Amazingly, the ACC lacrosse season is already a few weeks old.
The Inside Lacrosse poll has Virginia #1, receiving 19 of the 20 first place votes. Maryland is #4, Syracuse is #6, North Carolina is #8, and Duke is #9. The USILA Coaches Poll is the same, except that Virginia has all 9 first place votes and Duke is ranked #11.
Recap of Last Week:
Saturday, March 3, 2012
Maryland 10, Duke 7. “Senior Drew Snider had a hat trick to lead the No. 5 Maryland men’s lacrosse team to at 10-7 victory over No. 8 Duke in front of 4,137 at Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium Saturday afternoon.”
Lehigh 9, North Carolina 8. “Lehigh outscored North Carolina 5-0 over a span of 25:11 from the second through fourth quarters and went on to beat the fourth-ranked Tar Heels 9-8 at Fetzer Field Saturday night. The loss was the first for the Tar Heels against an unranked team at Fetzer Field since March 5, 2004 when Navy downed Carolina 9-8 in overtime.”

The Confidential’s ACC Lacrosse Rankings:
1. Virginia (6-0). Virginia has been simply dominant this year.
2. Syracuse (2-1). Syracuse tested Virginia for a significant time, before ultimately falling.
3. Maryland (3-1). Despite the loss to UMBC, Maryland did beat Duke in a conference matchup.
4. North Carolina (4-2). North Carolina’s losses to Lehigh and Penn were disappointments.
5. Duke (3-2). No shame in losing to Maryland. But that’s two losses now for Duke.
