The first round of the Division I men’s lacrosse NCAA tournament is over, and the quarterfinals for next weekend are set. Here is the schedule:
Saturday, May 19
(at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis)
Maryland (10-5) vs. No. 2 seed Johns Hopkins (12-3), 12 p.m.
Denver ((9-6) vs. No. 1 seed Loyola (15-1), 2:30 p.m.
Sunday, May 20
(at PPL Park in Chester, Pa.)
No. 5 seed Virginia (12-3) vs. No. 4 seed Notre Dame (12-2), 12 p.m.
Colgate (15-3) vs. No. 3 seed Duke (14-4), 2:30 p.m.
As pointed out by Patrick Stevens of the Washington Times, the attendance record for a quarterfinal is 17,017 in 2008 when Navy, Johns Hopkins, Maryland and Virginia descended on Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. With Weather.com projecting a forecast of sun, 75 degrees and just a 10 percent chance of rain for Saturday, that record could be broken.
