The NESCAC, understandably so, is lauded as the premier lacrosse conference in Division 3. However, much of its roots stem back to the Little Three, a conference with a foundation in the early 1900s.
It’s three participants, you might ask? Williams, Amherst and defending national champions Wesleyan.
Come Sunday at 1 p.m., the former two will square off in an NCAA tournament semifinal in Williamstown, Mass. Both scored upsets – at least based on seedings – in the quarterfinals Wednesday, with Amherst knocking off fellow NESCAC side Tufts, 13-11, and Williams taking down RIT, 12-11, in double overtime.
