Northwestern Wildcats release 2013 Women’s Lacrosse Schedule

No Comments 26 November 2012

EVANSTON, Ill. — Ready to defend an NCAA championship for the seventh time in eight seasons, head coach Kelly Amonte Hiller and Northwestern Lacrosse announced today (Nov. 26) NU’s regular-season schedule for the upcoming 2013 campaign. The slate features 10 matchups with NCAA Tournament teams from a year ago and seven home dates at Lakeside Field, including a March 30 rematch of last season’s national title game against Syracuse.

Amonte Hiller, a five-time national coach of the year with a career coaching mark of 196-30, is looking to steer the Wildcats to an NCAA-record ninth consecutive trip to championship weekend next May.

“Our program has worked extremely hard this fall in preparation for next spring and we’re excited about the potential of this team,” Amonte Hiller said. “We have nothing but quality opponents on our schedule for 2013 so it’s important for us to focus on improving every game throughout the season. As always, we had amazing support from our fans at Lakeside Field last year and we can’t wait to be back in front of them again beginning March 6.”

For the second straight year, Northwestern will gear up for the regular season with a January trip to the Champion Challenge, hosted by U.S. Lacrosse at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Florida. The ‘Cats will face Team England on Jan. 26 before facing off with the world’s best players — and several former NU standouts — representing the U.S. National Team in a game that will air live on ESPNU.

Northwestern’s first two tests of the regular season will both pit Amonte Hiller against her former pupils, beginning Feb. 8 when NU heads to Los Angeles to battle a UMass team led by 2004 NU alum Angela McMahon. The next day, the Wildcats will help usher in a new era of women’s lacrosse when they play Southern Cal in USC’s inaugural game at the varsity level. The Trojans are led by two familiar faces in former Northwestern All-American and four-year member of the NU coaching staff Lindsey Munday, as well as Wildcat great and USC assistant coach Hilary Bowen.

A road trip to North Carolina and Vanderbilt precedes Northwestern’s 2013 home opener, a March 6 date against another former member of Amonte Hiller’s coaching staff, Acacia Walker’s Boston College squad.

The Wildcats begin a run of six home games in seven outings on March 16, a stretch that includes back-to-back nationally televised games on the Big Ten Network against conference foe Ohio State (March 27) and last year’s national runner-up, Syracuse (March 30).

NU then battles a pair of ACC opponents when it travels to Virginia and hosts Duke in early April and, after hosting Stanford, the ‘Cats go away from Lakeside Field for road matchups with strong Florida and Notre Dame sides. Northwestern’s seven seniors will celebrate Senior Day against Penn on April 27 before leading NU into the postseason at the American Lacrosse Conference Tournament hosted by Johns Hopkins (May 2-5).

The newly expanded NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Tournament — which for the first time in 2013 will see 26 teams go dancing, up from 16 — begins on the weekend of May 11-12 at regional host sites. After two years on Long Island, the national semifinals (May 24) and championship game (May 26) will this season move south down I-95 to the campus of Villanova University in Philadelphia.

Information regarding season ticket packages to Northwestern Lacrosse home games will be available early in January, 2013.
