It was absurdly early last year when Navy opened its lacrosse season on Feb. 9. In fact, with the noon start it was the earliest opener in Division I history.
Well, they’ll go ahead and meet again on a Saturday in early February. Except this time it’ll be on Feb. 7.
So while the thought of thinking lacrosse quite that early sends a bit of shive down even my spine, here’s the full rundown of Navy’s 2009 schedule, which includes the return of North Carolina to regular-season slate:
Feb. 7: VMI, noon
Feb. 14: Ohio State, noon
Feb. 20: at North Carolina, 7:30
Feb. 28: at Bucknell, 1
