For the first time in 2018, the Hollins lacrosse team played a match outside of the Roanoke Valley when they made the trek east to face Old Dominion Athletic Conference rival Virginia Wesleyan.

At least the two teams would not have to deal with the snow that marred the previous pair of contests as N.C. Wesleyan was the opponent. Each team came into the match looking for their first win of the season and it would be Hollins last chance to pick up a victory in front of the home faithful until later in the month.

During the starting lineups and National Anthem in advance of the lacrosse game with Muskingum, the weather couldn't have been more perfect for a mid-March afternoon.
