April 8, 2019 -- The Mount St. Mary's men's lacrosse team, winners of four straight contests and seven of its last eight, is receiving votes in the latest Inside Lacrosse Division I Media Poll, which was released on Monday.
The Mount opened Northeast Conference (NEC) play with wins over Bryant, Robert Morris and Sacred Heart, before posting a 16-15 victory at Utah on Saturday to make it four consecutive wins. The Mountaineers currently sit at the top of the league standings with a perfect 3-0 mark, one game ahead of both Saint Joseph's and Hobart.
The 3-0 record in NEC action is the best start in league play for the Mountaineers since the 2011 campaign, when they won their first four conference games and went on to claim the NEC Tournament Title in the league's first season.
The Mountaineers have faced four nationally-ranked teams on the year, and picked up their sixth all-time win against a ranked opponent in the 12-11 overtime triumph at #14 Richmond back in early March.
Mount St. Mary's heads to Wagner for a matchup this Saturday, April 13 at 1 p.m. Following the game vs. the Seahawks, Mount St. Mary's closes out the regular season with contests against Hobart and Saint Joseph's.
