Baseball, softball and lacrosse anticipating strong 2023 seasons

As we start another semester, New Haven’s spring sports will be back in action, looking to build off a strong season last spring for the baseball, softball and women’s lacrosse teams. Baseball and softball will kick off their seasons at the end of February, and lacrosse will start their season on Mar. 1 on the road in a non-conference matchup.

The baseball team will kick off their season in Myrtle Beach, S.C. on Feb. 24 against Wilmington University. Their first six games will be played in South Carolina before traveling to Boca Raton, Fla. for five more games before coming home and playing their home opener on Mar. 17 against Bridgeport.

Finishing with a 24-19 record in 2022 and coming up just short of the playoffs, the Chargers will field together a mix of young and experienced talent to get back to postseason play for the first time since 2021.

The softball team will begin their season in Murfreesboro, N.C. to play in the Chowan Hawks Softball Classic for three games. They will then head down to Leesburg, Fla. where they will play 10 games in seven days before starting conference play on March 25 on the road against American International. Their first home game is on March 28 in a non-conference matchup with Molloy.

The Chargers will look to regain form from their amazing 2021 season in which they finished 28-9 overall and made a trip to both the conference and regional championship.

The lacrosse team will get back into action coming off a 2022 season in which they finished with an 11-7 record, reaching the conference quarterfinal and getting eliminated by number one Stonehill.

They will not have their home opener until Mar. 11 in a Saturday afternoon matchup with Jefferson University. Coming off a successful season with a lot of young talent, the Chargers will look to build a championship-contending team and get back to the NCAA regional for the first time since 2017.

It should be a great spring season for all New Haven teams as we enter the final stretch before they are able to play. More information about each team and program can be found at
