New England is home to some of the best Division III lacrosse around.
Three of the past five national titles have returned to the region, with Tufts (2014, 2015) and Wesleyan (2018) bookending Salisbury's continued dominance. Those wins have reaffirmed that the NESCAC is likely the hardest college conference around.

The group, listed below in alphabetical order, features several All-Americans and national title contenders. Each player is from Massachusetts or Connecticut, two hotbeds for lacrosse.
