The Colonials rode a three-game winning streak last season to end non-conference play, but ultimately finished their shortened 2020 campaign at .500.
Lacrosse announced its spring 2022 season schedule last Monday.
The season is scheduled to begin on Saturday, February 19, when the team takes to the field in Annapolis to take on the Navy. The team will look to improve in head coach Jennifer Ulehla’s second full season at the helm, following a 6-6 record last year and an 0-7 record in 2020 in which the team was unable to play its conference slate.
The Colonials are set to play their first three non-conference away games where they face Villanova and UMBC. After a four-day hiatus, GW will return to the Mount Vernon campus on March 2 where they will face American rival Crosstown to wrap up their home non-conference slate.
After another four-day break, the Colonials are set to face another Crosstown rival, this time Georgetown on March 12, with the venue yet to be determined. The final two non-conference games will be played at the Vern where the Colonials will face Kennesaw State and Longwood.
Last year, GW ended its non-conference condensed schedule with a 3-2 overall record, winning three straight against Old Dominion, American and Longwood.
Atlantic 10 conference play will begin in North Carolina as the Colonials take on Davidson. GW will return from a four-day break to face Richmond at home.
The Colonials will once again take the road to Philadelphia where they will face La Salle. Holding a two-day break where they will return to DC for the final home game the following week, they will face St. Bonaventure.
GW will embark on a three-game tour where they will visit Massachusetts, George Mason and Saint Joseph in a one-week period beginning April 8.
The Colonials will return home to complete their final two games where they will face Duquesne and VCU in hopes of establishing the final points needed to qualify for the championship. Last season, GW finished the conference roster with a 3-4 overall record, which caused them to miss the playoffs.
GW has neither had a winning record nor made the playoffs since the 2013 season, in which they went 9-8 before losing to No. 13 Massachusetts 13-5 in the semi-finals of the A-10 Championship.
This year, the A-10 Championship will be held in Amherst, Mass. from April 28 to May 1, where the Colonials will battle for a spot in the NCAA Tournament, seeking their first spot since 2007.
