BANNER ELK, N.C. – The Lees-McRae College men's lacrosse team announced its fall schedule and some details about its upcoming alumni game as a part of Homecoming. The Bobcats will compete against Montreat and Methodist on the campus of Montreat on September 29. Game times for those two contests are set for 10:30 a.m. and noon. The alumni game, meanwhile, will take place on October 6 at 10 a.m.
"We are excited to compete this fall against both Methodist and Montreat," said LMC Head Coach Brad Dunn. "Both teams will provide us an opportunity to truly see where we are in our development as a program. Both Coach Nedbalski and Coach Kamholtz are building their programs the right way and have been nothing but supportive of the work that Coach Barrow and I are doing here at Lees-McRae."
The alumni game, which will take place on the LMC practice fields, makes its return this fall. The event also includes the opportunity to tailgate for LMC's soccer matches against Converse and Milligan later in the day.
"As alumni, both Coach Barrow and I had the common goal of bringing back this yearly tradition," Dunn said of this event. "We both believe that you must understand your past to drive the program forward, and what better way than to bring back those who have set the foundation. This year we have alumni from as far away as Dubai, UAE and as far back as the graduating class of 2002. We are excited to share all that the Bobcat Lacrosse program is and will be with these fine gentlemen!"
