Johns Hopkins misses out on NCAA tournament for first time in 42 years

The Baltimore Sun

The NCAA Division I men's lacrosse tournament will be missing Johns Hopkins for the first time in 42 years this season.

After a 9-5 season, the Blue Jays were left out of the NCAA Tournament tonight. But three local teams will be playing next weekend.

Maryland is the No. 6 seed and will face Cornell Sunday at 1 p.m. in College Park. Towson, the winner of the CAA tournament, will face No. 3 seed Ohio State Sunday at 3 p.m. in Columbus. Defending national champion Loyola will face Duke in Raleigh, N.C., on Sunday at 5:15 p.m.

The lack of quality wins hurt Johns Hopkins this season. The Blue Jays last won the NCAA title in 2007.

Syracuse is the No. 1 overall seed and will play host to Bryant. Notre Dame is the No. 2 seed and will face Detroit.
