SAN DIEGO -- With perennial conference champion -- and last year's Division II title winner -- Concordia-Irvine moving to Division I this spring, the door is open for a new favorite in the Southwestern Lacrosse Conference (SLC).
Cal State Fullerton has stepped in to fill the void.
The Titans (11-4), which qualified for the 2017 MCLA National Championships powered by Under Armour, had two of its four losses come against the Eagles.
Northern Arizona (13-2), the team that handed Fullerton another loss during the regular season, was voted into second place.
San Diego (7-6) and Cal State San Marcos (8-5) round out the top four in the 12-team league.
