Prep For 2012 Season Begins With Scrimmages

3 Teams Over Next 2 Weekends at Reese

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Yale men's lacrosse team gets its first test of the 2012 pre-season this Sunday at 1 when the Siena Saints come to Reese Stadium for a scrimmage.

The Bulldogs, led by head coach Andy Shay, are coming off a pair of 10-4 seasons with help from a talented senior class that includes captain Michael Pratt, a midfielder from Garden City, N.Y.

The Saints went 13-5 in 2011, winning last year's MAAC Championship before dropping their first-round NCAA game at Syracuse.

Yale hosts both Tufts (5 pm) and Quinnipiac (7 pm) next Saturday in its final scrimmages before opening the regular season at home against St. John's on Feb. 25 at 1:30.
