For the second straight year, the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA), a national organization of collegiate lacrosse programs, presented custom recognition awards created by Bennett Awards at its National Championship tournament.
Recognition awards were presented to the MCLA National Champions in two different divisions: one award for Division I, and another award for Division II. In Division I, #1 seed Grand Canyon University hoisted the custom National Championship trophy after beating #2 seed University of Colorado 9 to 8. In Division II, #6 seed Dayton University claimed the title after their 12 to 11 victory over #1 seed Concordia University. The National Championship tournament was held May 11-16, 2015 at Chapman University in Orange, California.
In 2014, the MCLA commissioned Bennett Awards to create a new, unique custom award design for their National Championship trophy. The design of the award is based on the MCLA logo: an impressionistic shape of the curved end of a lacrosse stick. The physical awards are created in a combination of both anodized steel and acrylic. The outer edges of the awards are constructed from the anodized steel, and clear acrylic is used for the inside of the awards. Logos from each of the teams participating in the National Championship tournament are silk-screen on the surface of the acrylic.
