SU Athletics has a busy slate of games, including three Atlantic Coast Conference Tournaments, during the graduation weekend. Even if most of the events don’t take place on the SU campus, enjoying Syracuse sports with the family is always fun, especially during the celebration.

Here are six memorable events to watch over the graduation weekend:

Rowing Woman: ACC Championship (May 13-14)

The women’s rowing ACC Championship will take place Friday and Saturday at Lake Hartwell in Clemson, South Carolina. Syracuse is No. 1 seed in varsity eight, second varsity eight and second varsity four. Duke was the top seed in the varsity four and Virginia was the top in the third varsity eight.

Syracuse picked up the first -ever top seed in the ACC tournament event. Orange is also No. 3 in varsity four and No. 5 in third varsity eight. The No. 11 SU is the top-seeded ACC team, according to the Pocock/Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association Poll. Both events have an 8:05 am start time.

Female Lacrosse: NCAA Tournament Round One (May 13)

SU got No. 5 seed in the NCAA Tournament after Virginia’s disappointing first-round loss in the ACC Tournament. The Orange take on Fairfield at 4 p.m. in Princeton, New Jersey Friday.

Syracuse will seek to make a statement in the first round against Fairfield to get its confidence high for the next round, where they could face the winner at Princeton against UMass on May 15 at noon. If SU wins two games this week, there will be two more rounds of play before the national championship on May 29 in Baltimore, Maryland.
