After ending the regular season as the No. 1 seed, Trinity defeated Amherst for its fourth straight NESCAC title. In the final poll of the campaign released by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA), the Bantams were ranked No. 2 in the country behind two-time defending champion Salisbury after finishing as the national runner-up. For the third straight season, Trinity won the regional crown in the NCAA tournament and advanced to take on Cortland State in the Final Four. The Bantams erased a second-half deficit to defeat the Red Dragons before falling against Salisbury in the NCAA Finals.
