BALTIMORE - The Loyola University Maryland women’s lacrosse team has announced its 2012 fall schedule. The Greyhounds will scrimmage four 2012 NCAA Tournament participants throughout September and October, including three at Ridley Athletic Complex and two in a play day at Maryland.

Events will begin this weekend with the 10th-annual Diane Geppi-Aikens Memorial Run on Saturday, Sept. 22 at 8:30 a.m. Following the run, the Greyhounds will host their annual Alumnae Game at Ridley Athletic Complex at 11 a.m. To register for the race, click here.

Delaware will be Loyola’s first opponent, as the Blue Hens head to Baltimore on Saturday, Sept. 29, for a 4:30 p.m., contest. The Greyhounds will also scrimmage 2012 NCAA Champion Northwestern on Saturday, Oct. 6 at 2:30 p.m., in addition to 2012 NCAA quarterfinalist North Carolina on Sunday, Oct. 14 at 9:30 a.m. All three contests will be played at Ridley Athletic Complex.

Loyola will close out its fall ball schedule with a play day at Maryland against a pair of NCAA Tournament participants on Sunday, Oct. 21. The Greyhounds will scrimmage the Terrapins, the 2012 ACC Champions and NCAA semifinalists, at 1 p.m., before taking on local-rival Towson at 2:15 p.m.

The Greyhounds are coming off a season in which they won their second-straight BIG EAST title and made a second-consecutive appearance in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament.
