MCLA Lacrosse: Westminster Men’s Lacrosse Moves Up To Division I For 2014 Season

The Westminster College men’s lacrosse team will move to Division 1 of the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA) for the 2014 season, head coach Mason Goodhand announced today. Westminster is currently a Division 2 member and will compete for a second national championship at that level this spring.

Westminster has been a D2 member since the program started in 2007. The Griffins won the D2 National Championship in 2008 and have qualified for the national tournament every year. They will remain a member of the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse Conference and join current D1 members: Brigham Young, Colorado State, Colorado, Utah, Utah State and New Mexico.

“Division 1 of the Rocky Mountain Conference is one of the toughest in the MCLA,” Goodhand stated. “Our staff is very excited for this opportunity and we’re traveling to get an early dose this year when we slip into Boulder and Ft Collins early this season.”

Since men’s lacrosse was started at Westminster in 2007, the Griffins have gone 89-34 overall while compiling a 22-2 mark in league games. They have won the conference championship four times in the six years while making the championship game every year.
