Tremble Before The Awesome Might Of Syracuse Lacrosse

The asskickery continues...

The Women completed the season with their second straight Big East title on Sunday. After a
22-7 manhandling (or I suppose it would be womanhandling) of Rutgers on Friday, the Orange met Georgetown in the finals. After spotting the Hoyas a 3-0 lead, the Orange used eight consecutive goals in the 2nd half to pull away for a 12-6 victory. The win cliched an automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament for the ladies, not that they needed it.

Superhuman Katie Rowan had three goals, which brought her career total to 171. That ties her for first place on Syracuse’s career goals scored list. Oh and it bears repeating yet again...she's a junior.

SU (16-2)
remained fourth in the media poll but there was a shake-up up top. Mighty Northwestern lost to Penn and the Quakers took over the top spot and the Wildcats slipped to #2. The Orange remain behind #3 Virginia by only three points. The Orange will find out its tournament assignment on Monday, May 5 when the NCAA announces the 2008 bracket.

The men's season is still winding down but the Orange's offense is in high gear. They scored the first nine goals of the game on Saturday en route to a 16-3 victory against UMass (5-8). It was their 10th straight win and improved the team's record at home to 8-0.

Mike Leveille scored three goals and dished three assists. The three goals gave him 119 for his SU career (15th all-time) and he also moved into 16th all-time in career assists (74) and 16th in career scoring (193).

In the rankings, the Orange remained #2 in the media poll. Duke's ACC Championship saw to it that they'll likely retain the #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

With their home schedule finished, Syracuse closes out its regular season on Saturday, May 3, at Colgate. The Red Raiders (10-5)
won the Patriot League this weekend. With the win, the Orange should secure at least the #2 overall seed in the NCAA Tourney.
