KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Missouri Valley ends the regular-season ranked No. 1 in the NAIA Men’s Lacrosse Coaches’ Top 10 Poll, the national office announced Sunday. The Vikings were the unanimous pick, claiming all eight first-place votes and 98 total points.

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.
