Lacrosse will find an unlikely home at the New York Mets' Citi Field this spring when the Navy Midshipmen play in the inaugural Metropolitan Lacrosse Classic on Sunday, March 17, 2013. The day opens with a Michigan-Colgate game at 1 pm followed by the Mids vs. Holy Cross at 4 pm. The Mids are 9-0 all-time against the Crusaders and the game will be a Patriot League contest.

The following week the Mids will play another Patriot League rival, Colgate, on March 23 at the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic at M&T Bank in Baltimore.

Navy's 2013 season gets underway on January 26 when they face Duke in an exhibition contest in Durham.
