Our most sincere congratulations go out to Merrimack College Lacrosse, who, for the second time in a row, brought home the NCAA DII National Championship title! They soundly beat top-ranked Limestone, always a very tough competitor, 16-8. Merrimack will be moving upward to Division I next season, so what a way to close out their DII stretch!
We are incredibly proud to claim Merrimack Head Coach Mike Morgan as one of HGR’s own amazing coaches, and mostly, we continue to be in awe of our founder, leader, and overall great person, Bryan Brazill, Merrimack Offensive Coach.
Special recognition goes out to HGR Alums Adam Carito and Sean Snyder for their invaluable contributions to the game, and to Nick Ponte, who was heroic in the goal, stopping 12 shots!
