The Lees-McRae Lady Bobcats lacrosse team was recently picked to finish sixth in this year's Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference preseason coaches poll. The Lady Bobcats return seven letter winners from last season's 1-14 squad.
The Lady Bobcats will open the season February 13th at CVAC foe Belmont Abbey, who is picked to finish fourth in the preseason poll. Head Coach Andrea Duffy, (pictured top left), will begin her first season at the helm of the women's lacrosse program with nine freshman. The CVAC shows their strength nationally with three teams ranked in the 'Inside Lacrosse' DII preseason Top Ten, with Queens at No. 6, Limestone at No. 7, and Pfeiffer at No. 9.
Last season's regular season and tournament champion Limestone College received top spot in this year's coaches poll followed by Pfeiffer and Queens.
