Cortland Beats Rival TCNJ!

Saturday was a day for many celebrations in Cortland, NY. St. Patrick's Day was celebrated by the irish and those who wish they were irish for the day and the Cortland varsity women's lacrosse team celebrated their victorious home opener versus all time rival, The College Of New Jersey. Every year we battle against TCNJ for the opportunity to have bragging rights all over again. The trend seems to be the home team takes the win, for my freshman year we won at home, last year my sophomore year we lost away, and this year my junior year, we sealed the win on our own home turf. TCNJ was ranked number 2 going into the match and we were ranked number 4. Being the underdog and beating a team with a higher rank, especially our rival team, was one of the greatest feelings. We have worked so hard for two and a half months straight, practicing 6 days a week, lifting all the time, and conditioning for unlimited hours. It was great to know that all our hard work paid off on Saturday. Our win against TCNJ did not come from a signal person or play, it was an all around team win that was achieved through greatness. Our team has great potential this year and I invite everyone to come to our home game tomorrow on the stadium versus St. Lawrence. I assure you the lady red dragons will not let you down!
