NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Tournament comes to GBG this weekend

The Gettysburg College women’s lacrosse team will begin its trip to the NCAA Division III Championship on its own turf as the Bullets will host the first two rounds of the tournament at Clark Field on May 14-15.

After winning its record 13th Centennial Conference championship and earning an automatic bid to the NCAA playoffs, Gettysburg (16-3) received a first-round bye in the NCAA bracket. The Bullets will await the winner between Colonial States Athletic Conference champion Bryn Athyn (11-2) and Roanoke College (14-4), which earned an at-large selection out of the Old Domination Athletic Conference. Bryn Athyn and Roanoke will meet on Clark Field on Saturday at 1 p.m.


Gettysburg will be making its 20th appearance in the postseason since 2000. After the 2020 NCAA Tournament was cancelled due to the pandemic, the Bullets missed out on an at-large selection after finishing runner-up to Franklin & Marshall College in 2021. The team returned with a vengeance this spring, knocking off the Diplomats twice, including an 8-5 in the conference championship this past weekend.

The Bullets have spent a large portion of their NCAA history on the home turf with 34 total games played. Gettysburg has hosted a first or second round game in each of their last 11 national playoff appearances and they have lost their NCAA opener only twice over the last 22 years. The Bullets rank fourth all-time with 38 national playoff victories and they have won three national titles in 2011, 2017, and 2018.

Gettysburg has never faced Bryn Athyn. The Bullets are 2-0 against Roanoke, including a 15-6 win over the Maroons in the 2009 NCAA Tournament.

Games are scheduled for 1:00 p.m. but subject to change.
