After CAC semifinal win, Sea Gulls stay at No. 2 in weekly rankings

BALTIMORE - The Salisbury University men's lacrosse team stayed put at No. 2 in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Division III coaches' poll and the Lacrosse Magazine rankings, the organizations announced on Monday.

The Sea Gulls kept hold of their spots after defeating Frostburg State University, 12-6, on Saturday in a Capital Athletic Conference tournament semifinal game.

There was no movement in the top-five spots of either poll, this week, with Rochester Institute of Technology staying at No. 1 in the USILA poll with 400 points and all 20 first-place votes.

With Salisbury earning 378 points for the No. 2 spot, No. 3 Stevenson University (348 points), No. 4 Denison University (322 points), and No. 5 Cabrini College (309 points), rounding out the top five in the USILA poll.

RIT held on at No. 1 in the Lacrosse Magazine rankings, while No. 3 Denison, No. 4 Washington (Md.) College, and No. 5 Stevenson also didn't move to make up the top-five rankings.

Salisbury will next be in action in the CAC championship game on Saturday, hosting York College of Pennsylvania at Sea Gull Stadium; with the opening faceoff set for 2 p.m., the Sea Gulls look to take home their 18th CAC championship.
