Still looking for a post from JHU about the 4/7 tournament. If we don't play the PA championship (and we probably won't because it's the same weekend as NHBB) we will be able to play #174 somewhere. That could be at JHU, depending on the logistics and the field. So... anything from JHU?

This is not a good date because it's during FCPS spring break and many of our team members have college visits. Is there any chance the date could be changed?

Indeed, it is at the start or end of all (or almost all) Virginia high school spring breaks because it is the Saturday before Easter. While that generally depresses attendance a bit, it has also worked fine in the past.
