Women's Lacrosse Comes in at No. 19 in Final Poll

GRAND LAKE, Colo. - After establishing itself as a mainstay in the national rankings in 2018, the University of Tampa women's lacrosse team concluded the season as the No. 19 team in NCAA Division II, as announced by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) in its final poll.

Le Moyne College (22-1) collected all 25 first-place votes and assumes the top spot in the final Division II Coaches Poll of the 2018 season. The Dolphins claimed their first NCAA Division II Championship on May 20, defeating Florida Southern College by a score of 16-11, in a game played at the Naimoli Family Athletic and Intramural Complex on the campus of UT. The Mocs (21-2) finish the season in the second position, followed by Adelphi (19-3) at third, Lindenwood (19-1) in fourth, and East Stroudsburg (15-4) at number five.

Head coach Kelly Gallagher's squad had a school record in wins this season as it finished the year at 12-6. The Spartan schedule included matchups with eight nationally-ranked opponents, including wins over No. 11 Rollins College and No. 23 McKendree College. The Spartans also earned an invite to the Sunshine State Conference tournament, which featured four nationally-ranked teams.

Florida Tech (17-3) locked down the number six spot. They are followed by Regis (17-5) in seventh, West Chester (19-1) in eighth, and Limestone (18-3) in ninth. LIU Post (14-6) rounds out the top ten in the final poll.
