    CaseyPowellLacrosse.com D-I Top 20 for March 2

    Virginia's win over Syracuse Friday night in front of nearly 17,000 lacrosse fans, even though it was by the slimmest of margins, was all our voters were looking for to settle the question of who should be #1. UVa secured 16 first-place votes, while #2 Syracuse still has one believer. North Carolina, while remaining at #3, actually gained ground on the two leaders as they were 44 points out of second place last week, but now trail the Orange by only ten.

    Two of the biggest movers both come from the surprise game of the weekend, as Princeton moved up six spots, from #12 to #6, and Johns Hopkins tumbled from #4 to #9. Also falling five places this week is Georgetown, upset victims of St. Johns, and Colgate, losers of three on a southern swing, albeit to higher ranked teams. On the upside, Harvard jumped from #20 to a tie at #14 with Navy after building on their upset of Duke with a convincing win at Stony Brook. Also on the move, Denver, Loyola, Hofstra, UMBC, and Cornell.

    Salisbury (2-0) remains in the top spot of the CaseyPowellLacrosse.com / JustLacrosse.com Division III Top 20 after their 18-6 victory over Lynchburg Saturday, allowing Ithaca to jump ahead of the Hornets this week.

    And Union College of Schenectady finally garnered enough votes to claim a tie with Nazareth at #20. Union opens their season against Geneseo March 3rd, to be played at Marcellus High School southwest of Syracuse.

    CaseyPowellLacrosse.com D-I Top 20 for February 23

    Some upsets, some close games, and a few blowouts were cause for a lot of movement in the CaseyPowellLacrosse.com / JustLacrosse.com Division I Top 20 Poll for February 23rd. Syracuse and Virginia occupy the top two spots once again, though Syracuse picked up four more First Place votes as those two teams prepare to meet Friday night in the Dome.

    The biggest movers to the upside were Hofstra, up four spots, while North Carolina and Georgetown edge up two places. On the downside, Maryland drops three from #3 into a tie with Cornell at #6, and Albany's loss to Denver cost them five spots, dropping them into 19th.

    Replacing Army in the Top 20 after their 17-6 loss to SU is Harvard, pulling off the huge 9-6 upset over #8 Duke.

    CaseyPowellLacrosse.com D-III Top 20 for February 17

    Teams continue to jockey for position as the season crawls to a start, and it was no surprise when #1 Salisbury buried the University of Scranton 24-6 Sunday. It will take a couple of weeks before everyone has their season openers, so news stories and scrimmage reports will be the moving force behind the rankings. This week Nazareth bumps Bowdoin from the Top 20.

    CaseyPowellLacrosse.com D-I Top 20 for February 16

    Army claws its way into the CaseyPowellLacrosse.com/JustLacrosse.com Division I Top 20 Poll for February 16th with its thumping of VMI, the 700th victory for the program. Bucknell made room for the Cadets as they fall from the Top 20. Defending national champion Syracuse remains on top, picking up an extra first-place vote after their dominating performance over Providence Sunday. Virginia remains at #2, followed by Maryland and Johns Hopkins. Cornell and North Carolina swap spots at 6/5, and Ohio State and Loyola played well enough in close losses to jump over idle Hofstra.
