BYU lacrosse faces Boise St. in the first game of the season


BYU lacrosse starts its season against Boise State Friday at 7 p.m.

This is BYU’s third year competing against Boise State. The Cougars have defeated the Broncos each time they played.

Boise State and BYU combine for 32 freshmen and less than 10 seniors. This is enough to make three full freshmen lacrosse teams and have substitutes.

“We have quite a few freshmen on the team that will have to step up,” BYU head coach Matt Schneck said.

There will be a few freshmen starting for BYU this year, including attacker Jayden Haws and defender Rick Rose.

“It’s my first real college game,” Rose said. “There is a new system I have to review in my mind and get my head straight for the game, but it is business when it comes game time.”

With all the youth on this team it is hard to predict how the game will play out, but the Cougars have practiced and scrimmaged since last year to prepare for this season.

“This is the one game of the year with the most preparation,” Schneck said. “Everything from preseason built up to this game.”

The game starts Friday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. at North Field in Provo. Tickets can be bought at the gate.
