Lots of new faces at the start of Fall lacrosse

Sep. 4, 2018

Welcome to the start of another season and we have a lot of new faces joining us this year!! Along with the usual group of incoming freshman, transfers, and new players for the 2018-2019 season we have also added two new coaches. Erica Wilkerson is making her return to Pitt after graduating in 2017 and spent the last few years establishing a career and one season coaching at Carnegie Mellon. We are excited to have her aggressive style and no nonsense attitude back on the sidelines this year. Devon Schneider will also join the team as a new offensive coach after graduating from Florida in 2016 and spent the last two years coaching at Kennesaw State and then Temple. Pitt is looking forward to using her knowledge of the D1 game and helping us adjust to the new rules!!

For the Fall season we will be opening with our annual Alumni Game on Sept 8th from 9-11 AM, this is the weekend of Pitt vs Penn State Football so find a couch to sleep on or grab a hotel room because it won't be a weekend you want to miss!! From there we will be playing in 3 Fall Tournaments at Slippery Rock Unviersity (Sunday Sept 16th), Seton Hill University (Sunday Sept 23rd), and Allegheny College (Sunday Sept 30th) against a nice slate of NCAA D2 and D3 teams. Check out the schedule page for up-to-date game times and locations.

For the Spring season we will be playing all NCAA rules, except no shot clock. So look to see a much faster paced game with Pitt's deep bench and Run and Gun style pusing the tempo.The Spring schedule is still being worked on and won't be fully released until February but some big weekends to keep an eye on will be the Golden State Invitational at UCLA February 15-17th, the Pitt Invitational (Date TBD but likely late March), and the WCLL Regional Tournament in Pontiac, MI in April. Come support and cheer on your Lady Panthers as we try to make our 7th straight appearance at the WCLA National Tournament which will be in Virginia Beach, VA May 8-11, 2019
