The Saint Joseph’s Hawks are the 14th team to announce their 2020 schedule. The Hawks come into the 2020 season after a 2019 campaign where they went 7-7 overall, 3-3 in the NEC, and missed the NEC tournament. They will be in the West Division this season as the NEC enters a new era with two divisions in men’s lacrosse.

2/15 @ Penn State
Former CAA foes, these two meet for the first time since 2013. It will be a very tough early contest for the Hawks in their second game of the season. The Hawks have never beaten the Nittany Lions.
2/29 @ Monmouth
In a battle of the Hawks, Saint Joseph’s will be looking to grab another with against Monmouth after securing the 8-6 victory in 2019. Goalie Mike Adler went off against Monmouth to help them seal the deal last season.
3/6 vs Drexel
Saint Joseph’s plays their first game if the Philly 4 Lacrosse Classic against Drexel. The Hawks will be looking to avenge a 7-10 loss last season and look to get their third win all-time against the Dragons. These two have played each year since 1993 with Saint Joseph’s last win coming in 2018.
3/28 vs Mount St. Mary’s
The Hawks ended their season last year with a narrow 7-6 loss against the Mountaineers. The loss helped keep the Hawks out of the NEC tournament and ended a five-game winning streak against the Mountaineers. Saint Joseph’s will surely want to avenge last year’s loss and possibly start up a new streak.
