    CaseyPowellLacrosse.com D-I Top 20 for May 5th, 2009

    Syracuse remains the #1 team in the CaseyPowellLacrosse.com / JustLacrosse.com Division I poll as they enter post-season play as the #2 seed. The Orange received 8 first place votes, while #3 Notre Dame garnered 3, and #4 Virginia grabbed a couple of their own to go with their #1 seed in the Tournament. Duke holds the #2 spot, and the rest of the top fourteen teams remain pretty much the same as last week.

    UMass moves up three spots to #15 after winning the ECAC title and the automatic qualifier that goes with it. Villanova's upsets of Hofstra and Towson in the Colonial Athletic Conference Tournament earned them a #18 poll position, and a date with Virginia.

    Our poll is voted on by a group of highly respected and knowledgeable individuals from the upstate lacrosse community. Links to our Pre-season Poll, as well as collective look at our group of voters can be found at our Poll Archives page.

    This Saturday evening, the West Genesee / Camillus Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2009 will be inducted, and the lacrosse program has a few people included who have have been a big help over the years.

    Coach Deegan: Coach Messere's right hand man.The man who has been the mastermind of the defensive units for WG. Coach Deegan was also inducted this past winter into the Upstate NY lacrosse Hall of Fame.

    Beth Stewart: Beth has been at every sporting event for as long as anyone can remember. Her love of WG sports is unparalleled. Anyone who has worked along side Beth in the concession stand knows that all too well.

    George & Rose Surace: If you could make a list of West Genny lacrosse game where neither of them have shown up, it would be very short. That includes the NYS Championship games in Long island. Their presence is not only for the lacrosse team but also at many other WG games both boys and girls. They are the ultimate Wildcat Fans!

    The induction will take place at the Camillus Town Hall starting at 7:00PM Saturday, May 2nd. If have the time to attend, it will be a great event that the West Genesee and Camillus residents will be very proud of.

    Roanoke Finishes Climb to #1

    After beginning the regular season holding down the #12 position in the CaseyPowellLacrosse.com / JustLacrosse.com Division III Top 20, the Roanoke Maroons have completed a steady climb, never falling back, to sit alone at #1. The undefeated Maroons take over after Stevenson fell in their rematch with Salisbury in the CAC Championship Game. The Mustangs fall to #3, just one spot ahead of the Seas Gulls who traded in a tie for 12th for a tie at #4 with Ithaca.

    Haverford moves up three to #11 on a 7-game winning streak, while Denison is riding a 9-game win streak and also climbs three, sitting in a tie at #12.

    Making room for those advancers, Western New England and Cabrini each fall three spots, despite recent wins. And entering the poll this week, Lynchburg, Trinity, and Stevens.
