Many people claim that MCLA lacrosse teams are weaker or can’t compete at the NCAA level. I beg to differ. To participate in the NCAA, a team must be able to compensate for their travel (airfare, hotels, meals, transportation, missed classes, communications with professors, etc.). With that said, Colorado has become the lacrosse-mecca of western USA and the Colorado. Buffaloes are ready to show the NCAA what it’s missing. Colorado…

November 3, 2014

This was my (Ian Neadle) first time seeing MCLA lacrosse in person. I always considered a downgrade from the NCAA level. I was wrong. The players are smaller and the intensity is lower. However, the referees are not qualified (in my opinion) to call a game with higher intensity such as NCAA (some officials were quite terrible). The heart and will are there, and the players make the most of…
