CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Returning a deep and talented roster this season, Harvard men's lacrosse has released its 2018 schedule. The slate features seven home games at Harvard Stadium or Jordan Field.
"I'm excited to announce our schedule for the upcoming season," said Chris Wojcik, The Frisbie Family Head Coach for Harvard Men's Lacrosse. "In addition to our Ivy League games, we will play teams from five other conferences. We look forward to the challenges we will face out of conference, along with the always competitive Ivy League.
