PAXTON, Mass – Featuring matchups against Bard College, Benedictine University, from Illinois, along with their Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) slate, the 2018 AMC men's lacrosse schedule was announced earlier this month.
Head coach Nate Mayo enters his fifth season at the helm for the AMCATS and will lead the men in their 2018 campaign that will be headlined by a ten-game GNAC schedule.
"We are looking forward to a good season here at AMC," Coach Mayo said, "We are coming off a tough year but, with 12 new players coming in and a number of returners we are preparing for a successful 2018 campaign that has a number of challenges for us out of conference to go along with the usual suspects in conference play. We know that it will take hard work to get to where we want to be as a program with the schedule that we have but the coaching staff and the players are prepared to work hard and show the AMC community and the GNAC what we are capable of." Added Mayo.
The 'Cats will open the season with a non-conference matchup against Mitchell college on the road on February 21st at 4pm. Their first home contest will be three days after that against Bard college at 1pm.
