Key Games

2/15 @ Manhattan

For the third consecutive season, the Keydets will open up against the Manhattan Jaspers. Last season, VMI defeated Manhattan in a narrow 11-10 contest, subduing a second-half comeback from the Jaspers. 

3/29 @ Hampton

The Keydets haven’t had much trouble with the Pirates, beating them handily each of the past four seasons. However, they will face a Hampton team with first-year head coach Rashad Devoe at the helm as the Pirates lacrosse program begins a new era. 

4/4 vs Bellarmine

Last season, VMI almost got their first-ever SoCon win against the Knights on the road, mounting a comeback from down 10-2 early in the third quarter. The Keydets came up short, losing 13-12.
