This week’s United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) poll was released yesterday and a few local teams earned spots in the Division II and III polls.
* Merrimack College (6-1, 5-0 NE-10) – For the second week in a row, the Warriors remain the fourth best team in Division II. They haven’t lost since their season opener against Limestone and will be on the field this evening when they host Bentley University for a 7 p.m. face-off. Corey Lunney continues to lead the Blue and Gold with 32 points (26 goals, six assists), while Greg Melaugh has registered 25 points (21 goals, four assists).
* Tufts University (8-2, 4-2 NESCAC) – The Jumbos winning streak extended to eight on Sunday as they defeated Middlebury College in Medford. Their slate doesn’t get easier as they’ll travel to Endicott College this evening for a big non-conference match. The Jumbos defeated the Gulls last year, 11-5. Cole Bailey was named the NESCAC Men’s Lacrosse Player of the Week on Monday and currently leads the Powder Blue and White with 31 points (14 goals, 17 assists).
