Tufts University defeated Calvin College in double overtime to win the NCAA Division 3 National Championship. This was Tuft's second
D3 National Championship in the last three years. Long time LMSC player and Harriton High School graduate
helped give Tufts the championship. Lawson
played for the LMSC Cannibals and the LMSC Panthers.
"In 2014, it was just an amazing feeling to have had that success," noted Lawson, who played high school soccer at
Harriton and spent his entire club career with Lower Merion SC. "This year, the success was doubly fun, since it was
driven by the understudies from 2014 that weren't necessarily expected to have big successes ahead. And the fact that
we were underdogs throughout both runs made it even sweeter, since every game really felt like it could easily be the last."
