Prodigy MCLA Top 25 Polls for March 10

ATLANTA (March 10, 2010) The third Prodigy poll of the MCLA season was just released. And the same two programs remain at the top of the rankings. The two-time defending MCLA champion Michigan Wolverines have continued their winning ways with road victories over No. 3 Arizona State and No. 7 Brigham Young. Michigan will battle No. 13 Simon Fraser this Saturday in Ann Arbor.

Michigan (3-0) is followed in the latest Div. I rankings by No. 2 Chapman (6-0), No. 3 Arizona State (3-1). Breaking into the Top 5 with convincing wins over No. 13 Simon Fraser and No. 21 University of New Hampshire is Colorado State (5-0) at No. 4. Minnesota-Duluth (5-0) rounds out the top 5 and will travel to No. 3 Arizona State for another top 5 showdown in Tempe.

In the Division II poll, St. Thomas retains the top slot. The Tommies (defending Div. II national champions), opened the season with a 16-1 victory over Wisconsin-Eau Claire, are followed in the poll by No. 2 Davenport (5-0) and No. 3 Utah Valley University (1-1).

Dayton (2-0) and St. John's (3-0) round out the top five in the latest Div. II poll.

Entering its 12th year of existence, the Prodigy MCLA Top 25 polls will once again serve as the preeminent ranking system for the Men's Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA). Multiple MCLA Coaches and MCLA Conference Administrators from all 10 MCLA conferences across the country will serve on this year's voting panel.
