Light Schedule Yields Little Movement in WCLA Coaches Polls

Light Schedule Yields Little Movement in WCLA Coaches Polls

With limited games by ranked teams in the past week, there were minimal changes in the newest WCLA (Women’s Collegiate Lacrosse Associates) Division I and II coaches polls, released today. 

Michigan Club and Denver Club maintained their No. 1 positions. Michigan, which has not played since February 18, does not return to action until March 24. Denver Club recorded an 18-1 win over Colorado School of Mines in its only contest.

Colorado Club and Cal Poly were the biggest movers in this week’s Division I poll, climbing three spots each after registering wins against ranked opponents. Colorado moved into a tie at No. 3 following its 10-6 win over No. 10 Colorado State, while Cal Poly climbed to No. 5 after defeating No. 9 UCLA, 14-13.

In total, six of the top eight teams in Division I and nine of the top 10 in Division II were idle this past week. Despite being among those that played no games, Providence jumped three spots to No. 7 in the Division II poll. 

There were no newcomers in the Division I ranking, while No. 13 St. Thomas, No. 19 Cortland Club, and No. 20 Dayton joined the Division II ranking for the first time this season.

The WCLA features 82 Division I teams and 149 Division II teams that compete under the US Lacrosse umbrella. The 2018 season will conclude with the US Lacrosse WCLA D-I and D-II national championships in Round Rock, Texas, May 9-12.
