As many of you know, we did our College Crosse 2018 Preseason Top 20 Poll back in December. We decided to update our picks before the first real weekend of lacrosse in light of some developments in January and the dozen or so games from last weekend. This year we have Jack Goods (The Buffalo News), James Simmons (Troy Nunes), and Caroline Darney (SB Nation & Streaking The Lawn) voting alongside Chris, Marisa, Ryan, Adam, Jake, & myself.

Directly below you can find each of our top 20 votes and the graph below that is our College Crosse 2018 Top 20 going into Week 1, with our votes from December in the next column so as you can compare the differences since December. We also have one transaction in our College Crosse Fantasy league!

Rutgers dropped a bit from our Preseason Poll. The news that Adam Charalambides was out for the season took a little luster off of the Scarlet Knights, though RU is still seventh overall in our updated poll. Penn State dropped four slots after their loss to Villanova last weekend. The win over the Nittany Lions helped catapult the Wildcats into the top 20 after not making the cut back in December. Let us know what you think about our poll in the comments section.
