The UMass Minutemen men's lacrosse team represents the University of Massachusetts Amherst in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I men's lacrosse.[2]

History

UMass had competed in the ECAC Lacrosse League since 2000, but in 2010 transferred to the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA). They play their home games at Garber Field in Amherst, Massachusetts. The Minutemen have fielded a varsity team since 1954. Since that time, there have only named 4 head coaches: Al Goodyear in 1954, Dick Garber (after which the present lacrosse field is named) from 1955-1990, Ted Garber from 1991-1994, and the present coach Greg Cannella beginning in 1995.

They have been New England ILA Champions 21 times (1963, 1969, 1974, 1976-1979, 1981, 1984, 1986-1990, 1993, 1997, 2001-2003, 2005, and 2006). Prior to the NCAA, they reached the semifinals in the USILA tournament in 1972 and 1973.

UMass reached the NCAA finals in 2006, becoming just the third unseeded team to reach the finals. And in 2002, the Minutemen came close to a semi-final appearance, scoring 2 goals in the final 25 seconds of regulation, losing to Johns Hopkins in overtime.
