The LIU Post (formerly C.W. Post) women claimed the No. 1 position in Lacrosse Magazine’s 2013 NCAA Division II preseason rankings, released Friday.
The No. 1 Pioneers edged West Chester, 17-16, to win the 2012 NCAA championship, thanks largely to reigning IWLCA Attacker of the Year Jackie Sileo, who scored an NCAA record nine points in the final and a record 17 points in the tournament as a sophomore. LIU Post also returns the 2012 IWLCA Goalkeeper of the Year in Dominque Mosca (173 saves). The runner-up Golden Rams enter the season ranked third, behind Adelphi.
