Regular Season 2017-2018
2017-2018 x Regular Season

PITT EARNS NO. 1 PRE-SEASON RANKING FROM INSIDE LACROSSE

   Last year’s national championship runner-up Pittsburgh is ranked No. 1 in the Nike/US Lacrosse WCLA Division I Preseason Top 20, while two-time defending champion Denver holds the top spot in the Nike/US Lacrosse WCLA Division II Preseason Top 20. Pittsburgh finished with a 17-2 record last year and held the No. 1 one ranking in Division I for much of the regular season. As the top seed in the 2017 WCLA National Championship, the Panthers advanced to the title game before falling 13-11 to Delaware, a loss that snapped Pittsburgh’s 11-game winning streak. Returning All-Americans Courtney Bruch and Mara Wrzeniewski will be among the leaders for the Panthers in 2018.  Colorado State, Georgia, UCLA, and Santa Clara round out the top five in the Division I preseason rankings. 

DENVER TOPS D2 WCLA PRE-SEASON LIST

Coming off its second straight Division II championship in 2017, Denver begins the new season atop the Division II rankings. The Pioneers defeated Loyola 9-6 in last year’s final and closed the year with a 13-game winning streak. Three returning All-Americans – Kaitlyn Ball, Sophie Smith, and Sophie Vernon – will help lead the way for Denver, which finished 14-2 overall last year. Loyola, Concordia (Calif.), SMU and St. Thomas round out the top five in the Division II preseason rankings. The complete lists for both divisions can be found below.

WCLL READIES FOR 2018 SPRING SEASON

    Welcome to the Women's Collegiate Lacrosse League (WCLL), an intercollegiate club lacrosse organization, divided into two divisions, that represents 44 universities and colleges that stretch a geographic region from as far east as New York and west to Missouri and from the Canadian border to Kentucky. The WCLL, the largest club league in the continental United States, is beginning our 24nd year of competition and we look forward to serving the many student-athletes in our conference. In the WCLL's long tenure, we have experienced the growth of womens' club lacrosse, whether watching a university club program transform into an NCAA scholarship opportunity or just witnessing a smaller club team enjoy the fruits of friendship, while competing in a shared experience. The WCLL's historical landscape is scattered with a number of successes and we're hopeful the trend will continue in 2017. We believe in our mission and fully support US Lacrosse and all that they represent. Our basic mission is simple:
