HANOVER, N.H. - The further into February we get, the closer it comes to lacrosse season. As the 2013 campaign rapidly approaches, head coach Amy Patton took time to sit down in her continued preseason interview series with DartmouthSports.com.

This week, Patton breaks down the attack and midfield that will suit up this spring for the Big Green. Newcomers, top returners and overcoming key losses from a season ago are all addressed by the head coach in her 21st season at the helm of the Dartmouth women's lacrosse program.

With just over a week left until the team migrates west to take on Oregon on Feb. 23, Patton and her new coaching staff of Morgan Kelly and Whit Hagerman are ready for the 2013 season to get underway.

Check back next week for the final preseason interview as we talk about goalkeepers, defense and the first-ever trip to Eugene to take on the Ducks.
