2019 Men’s College Lacrosse Year In Review: #21 Quinnipiac Bobcats.

Season Summary - Quinnipiac’s fall semester was marred with trouble surrounding the program. In late September, the program was suspended for violating the university’s student conduct policy. A week later, longtime head coach Eric Fekete was let go and replaced with Mason Poli on an interim basis.
