Harford Women's Lacrosse Returns, Earns Top Spot
14 February 2022
Harford men's lacrosse ranked 2nd in NJCAA Preseason Poll
The Harford women's lacrosse team is set to return to the field this March 12 when their regular season starts, and they’ll do so as the No. 1 team, according to the National Junior College Athletic Association preseason poll.
The Fighting Owls women last played on March 7, 2020, when they defeated Finger Lakes 19-1 to open the season. The season prior, the Fighting Owls women finished 14-1 and won the women’s lax program's first national championship. Harford begins the 2022 season almost two years to the date when it faces the Carroll Community College Lynx on March 12 (time TBD).
The Harford men's lacrosse team earned the No. 2 ranking in the National Junior College Athletic Association preseason lacrosse poll. Harford’s men kickstarts its season on February 26 with a showdown against No. 5 Onondaga Lazers, who didn’t play in the 2021 season but have won the national championship on 12 occasions.
The ranking slots the Fighting Owls exactly where they perched for the entirety of their 2021 campaign, which saw Harford finish just seconds shy of its first national championship before falling in double overtime to No. 1 Nassau. The Fighting Owls are led by a trio of returners in NJCAA All-American Cayden Onagi as well as All-Region 20 members Zach Sheppard and Taz DeLaney. Flanking these three are second-year standouts Everett Campbell, Chris Greenstein, Nate Surd, and Dylan Hines.
