Anytime high school athletes can get an opportunity to play on a collegiate playing surface its always a thrill for everyone. On April 10, Johnny Unitas Stadium on the campus of Towson University will play host to a doubleheader between Towson High and Dulaney men’ s and women’s varsity lacrosse programs.
The men’s game is slated to begin at 6pm and the ladies will play at 8pm. Both programs have a storied rivalry and to be able to move the highly anticipated match ups between both programs to a Division 1 field is pretty awesome.
Towson men’s coach Shawn Burke shares his excitement about this opportunity for his team, “We are very excited that the Towson versus Dulaney lacrosse game will be coming back to Towson University this spring. This is one of the best lacrosse rivalries in the state of Maryland and we could not be more excited to be back at Towson University in a great competitive environment. I really appreciate the hard work of the athletic director‘s at both schools as well as the administration at Towson University for making this happen.”
The Generals are coming off a 2018 season where they reached the state semifinals.
The Dulaney women’s team is two years removed from winning the state title and the Lions were finalists last season and are aiming to return to the title game in 2019.
“There has been many legendary high school games between Dulaney and Towson and we are thrilled to bring this rivalry game back to Towson University!” said Dulaney mens coach Kyle Fiat. “It is an honor for both of our programs to play in Johnny Unitas stadium and we appreciate all the efforts that it took to make this game a reality!”
Towson women’s coach Jamie Giffuni shares her thoughts on, “We are so excited about this opportunity. The atmosphere in the Dulaney game is always extremely exciting and the competition is high. Playing in this venue is going to take the energy to the next level and give the kids an experience they will never forget. We are grateful to TU and our athletic directors for giving the girls this opportunity to play on a bigger stage.”
