The Syracuse Orange women’s lacrosse team has been voted as the runner-up in the Atlantic Coast Conference this year. In the annual coaches poll, No. 5 Syracuse received 52 points, including one first-place vote.
Unsurprisingly the preseason favorite is defending ACC and NCAA champion North Carolina, who were picked to finish first by the seven other coaches in the conference and totaling 63 points.
2017 ACC Women's Lacrosse Coaches Poll:
|1||North Carolina||63 (7)|
Last year SU finished the season with a 19-6 (5-2 ACC) record. Syracuse fell to the Tar Heels 15-14 in overtime.
Syracuse then went on to earn the fourth seed in the NCAA tournament where they advanced to the Final Four before losing to Maryland 19-9. Last year marked the fifth consecutive season in which the Orange have made it to the Final Four.
Syracuse will get to ACC action right away as they open up their season on Feb. 11 against Boston College at noon in the Carrier Dome.
