Salisbury remains at No. 7 in both national polls

SALISBURY, Md. – After earning a 14-5 non-conference win over Washington and Lee University at Sea Gull Stadium last Saturday, the Salisbury University women's lacrosse team remains the No. 7 team in the nation, according to the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association and the Lacrosse Magazine poll, the organizations announced Monday.

The top-eight teams remain the same in the IWLCA poll, with State University of New York at Cortland remaining at the top spot with all 20 first-place votes and 400 points, while Trinity (Conn.) College is still the No. 2 team in the nation, accumulating 377 points. Franklin and Marshall College (362), Middlebury College (338), and the College of New Jersey (310) round out the top-five, and Gettysburg College sits just ahead of Salisbury in the sixth spot with 298 points.

Two Capital Athletic Conference opponents are still in the top-20 poll, with York College of Pennsylvania (257) taking the eighth spot and the University of Mary Washington (94) sitting at No. 16 in the nation.

Once again, the top-four teams in the Lacrosse Magazine ranking are a mirror image of the IWLCA poll, while Gettysburg sits at No. 5 and TCNJ is at No. 6. York (Pa.) is No. 8 in the ranking, and Mary Washington is No. 17. Also joining Salisbury from the CAC in the ranking is St. Mary's College of Maryland at No. 18.

The Sea Gulls used a balanced offensive effort to take down Washington and Lee last Saturday, as nine different players appeared in the scoring column, including three goals each from junior Gabbi Nieves and sophomore Allie Hynson.

Salisbury will host Gettysburg in a top-10 battle at Sea Gull Stadium on Wednesday, March 7. The first draw is set for 3:30 p.m.
