Curious when will Hobart drop their lax team back to D3.  They've mostly been sub .500 since moving up. It really doesn't make sense.

Tough question for a program that has ten(?) national championships to their resume.

All 10(?) are at the D3 level.  Part of Hartwick's logic for moving down was their soccer team was no longer competitive at the D1 level.  The same can be said for Hobart.  Since moving up to D1, they're a lackluster 148-178 (.453). At least Hartwick had some good years every now again, including 1st place conference finishes in 2014 and 2015. Hobart has only finished above .500 6x since moving to D1 in 1995.  But whatever, it was more a rhetorical question.

Oh that's right... I forgot about that. I get it confused because I called Georgetown lacrosse games for so long that I kept equating their old coach with being in the same league as Hobart.

Good point.

In that case, not sure is the answer. LOL
