The Lasell College Women’s Field Hockey team joined a new conference this year, leaving the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) and joining the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC).
The change puts the Women’s Field Hockey team in the same conference as the rest of the athletic teams at Lasell. Lasell is one of four teams to join the GNAC from the NAC, the other three being Rivier, St. Joseph’s Maine, and Simmons. Mount Ida is in its first year as a program, Anna Maria joined from the New England Collegiate Conference, and Johnson and Wales was an independent program last year.
