In 2018, the San Diego State Men’s Lacrosse team celebrated one of the best seasons ever and made the Southwestern Lacrosse Conference playoffs for the second time in program history! The Aztecs are now ready to take the next step in becoming an elite MCLA program. To achieve this goal, they have scheduled a challenging fall-ball slate.
SDSU graduates four starters from last year’s squad and brings back a ton of talent including senior Adrian Jeffries and junior Patrick Greene. There are also a lot of new faces on campus. The Aztecs welcomed their largest & most diverse class to come onto campus with 23 freshmen from 12 different states (CA, AZ, OR, WA, IL, NJ, NY, PA, VA, RI, MD, CT) and Alberta, Canada. “The goal this fall is to get all our players to gel on & off the field, get the freshman experience playing at the collegiate level, and learn how to play within the new rules” says head coach Jesse Foss.
The fall schedule is highlighted by contests against several post-collegiate club teams. These post-collegiate rosters are filled with current MLL players, as well as former NCAA and MCLA stand outs. These games will serve as great preparation for the talented teams SDSU will face in the spring.
On Saturday, October 20th, the 2nd annual Red-Black Game will kick off Alumni weekend. Last year, more than 60 alumni from the past 41 years showed up to participate, and the club is expecting another great turnout for this year’s alumni game!
The Aztecs will host 2018 MCLA runner up Chapman as well as UCLA, USC, and SBCC on Saturday, October 27th for a one day tournament. This will be the first chance to compete against other MCLA programs. They will conclude their fall season competing in the Las Vegas Showcase on Saturday, November 10th.
