Sept. 30, 2013
MILWAUKEE - The Marquette University women's lacrosse team kicked off its fall ball season Sunday, Sept. 29 at Valley Fields, taking on the Cincinnati Bearcats and the Grand Valley State Lakers in a day-long tournament.
The Golden Eagles took part in three scrimmages on the day. MU initially matched up against both Cincinnati and GVSU for a pair of 50-minute affairs, and finished up with a 30-minute scrimmage against GVSU.
In game one, MU defeated the Lakers by a tally of 7-4. After a break in between games, MU returned to action and defeated the Bearcats 9-0. Marquette then fell to GVSU, 7-0, in a 30-minute scrimmage.
"We mainly use the fall season to get everyone playing time and to look at different combinations of players and see how we play as a unit," Marquette head coach Meredith Black. "We want to work together as a team, play together as a team, and get to know each other's strengths and weaknesses. It is a great way to find out what we need to work on."
The Golden Eagles return to action on Sunday, Oct. 6 in Columbus, Ohio where the Ohio State University will host a day-long tournament.
