WINTER PARK, Fla. (March 13, 2017) – After checking back into the USILA Division II Poll last week getting the nod at No. 18, the Rollins men’s lacrosse team continues to sit in the rankings this week, coming in at No. 20, organization officials announced Monday.

This marks the second straight week the Tars have been featured in the Top-20 in the regular season.

Rollins is one of four Sunshine State Conference schools featured on this week’s poll, with Tampa leading the way at No. 14.  Saint Leo and Lynn follow close behind at fifteenth and sixteenth, respectively.  Florida Tech and Florida Southern appear on this week’s poll as well, receiving votes.

The top three remains unchanged from last week, with Le Moyne, Limestone, and Merrimack earning the first through third slots, respectively.  Lindenwood makes the jump from seventh to fourth, while Mercyhurst climbs the ladder from eighth to fifth this week.  Rounding out the Top-10 are Belmont Abbey, Adelphi, Pace, Mount Olive, and NYIT.
