Tufts advances to D III lacrosse finals

On Friday we covered the graduation ceremonies for the eight seniors on the Tufts University lacrosse team. The seniors had a special ceremony because they were playing in the D III semifinals on Sunday during the all-school commencement ceremony.

Following up on the game, Tufts beat RIT 16-12 to advance to the finals this coming Sunday. Tufts will play Salisbury for the chance to win its second straight D III title. Tufts beat Salisbury 9-6 in the finals last season – it was the school’s first-ever NCAA team title.
