LSU Lacrosse January 26, 2011
BATON ROUGE - The LSU Lacrosse team begins its 2012 season on Friday against the Texas A&M Aggies on the LSU campus to open the overall Men's Collegiate Lacrosse Association campaign across the nation.
First faceoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. CT at the LSU Sports and Adventure Complex located on the corner of River Road and Gourrier Avenue.
Both squads will be forced to hit the ground running this season because the matchup will be a pivotal meeting between Lone Star Alliance conference rivals.
The two top finishers from each division reach the LSA Conference Tournament at the end of the regular season in May, so the winner will control its destiny for reaching the tournament.
LSU returns nine of ten starters from 2011 including leading goal scorer Jordan Ramirez. The sophomore standout was a key component for the Tigers a year ago tying for the team lead with 28 goals,
a Tiger freshman record.
Jacob Most begins his senior season holding school records in every major offensive category highlighted by 113 points,
85 goals, 28 assists as well as 4.52 points per game average.
The Port Washington, N.Y., native led the nation with 5.45 goals per game in 2010 to go along with All-LSA honors each of the past two seasons.
Senior Tim Trahan leads a young but experienced midfield as he is statistically the programs best-ever faceoff man, having compiled a 48% win percentage at the midfield x.
Michael Goodrich also begins 2012 coming off a freshman season that saw the Pennsylvanian do it all for the Tigers in 2011 facing off, scoring 18 goals and assisting on 12.
The LSU defense is led by seniors Matt Burger and Chippy Woodson as they headline a deep line of long sticks hungry to prove themselves.
The Tigers senior class is already the all-time winningest in LSU history having compiled 16 wins in the past three seasons.
LSU competes in the MCLA, a national organization of non-NCAA, college lacrosse programs. The MCLA currently operates in the US and Canada with 213 teams in two divisions, across ten conferences.
