Cleveland 
- Cleveland State is underway as an NCAA Division I men's lacrosse program. The team, under head coach Dylan Sheridan, is 2-4. They've won two games against DIII opponents (as part of their first-year transition) and dropped games to Michigan, Duke, Denver, and Air Force. They play Canisius (1-2) this Saturday at home.

The Vikings, who formerly were a high-level MCLA team,  are independent in 2017 and play 15 games.

The last Division I program to begin play was Virginia's Hampton University. The Pirates launched from the NCLL and played a five-game transitional schedule in year one. This year they bumped up to eight. They are led my former Morgan State alum,  Lloyd Carter.
