Notre Dame the new No. 1 in men’s lacrosse

Don’t look now but there is a top-ranked team nationally on Notre Dame’s campus.  The season may be young but the 6-0 Fighting Irish men’s lacrosse team checked in the top spot overall in this week’s college lacrosse media rankings.

The Irish are 6-0 on the year, fresh off an 18-8 victory at Michigan over the weekend.  Of the six wins, three have come against teams currently ranked (No. 2 Maryland, No. 16 Georgetown, and No. 19 Ohio State).  Two Irish opponents from this season also showed up in the receiving votes category this week (Marquette and Michigan).

No. 1 Notre Dame is set for a showdown this weekend as they play host to No. 4 Virginia, who was ranked in the nation’s top spot before falling at home to No. 2 Maryland this past weekend.

As is tradition, the university lit up the #1 on top of Grace Hall to celebrate.
