The University of Denver men’s lacrosse team dropped to sixth in the USILA Coaches’ Poll and fifth in the Maverik Media Poll on Monday, following its 17-8 win over Cleveland State Sunday at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium.

Denver did receive a first place vote in the media poll, but finished three points behind Virginia for fourth. Albany, Maryland and Duke took the top three spots in both polls on Monday.

Ohio State maintained the fourth spot in this week’s coaches’ poll, while Virginia took the No. 5 spot. The Buckeyes, who will visit Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium March 17th, are sixth in this week’s media poll.

Spots 7-10 are the same in both polls on Monday, a quartet that includes three future opponents for the Pioneers. Villanova (Away – April 7) has the seventh spot after a perfect 3-0 start, Notre Dame (Away – March 10) checks in at No. 8 and North Carolina (Away – March 5) rounded out the top-10 in both polls.

[17/17] Georgetown (Away – March 31) and [18/19] Marquette (Home – April 28) are the other two Denver opponents in the top-20 this week.

The Pioneers are also fourth in this week’s Lacrosse Magazine Staff poll.

Earlier on Monday, Baptiste was named the BIG EAST Midfielder of the Week. Read that full release, here.
