The third week of the 2018-19 Northeast (New England/New York) D3 women’s ice hockey season is in the books, which means it is time to unveil our third poll of the season.

Elmira College remains the top team in our seven-state poll following back-to-back wins over Lebanon Valley College this past weekend. Since defeating Norwich University, which checked-in third overall, the Soaring Eagles have appeared unstoppable in their previous four match-ups.

Elmira will enjoy a short break before returning to the ice after Thanksgiving when they face Middlebury College on Saturday, November 24th. Middlebury, which secured the fourth position, will begin its season this Friday, November 16th when they visit Trinity College, which is one of our six teams on the rise this week.

Also joining our poll this week is Oswego State, which has enjoyed a successful start to their 2018-19 season with four wins. The Lakers face Cortland this weekend, including Friday for Pink the Rink.

D3 Lacrosse: Final Noontime Top 10 Men’s Lax Poll (Wednesday, May 30th)

NS LAX TOP 10 POLL

By NoontimeSports.com (@NoontimeSports) 

The 2018 NCAA Division 3 Men’s Lacrosse season officially concluded this past weekend with Wesleyan University winning its first-ever national title with an 8-6 win over Salisbury University at Gillette Stadium.

With the two-goal win, the Cardinals secured the top spot in our final Noontime Sports New England D3 Men’s Lacrosse Top 10 Poll. Wesleyan began the season as a top team in our poll, but was forced to share the top position with New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) foes Amherst College and Tufts University. The Jumbos secured the second position in our final poll, while the Mammoths slid into the third spot.

Springfield College, which captured this year’s New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) crown, checked-in fourth overall, while Williams College rounded out the top five, checking-in fifth overall.

Conn. College and Coast Guard Academy – two teams we watched more closely this season – secured the sixth and sevenths positions, respectively. We expect both teams to be back in the mix next spring, despite some key graduation departures.

As always, you can stay connected with @Noontime_Lax on Twitter for lacrosse news, notes, scores and more!

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.
