Cleveland (February 27, 2017) – Cleveland State is underway as an NCAA Division I men’s lacrosse program. The team, under head coach Dylan Sheridan, is 2-4. They’ve won two games against DIII opponents (as part of their first-year transition) and dropped games to Michigan, Duke, Denver, and Air Force. They play Canisius (1-2) this Saturday at home.
The Vikings, who formerly were a high-level MCLA team, are independent in 2017 and play 15 games.
The last Division I program to begin play was Virginia’s Hampton University. The Pirates launched from the NCLL and played a five-game transitional schedule in year one. This year they bumped up to eight. They are led my former Morgan State alum, Lloyd Carter.
