IWLCA Lacrosse Top 20
The final week of ACC regular season action is upon us and North Carolina leads ACC women’s teams in the IWLCA Lacrosse Top 20.
The Tar Heels fell one spot following an upset at the hands of Syracuse, 13-11 in OT. The previous week it took an overtime for the Orange to knock off Virginia Tech, 12-11.
The win over North Carolina was parlayed into a five position move for the Orange in the rankings.
Notre Dame holds steady in this week’s poll following a 13-9 win over the Hokies last week.
Virginia bumped off unranked Louisville 11-7 and moved up one spot.
Boston College eases up one notch in the rankings trading places with Virginia Tech who drops one.
Duke comes off a see-saw week and hold steady at twenty. The Blue Devils fell to #15 Northwestern 12-10, then handed unranked Presbyterian a 21-1 thrashing to make up for the loss.
