BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Tickets for Lehigh’s final four home games against UMass, Colgate, Navy and Lafayette, along with the Independence Classic vs. Penn State, are now on sale. Admission to Lehigh’s first three home games (against Saint Joseph’s, VMI and Penn) is free for all. The Mountain Hawks, ranked #10 in the preseason Media Poll and 11 in the Coaches Poll, are coming off their first-ever Patriot League Tournament Title and NCAA Tournament Appearance in 2012.
The final four home games are part of the Summit Series, presented by Johnny’s Bagels, with tickets only five dollars and free for Lehigh students and staff with their Lehigh ID. Tickets for the Whitman’s Sampler Independence Classic at PPL Park on Mar. 9 are 25 dollars and include admission to all three games of a college lacrosse tripleheader. St. John's takes on Syracuse at 12 p.m. followed by Penn against Villanova at 2:30 p.m. and Lehigh vs. Penn State at 5 p.m.
Lehigh drew standing room only crowds for the final two games of the 2012 season, so fans are advised to purchase GA tickets early for access to seats for the games at Ulrich Sports Complex.
All home games will be played at the Ulrich Sports Complex, except Colgate, which is set for Apr. 6 in Goodman Stadium. That game will be broadcast live on CBS Sports Network, Lehigh’s second nationally-televised home game of the season. The Mar. 20 game vs. UMass will air live on ESPNU as ESPN’s national game of the week.
Parking is free for all home games and balls will not be allowed in the complex by fans.
The Mountain Hawks open the 2013 season on Saturday, Feb. 9 against Saint Joseph’s, who’s led by former Lehigh assistant Taylor Wray. Opening faceoff is set for 1 p.m. at the Ulrich Sports Complex.
