1983 NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship

We’ve come across a few old school lacrosse videos. We’ll be sharing them with you periodically. First up was a highlight reel of Hopkins legend, Peter Scott. Today, we bring you the highlights from the ’83 championship.

The 1983 NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship was played at Rutgers University in front of 15,672 fans. Syracuse capped off a 14-1 season with its first “official” NCAA championship as they defeated Johns Hopkins 17 – 16. The Orange led by All-Americans Brad Kotz and Tim Nelson, scored eight straight goals in less than nine minutes late in the game to clinch the title, after Hopkins had gone up 12 – 5 midway through the third quarter. Kotz was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
