2016-17 CSU Athletics Top 10 Moments | #6 Men's Lacrosse Hosts Michigan for Inaugural Game
The men’s lacrosse team hosted Michigan for the inaugural game in program history on Feb. 4 in the Krenzler Dome in front of a sold out crowd. The Vikings began their existence as the 71st Division I program in the country by scoring the opening goal of the game off the stick of midfielder Nick Wendel just 3:23 into the contest, giving CSU a 1-0 lead. CSU would fall to Michigan, 13-8, and would go on to play five ranked teams over the course of the season, including top-ranked Denver (Feb. 25) and Penn State (March 25). The Vikings finished the inaugural season with four wins, including a 13-6 win over Detroit Mercy at Krenzler Field in the season finale, marking the first win over a Division I team for the program.
