GRAND LAKE, Colo. – Concluding another successful season with the program's third title in five years, the Salisbury University women's lacrosse team finds itself back at the top of the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association ranking, the organization announced on Tuesday in its final Division III poll.
The Sea Gulls (23-1) defended the national title that they won in 2013 with another this season, defeating No. 2 Trinity (Conn.) College, 9-6, for the second-consecutive year. The State University of New York at Cortland finished No. 3 with a 22-1 record, after falling for the first time all season, in the national semifinals to Trinity. Amherst College came in at No. 4, making it to the final four and being defeated by the Sea Gulls, 8-4. Rounding out the top five is Gettysburg College, who fell just short of championship weekend on its own turf, being defeated by the Bantams in the regional finals.
