The Hamline Women’s Lacrosse team set a school record of 18 wins this season, enough to send them to the NCAA D-III tournament.

This is the third year in a row the lacrosse team has played at the NCAA.

The tournament will start with a match against Lynx, of Rhodes College, at Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, Saturday, May 11 at 1 p.m. The Lynx won their conference with a 6-0 mark and swept a pair of games to win the postseason tournament.

Whoever wins the game will play IWU Titans on May 12 at 1 p.m. Hamline has faced defeat against the Titan’s before, including last year when the Pipers lost 18-8 in the NCAA against the Titans.  

This year the Pipers swept their own conference, dominating Midwest Women’s Lacrosse Championships for the third time to qualify for the NCAA tournament on May 4.
