SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University men's lacrosse team was ranked No. 2 by both the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association coaches' poll and the Laxmagazine.com rankings, as announced by the organizations on Monday.
Both polls this week showed no movement of their respective top-five teams.
Last week the Sea Gulls (5-0) went 1-0 with an overtime victory over No. 9 Ohio Wesleyan. With 1:50 minutes remaining in the first overtime period, Thomas Cirillo netted the game winner off a James Burton feed to seal the victory for the Gulls.
In the USILA poll, Salisbury is at No. 2 with 320 points and four of the 17 first-place votes that were placed. Sitting in the top spot is Tufts University with 335 points and picking up the other 13 first-place votes. The other teams in the top five are Rochester Institute of Technology with 311 points and Amherst College with 280 points, while Gettysburg College is in fifth with 256 points.
The Capital Athletic Conference teams had a strong week, and the USILA poll reflected it as York College of Pennsylvania moved up to No. 11 from No. 20, and Frostburg State University enters the poll at No. 18.
In the Laxmagzine.com rankings, Salisbury's win over Ohio Wesleyan keeps it at No. 2. Atop the poll is Tufts, following Salisbury at No. 2. Rounding out the top five is RIT, Amherst, and Middlebury College.
Salisbury returns to action this weekend when it goes on the road to take on No. 19 Stevenson University on Wednesday, March 9. That game is slated to begin at 7 p.m.
