Mountain Hawks Come in at No. 14 in Inside Lacrosse Media Poll
BETHLEHEM, Pa. — Entering 2022 with high hopes, the Lehigh men’s lacrosse team ranks 14th in the Inside Lacrosse Media Poll, announced Monday. The Mountain Hawks accumulated 176 points, just one point behind Syracuse and Denver (in 12th place) and three points behind Penn (in 11th place). Lehigh was previously ranked 11th in US Lacrosse Magazine’s preseason poll.
The Mountain Hawks face four teams in the Inside Lacrosse Media Poll: Georgetown (4), Loyola (8), Army West Point (10), and Cornell (15).
Lehigh brings back a strong core from last season’s team, including his top five goalscorers, and most of his defense, led by Teddy Leggett and Anthony Tangredi. Along with Leggett, who is returning for a fifth year, is goaltender James Spence, who was named an honorable All-American last season. All-American First Team Mike Sisselberger returns to the faceoff circle after a record-breaking NCAA season, winning 79.5 percent of his faceoffs (225 of 283) with 160 ground balls.
The Mountain Hawks open their season Saturday, February 12 at NJIT.
