After capturing the school’s first NCAA championship in any sport, Stevenson enters 2014 atop Lacrosse Magazine’s NCAA Division III men’s lacrosse rankings.
The Mustangs return defensive anchors like goalie Dimitri Pecunes and first-team All-American defenseman Kyle Holechek and second-team All-American attackman Chris Dashiell from a team that lost just two games a year ago, each by one goal.
An equally stacked RIT team stands at No. 2 after last year’s NCAA runner-up showing, bringing back most of the roster that helped the Tigers set school records for goals (321) and points (503) last spring.
