Skyler recaps the women’s lacrosse weekend, with Florida and Navy surviving tough tests.
Half the Reverse Survivor field won a game this past weekend, which means they’ve been eliminated.
Depending on which other poll you look at besides ours, Albany and Maryland are the number one team in the nation.

With Albany and Stony Brook moving to #1 in the media polls, it’s the first time that a SUNY school was ranked #1 in any lacrosse poll!
In the US Lacrosse Division II rankings, Merrimack and Le Moyne are still 1-2, with Tampa, Belmont Abbey, and Pace rounding out the top five.
In the US Lacrosse Division III rankings, Wesleyan and York are still 1-2 as well, with RIT, Denison, and Gettysburg rounding out the top five.
We’re all ears for this one!
This weekend’s Jacksonville-Vermont game at Archbishop Spalding HS in Maryland will be streamed!
Amazing that Jacksonville & Vermont are coming to Maryland Saturday to play at Archbishop Spalding! @JU_MLAX & @UVMmlax are both having incredible years! Even better is that @CSELax is broadcasting the game with @BookerCorrigan from @SpaldingBoysLax . https://t.co/PpkS0zXeTb pic.twitter.com/ymEpNT1TcC— TLax1 (@T_Lax_1) February 27, 2018
“It’s definitely a day that I’ll always remember,” coach Ann Elliot said. “It’s a tough day. You have a player call you, and tell you what happened to their friend, it’s hard.”
“It’s been a tough month, one that’s been up and down,” senior Blair Sisk said.
Sisk scored the team’s first goal, celebrating with her teammates near a large “JS” logo painted on the field.
“When I look down it makes my heart a little warm,” Sisk said. “It’s a good thing that it’s on our field, because you know that that emotion, you can harness it.”

This was a fire goal by Princeton Tigers attackman Phillip Robertson. But I think the play-by-play guy was already focused on next Sunday’s game against Syracuse:
