With the inaugural seasons of Big Ten men’s and women’s lacrosse set to begin next year, the conference today announced dates and sites for the 2015 and 2016 Big Ten Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse Tournaments.
Northwestern and Maryland, the two winningest programs in the history of NCAA women’s lacrosse, are months away from becoming Big Ten rivals. Before that time, they’ll square off in the NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Tournament semifinals at 7:30 p.m. ET Friday night. This is the fourth time in five years that the two schools have met in the tourney.
Three Big Ten teams have been selected to compete in the 2014 NCAA Division I Women’s Lacrosse Championship. Seven-time NCAA champion Northwestern has earned the No. 5 seed and a first-round bye in tournament following a 12-6 regular season and a runner-up finish in the American Lacrosse Conference. Ohio State and Penn State are the other two Big Ten teams who made the cut.
The Northwestern women’s lacrosse team defeated USC 12-7 on Saturday night in the first women’s lacrosse game at Wrigley Field. Watch our highlight package here and check out some of the best photos from the game in this post.
