BERKELEY -Seven home games are slated on the 2013 California lacrosse schedule. After calling Witter Rugby Field home for two years, the Golden Bears will return to newly-renovated Memorial Stadium for Ginger Miles' second season at helm as head coach for the Bears.
"We're looking forward to exciting slate of games this spring," Miles said. "With a schedule including old conference foes, new and emerging programs and tough East Coast competitors it should be a very exciting season."
After kicking off the season with two road games on the East Coast (at James Madison and at UMBC), Cal will enjoy a four-game homestand. The first contests will be Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) conference games against Saint Mary's (March 5) and UC Davis (March 10), followed by home tilts against Iona (March 13) and Virginia Tech (March 16).
Following the homestand, the Bears will face in-state foe Fresno State on the road before heading back to the East Coast to square off against Fairfield and Yale in Connecticut. The road trip begins a tough stretch for the Bears, as the Fresno State game begins a stretch of six of seven games on the road. After the game against Yale, Cal returns to Berkeley for one game against Stetson (April 1) before heading back out for three straight MPSF road games against defending MPSF-champion Oregon, USC and San Diego State.
The Bears will end the season with two home games against Denver (April 19) and Senior Day against Stanford (April 27). The MPSF Tournament will take place at a location to be determined from May 2-4.
