Edison, N.J. - The 2013 MAAC Women's Lacrosse Championship has been moved back one week to May 3-5 at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. The semifinals will now be played on Friday, May 3 and the Championship Final on Sunday, May 5.
The date change was passed unanimously by the MAAC Committee on Athletic Administration during a conference call on Sept. 26. The request for the date change was made due to the MAAC now receiving an automatic bid to the NCAA Championship and no longer needing the earlier date for a play-in game.
The women's lacrosse sport committee recommended moving the championship to the first weekend in May to be consistent with the league's standard timing of championships in sports with NCAA automatic bids.
