Merrimack lax: No. 4

The Merrimack College men’s lacrosse team moved up one spot to No. 4 in the most recent USILA Division II Coaches Poll after the number one team in the country, Dowling, was defeated by Limestone over the weekend. Merrimack will open its season March 9 when it travels to take on No. 3 Limestone in Baltimore.
