For the first time in the young program’s history, Cal State San Marcos has been ranked as one of the top 25 teams in the nation. The Under Armour Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association Coaches Poll is published weekly throughout the season, with teams in Division I and II ranked by the coaches in their respective division. After wins last weekend against Northern Arizona and #21 Fort Lewis brought them to 7-0, the coaches recognized the Cougars’ excellent play thus far in the 2015 season and awarded them the number 21 spot. San Marcos is a member of the Southwestern Lacrosse Conference, which features two other teams in the top 25: Concordia University at #6, and Cal State Fullerton, who came in at #10 .
Assistant Coach Chase Allvord, who is also the program’s founder, expressed his great satisfaction with the release of Tuesday’s poll, “This is accomplishment is a testament to all of the hard work every student-athlete, coach, and staff member has put into this program from the beginning. Everyone who has been involved with this team since 2010 should be very proud of this milestone. I cannot wait to see what the next 5 years has in store for us.”
