CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The No. 8 Virginia women’s lacrosse team (2-2, 0-1 ACC) hosts Harvard (1-0, 0-0 Ivy) on Tuesday, March 3 at 4 p.m. at Klöckner Stadium.

Harvard and Virginia have met five times, with the Cavaliers owning a 5-0 advantage in the all-time series. After falling just short, 19-18, in Cambridge, Mass., in 2011, the Crimson dropped the last meeting, 12-6, in Charlottesville in 2012.

The Crimson won their season-opener, 10-6, over Hofstra. Marisa Romeo led Harvard with four goals, while goalie Kelly Weis recorded 11 saves in net.

Since 2007, Virginia has only lost four times to unranked opponents, going 51-4 in that span against teams not ranked in the IWLCA Top-20.

After playing its first four games on the road, Tuesday’s game will be the first time Virginia will play in Charlottesville this season.

The Cavaliers are coming off a 16-15 victory at Penn State last Saturday (Feb. 28). Senior Courtney Swan (Vero Beach, Fla.) matched her career high with eight points in the game, scoring four goals (on four shots) with four assists. Swan also won nine draw controls, giving her 205 in her career, just the second player in program history to win more than 200 draws.

Redshirt senior Liza Blue (Butler, Md.) had her third-straight hat trick at Penn State. Blue’s three goals also helped her reach a milestone as she now has 101 goals in her career.

Sophomore Kelly Reese (Severna Park, Md.) also scored a hat trick at Penn State. After playing in just six games last season, Reese has appeared in all four this year, scoring two goals against Northwestern and her career-high three at Penn State.

Freshman goalie Rachel Vander Kolk (Severna Park, Md.) logged a season-best 13 saves against the Nittany Lions, with 10 of those coming in the second half. Vander Kolk leads the ACC in saves per game, averaging 7.50.

Virginia wraps up a stretch of playing five of its first six games on the road and faces four top-10 teams in the first six games, all on the road, with a Saturday, March 7 game at No. 2 North Carolina (5-1, 0-0 ACC) at 2:30 p.m. before returning home to host No. 14 Loyola on Wednesday, March 11 at 7 p.m.

Single-game reserved seats are available for all women’s home games for $7. Single-game general admission adult tickets for women’s home games are $5, while youth (18 and under), seniors (60 and over), and UVa faculty and staff tickets are $4 each.
