Good morning. Here’s the latest from around the lacrosse world:

1.  The NCAA Division I men’s championship weekend welcomes new and old.

Rutgers is headed to its first NCAA championship weekend, joining past NCAA champions Cornell, Maryland and Princeton. Here’s how they got there:

2. The University of Indianapolis brought home a national title to the Midwest.

Peyton Romig scored twice and had 16 draw controls as the University of Indianapolis downed East Stroudsburg 11-9 to win the NCAA Division II Women’s Lacrosse Championship.

3. A new champion is coming to the NCAA Division II men’s lacrosse.

LeMoyne and Limestone have combined for 11 nationals championships, but they were bested by two upstarts on Sunday. Mercy beat LeMoyne 12-11 in double overtime and Tampa, led by first-year head coach J.B. Clarke, rolled past his old team, Limestone, 19-8. Mercy and Tampa are both in the final for the first time ever.

4. It’s an all Liberty League final in NCAA Division III men’s lacrosse.

RIT and Union knocked off Tufts and York, respectively, to reach the NCAA Division III championship game. RIT scored a season-high 26 goals and Union scored the first six goals of the game. RIT won the Division III championship last year. Union’s last title? How about 1929 when it shared the USILA title with Navy.

5. The NCAA Division III women’s semifinals will feature a pair of NESCAC teams — Middlebury and Tufts — alongside perennial powers Gettysburg and TCNJ.
