MAAC Goes 0 For 8 Opening Weekend

Iona and Canisius opened their 2010 seasons against some tough opponents and came out of their first tournaments with no wins.

Both teams had to have their schedules adjusted due to inclement weather in Florida. Both teams had their friday games wiped out, and both lost a game.

Iona was in Tallahassee for the Sunshine State Tournament hosted by Florida State, a top 20 team. The Gaels lost to them 9-1. They also lost to Bowling Green and Mercer.

Canisius was in Clearwater for the DeMarini Tournament hosted by South Florida, and lost to powerful Georgia Tech 9-0. They also lost to host South Florida, Florida Gulf Coast, and Illinois State. They also lost a neutral site game to Long Island on the monday following the tournament.

This coming weekend, the Golden Griffins visit the state of Virginia for a pair of doubleheaders against Norfolk State and Hampton. Rider will open their 2010 season at the Elon Invitational on saturday.
