Each school hopes to make it to the NCAA National Championships this year with both being held in Maryland. The Men’s National Championship returns to Baltimore and M&T Bank Stadium May 24-26 and the Women’s National Championship returns to Towson at Johnny Unitas Stadium May 23-25. Last time Towson hosted the tournament championship game an attendance record was set for a women’s lacrosse match.
