Buffs Remain Among Nationally Ranked

Apr 4, 2022

BOULDER—Colorado continued to be among the top nationally-ranked women's lacrosse programs in the country, following its weekend split in Northern California. 

The Buffaloes open the week tied for 25th in the IL Women/IWLCA Division I Poll and 20th in the USA Lacrosse Magazine Poll. 

Colorado (9-3) is one of four Pac-12 teams in the weekly rankings. The Buffs opened last week with a loss to then No. 25 Stanford but bounced back with a commanding 17-9 win at California on Sunday. 

CU is idle this week and will be back in action on Apr. 15, hosting Southern California at Kittredge Filed (4 p.m. MT).

North Carolina remained the top team in both pools.
