Women’s lacrosse remains at 3/4 in national polls

SALISBURY, Md. – After another undefeated week and its seventh-straight victory, the Salisbury University women's lacrosse team remained at No. 3 in the Lacrosse Magazine ranking and No. 4 in the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association poll, the organizations announced Monday.

The Sea Gulls are currently on a seven-game winning streak, including Capital Athletic Conference wins over Marymount (Va.) University and Frostburg State University last week. In the 15-3 victory over Marymount on Wednesday, March 30, senior Megan Wallenhorst notched seven points on two goals and five assists to lead Salisbury. On Saturday, April 2, Wallenhorst put on a repeat performance with seven points as the Gulls took down Frostburg State, 18-3.

The IWLCA poll had the top-six teams from last week retain their spots, with the Sea Gulls sitting at No. 4. The State University of New York at Cortland held strong at the top spot with all 20 first-place votes, while Middlebury College and the College of New Jersey remained at second and third in the country. Franklin & Marshall College held on to No. 5, and the University of Mary Washington and St. Mary's College of Maryland from the CAC each moved up five spots to No. 13 and No. 14 in the nation, respectively. Christopher Newport University landed at No. 15 in the poll, while York College of Pennsylvania moved to No. 17.

In the Lacrosse Magazine ranking, Salisbury remains at the No. 3 spot behind SUNY Cortland at No. 1, and Middlebury at No. 2. Rounding out the top five are Franklin and Marshall and TCNJ, and from the CAC, Mary Washington, Christopher Newport, St. Mary's, and York land at Nos. 14-17, respectively.

Salisbury will be in action tomorrow, Tuesday, April 5, when it travels to take on Christopher Newport in a top-15 showdown. That game is set for 5 p.m.
