The Holy Cross Crusaders are the 71st DI program and the ninth from the Patriot League to release their 2022 men’s lacrosse schedule. The Crusaders are coming off a 2021 campaign in which they went 2-4 (1-3 Patriot League) and saw their season cut short. It was year one of the J.L. Reppert era.
Crusaders’ 2022 Schedule:
|3/6||Army West Point||Holy Cross||Patriot League|
|3/12||Lehigh||Holy Cross||Patriot League|
|3/19||Boston U.||Holy Cross||Patriot League|
|3/26||Navy||Holy Cross||Patriot League|
|4/2||Holy Cross||Loyola||Patriot League|
|4/9||Holy Cross||Lafayette||Patriot League|
|4/17||Bucknell||Holy Cross||Patriot League|
|4/20||UMass Lowell||Holy Cross|
|4/29||Holy Cross||Colgate||Patriot League|
Merrimack, Michigan, Providence, Siena, UMass Lowell
4/9 vs Lafayette: Holy Cross recorded their second win of the Reppert era, and only in conference last season, over Lafayette. This is a game that the Crusaders will want to win again this season to help themselves rise up from near the bottom of the Patriot League.
4/29 vs Colgate: In a snowy overtime battle in early March, the Crusaders fell to the Raiders 11-10 in a game in which A.J. Fox made 12 saves and Dean DiNanno and T.J. Lynch combined for eight points. A win over Colgate would certainly help Holy Cross if they want any chance of moving up this spring.
