With relatively light game schedules over the past week, there were minimal changes in this week’s WCLA (Women’s Collegiate Lacrosse Associates) Division I and II coaches polls. Pittsburgh and Utah State hold the respective No. 1 positions for the third straight week. 

In Division I, San Diego State, Michigan Club, BYU, and Cal Poly round out the top five. Cal Poly was the biggest mover of the week, jumping three spots to join the top five after defeating No. 6 UCLA . The Bruins dropped two spots this week.

Loyola Club, Air Force, Denver Club and Stanford Club complete the top five in the Division II poll. Stanford moved up one spot this week to displace No. 6 St. Thomas.

Top ranked Utah State returns to action this week with games against BYU, Weber State, and No. 15 Utah Valley.

“Our team has been working hard and pushing for a higher level of play. Being number one in the poll is a credit to the work each player and coach has put into creating a new identity. We welcome the challenge to stay on top and are looking forward to our next game,” said Utah State coach Krista Shepherd Call.

The biggest mover in Division II was No. 13 UC Irvine, which climbed six spots following its 11-10 victory over No. 14 UC San Diego.

No. 9 TCU moved up two spots to claim a space in the Top 10. No. 11 Iowa State also jumped two positions this week.

The WCLA features 230 Division I and Division II non-varsity teams that compete under the US Lacrosse umbrella. The 2019 season will conclude with the US Lacrosse WCLA D-I and D-II national championships in Virginia Beach, May 8-11.
