Men's Lax Slated to Finish Fourth in Preseason Poll

MADISON, N.J. – The Susquehanna men’s lacrosse team was selected to finish fourth in the Landmark Conference Preseason Poll, released on Monday. Goucher was picked to finish first, followed by Scranton and Catholic ahead of SU.

The Crusaders are coming off a program-best 11-win season and look to make more noise in the conference this spring. SU lost just four players from that 2011 team and return All-Conference goalie Jordan Daney (Wynnewood, Pal/Lower Merion) and former Landmark Conference Rookie of the Year Marcus Cheatham (Reisterstown, Md./Loyola). In addition, last year’s top two scorers – Luke Delavan (Madison, N.J./Madison) and Dustin Breakey (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Cumberland Valley) – are back for SU.

The Crusaders won 11 games last spring and earned a spot in the postseason tournament for the first time in program history. They enjoyed a 6-1 mark at home and won six of their final seven games.

This year, the season opens up on Feb. 26 with a 1 p.m. game at Lycoming.
