NCAA Lacrosse: Men’s and Women’s Championship Weekend from Philadelphia

Top-seeded Notre Dame leads the field for the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship Presented by Northwestern Mutual on ESPN2 on Saturday, May 23, and Monday, May 25, from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. The semifinals will be shown on ESPN2 and WatchESPN as seed Notre Dame faces No. 4 seed Denver at 1 p.m., followed by Johns Hopkins vs. No. 6 seed Maryland at 3:30 p.m. The 2015 season will culminate with the National Championship Monday at 1 p.m., also on ESPN2 and WatchESPN.

Eamon McAnaney (former Notre Dame defenseman) will call the action analyst Quint Kessenich (former Johns Hopkins goalkeeper) and sideline reporter/analyst Paul Carcaterra (former Syracuse midfielder). Kessenich and Carcaterra both played in four NCAA Championships and each won a national title with their teams.

Anish Shroff will host ESPN’s studio coverage with analyst Ryan Flanagan (former North Carolina defenseman) for the semifinals on Saturday.

The National Championship game on Monday will also air on ESPNU with the Spider Cam feed – an alternate viewing fan experience that is who integrated into the traditional telecast.

As part of the College Sports PR team at ESPN, it has been an exciting adventure for me since I joined the worldwide leader in July 2010, working on college football, college basketball, college lacrosse and WNBA properties. I began my love of sports as the manager of several high school sports teams and continued that hobby into college. While at Quinnipiac, I worked in the Sports Information Department, which led me to a summer internship at the New Haven Ravens, a AA baseball team, and an eventual job with the Athletic Communications Department at the University of Connecticut. After my five-year stint at Connecticut, I spent six years as Director of Communications at the BIG EAST Conference in Providence, R.I. before joining ESPN.
