Men’s and Women’s LAX Seeded in NCAA Tournament

The NCAA may have recently banned hashtags on the field, but that doesn’t mean Penn State has lost its “#OneTeam spirit” as both the men’s and women’s lacrosse team qualified for the NCAA Tournament on Sunday.

This is the men’s team (12-4) first trip to the NCAA Tournament since 2005, and their first opponent will be the Yale Bulldogs (11-4) on May 11th at 2:30 p.m. at Penn State Lacrosse Field. If the eighth-seeded Penn State team wins, they will face the winner of the Syracuse/Bryant game on May 18th or 19th in College Park, Maryland. It’s important to note that Penn State’s top scoring midfielder is Tom LaCrosse; with a name like that, you’d have to think winning the NCAA Tournament is his destiny.

Meanwhile, this is the women’s team (12-6) second straight NCAA Tournament appearance. They are the tournament’s 7th seed, and will host  Canisius (14-4) in the first round on May 10th. If they win, they will face the winner of the Massachusetts/Connecticut game on May 12th. For a little extra fun, here’s a video of the team reacting to their seeding announcement.

A link to the men’s bracket can be found here, and link to the women’s bracket can be found here.

Best of luck to both teams this weekend!
