WHITTIER, Calif. – Whittier College Head Men's Lacrosse coach Brian Kelly released his 2017 schedule Thursday, which includes eight home games and trips to Colorado, Texas, Wisconsin, and Illinois.
Following a trip to the NCAA Division III National Championships and a near miss of an opening victory in the first round last season, the Purple & Gold look to carry this momentum into this season.
They jumpstart their campaign with back to back home games against Colorado Mesa (Feb. 11) and Notre Dame de Namur (Feb. 12) before traveling for a couple games to Southwestern University where they will take on the Pirates (Mar. 5) and the Milwaukee School of Engineering (Mar. 3).
From March 14-March 25 a five game homestand will occur beginning with Curry (March 14) with other games including Rensselaer (March 16), Union (March 19), Hope (March 22), and Elmhurst (March 25).
On April 8-9 the Poets travel to Colorado Springs, CO to take on Southwestern (TX) and Colorado College before turning around the next weekend to travel back east to play Ill. Wesleyan (Apr. 14) and Carthage (Apr. 15).
The last game of the season will take place on April 29 where the Poets will host Colorado College for the Locker-Stabler Cup.
