Varsity Series 2018 Preview: Lacrosse
Next up in the 2018 Varsity Series is the Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse. The event will be held at Lady Bay on the 9th May. The women are up first at 14:00 with the men’s fixture following at 16:00. The Lacrosse Varsity is always an exciting and fiercely competitive encounter and this year’s fixture will be no different!
In last year’s fixture UoN Women’s Lacrosse ran out victorious 21-0, whilst the men were narrowly defeated 8-11. However, it has been UoN who have been historically dominant in this fixture, winning both the men’s and women’s fixtures in 2015 and 2016!
In their respective BUCS campaigns, UoN Men’s Lacrosse finished 3rd in the BUCS Premier North behind 2nd placed NTU and narrowly lost to Durham University in the BUCS Championship, which NTU eventually won. When UoN and NTU met in their BUCS fixtures it was NTU who came out on top in both fixtures. UoN Women’s Lacrosse also had a successful season finishing 2nd in the BUCS Premier North league and narrowly losing in the semi-final of the BUCS Championship to Cambridge University. The foundations are therefore set for an exhilarating encounter when the two universities meet in the 2018 Varsity Series!
