Hopkins opens lax season in top five of both polls

Posted on 28 January 2013 by WNST Staff

BALTIMORE, MD – Less than two weeks from its season-opener, the Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse team earned a pair of preseason top five rankings on Monday. The Blue Jays are tied for fourth in the USILA Preseason Coaches Poll and check in at number five in the Nike/Inside Lacrosse Preseason Media Poll. The Blue Jays picked up one first-place vote and 186 points in the USILA Poll and earned one first-place vote and 402 points in the Nike/Inside Lacrosse Poll.

The Johns Hopkins office of Athletic Communications uses the USILA Poll to represent Johns Hopkins’ official national ranking.

Johns Hopkins returns eight starters from last year’s team, which posted a 12-4 record and advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals. Among the returning starters are senior defenseman Tucker Durkin, the 2012 William C. Schmeisser Award winner as the nation’s top defenseman, Second Team All-American midfielders John Ranagan and Rob Guida, and senior Zach Palmer, who led the team in scoring last season with 27 goals and 26 assists.

Johns Hopkins will open the 2013 season at home against Siena on Friday, February 8.
