Lacrosse season opens at home with Feb. 17 Towson game

Lacrosse coach Dave Pietramala last week announced the Blue Jays’ 2012 schedule, which includes eight home games, the Konica Minolta Inside Lacrosse Face-Off, Big City Classics and a return by Army to Homewood Field for JHU’s annual Homecoming game. The Jays will prep for the challenging schedule with scrimmages against Penn State and Cornell in early February, and the 14 regular season games will match the school record for most in a season.

The 2012 season opens with a three-game home stand, starting with Towson on Feb. 17 and followed by Delaware on Feb. 21 and Siena on Feb. 25. The Blue Jays then make their first trip to Princeton since 2005 to take on the Tigers on March 2. Other regular-season opponents are Manhattan, Syracuse, Virginia, North Carolina, Albany, Maryland, Navy and Loyola. To see the complete schedule, go to
