LACROSSE CHAMPIONSHIP PAGE

AMHERST, Mass.—Massachusetts women’s lacrosse, ranked No. 13/10 nationally, will try to be the first Atlantic 10 team in history to win five consecutive conference titles when it hosts the 2013 A-10 Conference Lacrosse Championship this weekend.

Standing in the way of the top-seeded Minutewomen are Duquesne, Temple and George Washington. The two-round championship begins Friday with the semifinals when UMass and GW square off at 1:00 pm, followed by the Duquesne-Temple game at 3:30 pm. The winners advance to Sunday’s final at 1:00 pm. That game will air live on CBS Sports Network.

For the first time, the winner of the Championship will clinch an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. This is a change from previous years where the winner advanced to an NCAA Play-in game. It’s also a historic opportunity for Temple to win a record sixth title and for Duquesne and GW it’s a chance to win their first-ever A-10 crowns.

UMass is led by Offensive Player of the Year junior attacker Katie Ferris and All-Conference defensive stalwart Kelsey McGovern. The Minutewomen are 15-2 overall and were 7-0 in league play this season. They clinched the No. 1 seed Sunday with a 16-6 win over Duquesne, which was UMass’ 12th-straight win. Coach Angela McMahon, who was voted the 2013 A-10 Coach of the Year will try to lead her squad to a fifth consecutive title, which would break the current mark of four straight, held by both UMass and Temple.

Duquesne, the second seed will be looking to avenge that Sunday loss to Massachusetts, but the Dukes will need to get past a talented Temple team on Friday first. Led by A-10 Midfielder of the Year Amada Kidder and Defensive Player of the Year Kristen Gregory, Duquesne finished A-10 play at 5-2. The Dukes, who also boast the Rookie of the Year in Lib Lowry, are 10-6 overall and have won seven of their last nine matches.

Third-seeded Temple is shooting for its first title since 2008. The Owls opened league play strong, starting 3-0 before losing a tight 12-10 match to UMass. Stephany Parcell and Charlotte Swavola – both All-Conference selections – lead the Owls offensively and in the midfield. TU also has a host of young talent, with three All-Rookie selections that helped Temple finish the regular season at 4-3 in the A-10 and 9-7 overall.

George Washington, the fourth seed also finished the season at 4-3 in league play and 9-7 overall. The Colonials four All-Conference selections: Jamie Bumgardner, Caitlyn O’Brien, Jenn Seitz, and goalkeeper Jess Hicks will be instrumental if GW wants to win its first-ever title.

Friday’s matches will be streamed for free on Atlantic10.com. Tickets to the Championship are $6 for adults, $4 for children under 16 and senior citizens. Atlantic 10 students are admitted free with a valid student ID. Adult two-day passes are also available for $10. All tickets may be purchased at the gate.
