The women’s lacrosse team has played all but one of their seven conference games, earning five wins along the way. They currently boast the third best record in the Little East Conference (LEC) behind Plymouth State (2nd) and Western Connecticut University (1st) who they will face on March 29. With leadership from powerhouse attacker Rachel Shanks (56 goals) and dependable goalkeeper Cece Racine (5x LEC Goalie of the Week), the Huskies will be strong contenders for this season’s LEC Championship title. 

The men’s lacrosse team sits seventh in theLEC, tallying two wins in seven conference games. Despite not achieving the record they had hoped for, numerous Huskies have earned impressive numbers on the stats sheet, including seniors Nick James (41 goals) and Omar Contrearas (33), and junior Schuyler Wetmore (37). 

The women’s softball team has collected six wins in the ten conference games they have played so far this season. In the LEC, the Huskies currently hold the best fielding average and the second-best pitching average as a result of talented pitching tandem Lauren Merill (2.39 ERA) and Lexus McIntosh (2.26 ERA). They enter tournament play on May 11 and look to capture the title after finishing in second place last year. 

The men’s baseball team currently sits in fourth place in the LEC, winning seven of the eleven conference games they have played so far this season. They begin tournament play on May 10 where they will battle for another LEC title after bringing one home in 2021. Jason Komulainen leads the team with a .329 batting average and 18 RBIs, while junior pitcher Bryce Afthim has an earned-runs-average of under 3 in 48 innings.
