The SIU Men’s Lacrosse club has moved conferences within the MCLA, for the 2018 season they will be apart of the Lone Star Alliance. The move was prompted by the D1 teams in the GRLC moving to the UMLC leaving no AQ to nationals with the GRLC. All of the D2 teams from the GRLC have also went to the LSA creating another sub-division within the LSA. The Saluki’s were ranked 18 out of the 27 teams in the coaches preseason poll.
