The 14th-ranked Griffins will host fifth-ranked Brigham Young on Wednesday and undefeated No. 1 Colorado State on Friday in two key Rocky Mountain Women’s Lacrosse League showdowns. Westminster has never beaten cross-state rival BYU.
“We have to come out with some confidence,” Farrell said. “In the past we’ve been fearful playing teams like BYU because we’ve seen them do so well.”
Farrell was the 2012 Lacrosse Magazine WCLA Division II Preseason Player of the year. The senior attacker has continued to put up impressive numbers in WCLA Division I play this year. In stats calculated through the Griffins’ first seven games, Farrell led the team with 42 points (27 goals, 15 assists).
Westminster posted an impressive win March 17 against No. 16 Colorado. Its only loss at the club level this season was on Feb. 15 to No. 10 Minnesota in Santa Barbara, Calif. The Griffins narrowly lost to NCAA Division II Colorado Mesa on March 2.

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.
