PHILADELPHIA - Another preseason poll was released earlier this week for men's lacrosse, this time by Lacrosse Magazine. And once again, the rankings contain the University of Pennsylvania program. Lacrosse Magazine has the Quakers at No. 17.
This ranking comes on the heels of the Inside Lacrosse Face-Off Yearbook, which put Penn at No. 11 and listed seniors Brian Feeney, Zack Losco and Maxx Meyer as Preseason All-America honorable mention.
Penn is one of four Ivy League teams in the Lacrosse Magazine poll, behind Princeton (6th) and Yale (11th) and ahead of Cornell (18th). Overall, the Quakers' 2014 schedule features seven teams ranked in the Lacrosse Magazine preseason poll -- in addition to the Tigers, Bulldogs and Big Red, Penn will also face Duke (1st), Denver (4th), St. John's (19th) and Villanova (20th).
Lacrosse Magazine will preview one team from its preseason rankings each day leading up to the start of the season. Penn's preview will be published on Thursday, Jan. 16.
Penn will open the 2014 season on Friday, Feb. 21 at defending NCAA champion Duke. The Quakers' home opener comes three days later, when they host Saint Joseph's.
