Syracuse, shown here celebrating during its game against Binghamton earlier this season, are only the second NCAA team reach 900 victories.

A historic day for the Syracuse men’s lacrosse team on Saturday following its 10-6 win over Notre Dame.

The Orange became the second team in NCAA Division I history to win 900 games. Syracuse joins Johns Hopkins with that accomplishment, as the Blue Jays  have 977 wins.

“Being from the area it means a lot to be apart of it, especially in such a great win.”  Liverpool native and Syracuse goalie Dom Madonna said.

“It was definitely a great win for us today,” Syracuse head coach John Desko said.

Syracuse have only lost 343 games as a collegiate program, which began at the university in 1916.

Syracuse plays Hobart for the Kraus-Simmons Trophy on April 3. The game starts at 7 p.m., and is in the Carrier Dome.
