COLCHESTER, Vt. - Three Saint Michael's College Athletics teams are set to head to Florida for Spring Break training trips beginning this weekend, while women's lacrosse plays multiple in-region contests.
Softball plays 10 games in Clermont at the National Training Center Spring Games, while baseball plays eight contests in the greater Orlando area. After a Florida trip that includes a contest versus Augustana (S.D.) College, which is ranked 25th in the latest National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) national poll, softball returns north the weekend after its excursion for a Northeast-10 Conference doubleheader at Le Moyne College.
Men's lacrosse hosts American International College tomorrow to begin its home and NE-10 slates, followed by a trip south to play at Rollins (Fla.) College on March 16 and Florida Institute of Technology on March 18 before returning north to visit No. 7 Le Moyne on March 21. Le Moyne's ranking is from the March 9 United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) national poll, while Florida Tech is receiving votes toward the poll.
Women's lacrosse opens its season on Saturday with a road contest against NE-10 foe No. 4 Le Moyne before visiting Assumption College on March 16 and Roberts Wesleyan (N.Y.) College on March 17. The Purple Knights round out Spring Break with their home opener against No. 1 Adelphi University, the defending national champion, on March 21. Adelphi's and Le Moyne's rankings are from the March 9 Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) national poll. Assumption received votes toward that poll.
