The first men’s 2018 NCAA lax game took place on Thursday, February 1, with Vermont hosting Furman. Vermont came out on top of the division I bought, 12-6.
Saturday features ten more NCAA DI matchups, including Duke-Air Force, Ohio St-Cleveland State, Providence-Boston, and more, plus four DII and two DIII games. There are even a couple of games scheduled for this Sunday before America’s big game.
Suppose it’s safe to say it’s officially 2018 NCAA Lax Season now!
