ACC Lacrosse Championships Underway

Charlotte, N.C. - ACC lacrosse has been dominating the nation in 2015. ACC men’s lacrosse has five teams ranked in the top 10, including the top four positions. ACC women’s lacrosse also holds five of the top 10 spots in the nation. As our Jeff Fischel alludes to in the video below, the five ACC men's lacrosse teams are 37-3 against nonconference opponents this year. There's absolutely no question that the ACC is the best lacrosse conference in the country. 

Both of the 2015 ACC Women’s and Men’s Lacrosse Championships get underway this weekend. The championships will be extremely fun to watch as the ACC produces a slew of lacrosse talent across the board. 

The 2015 ACC Women’s Lacrosse Championship got underway this morning at Virginia’s Klockner Stadium, with all eight teams in quarterfinal action. Thursday’s winners will meet in the semifinals on Friday, April 24 at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., and the ACC Championship title game is set for Sunday, April 26 at 1 p.m.

All seven games of the women's tournament will be televised on the ACC’s Regional Sports Networks (RSN) and will also be available on ESPN3.
