NW and Cuse definitely separating themselves from the rest of the top 10. Both have solid defenses and on the offense end they run very good sets to create offense and opportunities. I just had a chance to flip through the BC and UNC games. Both have a lot of work to do on offensive end to compete with BC and SU. 1v1 everywhere don’t work against top teams.

I think NW and Cuse will be two left standing.

Lots of lax to play.

Lol, unless your daughter plays for NU or Cuse, you have ugly losses, so slow down. Let the girls play, and improve as the season goes. Stanford will never be irrelevant and will likely win their conference and make the tournament most years. They do need to take the next step, which they may or may not do. It won’t be due to lack of talent. At the end of the day, the girls will walk away with a life changing degree.

Cuse only beat NW by 1 - so the Cuse/UNC game will be interesting. As long as Cuse continues to stay healthy (losing their DC didn't seem to be an issue against Duke).

Facts over feelings… In BC’s 3 losses, said player has 4 goals, 3 assists and 12 turnovers. Elite players show-up in the biggest games and it is fair to say that has not happened yet this season.

Again the refs are not consistent. Watching the games the amount of check towards the body and cross checking that is being done in women’s lacrosse is fool. It is getting worse and worse.

It is clear poke and slap checking. Allow it everywhere is your going to allow it. It is becoming a joke.

Nope. Not it. And to give you reference about it. Some mother was trashing BS last year. All I said was what are you upset Belle stole your daughters prom date. It was a sarcastic remark. And then the mother kinda insinuated it to be true. 🤷🏻‍♂️. I got banned after saying Stanford shouldn’t be ranked.

So you dont find the reference to a high school girls "scoring" on prom night to be creepy. I doubt you got banned by saying Stanford shouldn't be ranked as even the fool Stanford dads can't still believe tehy should be ranked.

Who cares about coaches polls? Computer rankings are used by NCAA committe and only ones that matter.

You missed it. The original posts were over a year ago. Look back. Mother accused me of being Belle Smiths mother. That’s where the prom thing comes into. Go back and look. It wasn’t creepy. Your taking it out of context.

And I don’t think I was banned because of the Stanford post. That’s when I got banned. My last post was about Stanford. Probably not banned. I switched internet providers in my house. I’m imagining it had something to do with that. But no. It’s a sarcastic comment. They hated that BS had a successful sophomore year and there was back and forth about it. Now they are floating because she had a bad game. Didn’t hear them talking last week when she dominated.

I really don’t think anyone’s name should ever be mentioned here, especially by someone anonymously, it’s just cowardly and wrong.

There are major shakeups in the Top 5 teams of the ILWomen/IWLCA Division I Poll — including a new No. 1.

North Carolina, which had gone more than 1,000 days since its last regular-season loss, was No. 1 in the poll since Week 6 of 2022. It is the first time a team other than UNC or BC is No. 1 since 2019.

Syracuse and Denver remain as the two remaining undefeated teams in the Top 10, as Denver pulled off a big win over Boston College, moving the Pioneers up two spots into the No. 4 position, while the Eagles dropped to No. 7.

James Madison rounds out the Top 5, winning its eighth-straight game and first in its new conference over Florida on Saturday.

The ILWomen/IWLCA Poll will be unveiled Mondays throughout the season. It is voted on jointly by coaches throughout the country and members of the media.

My annual message to all, a bit later in the season then in the past, is to keep the comments lacrosse related and not malicious.

Some thoughts per division. D1, to me, is a two team horse race with Syracuse and Northwestern. Not that anyone can can knock off anyone else come tournament time (Purdue in men’s basketball and FDU) but I think those are the teams to beat.

D2 shows how far the sport has come geographically. So many teams from outside the “traditional” lacrosse areas. Great to see.

D3 dominated by the NESCAC once again. Nine teams in the IWLCA poll. As we know polls mean nothing come tournament time as regional ranking take precedent. As a conference they are by far the most competitive.

I’ll reiterate lets keep the comments within lacrosse related matters.

BC does not look even close to what they were ,I know everyone attributes it to the loss of CN but I think it may have more to do with the absence of their most valuable player this year due to injury. Seems like no one has noticed what a difference she makes. Watching Duke play this year is brutal and the me ball by the superstar has to be brutal as a teammate , the forces and turnovers while controlling the draw have to be difficult as a fan to deal with.

2023 ILWomen/IWLCA Division I Poll – March 27



Women’s DI lacrosse was as steady as can be this past week.

The Top 10 teams are the same in the ILWomen/IWLCA Division I Poll. Syracuse is the clear No. 1 and gained every first-place vote. Northwestern, North Carolina, Denver and James Madison, respectively, keep their pace in the Top 5.

The Orange (11-0) beat Stony Brook and Louisville within the past week, while Northwestern earned wins against Johns Hopkins and Stanford.

The first change is Virginia and Notre Dame flip-flopping at 11 and 12 after the Cavaliers beat the Fighting Irish on Saturday. Then, there are minor shifts with Penn State rising two spots to 18, and Penn and Navy each bumping up one.

