Editor’s note: This is the fifth in a series of 11 preseason stories looking at men’s lacrosse teams in the NESCAC, regarded as the strongest league in Division 3, counting down to the season openers in late February.
Tufts senior defender Jack Donohue (Cohasset, Mass.) summed it up succinctly this week:
“Saturday’s Christmas,” he said. “The best day of the year.”
Saturday is the day NESCAC lacrosse teams can hold their first formal practices. For most teams, two weeks separate them from the first games that count.
