Lacrosse: Snow, Thick Ice Force Changes

Back-to-Back Games at Homewood Field Sunday

February 21, 2007

TOWSON, MD — Both of Goucher's lacrosse teams were originally scheduled to launch their 2007 seasons this coming weekend in Gopher Stadium — the men against Greensboro on Saturday and the women against Endicott the following day.

Those two contests will still take place, but with snow and thick ice still covering the playing field inside Gopher Stadium, they have been moved to Homewood Field at Johns Hopkins and will be played as a doubleheader on Sunday.

The women's game against Endicott is still slated to begin at noon, followed at approximately 2:30 by the men's contest against Greensboro.

"We hate to give up playing even one game in our stadium, but at the same time, both of our teams are anxious to get their seasons under way," said Geoff Miller, Goucher's athletics director. "We're very grateful to Johns Hopkins for allowing the use of its excellent facility and hope this tremendous relationship we have developed with them will continue for many years."
