Tars Continue to Climb Weekly Rankings

IWLCA Ranks Rollins at Ninth, NIKE/US Lacrosse Ranks Tars Tenth


WINTER PARK, Fla. (March 26, 2018) – After toppling then sixth-ranked Limestone last week and extending their winning streak to nine, the Rollins women's lacrosse team climbs two spots to ninth on this week's IWLCA Division II Coaches Poll, organization officials announced Monday.  The ninth-place nod marks the highest ranking for the Tars this season.

The Tars, who own a record of 10-2 and have won the last nine games, climb two positions after taking down then sixth-ranked Limestone by a score of 9-7 on Friday evening in Gaffney, S.C.  After collecting 23 of a possible 25 first-place votes, Florida Southern (10-0) took the top spot in the standings once again this week. The top five teams remain unchanged as Adelphi (7-1) sits in second, Lindenwood (11-0) is third, Le Moyne (7-0) is ranked fourth, and Florida Tech stays at No. 5 despite a 15-11 loss to Florida Southern over the weekend. LIU Post (6-2) switched spots with Limestone (8-2) after the Saints fell to to the Tars.  Indianapolis (6-1) climbed one position to take the eighth spot, while New Haven (3-3) fell from the Top-10 to land at No. 14 following a loss to Merrimack (5-3).  Mercy (6-1) holds onto their position from last week to round out this week's Top-10.  

Merrimack had the biggest jump this week, improving six spots from No. 21 to No. 15, and Bentley (4-1) is the only newcomer to the poll this week, landing at No. 24.

The Sunshine State Conference is well represented once again this week, with Florida Southern (No. 1), Florida Tech (No. 5), Rollins (No. 9), and Tampa (No. 17) all earning a nod on this weeks' standings.

There are several Top-25 games to watch this week, including Tampa (No. 17) at top-ranked Florida Southern on Tuesday, Pace (No. 11) at Adelphi (No. 2), New Haven (No. 14) at Le Moyne (No. 4), and East Stroudsburg (No. 21) at West Chester (No. 13) on Wednesday, and Grand Valley State (No. 16) against Indianapolis (No. 8) on Thursday. The weekend's games include Stonehill at LIU Post (No. 6) and West Chester at No. 20 Mercyhurst.

Rollins  jumps from 16th to tenth on the NIKE/US Lacrosse Division II Top 20 this week, marking the biggest jump of the week.  Florida Southern, Lindenwood, Adelphi, Le Moyne, and Florida Tech remain unchanged from last week, checking in at first through fifth, respectively.  West Chester, Mercy, and Indianapolis each climb one spot to sit sixth through eighth, while LIU Post jumps from 11th to ninth, and the Tars round out the Top-10.  Limestone makes the biggest drop, falling from sixth to 11th after losing to the Tars.

Rollins returns home for their next game, hosting first year program Palm Beach Atlantic on Saturday, March 31.  Game time against the Sailfish is set for 5:00 p.m.  Fans who are unable to attend the game will be able to follow all of the action live on the Tars Sports Network on RollinsSports.com, as well as with live stats on TarsStats.com.
