Good morning. Here’s the latest from around the lacrosse world:

1. The perfect season is complete.

Cornell made a late run, but in the end there was no denying this Maryland team. The Terps beat the Big Red 9-7 to complete an undefeated season by capturing the NCAA Division I championship.

2. Logan McNaney returns a winner.

On a team of stalwarts, Maryland goalie Logan McNaney stood out over Memorial Day Weekend, making 17 saves in the championship game to earn tournament Most Outstanding Player honors.

3. From earlier in the weekend

  • Taylor Moreno came up big, Sam Geiersbach scored the game-winner again and North Carolina brought home its first NCAA Division I women’s lacrosse championship since 2016. A sold out crowd and national television audience on ESPN saw the Tar Heels 14-13 thriller over Boston College.

  • J.B. Clarke has won national championships before, but this time he did it a new home. The former Limestone coach led Tampa to the NCAA Division II men’s title in his first season leading the Spartans with an 11-7 win over Mercy.

  • Union pushed RIT to the brink once more, but the Tigers rallied for a 12-10 win to capture their second straight NCAA Division III men’s lacrosse championship.

  • Playing a full season for the first time since 2019, Middlebury went back to the hero of its 2019 champioship — Jane Earley. Earley scored six goals, including three straight to start a game-closing six-goal run in a 13-5 win over Tufts in the NCAA Divison III women’s championship game.

  • Massachusetts/Rhode Island captured its third straight championship in the top division of the USA Lacrosse Women’s National Tournament. MA/RI’s Giulia Colarusso scored three goals, including the game-winner and won the Heather Leigh Albert Award as the tournament’s outstanding player.
