Maryland Men’s Lacrosse Wins National Championship

Terrapins earn first national title since 1975

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. The Maryland men’s lacrosse team won its 12th national title, and first since the 1975 season, following a 9-6 victory over fellow Big Ten member Ohio State in Monday’s NCAA championship game at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

Maryland, which collected its third NCAA Championship, finished the 2017 campaign with a 16-3 record after capturing the outright Big Ten Championship and Big Ten Tournament title. Ohio State completed the season with a school-record 16 wins and advanced to the NCAA Final Four for the first time in program history.

Big Ten schools have now claimed five team national titles during the 2016-17 academic year, including championships for Maryland men’s lacrosse, Maryland women’s lacrosse, Ohio State synchronized swimming and men’s volleyball and Penn State wrestling.

The six programs that comprise Big Ten men’s lacrosse now boast 57 national championships. Johns Hopkins leads all schools with 44 national championships. Maryland has claimed 12 national titles, while Rutgers has also won a national championship.
