MCLA D2 National Championships Bracket

After finishing with a 12-1 record and winning the rugged Upper Midwest Lacrosse Conference (UMLC) title, St. Thomas has been tabbed as the No. 1 seed in the 2018 MCLA D2 National Championships powered by Under Armour.

The Tommies are one of six teams from the UMLC to earn an invitation to nationals. No. 2 seed North Dakota State, No. 3 Minn.-Duluth, No. 4 St. John’s, No. 5 Grand Valley State and No. 10 Dayton were also selected.

The Southwestern Lacrosse Conference (SLC), the Western Collegiate Lacrosse League (WCLL) and the SouthEastern Lacrosse Conference (SELC) each received a pair of bids.

The SLC had No. 11 Cal State Fullerton and No. 12 Cal State San Marcos selected while the WCLL had No. 8 Sierra Nevada and No. 13 UC Davis. The SELC had No. 6 Kennesaw State and No. 9 Florida Gulf Coast chosen.

I really feel like we have the 16 best teams in the country heading to Salt Lake City. The committee has done a very thorough job vetting all of these teams and I thank them for their time.

– Gary Podesta, MCLA Director of Competition
