The Golden Eagles ran out to a 7-0 start this spring, rising to as high as No. 10 in the Nike/Lacrosse Magazine Top 20 in mid-March.

Last year, the Bears (8-2, 2-1) suffered a crushing overtime defeat to the Bulldogs (8-2, 2-2 Ivy), but this time around they have their sights set on flipping the script.
