KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Indiana Tech remains at No. 1 in the final regular-season edition of the 2022 Men's Lacrosse Coaches' Top 10 Poll, released Sunday.

Poll Methodology

  • The rating committee is comprised of eight raters — two raters per conference/group.

  • Each conference/group produces a conference rating from which raters will use to compile their national ballot. Only teams represented on the conference rating are eligible for the national ballot.

  • Each rater will submit a top 15 ballot, which will be used to produce the Top 10 national rating and a list of other teams receiving votes.
