Men's Field Lacrosse (League)
About the Club
The lacrosse team competes in the Maritime University Field Lacrosse League (MUFLL), which includes Dalhousie, StFX, Acadia, UNB, and Mount Allison. The regular season consists of 10 games, a home and away game against each of the 5 other teams.
Games typically run from mid-September to the end of October, with 1 or 2 games each weekend. The season culminates with a championship weekend on the first weekend of November. Saint Mary’s hosted championship weekend in 2013, and it has since been hosted by Dalhousie and StFX.
With an improvement from 2-8 in 2015 to 6-4 in 2016, we are looking to continue trending upwards for the 2017 season.
