The Utah lacrosse team recently wrapped up its fall campaign and head coach Brian Holman
is pleased about the continued direction of the program as we head into the spring.
"The biggest thing coming out of the fall was the growth, and that's what we were looking for," Holman said. "I felt like over the last three weeks we really turned the corner towards being a team. The process was unique, starting with tryouts, which was an agonizing period for everyone. We had some peaks and valleys. The one thing that I think was really good, was that from start to finish, the returning guys and leaders on our team were very true to who we are. It was fun to watch the freshmen come on board. I really feel good about us being a team at this point.
"From a lacrosse perspective, we got better. We went into UMBC, and we had things that we did ok there and things we didn't do well there, and we learned from that. In practice and in film, you can see our team grow. We're evolving as a program and we're going to evolve as a team."
The team begins practice for the spring on Jan. 4. Season tickets are on sale now
for the inaugural season, which opens on Feb. 1 against Vermont.
Basketball and swimming were some of the practice activities the Utes had some fun with as the fall season wound down.
We're counting down to the first game on our website, getting to know each of the players. We'll have a questionnaire posted almost every day until our first game.

Our assistant coaches have been busy. Adam Ghitelman
recently road tripped around the West coast doing free clinics through his Give & Go Foundation in California, Oregon, Idaho and Wyoming.
was honored on the field at a recent Baltimore Ravens game with the U.S. Men's Lacrosse team.
And many of us have been enjoying the powder that Utah is famous for.
