Siena Women's Lacrosse opens its 17th season when the Saints travel to Bryant for a 3 p.m. matchup today. Fans can follow all the action through online streaming video and live stats while also checking out the Saints' season preview video.
Under the leadership of now fifth-year head coach Andrea Cofrin, the Saints have a new look entering the 2013 season. Siena graduated its top two scorers, starting goalie and a total of six starters from last year's team.
But the Saints do return six experienced starters and a strong young nucleus, eager to lead the program to an unprecedented fourth straight MAAC Tournament Appearance this spring.
Siena posted a 6-11 overall record last season and finished tied for third in the MAAC with a 3-3 conference mark. The Saints qualified for the MAAC Tournament for a third straight year by virtue of finishing as one of the top-four teams in the league.
Led by their four senior captains including Preseason All-MAAC selections Katie Maguire and Amanda Peguillan, the Saints were picked fifth in the MAAC Preseason Coaches' Poll. Siena is 4-0 all-time against Bryant including a 9-8 overtime win in Loudonville last season.
