The Terriers are excited to play on new turf fields this spring. The fields were built on campus and will be the home for the men’s and women’s lacrosse teams.

The favorite in the NAC this spring is New England College. According to Coach Cohen, “New England College is well-balanced and the most fundamentally sound.”
