Strong senior leadership coupled with standout underclassmen identifies St. Lawrence as a force to be reckoned with both in the Liberty League Division III Conference and the New York region where the Saints narrowly missed an NCAA tournament berth after their 2010 conference championship last fall. The 2011 season will be the second for Head Coach Shelly Roiger and the Saints are hoping to follow up their first conference title with an initial appearance in the national tournament in November.
The Saints' schedule this fall will undoubtedly be their toughest in recent memory as the Liberty League moves to a double round-robin format. Conference opponents include Bard, Clarkson, RIT, Skidmore, Union and Vassar and together they join the Saints to form a highly competitive Liberty League conference, perhaps the toughest conference top to bottom in the New York region. St. Lawrence begins their season by hosting two tournaments this fall, the inaugural Canton Classic as well as the Victory Promotions Tournament that is co-hosted with SUNY Potsdam. Outside of conference play the Saints will compete in tournaments at RIT and the University of Dallas-Texas before they travel to the University of Rochester who will host the challenging New York Regional Tournament the last weekend of the regular season.
The Saints will play a total of thirty-five matches this fall before playoffs with only five of them being played during the week as a sign of commitment towards academics and minimal class time missed.
