Richmond men's lacrosse set to open second season

Spiders lacrosse ready for second season

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Richmond men's lacrosse team opens it's second season of play Saturday afternoon at home against St. Joseph's.  The game starts at 1:00.

The Spiders made NCAA history last year when they qualified for the NCAA tournament.  Richmond was the first ever first-year program to make it to the tournament.  They did so by winning the Atlantic Sun conference tournament.

Richmond - along with the rest of the Atlantic Sun - relocated to the Southern Conference this season.  The Spiders were 6-11 last season and started the year with five straight losses.
