The Georgetown Hoyas men's lacrosse team represents Georgetown University in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I college lacrosse. The coach is currently Kevin Warne, who is in his first season at that position. The team plays its home games at Multi-Sport Field. Georgetown previously competed in the old Big East Conference.[2] The new Big East sponsors lacrosse. From 2000–2010, they were a member of the ECAC Lacrosse League and before that, they competed as independents.[3]

The Hoyas appeared in their first NCAA tournament in 1997, losing 14–10 to Maryland. Georgetown scored its first tournament victory in 1998, defeating UMBC, 9–8. The only time they ever advanced past the quarterfinals of the tournament came in 1999[3] as they defeated Notre Dame and Duke before losing to Syracuse in the semifinals. From 1997–2007, they made the tournament every season and from 2002–2007, they made the quarterfinals every season. However, since 2007, they have failed to return to the tournament.
