BALTIMORE - The Loyola University Maryland women’s lacrosse team will be one of two regular-season women’s lacrosse games nationally televised on ESPNU this spring. The Greyhounds’ contest at Johns Hopkins on Wednesday, Feb. 26 will be broadcast on the network.
The Charles Street rivals will meet for the 14th time in program history this spring and for the third-straight year as Division I programs. The Greyhounds have dominated the series, which dates back to 1975, holding an overall record of 12-1.
Loyola won all 10 meetings while the programs competed at the Division II level from 1976-81, and earned a 31-3 victory in 1982, the year the Greyhounds moved to Division I. It took 30 years for the programs to renew their neighborhood rivalry after that, but the Greyhounds came away with the 11-7 victory at Homewood Field in 2012.
In the most recent meeting, the Blue Jays were able to pick up their first win in the series, an 11-8 decision last season at Ridley Athletic Complex.
This will mark the first television appearance for the Greyhounds since they captured the 2012 BIG EAST Championship title with a 13-7 win over then-No. 2 Syracuse in the Carrier Dome on May 5. That contest was broadcast live on CBS Sports Network.
Loyola will open its 42nd season of competition on Saturday, Feb. 15 when it heads to Virginia.
