BLACK MOUNTAIN, NC - The Montreat College men's lacrosse team dropped a 20-6 decision to Lees-McRae on Tuesday at Pulliam Stadium.

The Cavaliers (0-3) opned up a 1-0 lead after Kyndell Overton (FR/Halethorpe, MD) found Jordan Faubert for a goal at the 11:17 mark of the first period. Mark Switzer (JR/Lakeside, CA) would add another goal and the Cavaliers trailed 5-2 after the frame. In the second period, the Bobcats held Montreat scoreless while ripping off eleven goals to take a 16-2 lead into halftime.

The second half proved to be evenly played as both teams scored a pair of goals in each period. For the Cavaliers, Overton found Chris Jackson (FR/Hendersonville, NC) at the 8:34 mark and just 23 seconds later Noah Robertson (FR/Wilmington, NC) connected with Switzer, who scored his second goal of the contest. In the fourth period, Chris Jackson got his second goal of the game before Robertson scored the final goal for Montreat off of an assist from Jackson.

The Cavaliers were outshot 55-20 by the Bobcats but held a 50-49 advantage in ground balls. The team will be back in action on Saturday, February 25th when they travel to St. Louis, MO to take on #3 Missouri-Baptist at 10:00am EST.

BLACK MOUNTAIN, NC - The Montreat College men's lacrosse team dropped a 22-1 decision to Keiser University on Saturday at Pulliam Stadium.

In late October, the men's lacrosse team held its fall prospect day for potential student-athletes. The Cavaliers invited 19 potential recruits - all of whom attended - for fellowship and a competitive scrimmage alongside current players.

"The day gave these guys a chance to see the school, meet our players, and get a feel for our program philosophy and expectations -- what drives us. It also gave us a chance to see what kind of men they are, and how they work with our existing players," said men's head coach, Will McMinn.

The intentionally limited size of the invited group gave each player the opportunity for extended playing time and access to the Montreat community. 

"We identified a number of terrific young men and strong lacrosse players, who seem to be a great fit," said McMinn.

Of the 19 men who attended the event, twelve have committed so far to play lacrosse at Montreat. Coach McMinn and Coach Kamholtz are very excited about the quality of men and the level of lacrosse player that are on the horizon for Montreat's lacrosse program.
