Florida Rules the NAIA; Keiser #1 and Webber #3!

via the NAIA press release/website

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Keiser (Fla.) claims the No. 1 spot in the latest edition of the 2023 Men’s Lacrosse Coaches’ Top 10 Poll.

Poll Methodology

  • The rating committee is comprised of eight raters – two raters per conference/group.
  • Each conference/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.
  • The Top 10 is determined by a points system based on how each voter ranks the best teams. Each voter ranks 15 teams. A team receives 15 points for each first-place vote, 14 for second place, 13 for third place and so on through the list.
  • The highest and lowest ranking for each team (a non-rating is considered a low rating) is removed and the team’s ranking will be recalculated with an additional point added to each team for every ballot (including discounted ballots) that the teams appear on.
  • Teams that receive only one point on the ballot are not considered “receiving votes”
