“Our program embraces opportunities to challenge ourselves against the nation’s best and our 2017 schedule exemplifies that philosophy,” Tiffany said. “Our men, captains and staff know we have a significant amount of individual and team preparation before we are in a position to be successful against this year’s lineup. We understand there is no substitute for exertion and toil during the preseason.”

The 2017 season will be the Cavaliers first under Tiffany, the 17th head coach in UVA men’s lacrosse history. He inherits two All-Americans from 2016, Zed Williams (Irving, N.Y.) and Michael Howard (Richmond, Va.)Â. Williams led UVA’s midfield with 22 goals and finished with 27 points.
