Last week, LRNews went behind the scenes with the Wesleyan Men’s Lacrosse team for a Fall weekend, catching a glimpse of the program both on and off the field.

Check out the video to see our spotlight on the Cardinals.

At Wesleyan, the student-athlete experience is one predicated on the balance between academics and athletics. Being a student first is stressed heavily in the program, and finding athletes that want to exceed both in the classroom and on the field provides a great window into the Division III lacrosse experience.

Taking in a captain’s practice (NESCAC rules prohibit organized team activity in the Fall) and Homecoming Weekend, it was obvious this year’s team is motivated for the upcoming season.

In the interest of disclosure, I am graduate of the University, and can attest to the excellent balance a school like Wesleyan provides a student-athlete.
