UConn Ranked 5th in PCLL Preseason Poll

Sunday, October 31, 2010

The Pioneer Collegiate Lacrosse League recently held their fall meeting and released their Pre-Season Coaches Poll.

The University of Buffalo will be joining the PCLL and Southern Connecticut State University will be playing its first year in the PCLL Division II this spring. SCSU were voted in at the last Spring meeting after playing a provisional season against PCLL opponents.

The PCLL will also be reviewing and re-writing their by-laws to be more specific and current.

“There weren’t really any surprises in the rankings,” said PCLL Commissioner Ben Clark. “In Division I, seeing Boston College on top is nothing new, and in Division II, Briarcliffe is coming off a great year, returning most of their players. However, there’s a lot more parity in the league than meets the eye. Top to bottom, the PCLL is a very deep conference in both divisions. I don’t think there’s ever a conference game where one coach thinks to himself, ‘This will be an easy win.’”

Clark also stated, “It’s always been a challenge for us to get out of conference games, but it’s getting easier and easier every year as coaches around the country are starting to realize the level of talent that resides in the PCLL. For example, Colorado is coming to New England in April to play BC, UNH, and UCONN. Also, Texas State is making a trip here in the spring. BC is also playing Michigan and Michigan State, and UNH is traveling to Arizona to play Arizona State, Santa Clara, and Wisconsin.”
