WINTER PARK, Fla. (April 10, 2017) – After ascending to their highest ranking of the season last week, the Rollins women’s lacrosse team continues to get the nod at No. 5 on the IWLCA DII Poll, organization officials announced Monday.  The Tars’ fifth-place ranking on the Week Seven poll marks the second consecutive week Rollins has earned the nod at No. 5.

The Tars have a challenging game on the horizon and will square up against defending National Champion and No. 4 Florida Southern on Tuesday evening at Bryant Stadium in Lakeland, Fla.  Other notable contests this week include Adelphi hosting No. 12 New Haven on Wednesday, followed by a game against No. 6 LIU Post on Satuday.  Eleventh-ranked West Chester visits No. 19 Lock Haven on Wednesday, and No. 2 Lindenwood will face No. 7 Limestone on Saturday.

The Top 15 from the Week Six poll remains the same, led by Adelphi at No. 1 with an unbeaten record of 10-0.  The Panthers received 16 first place votes on this week’s standings.  Lindenwood checks in at No. 2, receiving three first place votes and holding onto an overall record of 14-0.  Le Moyne, who enters into the week with a record of 10-0, earns the No. 3 slot as well as one first place vote.

Sunshine State Conference rivals Florida Southern and Rollins come in at fourth and fifth, respectively, followed by LIU Post, Limestone, and Queens (N.C.) at sixth through eighth.  Fellow SSC member Florida Tech gets the nod once again at No. 9, while Mercyhurst claims the No. 10 slot.

The only movement on this week’s poll is some shuffling amongst the teams in the 16th through 20th positions.  Mercy climbs one position to 16th this week, while Stonehill jumps two positions to No. 17.  Indiana (Pa.) also climbs to spots, checking in at No. 18, Lock Haven makes the biggest move this week, dropping three spots to 19th.  Seton Hill also falls in the rankings, dropping two positions and rounding out the poll at No. 20.  Receiving votes this week is East Stroudsburg, who own a record of 9-2 on the season.
