Navy Club Ranked No. 1 in Nike/USL WCLA Division II Preseason Top 20


Navy Club, last year’s national runner-up, has been tabbed as the No. 1 team in the Nike/US Lacrosse WCLA Division II Preseason Top 20 ranking.

Navy Club returned to the WCLA ranks in 2019 after a 10-year hiatus and made its impact felt immediately, advancing to the title game while finishing the year with a final 9-4 record. The Mids lost to Loyola Maryland Club, 13-6, in the WCLA Division II final.

Two-time defending D-II champion Loyola begins the year at No. 2. The Greyhounds finished 14-1 overall with a season-ending 10-game winning streak in 2019. Senior attacker Kelly  O’Krepkie, the US Lacrosse Magazine WCLA D-II Preseason Player of the Year, is among the top returnees for Loyola.

Denver Club, St. Thomas, and New Hampshire round out the top five in Division II.

Nearly 230 non-varsity collegiate teams comprise the WCLA and compete under the US Lacrosse umbrella. The 2020 season will conclude with the annual Division I and Division II National Championship Tournaments, May 6-9, in Round Rock, Texas.

Preseason rankings were compiled by the WCLA rankings committee and will be updated weekly during the 2020 season. The full list of teams appears below.
