Bellarmine Men's Lacrosse Announces Fall Schedule
LOUISVILLE, Ky.—Bellarmine University lacrosse team has
announced three events for their 2010 fall season.
The Knights will play an intrasquad game on Oct. 9 at 9 a.m. at Owsley B. Frazier Stadium as well as host an alumni game and continue their "Battle of the Sexes" with the University of Louisville women's lacrosse team.
The alumni game will be played on Friday, Oct. 15 at Thurman-Hutchins Park on River Road, at 7 p.m. Former Bellarmine players will suit up against the current team for bragging rights for the next year.
The following day, Bellarmine will play the University of Louisville women’s lacrosse team on Oct. 16 in the Battle of the Sexes Benefit Scrimmage. The annual event will take place at Louisville’s lacrosse stadium at noon. Admission is free of charge, but donations will be accepted at the gate. Half of the donations will go to the Jack McGetrick Fund and the other will go to the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation which helps aid research for pediatric brain tumors.
Coming off a 9-6 record last year, Coach Jack McGetrick will have a lot of pieces to replace, especially on offense. Three of Knights' top scorers from last year's team were selected in the National Lacrosse League draft. Austin Bright (Delaware, Ohio, Olentangy) will lead the returnees on offense that ranked fourth in Eastern College Athletic Conference in goals scored.
Defensively, Bellarmine returns Ross Doan (Dublin, Ohio, Coffman) and Drew Soeder (Hudson, Ohio, Hudson) along with goalie Dillon Ward (Orangeville, ON, The Hill Academy), who earned the Player of the Year award playing in the Ontario Junior Lacrosse League.
