Stanford, Calif. - Stanford women's lacrosse (1-0, 1-0 MPLL) will host the University of New Hampshire Wildcats in the Cardinal's season opener this Saturday, Feb. 22nd at 1 p.m. on Maloney Field. This will be the first game for the Wildcats in 2003, while the Cardinal started its new year last weekend with a 12-8 win over UC Davis on the Aggies home field.
New Hampshire is currently ranked second in the America East preseason coaches' poll. The Wildcats went undefeated in the conference regular season in 2002 but are ranked behind Boston University, who won the America East Tournament last year.
Stanford captured its first win last Saturday over the Aggies. Against UC Davis, sophomore Nina Pantano notched three goals to lead the Cardinal to its first win of the season. Stanford posted a 10-0 record in the conference last season en route to the inaugural Mountain Pacific Lacrosse League title.
