2020 NAIA Lacrosse Preseason Polls

Editor’s Note: Our NAIA team here at LaxAllStars — spearheaded by Nick Zoroya — is proud to release our 2020 NAIA lacrosse preseason polls for both men’s and women’s lacrosse.

2020 NAIA Lacrosse Preseason Polls

Men’s

  1. Reinhardt (GA): Can they make it four in a row? Coach Snow’s program is already a monster and recruiting incoming talent has the team only picking up more steam.
  2. Indiana Tech (IN): An impressive 2019 run with the addition of a solid freshmen class and a stud NCAA Division II transfer means the Warriors are for real.
  3. Cumberlands (KY): An absolute stud goalie and a well-balanced offense return. The question every year for Cumberlands is will it beat Reinhardt?
  4. Siena Heights (MI): If the team can stay healthy they have a chance to win the WHAC. Talent is everywhere on this roster, time to see it all come together.
  5. Lawrence Tech (MI): Having seen the 2020 team practice, I can say LTU is the real deal and this will be the best team it has ever had.
  6. Savannah College of Art and Design (GA): Can the defense step-up to match the powerful offense? A young team last year returns with a new conference home. Let’s see if the squad can turn heads in the AAC.
  7. Aquinas (MI): The best FOGO in the country returns, but the question is who replaces the two studs at attack that graduated?
  8. Benedictine (KS): Does the freshmen class add enough depth to help the Ravens make another playoff push? We will find out very soon.
  9. Keiser (FL): A well-balanced offense and solid goaltender, who will step up and start on defense?
  10. Madonna (MI): A lot of turnover from last year’s roster leaves a big question mark, but there’s still plenty of talent on this roster. Anything can happen when playing Madonna.

Women’s

Editor’s Note: We released our 2020 NAIA women’s preseason poll back in October. Here’s a quick summary of what to expect. Visit the 2020 preseason poll for some more information on the top teams heading into the season.

  1. Savannah College of Art and Design (GA): Returning champs will be tested early but have all of the pieces for another title run.
  2. Benedictine (KS): A February first game with SCAD will let us know early on if the Ravens are back for another deep run.
  3. Cumberlands (KY): A stud goalie in the cage with a majority of its points returning means the Patriots are locked and loaded.
  4. Keiser (FL): A young team grows up quickly and is poised to shake up the NAIA landscape.
  5. Lawrence Tech (MI): Returning almost their entire team from 2019, the question is will its out-of-conference schedule beat them up?
  6. Reinhardt (GA): Twenty goals a game last year is impressive, but can it beat Cumberlands?
  7. Marian (IN): A senior-heavy squad means it’s now or never for Knights.
  8. Tennessee Wesleyan (TN): All of the pieces are there, but can it win the close games this year?
  9. Indiana Tech (IN): The Warriors need to find an offensive identity and fast if it looks to stay on top of the NAIA.
  10. Concordia (MI): A young program with a few years of being seasoned now under its belts. If all goes well this is the year Concordia will make its push.
