KANSAS CITY, Mo. – SCAD Savannah (Ga.) holds the No. 1 ranking in the sixth regular-season edition of the NAIA Women’s Lacrosse Coaches’ Top 10 Poll, the national office announced Tuesday. The Bees received eight first place votes and 120 total points. The seventh regular-season installment will be released April 12.

Women’s Lacrosse is in year one of a two-year process towards becoming an NAIA National Championship sport. Throughout the season, 30 women’s programs will fight for eight spots in the first-ever invitational tournament May 4-7 in Greenville, S.C. Eight regular season polls will be conducted, as well as a final and postseason poll.

Poll Methodology:

- The ratings committee is comprised of eight raters – two raters per conference/A.I.I./group
- Each conference/A.I.I./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.
- For additional details on the national rating, please consult the coaches’ manual – Men’s | Women’s
