Men's lacrosse wins Patriot League title
Posted: May 01, 2011
LEWISBURG, Pa. — Tournament most valuable player Charlie Streep scored three goals and assisted on another, and the Bucknell defense turned in yet another gem as the 12th-ranked Bison added yet another milestone to a remarkable season with a 10-3 runaway over No. 16 Colgate in the Patriot League championship game on Sunday at Christy Mathewson-Memorial Stadium.
Now 14-2, Bucknell will be headed back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2001, and for the second time in program history.
The Bison, who came in ranked No. 9 in the Division I RPI, will find out their NCAA destination next Sunday, May 8, at 9 p.m. on ESPNU. Now 9-0 at home in 2011, Bucknell could be in the running to host an NCAA Tournament game for the first time.
Bucknell swept all eight games against Patriot League competition this season and won its two Patriot League Tournament games by a combined margin of 23-8. Sunday's win was the 300th in program history, which dates back to 1968. It was one of the team's most complete performances of the season, featuring an early onslaught from the offense, suffocating defense all over the field, and superior goaltending.
