Spiders' men's, women's lacrosse teams head to NCAA Tournament

Penn State is looking to win its first Big Ten Tournament since 2015.

The victor of the Maryland's first round game will meet either No. 8 seed Syracuse or Cornell in the quarterfinals the following weekend in Annapolis, Md. Friday's winners will square off at noon on Sunday.

The Wagner women's lacrosse team, champions of the Northeast Conference (NEC) for the second time in the last three years, will host the Southern Conference champion Mercer University Bears at Hameline Field on Wednesday, May 9 with opening draw set for 1:00 p.m. "We are ready to play. Our players are grateful for this opportunity and excited to play at home in front of their families and fans". Seven of JHU's opponents from the 2018 season are among the field of 26.

Virginia finished the season ranked No. 10 in the Inside Lacrosse poll and No. 11 in the USILA poll.

Both teams are making their second NCAA Tournament appearances in program history.

The Atlantic Coast Conference does not have an automatic bid, but Duke, Syracuse and Notre Dame are among the top eight seeds, and Virginia received an at-large bid. That's the only game we have right now.

-O'Donnell, Carter, Auth and Daggett were named members of the 2018 All-Big Ten Tournament team. Maryland earned the outright Big Ten Championship and Big Ten Tournament title, and enters the NCAA Tournament with an 18-1 overall record and a flawless 7-0 Big Ten slate.

Four other teams from Maryland also made the 27-team Division I field - No. 7 seed Towson, No. 8 Loyola Maryland, Navy and Johns Hopkins - when the bracket was announced Sunday night. The 12 wins are the most by the Cavaliers entering the NCAA Tournament since the 2010 squad had 14.

"You'll have to ask the NCAA about that". We have to prepare them and get ready to go. "A lot of times there are several surprises with the NCAA Tournament". "We don't have to travel very far and we know that stadium very well, which is a plus", she said. "I think there will definitely be some comfort level with playing in the same stadium one week apart".
