DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke University women’s lacrosse team officially kicked off the 2014 season last week, holding its first organized team practices. Blue Devil Network was there to capture some of the sights and sounds as head coach Kerstin Kimel’s squad went through drills and scrimmages at the new practice facility on West Campus.
The Blue Devils will be in pursuit of the program’s 17th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance in 2014 after reaching the national quarterfinals a season ago. Duke returns 22 letterwinners from last year’s 14-6 team, which concluded the spring ranked eighth in the nation.
Duke opens the season at Koskinen Stadium Friday, Feb. 7, hosting in-state opponent Elon at 3 p.m. For ticket information, call the Duke Ticket Office at (919) 681-BLUE.
