Towson Breaks Into Nike/Inside Lacrosse Media Poll
Tigers Ranked For First Time Since May 3, 2010

TOWSON, Md. – Riding a four-game winning streak and coming off the largest fourth quarter comeback in the 53-year history of the program, the Towson men’s lacrosse team has broken into the national rankings this week. The Tigers (6-3, 2-0 CAA) find themselves ranked No. 19 in this week’s Nike/Inside Lacrosse Media Poll.

It’s the first time Towson has been ranked since checking in at No. 20 in the May 3, 2010 poll.

The Tigers narrowly missed being ranked in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) poll as they are the top squad in the receiving vote’s category.

The Colonial Athletic Association boasts three schools in the Top 20 as Towson joins No. 2 Massachusetts and No. 16 Penn State in the rankings.

The Tigers host crosstown rival UMBC, which is receiving votes in the Inside Lacrosse poll, on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. Towson will then look to remain perfect in CAA play as they battle second-ranked UMass on the road on Saturday.
