The Bulldogs have a big week ahead of them, as they are about to play the “biggest game of the season,” as Coach Holin Axley said. He explained that the team will keep up their momentum by “having a good week of practice” and making sure that the guys take care of themselves by hydrating and icing up. Next Saturday, the UGA men’s lacrosse team will play against Georgia Tech at the Georgia Tech Roe Stamps Field, facing off at 2:00pm.
