On Saturday, the Gulls opened up CAC play with a contest at No. 8 York College of Pennsylvania, and Salisbury came through with an 8-6 road victory over the Spartans.

State University of New York at Cortland holds the No. 1 spot and all 20 first-place votes in the IWLCA poll, while Franklin & Marshall College jumped Trinity (Conn.) College for the No. 2 spot. Trinity sits at No. 3, and Middlebury College and Gettysburg College round out the top five. Joining Salisbury in the top-20 poll from the Capital Athletic Conference is York which is still ranked eighth in the nation, while the University of Mary Washington moved up a spot to No. 15.

The Lacrosse Magazine ranking has SUNY Cortland at the top spot with Trinity in second and Franklin & Marshall at third in the country. Middlebury is ranked fourth in the poll, while Gettysburg took the final spot in the top five. The ranking has Mary Washington at No. 16 in the nation and St. Mary's College of Maryland at No. 17.
