Tars Get Nod at 9th on IWLCA Division II Preseason Poll

Rollins Earns Spot on Preseason Poll for Eighth-Straight Season


WINTER PARK, Fla. (January 28, 2018) – The Rollins women's lacrosse team has been tabbed ninth on the 2019 Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Association's (IWLCA) Division II Preseason Coaches Poll, organization officials announced Monday.

Entering into their 12th season, this marks the eighth-straight season the Tars have earned a spot on the preseason rankings, and tenth consecutive season Rollins has received votes.

The reigning Division II National Champion Le Moyne claims the top spot this season, earning all 25 available first place votes.  The Dolphins earned a 22-1 record in 2018 as they captured the National Championship, marking their first in program history.  The Adelphi University Panthers checks in a No. 2, followed closely by the 2018 Runner-Up, Florida Southern in third.  The fourth and fifth spots are claimed by Lindenwood and West Chester, respectively.  East Stroudsburg, LIU Post, Regis, Rollins, and Florida Tech round out the top ten.

The Northeast 10 looks like one of the toughest conferences based on the pre-season poll, as Pace (#14), Merrimack (#16), New Haven (#20), and Bentley (#23) join Le Moyne and Adelphi to land six schools in the Top 25.  The Sunshine State Conference follows with four schools represented on the poll, with Florida Southern checking in at No. 3, Rollins earning the No. 9 spot, Florida Tech coming in at No. 10, and the University of Tampa getting the nod at No. 19.  The PSAC's Mercyhurst (#15), and Lock Haven (#21) join West Chester and ESU to also land four in the Top 25.
