VIDEO: Saint Joseph's Women's Lacrosse, 2016 Practice Begins

PHILADELPHIA – With the regular-season opener less than one month away (Feb. 20), the Saint Joseph’s women’s lacrosse team kicked off its first official practice of the 2016 season on Wednesday, January 20. The Hawks return 21 letter winners, including nine starters, and welcome eight newcomers for the 2016 season.

“We are excited to get back to practice as we prepare for our 2016 spring season,” said second-year head coach Alex Kahoe. “Preseason has begun with a focus on leadership development and teamwork and building off of where we left off this fall. The team has come back with great energy, a commitment to continue to work hard, and an understanding of our 2016 goals. Everyone is looking to step up, compete, and take the necessary steps to be the best team we can be.”

“We are already seeing a lot of positive results,” added senior captain Mallory Grey. “Coach has really been pushing us, but we are always looking to each other. So while we are being driven really hard at practice, we are coming together even more as a team.”

Saint Joseph’s opens the 2016 season at American on Saturday, February 20, while the home opener is slated for Wednesday, February 24 vs. Monmouth at 4:00 p.m. on Sweeney Field.

Hosted by Duquesne, the 2016 Atlantic 10 Championships will run from May 5-8 in Pittsburgh, Pa., and the Hawks have their eyes on postseason contention.

“We have worked so hard this year to finish ahead of the pack and really make it to Duquesne for championship weekend,” added junior captain Nora McCallion. “That’s what is driving us.”
