Loyola Maryland takes tops spot in both rankings

BALTIMORE -- Loyola Maryland reached the top spot in both the Warrior/Inside Lacrosse media poll and the USILA coaches’ rankings on Monday for the first time in 2014, marking the third consecutive season the Greyhounds have been ranked No. 1 for at least one polling session.

Complete Poll
The Greyhounds have won eight consecutive games and are 8-1 overall, 4-0 in the Patriot League, heading into a Saturday, March 29, game at Colgate in Hamilton, N.Y.

Loyola was last ranked first in the opening polls of the 2013 season, and the Greyhounds also ascended to the top spot on April 16, 2012, where they spent the next three weeks before entering the NCAA championships ranked second.

It also marks the first time that a Patriot League team has been ranked No. 1 in either poll, and the Greyhounds are the first team in any sport from the conference to be ranked No. 1 since Holy Cross was top in then-Division I-AA during the 1987 football season.
