GRAND LAKE, Colo. – Following a season-opening 19-5 win over Stevenson University, the Salisbury University women's lacrosse team remains at No. 2 in this week's Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association Top 20 poll, the organization announced Tuesday.
The top five remained the same as last week, with Trinity (Conn.) College remaining atop the rankings, with 19 first-place votes and 396 points in total. Despite not having yet played their first contest, the Bantams picked up another first-place vote since the preseason poll was released three weeks ago.
That first-place vote vote came at the expense of Salisbury (1-0), which kept one first-place vote and had 378 points. The Sea Gulls distanced themselves slightly from the squad they will face in two weeks, the State University of New York at Cortland. The Red Dragons were again at No. 3, with 358 points.
After defeating the University of Mary Washington, Gettysburg College improved its standing in the poll while remaining at No. 4. The Bullets picked up 13 points in the standings, giving them 338 points this week. That created some space between them and the No. 5 team, Middlebury College, which received 318 points.
The Capital Athletic Conference again placed three member institutions in the top 20. Following Salisbury is York (Pa.) College at No. 9, and Mary Washington at No. 14.
The Sea Gulls are next in action this Saturday, traveling to Washington D.C., to face Catholic University of America, which is ranked No. 10. That contest is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. The women's lacrosse team returns to Sea Gull Stadium on Sunday, March 17, hosting the State University of New York at Brockport. That contest is slated to begin at 1 p.m.
