Inaugural Ashland Women’s Lacrosse Schedule Unveiled

LINK – ASHLAND UNIVERSITY WOMEN'S LACROSSE PAGE

The advancement of the Ashland University women's lacrosse program has taken another step, as its inaugural schedule has been released.

In the spring of 2019, the Eagle women will begin play with a 17-game schedule, including a full 13-game Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference slate. Ashland's first contest will be Feb. 23 at 1 p.m. at Ferguson Field vs. Notre Dame College. The program's first GLIAC game will be March 15 at McKendree.

"I'm excited to get one of those other little things on the to-do list done," said Ashland head coach Shaun Williamson. "Obviously, going into the GLIAC is going to be fun and exciting. There will be a couple new programs in the GLIAC, so we're not the only brand-new program.

"Number one, we get to open up at home. Being my fourth start-up, that's not always the case. It's going to be nice to get all that fanfare out of the way. (The non-conference schedule) gives us the opportunity to play some teams that have been around for a little bit. Lees-McRae is my alma mater and the first program I started, so that's coming full-circle."

In the spring of 2019, the GLIAC will have 10 member schools in women's lacrosse – Ashland, Davenport, Grand Valley State, Northern Michigan, Concordia-St. Paul (affiliate), Indianapolis (affiliate), Lewis (affiliate), Maryville (affiliate), McKendree (affiliate) and Upper Iowa (affiliate).

Ashland announced the addition of women's lacrosse on Sept. 11, 2017, and Williamson was named the program's first head coach on Oct. 31, 2017.
