Women's Lacrosse Climbs to No. 6 in the Latest IWLCA Coaches Poll

TAMPA, Fla. – In the IWLCA Division II Coaches poll announced on Monday, April 1, the University of Tampa women's lacrosse program was tabbed the No. 6 best team in the nation. Tampa earns this rank after UPSETTING the previously ranked No. 3 Florida Southern College Moccasins by a final score of 16-14. This is the highest IWLCA rank for the Spartans in program history. 

Le Moyne College (9-0) took the top spot in the Division II Coaches Poll with all 25 first-place votes, but the remainder of the top five was shaken after the second, third, and fourth-ranked teams suffered losses last week. Rollins (10-0) surged into the second spot, Adelphi (8-1) dropped to third, Lindenwood (10-0) improved to fourth, and LIU Post (8-2) entered the top five for the first time in 2019 on the strength of their 10-9 win over Adelphi last Saturday. Tampa (8-2) jumped four spots after they beat Florida Southern, 16-14, to land at #6. West Chester (7-2), Florida Southern (9-2), East Stroudsburg (8-2), and Regis (1-0) round out the top ten.

The Top-25 action begins on Tuesday this week, when #17 Assumption hosts #1 Le Moyne, #16 Pace welcomes New Haven (#T-19) to campus, and #15 Mercy visits West Chester (#7), and the #2 ranked Rollins squad visits #8 Florida Southern on Wednesday. The weekend's game includes #18 Merrimack at Adelphi, #5 LIU Post at Mercy, and Colorado Mesa (#T-12) at #10 Regis.
