Men's lacrosse: Westminster gains No. 2 seed in national tournament
For only the second time in school history, the Westminster College men's lacrosse team is a No. 2 seed when it competes in the MCLA National Championships, beginning May 13 in Greenville, S.C.
The tournament runs through May 18. Westminster (14-5) takes on Briarcliffe (9-4) with the winner advancing to a quarterfinal game between the winner of Palm Beach Atlantic (Fla.) and Indiana Tech.
Briarcliffe is the tournament's No. 15 seed and is making a fourth straight trip to the national tournament.
