Clinton, S.C. – The Presbyterian College lacrosse team, led by coach Bob Dachille, is set to wrap up their fall 2017 schedule with a full scrimmage versus the Wofford Terriers on Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m.
This is the fourth weekend the lacrosse team has played fall scrimmages. So far in October they have traveled to Limestone, Furman and Coastal Carolina to scrimmage other schools from around the area.
“This has been the most productive fall that we have had in my time here at PC,” said coach Dachille. “We have definitely raised the bar in terms of both talent and also our fitness level. Fall has been an amazing time to throw out a bunch of random lineups, mix and match personnel and really see our players produce. They have been remarkably receptive to what we are trying to achieve this fall.”
In the 2018 Spring season the Blue Hose will be looking to improve upon a 2-14 record in 2017. They averaged 6.56 goals per game in 2017 and had a .355 shooting percentage.
Presbyterian College had four individuals score 13+ goals in 2017 and three of the four of them return for 2018. Lauren Schaaf (19 goals, 5 assists) and Cady Roberts (16 goals, 8 assists) each led the way with 24 points and they both return for their senior and junior seasons.
“It has been an incredible mix of leadership from returners coupled with the enthusiasm of our newcomers,” said coach Dachille. “What we have learned this fall is that the pieces to the puzzle of fielding a truly competitive team in the Big South are there, we as coaches just have to put them together in the spring. I am extremely excited about the journey ahead.”
The scrimmage on Sunday wraps up the fall scrimmage season. The next time you will be able to see them is in the season opener at Furman on Valentine’s Day or in the home opener versus Manhattan on February 19.
