Providence, RI - Brown men's lacrosse coach Scott Nelson, who is entering his fourth season at the helm of the program, has announced the Bears 2004 schedule. Seven home games at Stevenson Field including national powerhouse Syracuse and Ivy League champions Dartmouth and Princeton highlight this season's schedule.
Brown's first home game will be against the Minutemen from the University of Massachusetts on Saturday, Mar. 20th. The Ivy League portion of the Bear's schedule begins at Yale on Saturday, April 10th and returns home to face-off with Harvard on April 13. Brown's non-league opponents include Loyola, Vermont and Providence College.
In addition, Nelson announced the captains for the 2004 squad. Seniors Richard Tuohey, Charles Towers and Mike Levin will captain the Bears. Levin led the Bears with a .552 save percentage, while making 192 saves between the pipes in 2003 including a 19 save performance against Syracuse.
Tuohey returns after an impressive junior year tallying a point in 11 of the Bear's 14 games. He had 3 multiple goal games en route to an 18-point season. Towers, captain of the Bear's attack, will be looked upon to continue his role as the leader of the offense. Last season, Towers recorded a hat-trick against Ivy League rival Penn.
The Bears closed out the 2003 season with a 4-10 record, facing some of the toughest competition in the nation. The return of several experienced veterans along with some talented newcomers will bode well for the upcoming season.
