Welcome to April, New England D3 Lacrosse fans and friends!
Once again, Amherst College and Tufts University remain our top teams in our six-state region, while Wesleyan University, Williams College, and Bates College remain locked in the third, fourth, and fifth positions, respectively. All five teams have scored some important conference wins, and will continue to be squads to watch this month.
Despite falling to Amherst this past weekend, Middlebury College remains our sixth best team in New England followed by Western New England and Coast Guard Academy. Both teams moved-up this week, thanks to conference wins.
Bowdoin College and Endicott College rounded out our poll, checking in ninth and tenth, respectively. The two teams met last week with the Polar Bears needing an extra session to edge the Gulls, 8-7. Endicott rebounded with a conference win, while the Polar Bears saw its momentum vanish with a setback to Trinity College.
With a win over the Polar Bears, the Bantams joined our ‘Teams on the Rise,’ which includes two teams from the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) with Babson College and Clark University.
Our weekly lacrosse polls are powered by our friends from Zelos Athletics, who are ready to get you set for a brand new lacrosse season with their FusionSport technology.
