SLC Sends Five Teams to MCLA Nationals

The Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association has approximately 200 Division 1 and Division 2 teams.  Each year sixteen teams from each division make it to the MCLA Division I National Championships powered by Under Armour.  Once again, the most competitive conference in the MCLA, the Southwest Lacrosse Conference, will have an oversized representation.

The SLC is sending five teams, including three from Orange County, to the Nationals.  No. 2 Grand Canyon University, No. 7 Arizona State, and No. 9 Chapman will rep the SLC in the Division 1 bracket.  No. 2 Concordia, and No. 10 Fullerton will compete for a Division 2 National championship.

Chapman won the National Championship in 2016.  Grand Canyon won in 2015, so the SLC is trying to make it three rings in a row in Division 1.  Concordia hopes to make up for a stinging one-goal loss in the 2015 championship game.

The tournament will begin on Monday, May 8 with eight first round games at UC Irvine and conclude on Saturday, May 13 on the campus of Chapman University. GET TICKETS NOW!
