JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Ten total home games and a trip to the West Coast highlights the Jacksonville University women's lacrosse 2019 schedule, as announced Friday afternoon by head coach Mindy McCord.
The Dolphins will face a trio of new opponents, playing host to UC Davis in the season opener (Feb. 15), welcoming Bryant in mid-March (Mar. 14), and facing new ASUN Conference associate member Kent State (Apr. 7).
A trip to the West Coast closes out February as Jacksonville pays a visit to Oregon (Feb. 22) and Southern California (Feb. 24) – an unexpected pair of opponents the Dolphins have previously faced in 2011 and 2017, respectively.
D.B. Milne Field awaits as the Dolphins return for a three-game home stand beginning with JU's fourth West Coast opponent – Fresno State – on March 1. Following their meeting with the Bulldogs on March 14, Jacksonville welcomes Marist to Duval for a St. Patrick's Day contest on March 17.
The Dolphins head north the following weekend and take on Temple for the first time ever in Philadelphia (Mar. 23) before opening ASUN Conference action at Howard the following day (Mar. 24).
Returning home to the Sunshine State, Jacksonville closes out the home portion of its schedule with six straight meetings in Duval beginning with Wofford (Mar. 29) and Furman (Mar. 31).
April brings a rematch of last year's ASUN Tournament final with Coastal Carolina (Apr. 5), along with welcoming first-year program Kent State down south (Apr. 7). Perennial NCAA Tournament foe Florida make the trip north for a midweek matchup on April 11 before ASUN newcomer Liberty makes the trek down from Virginia for a Sunday matinee on April 14.
Jacksonville closes out the season with a three-game road swing, beginning with a trip to Georgia to face ASUN foe Kennesaw State (Apr. 18) and close out the non-conference slate at Mercer (Apr. 20). Heading down I-95, the Dolphins then close out the regular season at Stetson (Apr. 28).
Hosted by Coastal Carolina, the ASUN Conference Tournament begins with the semifinal round on May 2 and concludes with the championship game on May 4.
