Tars Earn Recognition on Both USILA Coaches Poll, As Well As NIKE/US Lacrosse Top 20


WINTER PARK, Fla. (April 9, 2018) – After almost toppling sixth-ranked Saint Leo, and earning a 16-11 win over a Florida Southern squad that checked in at No. 20 last week on the NIKE/US Lacrosse Division II Top 20, the Rollins men's lacrosse team has received votes on both rankings this week.

The Tars once again receive votes on the USILA Division II Men's Coaches Poll, marking the fifth time this season they have received recognition on the Coaches Poll.  The top six remain the same from last week's rankings, with Le Moyne, Merrimack, Lenoir-Rhyne, Seton Hill, Adelphi, and Saint Leo checking in at first through sixth, respectively.  Lake Erie makes the jump from tenth to seventh, while Tampa climbs one spot to No. 8.  Pace drops one position to ninth this week, while Mercy claims the No. 10 spot, climbing two positions from 12th last week.  Limestone makes the biggest drop, falling from seventh to 12th.

The Sunshine State Conference sees plenty of representation on this week's standings, led by Saint Leo in the sixth slot.  Tampa checks in at No. 8, followed by Florida Tech in 15th.  Both Florida Southern and Rollins received votes on this week's poll.

The Tars also receive votes on the NIKE/US Lacrosse Division II Top 20 this week, marking the tenth straight time the Tars have earned recognition on the NIKE/USL Top 20, and the eighth time this season Rollins has received votes.  Rollins also earned a No. 20 nod in week six (03/19/18), as well as a No. 17 ranking in week seven (03/26/18).

Rollins returns to action on Wednesday, April 11, when they host the University of Tampa at Cahall-Sandspur Field in Sunshine State Conference action.  Game time against the Spartans is set for 7 p.m.  Fans who are unable to support the Tars in person can follow all of the action live on the Tars Sports Network, as well as with live stats on TarsStats.com.
