SALISBURY, Md. – With a victory over then-No. 12 York College of Pennsylvania this past week, the Salisbury University women's lacrosse team remained in the top 20 in the latest rankings released by Lacrosse Magazine and the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association, the organizations announced Monday.
The Sea Gulls (2-2, 1-0 CAC) jumped out to an early lead in the first half against Capital Athletic Conference foe YCP this past Saturday, off a game-high four goals from sophomore Hannah Young, handing the Spartans their second loss of the season with a 10-7 decision.
Coming in at No. 16 last week in the IWLCA poll, Salisbury moved up two spots to No. 14, receiving 142 points. In the Lacrosse Magazine ranking, the Gulls held at No. 13 again this week.
The CAC is still well represented in the rankings, with the Spartans coming in at No. 16 in IWLCA's poll and No. 15 in Lacrosse Magazine's ranking. The University of Mary Washington is receiving votes in both polls, while St. Mary's College of Maryland is earning votes in the coaches' poll.
The top two spots interchange in both polls, as Franklin and Marshall College holds No. 1 in the IWLCA poll, and the State University of New York at Cortland maintains the top spot in the Lacrosse Magazine ranking.
Salisbury takes the field on Tuesday, March 17 for its next contest, as the State University of New York at Brockport travels to Sea Gull Stadium for a non-conference tilt. First draw is set for 2 p.m.
