Denver Women’s Lacrosse Goes Dancing

Unseeded Denver women’s lacrosse (12-6, 7-4) was rewarded for an excellent season with several signature wins and a run to the Big EAST title game and loss to #6 seed Florida. The Pioneers will play unseeded High Point (17-2, 7-0) for the chance to play the tournaments #1 seed Maryland in the second round.

The Pioneers appear to be pleased with their entry into the tournament.

While the Big South Conference High Point Panthers will be no easy task, a win would give Denver a chance to take on the Tournament #1 seed – and a chance to make even more noise.

The full bracket is shown below:

Denver faces High Point May 11th. The first round game will be at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex on the campus of the University of Maryland on Friday, May 11 at 4 pm ET/ 2 pm MT, with the winner to play the No. 1 overall seed Maryland. Tickets can be purchased on the Maryland ticket page.

  1. Congrats on a very good season for coach Liza Kelly’s team.

    DU has a solid shot to beat High Point, but virtually no shot to beat top-ranked Maryland at home.

  2. The move to the Big EAST has proven to be a great move for Denver. Kelly has had a couple of very good recent recruiting classes and it is starting to pay off.

  3. BTW, DU should be favored in the BE next season. Current BIG EAST affiliate members Cincinnati, Connecticut, Florida, Temple and Vanderbilt will shift to AAC play.

  4. DU and High Point looks to be a good matchup. Pios need to bury their chances, since HPU is really strong at free position shots. Gregg needs to be on her game in goal, too.
