Key Games

3/18 @ Johns Hopkins: After not playing or being able to play in the case of 2021 and 2020, the Navy-Johns Hopkins rivalry is back on in 2022. It’ll be the first time these two teams have faced each other since 2017 when the Blue Jay beat the Midshipmen 15-8. Navy will be searching for their first win over Hopkins since 2012.

4/9 vs Loyola: Navy faced Loyola three times last season in what was a fun series. Loyola won the first meeting 14-10 while Navy bested the Greyhounds, 14-12 just two weeks later. Ultimately, Loyola ended the Midshipmen’s season with a 16-9 win in the Patriot League quarterfinals. These two could very well meet multiple times again in 2022.

4/23 @ Army: One of the biggest games each year, the Midshipmen will travel to West Point to play arch rival Army the second-to-last weekend of the regular season for the 102nd all-time meeting between these two schools on the lacrosse field. Navy stunned Army last season, winning 9-4. As always, circle this one and throw out the record books because anything can happen in Navy-Army.
