Men’s Lacrosse Ranked Eighth in Latest NEILA Poll

HAMDEN, Conn. – The Quinnipiac University men's lacrosse team was again recognized in the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association's (NEILA) Weekly Poll as the Bobcats were ranked eighth in the 10th edition, announced on Tuesday, April 22, 2014.

For the Bobcats, they have their eyes set on a bigger goal – reaching the MAAC Tournament. Next weekend, the other six conference teams are all in action – leaving a wide array of playoff scenarios. With a win against the Saints this past weekend, Quinnipiac would have solidified a spot in the four-team field. However, with the result, the Bobcats need some help around the league for a chance to compete in the 2014 MAAC Championships.

Quinnipiac wraps up regular-season competition with a pair of non-conference games this week. Quinnipiac travels over the border into New Haven to take on nationally-ranked No. 13 Yale on Tuesday night; before taking on Air Force on Saturday, April 26 at 12 p.m. The men's lacrosse program will honor its senior class prior to the tilt with the Falcons at the QU Lacrosse Turf Field.
