Syracuse University Athletics - Softball Reaches New Heights - Nationally Ranked For First Time in School History
For the first time in the program’s history, the Syracuse University softball team is nationally ranked. The Orange is ranked 25th in this week’s USA Today/NFCA Division I Top 25 poll. Syracuse, which earned 27 votes in the poll, is off to the best start in school history with a 16-3 record and has won nine of its last 10 games, including the last four.

Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim well-acquainted with Big East Tournament's effect on NCAA-bound teams

Syracuse University lacrosse team has work to do on its man-up offense, which is 2-for-16 so far |
"I thought our first couple of man-ups we took some shots from the outside we would have rather worked at a little more," Desko said. "And a couple times we just got robbed. The one near the end that could have put us up four goals at the time when Keogh had one on the crease, he usually buries those. But the goalie made a great save and kicked it out. And I think at the end we weren’t concerned about scoring. We were more concerned about taking time off the clock and finishing the game. That hurt our stats, but you’re playing the percentages."

Poliquin: Wesley Johnson and Jonny Flynn left Syracuse for this? (Well, they are getting paid.) |
