D3 Lacrosse: Noontime Sports Men’s Lacrosse Top 10 (Monday, March 26th)

NS LAX TOP 10 POLL

By NoontimeSports.com (@NoontimeSports) 

It’s Monday, which means it is time for a brand new New England D3 Men’s Lacrosse Top 10 Poll, which finds Amherst College in the top position followed by Tufts University and Wesleyan University. The Mammoths secured the top spot for the second-straight week with convincing wins over Endicott College and Hamilton College. This week, Amherst will face-off against both Middlebury College and Springfield College.

Tufts scored a pair of weekend victories, including an exciting overtime win on Sunday against SUNY Cortland, while Wesleyan secured a pair of non-conference wins over Roanoke and Skidmore. The Cardinals will cap their initial month of play in Maine this Saturday, March 31 when they take on Colby College at 1 p.m.

Coast Guard Academy was this week’s biggest mover as they leaped three spots to the fifth position, while Springfield College moved up one spot to the sixth position. Both teams are scheduled to face-off next month.

Clark University is the newest member of the poll – the Cougars have been idle since their 8-7 win over Western New England last weekend, but return to the field this week with a pair of road contests against Bowdoin College and Coast Guard Academy.
