"We are very excited to be opening our season against a strong opponent like Jacksonville," VU Head Coach Cathy Swezey said. "Our team has worked so hard this year, and I am anxious for them to see their hard work pay off. It should be a good game, and a lot of our young players will gain valuable experience."
The Commodores closed out their 2012 regular season against the Dolphins with a meeting in Nashville that Vanderbilt won by a 14-9 tally. Commodore attacker Carly Linthicum scored a hat-trick in the game, while defender Alyssa Dunlap came up with five ground balls.
While Sunday's game is the first of the season for Vanderbilt, Jacksonville already has one game under its belt. The Dophins fell to Syracuse, 21-8, last month.
Vanderbilt opens its home schedule next Sunday when Kennesaw State visits the VU Lacrosse Complex.
