Crusader Teams Face Busy Weekend of Home Events

BELMONT, N.C. -- It's a big weekend on the Belmont Abbey campus as three programs wrap up Spring Break with key events.

The men's lacrosse team, ranked sixth in the country and on a five-game winning streak, host Conference Carolinas rival Mount Olive at 1 p.m. at Alumni Field. The Trojans are also 5-1 and hold the No. 9 spot in the latest USILA Coaches Poll.

The baseball team returns to conference action with a three-game set against Southern Wesleyan as part of Alumni Weekend. After a 6 p.m. contest on Friday, the Crusaders and Warriors meet in a 1 p.m. doubleheader on Saturday. The program will host an alumni gathering on campus in the evening.

The softball team is hosting its Friends and Family weekend, starting Friday at 2 with a doubleheader against Converse. Unfortunately, Saturday's doubleheader against Lander had to be cancelled as the visitors are required to make up a previously postponed conference game, but that won't deter the Crusaders. They will play an intrasquad game with all the makings of regular-season game, beginning at 2.
