Genesee Clashes With Nassau in National Semifinals

No. 4 nationally-ranked GCC will make its second consecutive appearance in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Men's Lacrosse National Final Four on Saturday when the Cougars play No. 1 Nassau CC at noon at David W. Murphy Field on the campus of Onondaga CC in Syracuse.

Genesee won its opening round play-in matchup against Howard CC (MD) on May 7, 19-9 and has reached the national semifinals for the fifth time in six years. The Cougars have yet to reach the national finals.

Nassau, the tournament's overall No. 1 seed and top ranked team in the country, enters Saturday's contest with a 13-0 record and the Lions have held the top ranking for eight straight weeks. Nassau defeated Genesee in the only matchup between the two schools this season on Apr. 9, 10-7 at GCC.

Saturday's winner will advance to the national title game on Sunday at 1 p.m. and play the winner of No. 2 Onondaga CC and No. 3 CCBC-Essex. Both teams will square off in the semifinals on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
