At this point, we're all well aware of the on field accomplishments of Marquette men's lacrosse this season. A new program high in wins, a Big East tournament title, the program's first ever appearance in the NCAA tournament. All notable accomplishments across the board, but we're going to dive a little bit deeper here.

Much like we did with the women's lacrosse team, we're going to take a look at all the new records that were set by Marquette this season, both all-time records, and single season records.  As a guide, anything you see that has been bolded, that's a number that was either improved or set this season, depending on which category we're talking about.

Let's get into it!
