The Holy Cross Crusaders are the 71st DI program and the ninth from the Patriot League to release their 2022 men’s lacrosse schedule. The Crusaders are coming off a 2021 campaign in which they went 2-4 (1-3 Patriot League) and saw their season cut short. It was year one of the J.L. Reppert era.

The SoCon lacrosse enters a new era in 2022 as the conference will not have Air Force and Bellarmine as members for the first time since the conference added the sport. Additionally, Hampton has joined the conference. This shake-up will change the landscape of this conference a bit for sure, but overall we should still see the big three of Richmond, Jacksonville, and High Point sit above the rest.

Last season was a unique one for the Patriot League. Not only did the league opt for an alternate schedule that split the conference into two divisions, but they then went back and forth on what the postseason would look like. Lastly, the conference tournament was shortened due to Loyola having a positive COVID test so Lehigh got to claim the title.

2022 NEC Preview

The NEC has been an ever-changing conference in recent years. The addition of LIU and Merrimack have added new blood to the conference and the exit of Robert Morris following the 2020 season left a space where one of the best teams as of recent used to sit. The NEC has been a very interesting league to follow over the last few years and don’t expect that to change in 2022, especially amongst the top-tier teams in the conference.

2022 MAAC Preview

The MAAC might’ve gone down as the weirdest conference last season. Playing a conference-only schedule, there were many problems that certain teams ran into. First of all, Marist barley got to play and secondly, Quinnipiac had their season shut down with a week left in the regular-season. But beyond on all those issues, it was a fun league to follow a year ago as every team just continued to beat each other up week in and week out.

The Ivy League is back!

After being the only conference to sit out last season, Ivy League lacrosse is back in 2022 and so is conference’s top-tier talent and teams. When the Ivy League last played, they were arguably the best conference in the country. At the time in which the 2020 season was cancelled, three teams from the Ivy League were ranked in the top-five (Cornell, Princeton, Yale). Penn was also ranked in the top-20 to end the season, giving the conference four teams ranked in the top-20. Brown was also receiving votes at the time the season ended and Dartmouth had also received votes during that shortened season.
