Women's Lacrosse Host Laxtoberfest Play Day this Saturday.September 29, 2014
BREVARD, N.C. – The Brevard College women’s lacrosse team will be hosting the Laxtoberfest Play Day that will include six schools, including Brevard in an all-day event on Saturday, October 4 on the campus of Brevard College. The five other schools will include Appalachian State, Columbia College, University of Pikeville, Southern Virginia, and North Greenville University.
Tornados head coach, Frank Rogers plans to start a new tradition at Brevard with something he did at his previous school. He recalls from past experience that these games drew good crowds and always had good competition for every school.
“I feel we have a good group of schools coming and it will be a good opportunity for our young team to line up against someone else”, Coach Rogers said. “We are very excited about this year and we have kind of taken on the motto of ‘We would like to properly introduce you to BC women’s lacrosse’”.
Each school will play three games, with the first one starting at 8 a.m. between Columbia and Brevard. The last game is slated to start at 4 p.m. between Appalachian State and Brevard. Each game will have two, 20 minute halves with a five minute halftime and a running clock.
Coach Rogers went on to talk about his young talented group of freshman is excited to combine that with a strong group of returning players that he believes will represent Brevard College very well.
“For most of them, this weekend will be their first taste of real college lacrosse, typically a lot faster, stronger game then they have seen before, but they have been working very hard and we are excited to line up against other schools and see where we are at”, he explained. “With this being Homecoming weekend we are really hoping that the community and alumni will come out and catch some of the games and really see what this new sport on campus is all about”.
All games will be free of charge. A full schedule of each game is below.
