For the first time in five seasons, the NCAA Division III championship in women's lacrosse will not involve a team from the Centennial Conference as both Gettysburg College and Franklin & Marshall College fell in the national semifinals hosted at Clark Field on Saturday, May 22.
Gettysburg (18-4) was upended on its own turf as Salisbury University (20-1) punched its way into the title game with a 20-12 victory over the Bullets. Gettysburg has been to the national semifinals four times in the last five seasons. Since beginning play on Clark Field in 2005, Gettysburg has put up an impressive record of 49-8 at home, including a 5-2 record in the NCAA Tournament.
Founded in 1832, Gettysburg College is a highly selective four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences with a strong academic tradition. Alumni include Rhodes Scholars, a Nobel laureate, and other distinguished scholars. The college enrolls 2,600 undergraduate students and is located on a 200-acre campus adjacent to the Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania.
