College Crosse Top 20 Poll for April 24, 2018

The poll sees it’s biggest shake-up yet

Yale Athletics

The College Crosse Top 20 saw perhaps it’s biggest shake-up of the season so far, as the #1 Maryland Terrapins and #2 Albany Great Danes both suffered losses just a few hours apart from each other on Sunday. This has caused a big restructuring of the Top 10, as have several other notable results that saw ranked teams fall this weekend.

The new #1 in the College Crosse Top 20 is the Yale Bulldogs, coming off a decisive and dominant win over previously #2 Albany. It’s not a unanimous #1 though, as the Duke Blue Devils received 3 number one votes - Yale received six - and now move into the #2 spot. Maryland and Albany fell from #1 and #2 to #4 and #6 respectively. Denver moved up a spot to #3, while Cornell entered the Top 5 for the first time all year at #5. Other upsets such as Syracuse’s loss to Navy saw the Orange drop from 10th to a tie for 12th with Penn State, and Notre Dame’s loss to North Carolina saw the Irish fall out of the Top 20 for the first time all season.

Just to review our pollsters for anyone new to our blog, this year we have Jack Goods (The Buffalo News) and Caroline Darney (SB Nation & Streaking The Lawn) voting alongside Chris, Ryan, Adam, Safe, and myself. Additionally, we asked new writers Dan & Skyler to join us in voting for the remainder of the regular season, which gives us a total of 9 voters in our Poll.
