WILLIMANTIC, CT- After a disappointing 2016-17 season that saw the Warriors lose 10 of 18 games, the Eastern Connecticut State University men’s lacrosse team is looking to reestablish itself as a serious contender in the Little East Conference.
Thanks to the return of 16 letter winners from last year, the team is looking to bounce back after only the second losing season in program history.
Among the student-athletes playing for this season’s team is Brett Chin, class of 2020 from Framingham.
Chin plays the midfield position and majors in computer science.
So far in the 2017-18 season, the Warriors have a record of 2-1. Their next competition is March 11 at Whittier College.

The Little East Conference (LEC) was established in 1986 as a single-sport league by six public institutions throughout New England. The LEC has since become a multi-sport league with eight primary members, six affiliate members and 19 championships.
Eastern offers a broad-based, Division III athletic program aimed at safeguarding the amateur aspects of the various sports and maintaining the proper perspective of athletics within Eastern’s academic mission. By placing emphasis on the values of equity, diversity, sportsmanship, health and wellbeing, Eastern’s athletic program encourages students to contribute more effectively to our society and live richer, fuller lives.
