Sophomore Liz Peters and freshman Kristin Concordia will compete
for playing time this preseason. Peters started all 14 games as a                   Lindsey Rosecrans
walk-on last season and made 120 saves. Concordia played four years
of lacrosse at Webster Thomas high school and earned First Team,
All-County and team MVP honors as a senior.
“We’re confident in both of our goalies,” said Duffy. “The one who
steps up in practices will be our starter.”

Schedule
Siena has a 16-game slate in front of them that includes eight home
and eight away games.
“I am very excited about our 2009 schedule,” said Duffy. “It is both
challenging and competitive and we are looking forward to starting
the season.”

play at home against 2008 MAAC Champion Marist (3/25). The Saints
travel to Canisius (3/27) before playing two home games against
Niagara (3/29) and Fairfield (4/5).
The Saints conclude their non-conference schedule at cross-town rival
UAlbany (4/7) and host St. Bonaventure (4/10) and Boston College (4/14).

One of the main objectives of the Siena Athletic Department has always
been to remain actively involved in the Capital Region community.
Siena’s student-athletes and coaches made a record number of appear-
ances in the community during the 2007-2008 season, volunteering
hundreds of hours to help out many organizations. Additionally, the
athletic department has donated thousands of dollars in game tickets,
sports camps scholarships and sporting apparel and memorabilia to
local charities.
From soup kitchens to elementary schools, Siena invests its special
resources each year to enrich the Capital Region community.

Partnership with Ronald

In 2008-2009, Siena athletics will continue its active
partnership with the Ronald McDonald House
Charities in the Capital Region. Throughout the

in visiting either the Ronald McDonald House in
