UALBANY MEN'S LACROSSE RANKED IN USILA NATIONAL TOP 20 FOR FIRST TIME

     Baltimore, Md. – University at Albany’s men lacrosse team is No. 14 in this week’s GEICO/STX USILA national coaches poll. The Great Danes, who are off to a 5-2 start with three wins against ranked teams, make their first-ever appearance as a Division I program in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association rankings. UAlbany is also ranked 18th in the latest Inside Lacrosse Media Poll.

     "One of our goals when I came here was to not only get in the top 20, but be consistently among those teams," said UAlbany coach Scott Marr, whose squad faces the nation’s top-ranked team Johns Hopkins on Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. "This is a reward for all the players’ efforts, but now we have to continue to work to stay there."

     UAlbany has won three straight games, including last week’s victories over No. 14 Stony Brook and No. 19 Dartmouth. John Hopkins, last year’s national runner-up, improved to 6-0 overall with last Saturday’s 7-5 victory over North Carolina. The Blue Jays, who have been the No. 1 team since the preseason, own the nation’s longest home win streak with 30 consecutive victories at Homewood Field dating back to April 3, 2001.
