Men's Lacrosse Selected to First NCAA Championship
OWINGS MILLS, Md. - The record setting season for the Stevenson University men's lacrosse team continued on Sunday when the No. 4-ranked Mustangs were selected to their first-ever NCAA Division III Men's Lacrosse Championship. The team received a first round bye and will host a second round game on Saturday, May 9.
Stevenson (15-1), who won a school record 15 games this season, will host the winner of Montclair State and Cabrini next weekend at 1:00 p.m.
A win would set up a potential matchup with CAC rival and two-time defending national champion Salisbury in the quarterfinals on Wednesday, May 13.
The Mustangs were one of five selections from Pool "C" which is granted to teams who did not win their conference tournament and receive an automatic bid. Joining Stevenson were Roanoke, Haverford, Tufts and Middlebury.
On Sunday, No. 10 Washington and Lee upset No. 1 Roanoke 15-14 in overtime to win the Old Dominion Athletic Conference championship while second-seeded Gettysburg upended top-seeded Haverford in the Centennial Conference championship.
Those results helped assure Stevenson of first round bye.
No. 14 Cabrini (14-3) won its ninth consecutive CSAC title with a 22-8 victory against Marywood on Saturday and has won 10-straight overall.
Meanwhile, Montclair State (13-4) has won seven-straight after knocking off Kean to win the Skyline Conference championship on Saturday with a 7-6 victory over Kean. The Red Hawks were receiving votes in last week's USILA Division III Coaches' Poll.
More details on Saturday's NCAA second round contest, including ticket prices and game information, will be made available at www.gomustangsports.com later this week.
