With high hopes entering the 2021 season, the Lehigh men’s lacrosse team was ranked in another preseason poll, coming in at No. 16 in the Inside Lacrosse Preseason Rankings.
The Mountain Hawks are one of three Patriot League opponents ranked, trailing Loyola (13) and Army West Point (15).
A few weeks ago, Lehigh was ranked 16th in the US Lacrosse Preseason Top 20.
The Mountain Hawks feature a strong core of returning players, which includes returning fifth-year seniors Crew Cintron, Andrew Eichelberger, Conor Gaffney (Lenape) and Christian McHugh, who are all enrolled in graduate school. Eichelberger, along with seniors Teddy Leggett and Matt Douglas, will serve as team captains – as announced last month.
Penn State is ranked No. 7. Also, Penn is ranked No, 17 and Villanova No. 19.
