“We’ve got a roster of 16 guys who have fully embraced the privilege and opportunity to represent Calvin Lacrosse in this inaugural season.  We’ve been working hard and have been coming together as a team and for that we are very excited, I think we’re laying a great foundation for the future of this program.  This season will really acclimate us to our new NCAA surroundings — we’ve got a mix of some very strong, well established teams and a few games against first year programs similar to us that we are really going to use as tests on where we stand.  We’ll learn very quickly on what we need to improve on and we welcome that challenge.  We’re concerned more with building the culture than we are about wins and losses at this point.” -Head Coach Joel Kamstra
