As the collegiate games open this weekend in Division I, Philly men’s lacrosse followers can gear for the Philly 4 Lacrosse Classic on March 8 (Wednesday) and 11 (Saturday).
The event features the four men’s D1 teams (Drexel, Penn, St. Joseph’s, Villanova) located in or just outside the city limits. Games will be held at two locations, St. Joseph’s Sweeney Field (March 8) and Penn’s Franklin Field (March 11).
On March 8, Drexel squares off with Villanova at 5 p.m. and Penn and St. Joe’s meet at 8 p.m. Saturday’s games will start with Drexel facing St. Joe’s at noon; Villanova and Penn meet at approximately 2:30 p.m.
“It’s a really cool thing we have going with the Philly 4 Lacrosse Classic,” said St. Joe’s coach Taylor Wray. “There is really nothing else like this in D-I lacrosse: four local teams, competing back-to-back, on two separate occasions, in the same week.
“If you are part of the Philly lacrosse community, this is going to be the biggest event of the spring. We are looking forward to hosting here at SJU, and I hope our fans will come out in droves to support the event.”
