Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – The day after its overtime 17-16 win over UAlbany, the Syracuse University men’s lacrosse team held its spots in both major college lacrosse polls.

SU stayed at No. 1 in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse poll and also held steady at No. 2 behind Duke in the Warrior/Inside Lacrosse Poll.

The USILA poll’s top five is dominated by the ACC, with Duke, North Carolina, Notre Dame, and Virginia filling out the top five behind SU.

The ACC also filled out the top five in the Warrior/Inside Lacrosse poll. North Carolina, Notre Dame, and Maryland followed the Blue Devils and the Orange at the top of the rankings.

Both polls were released on Monday.
