FIRST DRAW

The University of Dallas women's lacrosse team begins a quick slate of April matches with a road tilt at Midland University. The start time has been pushed back to later in the afternoon around 4 p.m. due to an earlier match being rescheduled. After being off the last weekend, the Crusaders finish a five-game road trip on Sunday with the single match.

Dallas is coming off a neutral site matchup with Carroll University. Host school Westminster College did not get to take on the Crusaders due not having enough active players.
