PROVO, UT — The Brigham Young University Men’s Lacrosse team finished their final day of tryouts on Saturday under a gorgeous sunrise. If mother nature is any indicator, then BYU has a bright outlook for the season. New players from across the country tried out with returning players in what was a two-part selection process. Head Coach Matt Schneck explained about the format, “The first couple of days we focused only on the newcomers, and then today is the first day that we’ve invited the returning players back.” Schneck said the reason for this was the large number of hopefuls wanting to make the team. With the history of success the team has, the desire to tryout is high among students attending the university.
