Salisbury women’s lacrosse picked to win 16th CAC title in 2016

YORK, Pa. – Less than a week away from its season opener, the nationally-ranked No. 9 Salisbury University women's lacrosse team has been picked to hoist the Capital Athletic Conference championship at the end of the season, as voted by the conference's women's lacrosse coaches, the league announced on Thursday.

The Sea Gulls have won 13-straight CAC championships under Head Coach Jim Nestor, including a 6-3 victory over York College of Pennsylvania last season.

Salisbury, which has won 113 conference games in a row, including postseason play, was unanimously picked to finish first in the conference, accumulating 64 points and eight first-place votes.

Coming in behind the Gulls was York (Pa.), notching 57 points and the remaining first-place vote. Christopher Newport University and the University of Mary Washington tied for third in the voting, as both received 45 points, while St. Mary's College of Maryland sits at the five spot, tallying 38 points.

Frostburg State University (29), Marymount (Va.) University (22), Wesley College (16), and Southern Virginia University (8), rounded out the rest of the poll.

The Sea Gulls take the field for the first time this season on Tuesday, February 16, when they play host to Roanoke College in a non-conference matchup. That game is set for 3 p.m.
