Ohio State Men’s Lacrosse Falls in ECAC Tournament, Head for Big Ten
The Buckeyes finished their season 6-8 overall and 3-1 in the ECAC to clinch a share of the conference title, but lost their first game in the conference tournament May 1. OSU fell to Air Force, 14-7, in Columbus. Junior midfielder Jesse King led the team with 29 goals and 22 assists and sophomore attackman Carter Brown added 22 goals and 12 assists. Senior defenseman Joe Meurer was selected by Florida in the 2014 MLL Collegiate. 2014 was OSU’s last in the ECAC as Big Ten lacrosse gets set to start off in 2015.

There are four former Buckeyes currently on the Machine’s active roster. Defenseman Greg Bice, midfielder Eric O’Brien, attackman Logan Schuss and midfielder Dominique Alexander have all played important roles for the Machine in 2014.

OSU Women Make NCAA Tournament
The lady Buckeyes finished their regular season 12-5 before losing their second game at the ALC Tournament. Despite the loss, OSU clinched a berth in the NCAA Tournament, but lost in the first round to Louisville, 11-10, in double overtime. Junior Jackie Cifarelli scored 17 goals with 46 assists and senior Katie Chase scored 49 goals on the season.

Ohio Wesleyan Well Represented in All-NCAC Team
Eleven members of the Ohio Wesleyan men’s lacrosse team were named to the All-North Coast Athletic Conference teams. Five of them made the first team, including defenseman Steve Barnett, defenseman Stephen Coyne, midfielder Kyle Foster, goalie Ryan McMahon and attackman John Umbach. The Battling Bishops finished their season 12-4 and lost to Denison – another Ohio school – in the second round of the NCAC Tournament.

Wilmington Lacrosse Closes out Second Season

Despite a limited roster size, Marzano, an assistant coach with the Machine, guided the Quakers to a 4-11 record. Midfielder Jalen Jackson posted a standout season with 23 goals and 46 assists, earning him 1st team all-conference honors.
