MANCHESTER, N.H. – The Saint Anselm College men’s lacrosse team was ranked No. 19 by US Lacrosse Magazine and No. 20 by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) this week, as both national polls were announced on Monday.
Saint Anselm (2-1, 1-0 NE10) moved up one spot to No. 19 in the US Lacrosse Magazine rankings and cracked the USILA coaches poll for the first time this season at No. 20. The Hawks had been receiving votes in the USILA poll last week.
In its lone game of the week last week, Saint Anselm topped Post 18-11 on Friday afternoon, using an eight-goal first quarter to take a lead it would not relinquish. Anthony Busconi scored a career-high five goals and Dylan Ryan tallied a career-high six points on three goals and three assists to lead the Hawks to the win.
Next up for the Hawks is a Northeast-10 Conference home game against the College of Saint Rose at noon on Saturday, March 25 at Grappone Stadium.
