On Saturday, two newcomers to the WCLL, Mt. Vernon Nazarene University and Kent State University will face off. Both teams have competed independently over the past few seasons, but are looking to make a strong entrance into the league.
MVNU Junior, Bekah Kalas, shares her thoughts on joining the WCLO, “Being a part of the WCLO gives us a greater incentive and holds more weight to succeed at a high level of competition. It creates a community of lacrosse players that respect their competitors because we are all working towards the same goal.”

Other teams seeing action this weekend include Wake Forest, Iowa State, Coastal Carolina, Wilmington, and Elon.
