Men's Lacrosse Movin' On Up

Last weekend, the 'underdog' Fairfield Stags took down Dartmouth, 14-9, in the team's season opener. In the preseason, Dartmouth was ranked 2nd overall in the New England Lacrosse Coaches' Poll. The Stags were fifth.

Apparently now people are starting to take notice.

In the recent USILA National Men's Lacrosse Rankings, the Stags are now ranked 20th overall in the nation. This marks the first time this season that the Stags have been featured in this poll. A season ago, the men were ranked as high as 13th overall in the country. Also, the Stags are ranked 13th in the recent D-I LaxPower poll (a similar concept to basketball's RPI).

Ironically, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights - the Stags' next opponent and the team's first ECAC game - are ranked 19th.

More to come!
