Tar Heels Lead Conference In IWLCA Pre-Season Coaches Poll

Six ACC women’s lacrosse teams populate the Top 25 of the the IWLCA Pre-Season Coaches Poll. The Tar Heels hold the top spot among conference competitors.

Last year’s championship contender Boston College debuts in the top 10 in the rankings. Out of the five teams that were in last year’s NCAA playoffs only Louisville isn’t present in the 2018 pre-season poll.

The ACC finished the season with six teams among the IWLCA Top 20. This year the polling has been expanded to the Top 25 to accommodate the growth of the sport at the college level.

Maryland, last year’s national champions, start off the 2018 campaign ranked at #1 by the coaches. The Terps pulled in 24 of 25 First Place Votes with Stony Brook receiving one vote.
