In both 2018 and 2019 Lehigh reached the Patriot League title, only to fall and see their NCAA Tournament hopes cut short. Following a shortened 2020 season, the Mountain Hawks found themselves back in the Patriot League championship, and while Lehigh grabbed the conference’s NCAA AQ spot as the Patriot League champions it will always be followed by an asterisk due to Loyola having to forfeit.

They then added one more to end the contest on a 7-1 run and advance to the Patriot League semifinals. In that semifinal contest, the Raiders fell to Lehigh 13-9 in a game that saw four ties in the first half of play. It was only a four-goal Lehigh run from late in the second through late in the third that sealed the deal and ultimately ended the Raiders’ season.
