on Friday to help Coach Marshall shovel some of the remaining snow and ice while the softball team was practicing.
Ed. Note: The department would like to sincerely thank all of the members of the Physical Plant that worked so hard in plowing the field and opening it up for practice. Our student-athletes and coaches could not thank you all enough for your hard work in this area.
We are very excited to finally be able to play against another team tonight and I think we are ready to show everybody what we have been working on this season. We have been preparing to play Southern Virginia since practice started and hopefully we will be bringing back a W to Winchester! A win will get our season off on the right track and help keep us moving forward in our schedule.
After our season opener at Southern Virginia tonight, we have four games in the next eight days! Fortunately, all of these games are at home. Alvernia, on Saturday, gets us started before we play Hanover on February 24, Frostburg State on February 26 and Hood on March 1.
There are plenty of chances to come check out your men's lacrosse team in the upcoming weeks and we hope to see you all at Shentel!
