Since the advent of the modern-day Big East, there have primarily been two teams who have dominated on the lacrosse field: Denver and Georgetown. The Pioneers won the conference title in 2014 as well as in 2015 when they won the national title. In recent years, the Hoyas have become the team to beat as they have won the past three conference titles (2018, 2019, 2021) and will be the favorite coming into 2022.

Since UAlbany’s trip to Championship Weekend in 2018, the America East has become more wide open and thus more competitive from top to bottom. UMBC won the conference as the No. 4 seed in 2019 and Vermont won the conference in 2021 to make their first-ever trip to the NCAA Tournament. With so much talent returning for both of those aforementioned squads, as well as UAlbany and Stony Brook, it should be a tightly-contested race at the top once again in 2022.
