Women's Lacrosse Claims Patriot League Tournament Berth
History was made on Wednesday night when the Army West Point Women's Lacrosse Team clinched a spot in the Patriot League for the first time in program history.
"It's very exciting to think about playing in the postseason with this team for the first time in program history," Noto Family Head Women's Lacrosse Coach Kristen Skiera said. "We set out as a team in August with this goal in mind, so I am so proud of our 42 players for making that goal a reality. We look forward to finishing the regular season strong in our remaining games and are excited for the opportunity to compete for a Patriot League Tournament championship."
The Black Knights took care of business after claiming a 12-9 road victory over Colgate, setting a new single-season mark for wins with 11. It was also the fourth Patriot League win of the season, which tied a program-best mark that was set a season ago. Army will be fighting for seeding in the Patriot League Tournament with two more games left to play in the regular season. The Cadets will trek to Massachusetts this Saturday for a 12 p.m. meeting with Boston U., before heading back home to square off against Bucknell next Thursday at 6 p.m.