The ILWomen/IWLCA Poll will be unveiled Mondays throughout the season. It is voted on jointly by coaches throughout the country and members of the media.

Wow, thank you for such an insightful post. What would the rest of us do without such words of wisdom?

I am pretty positive you would be doing the same thing you have been doing the whole season , watching your Duke player only care about her stats playing me ball all the while turning it over again and again and again. Sorry if you did not think it insightful to point out how much BC misses a player who does not get much fan fare or play like a ball hog.

Co-Offensive Player of the Week

Erin Coykendall – Northwestern University

Coykendall scored a combined 11 goals and five assists in No. 2 Northwestern’s pair of wins over Johns Hopkins University and Stanford University. She had a career-high five goals against the Blue Jays but broke that mark with a new high of six against the Cardinal. She added five assists to her offensive numbers as well. Northwestern is currently on a 10-game win streak and will face No. 18 Penn State this Thursday at home.

Co-Offensive Player of the Week

Lizzie Yurchak – University of Delaware

Yurchak recorded a career-high six goals against Monmouth University, including the game-tying goal with 14 seconds remaining in regulation and the game-winner in overtime. Delaware's 13-12 comeback victory from down 9-4 was its largest since 2019.

Co-Defensive Player of the Week

Kat Buchanan – James Madison University

Buchanan boasted a career-high 12 saves as No. 5 James Madison defeated No. 12 University of Virginia, 10-8. Her .600 save percentage against UVA is marked as a career-high for a full game for Buchanan. The senior allowed just one goal in the first half against Temple University and finished the game with a .529 save percentage to hold the Owls below 10 goals. Buchanan has held nine opponents below 10 goals this season and has registered eight games with a .500 or better save percentage. Buchanan was named the American Athletic Conference Goalkeeper of the Week this past Monday. This is Buchanan’s second IWLCA Player of the Week honor this season.

Co-Defensive Player of the Week

Ellie Hollin – Pennsylvania State University

Hollin had major defensive contributions to both of No. 20 Penn State's wins this week. In a dominating 13-3 win over Ohio State University, Hollin helped the defense record a first half shutout, holding her man, the Buckeyes leading scorer, to only one goal throughout the entire game. She also posted five ground balls, five caused turnovers and one draw control against the Buckeyes. In the 15-12 win over the University of Pittsburgh, she held the Panthers' leading scorer to just one goal and added one ground ball, one caused turnover and two draw controls. Penn State has shifted up two slots to the No. 18 position in the latest ILWomen/IWLCA Division I poll.

She recorded nine points (five goals, three assists) in the win over the Dolphins, while racking up four points - including a hat trick - in an 18-11 win over Southern Connecticut State University. She added two ground balls, two draw controls and one caused turnover this week. Pace has now moved into the No. 2 position in the latest ILWomen/IWLCA Division II rankings.

Defensive Player of the Week

Grace Frasso – West Chester University

Frasso played an integral role on a defense that held two opponents, one of those being No. 11 ranked East Stroudsburg University, to just five goals each in a pair of wins. Part of that effort included holding All-America midfielder Emily Mitarotonda from ESU to just two points (1G, 1A) in a 16-5 win. Additionally, Frasso helped the No. 1 Golden Rams clear the ball successfully 25 of 27 times in the two games combined. She finished the week with five draw controls and five caused turnovers while scooping up three ground balls.

Edwards helped lead the Warren Wilson attack from a 7-2 deficit in the first quarter to a seven-goal run in the second quarter en route to a 16-11 win over Sweet Briar College. Dylan's five goals and six assists, totaling 11 points, is a program record for Warren Wilson. With six assists, Edwards broke the assists in a game record for the program as well.

Schipf was named the Little East Conference Goalie of the Week after totaling 11 saves in Western Connecticut’s 10-9 overtime triumph at U.S. Coast Guard Academy last week. Seven of those stops came in the second half, and she turned away the only shot on target she faced in the extra period.

For those top 15 teams hoping to make a move and possibly get a seed come NCAA tournament time there do not seem to many opportunities remaining in the regular season to do so. I see UVA vs BC and MD vs NW , any others. After that I guess the conference tournaments will be a possibility to make the move up. Any bubble teams to making the tournament with big upcoming legit chances. The fact that 29 teams make the tournament makes it seem as if any top 40 team has a legit chance but those spots go fast . You have fifteen conference champions who are automatically in leaving 14 at large bids , figure 4 will go to ACC teams,leaving 10, 3 to the big ten leaving 7, florida or jmu leaving 6 , yale or princeton leaving 5 . Any other almost locks to make the tournament.

Why is it 29 teams instead of 30?

ASUN Conference Champs will make it. Historically, that’s Jacksonville and I do not expect the ASUN to be locked out this year.

There will invariably be some head scratching as some teams are left out (Arizona State last season) while some others that shouldn’t have made it in (looking at you, Notre Dame) pad their schedule work some late additions to clear 0.500 to qualify.

Should be a fun tournament this year.

So if Duke goes .500, you think they get in? Worst case they go 8-8, best case 9-7. I think 9-7 and they're in. But if VT can beat them, they'd only be 2-6 in conference.
