The WAC posted a 4-1 regular season record and defeated Kavu in the Seattle semifinals and the Seattle Lacrosse Club in the Seattle championship game.
The WAC beat the Oregon champion, Team “503”, in the league championship. The championship effort was led by Cole Nordstrom, who scored seven goals. Scott Spencer, the netminder for the WAC, posted a strong save percentage to help the team to a 13–9 victory.
