STATE COLLEGE, Pa., March 10, 2003 - The men's lacrosse team will travel to Boca Raton, Fl. to take on Yale in a non-conference match-up. This is the second all-time meeting between the two teams. The first came in 1997 where the Lions were victorious winning 11-6.

The Lions dropped their season opener to Notre Dame in a close match 10-9. Penn State then rebounded from the loss to dominate Fairfield 18-6 one week later.
Head coach Glenn Thiel will be looking for his 262nd victory to move him up to a fifth place tie on the Division I All-Time Coaches Career Wins list. Carl Runk of Towson currently holds the fifth spot on the list.
