Junior attackman Sam Dardani led Washington and Lee with five goals in the upset of Denison.


Only nine teams in the Nike/US Lacrosse Division III Men's Top 20 have seen action this spring, but No. 1 Salisbury (3-0) continues cruising after a 9-7 win over Montclair St., as does No. 6 York, which recorded its second win of the season over Eastern. 

Washington and Lee made waves this week. After a one-goal loss to York in the Generals' home opener, they have won two straight in one week, first downing Christopher Newport 14-6 and then upsetting then-No. 9 Denison 15-11. The victory bumped Washington & Lee up five spots to No. 11.  

Gettysburg also earned a jump in the poll after a dominant season-opening 11-4 win over Messiah.
