LANCASTER, Pa. – The Franklin & Marshall women's lacrosse team will begin the quest for its third NCAA National Championship on Wednesday when the sixth-ranked Diplomats host Elizabethtown in a first round game. Game time is set for 3:00 p.m. The Diplomats, making their 15th NCAA tournament appearance, learned their playoff fate when the field was announced Sunday night.
Wednesday's winner will advance to the weekend's regional round to face the winner of the first-round meeting between York (13-4) and Washington & Lee (10-9). F&M defeated both teams earlier this season.
F&M is 19-11 in NCAA playoff games and 11-1 in home NCAA games since the start of the 2006 tournament.
