The Blue Hens start 10-2, earn first top-20 ranking since 2012
All spring, the University of Delaware men’s lacrosse team has been accomplishing feats that hadn’t been done in many years by the Blue Hens.
Add another one to the list as Delaware earned its first national ranking since 2012 on Monday when the Blue Hens were ranked No. 20 in two of the three polls.
“This is great for our program and the University,” coach Ben Deluca said. “We’re extremely grateful to be ambassadors for this tremendous University, but we all know that we have a lot of work left in front of us. Our focus will always remain at the task at hand and being at our best, representing this University at the highest level every time we step on the field.”
The Blue Hens are 10-2 overall this season, marking the program’s best start since 1999. With two critical weeks left in Colonial Athletic Association play, Delaware is all alone atop the standings at 3-0 with games against the two other top teams, Towson (April 20) and UMass (April 27) on the horizon.
Delaware and Towson square off in a match up of two top-20 ranked teams at Delaware Stadium at noon on Saturday, April 20.
