NORFOLK, Va. – The Old Dominion (0-0, 0-0 ASUN) lacrosse team hosts VCU (0-0, 0-0 A10) on Wednesday, Feb. 14 at 4 p.m. in their season opener. 

In season openers, the Monarchs own a 17-20 mark.

The Monarchs enter their first game of the season after a 9-9 overall record in 2017. In 2016, the Monarchs won the ASUN Tournament and earned an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament.

Head Coach Heather Holt has brought on 12 newcomers, including 10 freshman and two transfers. The team also returns seven starters from the 2017 squad. In preseason accolades, junior Kerri Caruso and senior Cydney Tutchton were named to the ASUN Preseason All-Conference Team.
