The Men’s Lacrosse Club Team will build on last season’s success as it starts its 5th season.
Defenseman Joe Estes, junior psychology major from Denton, said the team has been working hard towards becoming a dominant lacrosse club and a force to be reckoned with. As a club team, not funded by the Department of Athletics, the club received funds from the Students’ Association.
“We’re just trying to rebuild on last years success,” Estes said. “We have a lot of good returners that know how to play and also a big freshmen recruiting class that we are excited about.”
The team will schedule 10 games for this upcoming season against the University Of North Texas, Baylor University, the University Of Texas-Dallas, Dallas Baptist University, Oklahoma State University, Incarnate Word, Tulsa and etc.
“Right Now we are basically self coached, we run practices ourselves and give the younger players a run down on how to do the drills,” said defenseman Hunter Rhodes, sophomore political science major from Austin.
Estes said it’s hard to find a coach in Abilene since the city does not have a Lacrosse “culture.”
“There are not a lot of people who would even be willing to coach us let alone even know how to coach Lacrosse, so it is mainly self-run and self-taught by the officers on the team,” said Estes.
