WestConn competed in a LEC only schedule this spring after losing the entire 2020 season to COVID. Health and saftey precautions made it very diffcult to be at the top of their games, but it was neccessary for the saftey of the sudent/athletes. Of 15 games the squad only won 2, but over Nationally ranked teams in UMASS Boston and S. Maine. Coach Susi was out for almost the entire season after having neck surgery in mid March, but the Assistant Coaches (Chris Arconti, Dan Krot, Tyler Robertson and CJ Angelo) did an outstanding job keeping the program afloat in Susi's absence. Also Trainer Pete Algarin 's help was oustanding. Coach Susi did return for the final 5 games.
Following the unexpected end to the 2020 season, it was time for the second All-Decade team of the century. Three teams and honorable mentions were assembled from the list of All-Americans, All-Region and record setting players who played at least two years in the decade. Following the blueprint in compiling the previous All-Decade team, eighty-two players were selected for the 2010's All-Decade team
