MCLA Fan spotted these snapshots on Facebook and couldn’t help but share. Congrats to the Oregon State University men’s lacrosse team, newly crowned champions of the Pacific Northwest Collegiate Lacrosse League.
This marks the first time a team other than University of Oregon or Simon Fraser University has won the PNCLL title since 2002. And it’s also the first time that Oregon State has ever gone to Nationals.
Congrats to Oregon State for beating Oregon and winning the PNCLL. First ever trip to nationals for the Beavers.

How far will the Beavs need to go in the MCLA National Tournament before Widmer starts receiving MCLA All-American votes? Having played with him last summer on Team LaxAllStars at the Tahoe Lacrosse Tournament, we can honestly say the kid is a machine in cage.
Also, what gives a team a better chance of winning the MCLA title – having a potent offense or a dominate defense? Sound off in the comments section below and let us know what Oregon State will have to do to succeed in Greenville!
