Past NEPSAC Athletes Continue to Shine in 2018 NCAA Men's and Women's Lacrosse Tournaments
By BOB YORK
The NCAA hung out its “Welcome to New England” banner at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., over the Memorial Day weekend to promote its 2018 Men’s Lacrosse Tournament and then looked on as its host teams smacked the rest of the country in the face during the competition.
For the first time in the 47-year history of the men’s tourney, all three divisional champions hailed from New England. Yale led the trifecta by defeating Duke, 13-11, to earn the Div. I title, while Merrimack prevailed on the Div. II level by crushing Saint Leo, 23-6. Wesleyan then completed the sweep by outlasting Salisbury, 8-6, for the Div. III crown.
