MLAX and WLAX Announce Promotional Schedules
Feb. 15, 2016
MILWAUKEE – The Marquette University men’s and women’s lacrosse teams have announced their respective promotional schedules for the upcoming 2016 spring campaign.
For the first time in program history, men’s lacrosse will play all five of its home games at Valley Fields (1818 W. Canal Street, Milwaukee), after having spent the previous three seasons at Hart Park in Wauwatosa. The women will continue to call Valley Fields home, in its fourth season of competitive action.
Also for the first time, shuttles will be offered to all Marquette fans before every men’s and women’s game from MU’s campus to Valley Fields. The shuttles will start one hour before the game begins, and leave the Union Sports Annex (804 N. 16th Street) in 10-minute increments. The shuttles will stop service five minutes after the game starts.
The men’s squad opens the season on Saturday, Feb. 20 at Valley Fields against Bellarmine at 1 p.m. All fans in attendance will receive a free schedule poster, and the first 150 students will receive Marquette Lacrosse long sleeve shirts.
The women’s home opener on Friday, Feb. 26, will also feature a schedule poster giveaway to all fans in attendance. It will also be MVP (Most Valuable Professor/Faculty Appreciation) Day, which will allow all Marquette faculty free admittance into the game.
Throughout the season, the men’s team will honor its 19 seniors, which is the largest senior class in NCAA Division I. All 19 seniors will be honored one last time on Senior Day, Saturday, April 16, when the men open the day against Providence at 11 a.m. The women will also play on April 16 as part of a double header at 1:30 p.m.
