Team beats UCD in season opener, stands 1-1 overall
Metro men’s lacrosse enters the new season hoping to bring awareness to the team and to let students know they, in fact, exist. With a big win against UCD to open the season, the Roadrunners plan to ride the wave as long as they can.
With many freshmen and a few transfers on the team, Metro is looking to make a name for itself. Sophomore attackman Logan Bruss is a rising star. Transferring from Mesa State, Bruss brings experience to the team and is not afraid to push through the defense to score some goals.
“He’s going to be one to watch out for, for sure,” said head coach Aaron Meyer.
Meyer sets a goal for the boys not only on the field, but also on campus. Awareness is a huge deal for the Roadrunners.
“We like to do a lot of stuff on campus, like bake sales,” Meyer said. “We’re selling T-shirts, sweatshirts, sweatpants, all that good stuff.”
Fundraising isn’t the only way that men’s lacrosse is getting its name out. Metro wants to make a dent in its league, the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association, and finish atop its division.
“We’re building a really good team right now. We’ve had a lot of transfers from NCAA schools that have come to play with us,” Meyer said. “We’re trying to mirror the NCAA program. So far, to this point, we’ve done that, even talent-wise.”
Metro’s home games are at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, particularly on field 10. Watch them face Mines March 5 at 9 p.m.
