1982 NCAA Women's Lacrosse Championship

The 1982 NCAA Women's Lacrosse Championship was the first annual single-elimination tournament to determine the national championship of NCAA women's college lacrosse. Unlike later editions, this title was determined by a single game. The championship game was played at Lions Stadium in Trenton, New Jersey during May 1982. [1]

The Massachusetts Minutewomen won their first championship by defeating the host Trenton State Lions in the final, 9–6.

The leading scorer in the match was Repy Hattersly, from Trenton State, with 4 goals. There was no All-Tournament Team or Most Outstanding Player named this year.


Until 1985, there was only one NCAA championship; a Division III title was added in 1985 and a Division II title in 2001. Hence, all NCAA women's lacrosse programs were eligible for this championship. Nonetheless, only 2 teams were invited to participate.
