are underdog teams coming seemingly from out of nowhere to knock off the powerhouse programs and continue to advance. With
the Davids looking to elevate their game to compete with the big boys and the Goliaths hoping to meet their lofty aspirations,

NCAA Lacrosse History
From 1936 through 1970 the
Division I NCAA lacrosse national champion was awarded the title based on their regular season record. As more and more schools
began competing in the sport, however, it became obvious that this was no longer a fair way to determine the champion, so,
in 1971, the inaugural championship tournament was held, consisting of eight total teams. The field expanded three times to
its current size of 16 teams vying for the title. Lacrosse is now played at the collegiate level at universities all over
the country and at various levels of competition including Division I, Division II, Division III, and at the club level.
more than 40 teams have competed in the NCAA lacrosse championship, but only nine of them have ever won the national championship:
Syracuse, Maryland, Johns Hopkins, Duke, North Carolina, Princeton, Cornell, and Loyola. Syracuse leads the way with the most
national championships with nine titles, though there are always other powerhouse programs looking to etch their name in the
annals of NCAA lacrosse history. With some serious talent looking to take their game to new heights and bring home the hardware,
it doesn't get any better than this.
NCAA Lacrosse Trivia
