It’s Monday, which means it is time for a brand new New England D3 Men’s Lacrosse Top 10 Poll.
Amherst College secured the top spot yet again – the Mammoths began the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Tournament with an impressive win over ninth-ranked Bowdoin College. Amherst will take on second-ranked Tufts University this Saturday, May 5th in the conference semifinals, while third-ranked Wesleyan University will face-off against fourth-ranked Williams College. The winners of both semifinal match-ups will meet the following day – Sunday, May 6th – in the NESCAC championship with the winner securing the conference’s automatic qualifier for the upcoming NCAA Tournament.
Coast Guard Academy moved up two spots this week after finishing its regular season with a solid win over Babson College. The Beavers remained the 10th best team in the region for the second-straight week. Coast Guard will be the top seed in this week’s New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Tournament.
