College Lacrosse

This week on The Best of WAER Sports Podcast if you're looking for parity, you'll find it in College Lacrosse. With the NCAA Tournament underway many are wondering who will come out on top.

With seven different teams holding the #1 ranking this year, that is very much still up for debate. This week WAER's Tyler Aki takes a look at this year's loaded NCAA Tournament field.
