The University has one of the most decorated lacrosse programs in the country with 18 CUFLA titles in its 31-year history.In addition to the perfect record, this year’s Badgers squad set both a team and CUFLA single-season record with 232 goals scored.“We’re happy with the season we’ve had to date,” said first-year head coach Tim Luey. “Finishing 12-0 is no small feat, but going into the season our team goal was not just to go undefeated or finish first place. We have a group of veteran players that are excited to get back into the playoffs and compete for our real goal of a national championship.”The Badgers had five players in the Top 25 of CUFLA scoring led by Brandon Slade who registered a career-high 86 points (28 goals, 58 assists) in 12 games. He became just the second player in school history to record 300 points in a career.Tyrus Rehanek finished 12th in league with 46 points, Kurtis Woodland had 39 points, Connor Ham had 34 points and rookie Connor Brown added 33.The Badgers also have one of the top defensive units in the league led by two-time CUFLA Defensive Player of the Year, Parker Baile, along with Joshua Harris, Adam Kirchmayer, Adam Mackinnon and rookie standout Latrell Harris, who also plays in the National Lacrosse League. read more
