Seton Hill lacrosse teams headed to NCAA tournaments

Bill Beckner

Seton Hill will be well-represented at the NCAA Division II lacrosse championships.

The Griffins men’s and women’s teams have earned spots in this week’s national tournaments.

Seton Hill (12-4) is the No. 5 seed in the men’s North Region and will open at No. 4 Mercy (17-1) at 3 p.m. Wednesday. The Griffins are in the NCAA playoffs for the second time in three seasons.

Mercy, located in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., defeated LIU Post Saturday to win its first East Coast Conference title. Seton Hill is the Great Midwest Athletic Conference runner-up.

Mercyhurst is the No. 3 seed and will host defending champion and No. 6 Merrimack in the first round.

Seton Hill’s women found the national bracket for the first time and are seeded No 4 in the Atlantic Region. The Griffins (11-8) will travel to play No. 1 West Chester (17-2) at 11 a.m. Friday.

West Chester is riding an 11-game winning streak, including a 16-15 overtime win over Seton Hill in the PSAC semifinals.

No. 2 East Stroudsburg meets No. 3 Mercyhurst in another first-round match at West Chester.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
