Last spring the men’s lacrosse team came close to making history, being the first men’s lacrosse team at Lasell to win a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) title. The men squared up against the Saints of Emmanuel College in the GNAC Championship game. It was a nail biting game. In the end, the Saints earned the victory over the Lasers with a final score of 14 – 13, proving it was a true battle for the GNAC title.

The 2015 soccer season concluded with a stunning finish to the Great North-east Athletic Conference (GNAC) women’s soccer tournament at Lasell. The Lasers took on the Emmanuel College Saints. The championship match was scoreless for 85 minutes before current sophomore Carly Zdanek put the Lasers in front, until the Saints tied it up two minutes later. The score was 1-1 after regulation and stayed that way through two overtime periods. This led to a penalty kick shootout.
