Texas State 2015 Lacrosse Schedule and Team Captains

SAN MARCOS, TX Texas State University Sport Clubs and head men's lacrosse coach Kyle Saunders are pleased to unveil the schedule and team captains for the 2015 season.

"I'm extremely excited for my first season at the helm in 2015" said Saunders. "We've put together a challenging but appropriate group of opponents that will hopefully prepare us to make another run at the Lone Star Alliance championship." The Bobcats face four teams who made it to the MCLA national tournament. Those same four teams finished ranked in the final poll of the season while State finished 17th nationally.

The Bobcats 13-game slate (full schedule at bottom of this post) includes eight contests away from San Marcos and five on the West Campus. All five home contests will be played in a row starting with the Sooners of Oklahoma during the second annual I-35 Shootout on Saturday February 28th. State starts the season campaign with a trip to the metroplex against LSA North foes SMU and the Horned Frogs of TCU on Saturday February 7th and 8th respectively.

While the Bobcats will be again hosting several high school teams for their aforementioned I-35 Showdown, they also will be in the showcase game for the Texas A&M Aggieland Classic as they take on the Fightin' Aggies Saturday February 14th at 7:00 pm in front of several high school teams.

In an effort to grow the sport of lacrosse in Texas and with the help of one of their original coaches, Kyle Northrup, the Bobcats head to the campus of West Texas A&M for an unprecedented weekend of games for the region and the program. The previous two MCLA national champions, Colorado and Colorado State along with 2013 opponent UConn will descend on Canyon Texas along with Texas State. State will face the Buffaloes of Colorado University at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday February 21st and the Rams of Colorado State at 1:30 pm on Sunday February 22nd.

The maroon and gold host the other two of their four out of conference competitions. On Monday March 9th last year's SELC champion and MCLA quarterfinalist Virginia Tech will take on the Bobcats at 8:00 pm while last year's GRLC finalist Illinois will also head to the Lone Star state for a 7:00 pm contest on Wednesday March 25th.

Louisiana's two LSA teams, LSU and UL Lafayette, travel to San Marcos for conference match-ups with Texas State on Saturday March 28th and Sunday March 29th both 1:00 pm faceoffs. The following weekend the Bobcats travel to Southlake Texas to take on the Red Raiders of Texas Tech, a team they haven't faced since 2012.

In what has been coined "The Best Lacrosse Game in Texas" the Bobcats travel north on I-35 for a mid-week match-up with rival and the reigning LSA champion Longhorns of UT Austin. The teams split their contests in 2014 and the rivalry is rekindled Wednesday April 8th at 8:00 pm at the Caven Lacrosse Complex.

The final game of the season sees the Bobcats in a catfight with the Cougars of Houston on Saturday April 11th at 2:00 pm in The Space City

"2015 affords our program the opportunity to play tough opponents on the road all over the state of Texas," added Saunders. "With road games in Houston, Dallas, Austin, College Station and our first time in West Texas, we should be ready to compete at away venues come tournament time."

The LSA tournament will be expanded this year to include the top four teams from each side of the conference up from just three in the past. The quarterfinals will be held at the higher seed the weekend of April 18th and 19th while the final four will head to the Metroplex the following weekend of April 25th and 26th. The exact venue has yet to be determined by the conference.

To get back to not just the LSA Tournament but to the MCLA tournament for the second time in team history, the Bobcats will once again rely on the leadership of four strong captains in seniors Blake Mattinson (Austin, TX), Liam Kelly (Victoria, BC) and Jeremy DiGiovanni (Austin, TX), as well as junior Bucky Desadier (Conroe, TX.).

"Once again, I could not be more pleased with the four selected by their peers to represent Texas State men's lacrosse as team captains," Saunders said. "All four will complement each other, as well as lead in their own individual way."

A 2014 MCLA All-American honorable mention, first team conference attackman and the LSA offensive player of the year, Kelly is one of the best active goal scorers not just in the LSA, but nationwide in the MCLA. With his final season of eligibility still at hand, the second year graduate student finished his first season in San Marcos as fourth in the nation in goals (59) and goals per game (3.688). Most importantly, Kelly was a 2014 MCLA Scholar Athlete.

A two-year All-LSA selection and starter on defense for the Maroon and Gold, Mattinson enters his senior year as the stronghold of the Bobcat backline. Mattinson finished sixth on the team with 28 ground balls for returning players. Known for his physical style of play, the Austin native also possesses one of the best sticks on the team adding an offensive threat to the Bobcat clearing game. The senior added a timely goal against the Longhorns during the regular season.

One of the most well-respected Bobcats on the roster by coaches and teammates alike, DiGiovanni joins the ranks of captain for the 2015 season, an honor held by current student assistant and older brother Jason DiGiovanni in 2014. An ironman at the midfield, the Westlake alum has appeared in 49 games over the last three years and will lead the team both on the field and in the classroom.

Just a transfer-junior, Desadier completes Texas State's quartet of captains for 2015. An honorable mention All-American between the midfield stripes last season, the junior midfielder was named LSA first team All-Conference, accomplishing stellar numbers through the regular season before flooring opponents throughout postseason play to lead the Bobcats to the LSA Finals. The Mr. Bobcat runner-up finished third on the team in goals (27) and assists (17) to finish with a balanced 44 points on the campaign.
