DAVIDSON, N.C. — After starting off the season with three of their first four games on the road, the Davidson lacrosse team will return to Richardson Stadium on Wednesday, March 1 to host Winthrop University at 4:30 p.m.
Prior to opening draw, the program will celebrate its graduating class of 2023.
ABOUT THE EAGLES… Winthrop is 1-1 to start off the 2023 campaign, defeating Kennesaw State 16-13 on opening day before falling 21-1 at Clemson on February 18. Junior Grayson McKenzie leads the Eagles with five goals on the year, while Emma Calhoun and Maddie Hodgson have shared time in goal.
AROUND THE NATION… Davidson’s offense has begun to establish itself in multiple national rankings, as the Wildcats rank 24th in assists per game (6.75) and 18th in points per game (21.5).
