The Colgate Raiders are the 67th DI program and eighth from the Patriot League to release their 2022 men’s lacrosse schedule. The Raiders are coming off a 2021 campaign in which they went 3-7 (2-4 Patriot League) and saw their season end in the conference semifinals against Lehigh.
Raiders’ 2022 Schedule:
|3/5||Colgate||Boston U.||Patriot League|
|4/9||Army West Point||Colgate||Patriot League|
|4/30||Holy Cross||Colgate||Patriot League|
Air Force, Cornell, Harvard, Hobart, High Point, North Carolina
3/5 vs Boston U.: Colgate and Boston U. played three times last season. The Terriers won the first two meetings, 16-11, and, 14-10. In their third meeting in the Patriot League quarterfinals, Colgate came back from down 4-7 to score an 11-8 win. With both of these teams expected to be in the middle of the Patriot League, this game could be a meaningful one.
4/9 @ Army West Point: The Raiders ended the season on a 1-3 run in which they looked as good as they had all season. That run started with a 13-11 loss to Army in which Colgate trailed by one with just over a minute left before Army’s Brendan Nichtern put in the dagger with 21 seconds left. If Colgate want’t to make any sort of move up in the conference a win over the Black Knights could go a long way.
