It’s Monday, which means it is time for a brand new New England D3 Men’s Lacrosse Top 10 Poll.
Amherst College remains the top team in New England for the second-straight week – this past weekend, the Mammoths scored an impressive win over Bates College, which is currently ‘On the Rise’ this week. The Mammoths appear to be the front-runner for the top seed in the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) – we will know more about what teams are in and where they will be headed later this week.
Tufts University and Wesleyan University remain the second and third best teams in the region, while Williams College moved up four spots following an impressive and important win over Bowdoin College this past weekend.
Williams has been an interesting team to watch this spring, but the question we have is can their late season momentum continue over the next few weeks in the NESCAC Tournament?
Finally, Endicott College returns to our ‘On the Rise’ section – don’t be fooled by the Gulls’ overall record, they have provided some serious challenges to teams on both lists this season. They will be a fun team to follow in the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) Tournament, which begins this Saturday, April 28th.
