The coaches have voted and, much like Lacrosse Magazine and Inside Lacrosse, defending champion Stevenson are tops. RIT comes in at No. 2 in yet another poll. Cortland, Tufts and Salisbury round out the rest of the top five.
The results of this are no surprise. Stevenson and RIT both return a ton of firepower from last year’s championship teams and are expected to be the top teams in their respective regions once again. For more on just how much firepower is back, check out our D3 Top 20 Countdown finale post that details both teams.
Here is the full ranking (first-place votes in parentheses)
- Stevenson (13)
- RIT (8)
- Washington College
- Western New England
- Washington & Lee
- St. Mary’s
