Johns Hopkins Announces 2012 Schedule
from press release
BALTIMORE – Johns Hopkins women's lacrosse coach Janine Tucker announced the Blue Jays' 2012 schedule today, which features 10 home games and two nationally televised games. The Blue Jays face a tough schedule this season, including defending national champion Northwestern and eight teams ranked in the Inside Lacrosse Preseason Top 20.
Hopkins will open the season with back-to-back road games at George Mason (February 18) and Mount St. Mary's (February 22). The Blue Jays will then host the Denver Pioneers in their home opener on Friday, February 24 at Homewood Field as JHU closes a stretch of three games in six days. The game versus the Pioneers kicks off a four-game home stand that will also see Loyola (February 29), Stony Brook (March 3) and Towson (March 7) visit Homewood Field. The Blue Jays and the Greyhounds, separated by just over a mile, will meet for the first time since 1982. Hopkins and Towson will square off on ESPNU, in the first of two televised games for the Blue Jays.
JHU will travel down I-95 on March 14 to take on Georgetown under the lights, followed by home games versus Harvard (March 17) and Princeton (March 25). The Blue Jays then open American Lacrosse Conference (ALC) play at Vanderbilt on April 1. This will be the third time in the last five seasons that the Blue Jays have opened ALC play against the Commodores.
Hopkins returns home to take on Florida (April 7) and Virginia (April 11) in a challenging four-day stretch for the Blue Jays. Hopkins' meeting with Virginia, the first since 2008, will be televised by ESPNU. The Blue Jays hit the road for games at Northwestern (April 15) and Penn State (April 21) before closing out the regular season at home against UMBC (April 25) and Ohio State (April 28). Hopkins then travels to Florida for the sixth annual ALC Tournament May 3-5.
