Sea Gulls hold No.1 in IWLCA and Lacrosse Magazine rankings

BALTIMORE – The Salisbury University women's lacrosse team remained at the top of the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association poll and Lacrosse Magazine ranking, the organizations announced Monday.

The Sea Gulls (4-0) defeated then-No. 19 Washington and Lee University, 11-9, on Saturday for their lone victory of the week. Juniors Kate Haker and Shelby Nemecek paced the offense with three goals apiece, while senior Ashton Wheatley recorded the win in goal, making seven saves through 60 minutes of play.

In the IWLCA poll, Salisbury earned 380 first-place votes, as the No. 3 State University of New York at Cortland earned the other 20 votes. Trinity (Conn.) College and Middlebury College sit in second and third, respectively, as Franklin & Marshall College closes out the top five.

The top five are identical in the Lacrosse Magazine ranking; the only difference is Cortland jumped Middlebury for the No. 3 spot.

The women are back in action Saturday, March 15, as they open conference play against No. 10 York College of Pennsylvania. The game is set to begin at 12 p.m. on Kinsley Field.
