Lakeland's win over UW-Oshkosh was the first of the year in 7 matches.
10 of Lakeland's losses are to conference foes Marquette and UW-Oshkosh.
This was Lakeland's 3rd straight 2nd place finish in the State Tournament.
Marquette's sweep of Lakeland in the Finals was the first match-up of the 6 meetings between the teams that did not go a deciding game.
Quote from Coach Schreiber:
"The buzz of the weekend was finally getting the monkey off our back against Oshkosh who I feel is the best team in the nation. But that buzz was killed shortly later when we could not muster enough energy to compete with Marquette in the finals. It will probably feel better down the road, but right now we have a national championship to focus on."
