Before last season got halted by the pandemic, Merrimack was only 1-5 in its first season in Division 1, but the win -- at Michigan -- was a worthy milestone.
This year, the Warriors have continued to add to the program’s D-1 foundation. Veterans like Christian Thomas (Wrentham, Mass.) and Sean Black (Cheshire, Conn.) -- key parts of the Division 2 national championship teams -- are climbing in the school’s record books and aiding some more significant victories.
With the region’s top teams absorbing losses over the weekend, Merrimack is one of the few programs trending upward in our Power Rankings.
