College Lacrosse: Greyhounds Ahead of the Pack

Given their historical success at the sport, it would be underselling Loyola University Maryland to say their present hold on college lacrosse's top spot is shocking.

Still, the Greyhounds (11-0) haven't held a #1 ranking in the polls at any point since 1999, and haven't made the DI finals since 1990. Loyola lacrosse dates back to 1938, and since then has reached the 11 win+ plateau ten times, including this year.

The only other currently undefeated DI team in lacrosse this spring is the UMass Minutemen (11-0).
