Saturday’s Lacrosse Doubleheader to Air Live on ESPN3, SNY

 

The Fairfield University Department of Athletics has announced that the men’s and women’s lacrosse doubleheader at Rafferty Stadium on Saturday, March 21 will be broadcast live on ESPN3 and SportsNet New York (SNY). The games will be produced by the Fairfield University Media Center.

 

“I am pleased that our men’s and women’s lacrosse programs will be added to the ESPN3 and SNY lineup, providing the opportunity for our fans and alumni outside Fairfield County to not only watch our teams in action but also see Rafferty Stadium for the first time,” Director of Athletics Gene Doris said. “With the success of our basketball broadcasts, I know that our partnership with ESPN3 and SNY will continue to be beneficial by bringing our lacrosse programs to a regional and national audience.”

 

The Fairfield women’s lacrosse team begins its Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) schedule on Saturday at 2 p.m. against Manhattan College. In the nightcap of the twin bill, Fairfield men’s lacrosse hosts nationally-ranked Villanova at 5:30 p.m.

 

The production of Saturday’s doubleheader will be under the guidance of Casey Timmeny, Director of the Media Center. Under his direction, students, alumni and Media Center staff will bring the live productions to millions of homes through ESPN3 and SNY. The Fairfield University Media Center has produced live Fairfield University athletics events since 2006 for distribution to local, regional and national outlets.

 

All of Fairfield University’s ESPN3 broadcasts are available worldwide to those with participating cable and satellite providers.
