For Immediate Release
Fort Wayne, Ind. – The Indiana Tech men’s lacrosse team dropped one spot to No. 11 in the most recent edition of the MCLA Division II Coaches Top 25 Poll released on Tuesday.
The Warriors began their 2013 season over the weekend against two Top 10 ranked teams – No. 6 North Dakota State University and No. 1 University of St. Thomas. Tech trailed NDSU 13-12 entering the fourth quarter, but the Bison shut out the Warriors over the final 15 minutes while scoring three times to hand Tech a 16-12 defeat.
Against St. Thomas, the Warriors held the defending national champions to just seven goals, and only one in the second half, but couldn’t get much going offensively and would fall 7-1.
Through the first two games, Craig Schaepkens has four goals and two assists while Dan Schaepkens has scored three times. Dylan Johnston has one goal to go along with a team-high three assists and has picked up nine groundballs.
The Warriors will host No. 14 Liberty University in their home opener on Friday, Mar. 15. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
