CLAREMONT, Calif. - After upgrading from club to varsity in 2003, the CMS women’s lacrosse program quickly showed that the program had some serious promise. Despite a loss, the Athenas’ debut game showed that CMS was going to be a factor in the sport for years to come, taking Bates, a long-established NESCAC program which had been around since the 1970s, into double overtime before falling 10-9, before going on to a 10-3 season.

CLAREMONT, Calif. - The eight members of the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps women's lacrosse senior class were 3-for-3 winning SCIAC titles in their first three seasons, compiling a 41-1 league record over their careers. Their chance at a fourth straight league title and trip to the NCAA Division III Tournament was denied by the sudden suspension of spring sports, as well as the chance for a normal Senior Day tribute at the final regular season home game, so we decided to pay tribute to the CMS Women's Lacrosse Class of 2020 via video instead.
