NEILA Week 6 Poll 2017

NEWTON, Mass. — Yale University narrowly reclaimed the top spot in Division 1 as the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA) announces the sixth week of polls for Divisions 1, 2, and 3 in men’s lacrosse.

Yale breaks a four-week streak of Boston University being the top team in the Division, though the schools nearly split the first place votes (4-3 Yale). Merrimack College continued their rule as the unanimous #1 team in Division 2. In Division 3, Tufts University was again voted as the top program, and Bates College again received one first place vote as the Division 3 rankings remained completely unchanged from a week ago
