D3 Lax: Teams To Watch In New England Women’s Lacrosse This Spring

NEd3WLAX TEAMS

By NoontimeSports.com (@NoontimeSports) 

With a brand new season of New England D3 lacrosse underway – yes, a few non-New England schools have already competed at least once this season – it is time to dish out our women’s lacrosse teams to watch in each conference.


Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC): Endicott College will certainly be the favorite once again, but don’t sleep on Roger Williams or University of New England – both teams will certainly provide challenges to the Gulls, as well as the entire conference.


Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC): Can Johnson & Wales University continue its impressive run from a year ago? Sure, they may have graduated some key pieces to a historic season, but don’t overlook these Wildcats.

Additionally, keep an eye on Lasell College – the Lasers will certainly be a team that could challenge the Wildcats come late April/early May.


Little East Conference (LEC): Plymouth State secured six of seven first-place votes in this year’s preseason coaches poll, so once again, keep an eye on the Panthers. Additionally, keep an eye on both Eastern Connecticut State University and Keene State – two teams that will certainly challenge the Panthers for the top spot in the conference tournament.


Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC): Westfield State will again be the team to beat this spring, but what about Bridgewater State and Framingham State? Both teams could be in for an exciting spring and will provide challenges for the Owls, both in conference play and the tournament.


North Atlantic Conference (NAC): Can Castleton University make it back-to-back conference champions? Or maybe, we will see the Pilgrims of New England College earn a trip to the big dance? Both teams are scheduled to meet in late April – expect this contest to decide the top seed in the NAC Tournament.


New England Collegiate Conference (NECC): Elms College is certainly the favorite, but maybe this is the year Southern Vermont breaks through? Southern Vermont collected a pair of first-place votes on the preseason coaches poll and will certainly be a team to watch this spring.


New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC): Colby College will have a target on its back after winning the NESCAC crown last year, but don’t overlook Hamilton CollegeMiddlebury CollegeTrinity College and Tufts University. Additionally, let’s not forget about Amherst College, too – they will provide challenges for all five squads listed above.


New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC): Babson College will be the favorite, but keep an eye on MIT and Springfield College – both teams will be in for exciting springs. Additionally, one shouldn’t sleep on Wheaton College or Wellesley College – both teams tied for fourth on the preseason coaches’ poll.

Junior Marlon Bennett (Startford, Conn.) was also named to the Third Team.

The Panthers posted a 13-13 record during the regular season and went 7-7 in The Little East. They are led by freshman Curtis Arsenault (Berlin, N.H.), who averages 12.4 ppg and 4.8 rpg, and senior Petey Skevas (Wethersfield, Conn.), who enters Wednesday’s tilt with 998 career points.
