Manhattan Men’s Lacrosse reveals 2013 Schedule

0 Comments 26 November 2012

RIVERDALE, N.Y.First year head coach Steve Manitta unveiled his first Division I men’s lacrosse schedule this afternoon. A challenging 15-game slate features matchups against perennial power Princeton as well as the beginning of a new rivalry with Army. Manitta will make his Division I coaching debut on Feb. 9 when the Jaspers travel to Rutgers for a date with the Scarlet Knights.

“Our schedule is challenging from the get go, from start to finish it’s a demanding one,” said Manitta. “I feel like the non-conference slate compliments our MAAC contests and will have the guys motivated to say the least.”

Manhattan will then travel to West Point, N.Y. four days later when they take on Army (2/13). It marks the first time in program history that the Jaspers will take on the Black Knights. They are 4-2 all-time against Service Academy schools with all six prior meetings coming against Air Force.

The 2013 home slate opens on Feb. 23 with a contest against Lafayette. Manhattan will then go on the road for four straight games as they visit Providence (3/2), Mount St. Mary’s (3/9), Princeton (3/12), and Binghamton (3/16). Princeton is the reigning Ivy League champions and advanced to the NCAA Tournament.

After a home contest against Mercer (3/20), the Jaspers will enter Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) play when they host Jacksonville (3/30) before a three game road swing. Manhattan will visit Siena (3/30), non-conference rival Wagner (4/2), and Detroit (4/6).

The Jaspers will play two of their final three games of the regular season at home beginning on April 13 when they host defending conference champion Canisius before traveling to VMI on April 20. In the last regular season contest, Manhattan welcomes in Marist (4/27) to Gaelic Park.

The Golden Griffins will host the 2013 MAAC Men’s Lacrosse Tournament May 3-5 at the Demske Sports Complex with the top four teams qualifying.
