Shorewomen Lacrosse Ascends to Highest National Ranking in a Dozen Years

Shorewomen Also Nationally-Ranked for Three Consecutive Weeks for First Time

GRAND LAKE, CO -- The Washington College women's lacrosse team has risen to 18th in the latest Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Division III Top 20, the team's highest national ranking in over a dozen years. 

The Shorewomen are 9-1 this season, with the only blemish on their record thus far coming against the current seventh-ranked team in Division III, Franklin & Marshall. Washington has won each of its other nine games by an average of 8.67 goals per game. 

The Shorewomen were ranked 17th in the preseason poll released prior to the start of the 2001 season. 

This also marks the first time since the end of the 2000 season that the Shorewomen have been ranked in the top 20 in three consecutive weeks in the same season. They made their season debut in the March 26th poll at No. 20 and remained in that spot in last week's poll, released April 2nd.

The Shorewomen return to action tomorrow with a 4:30 p.m. game at Bryn Mawr.
