ANNAPOLIS, Md. —  After putting together a 9-5 record a year ago that included winning a share of the Patriot League regular-season title, the Navy men’s lacrosse program has caught the attention of the national media and Div. I lacrosse coaches according to the preseason polls recently released.  The Midshipmen are ranked among the top 25 in the USILA/NIKE Coaches Poll, Inside Lacrosse’s Face-Off Yearbook and by Lacrosse Magazine.

The Midshipmen open their 109th season of men’s lacrosse on Feb. 6 against Air Force.

Navy, who opens its 109th year of varsity men’s lacrosse, stands 18th in the 2016 Preseason USILA/Nike Coaches Poll which dates back to 1973.  The Mids are No. 21 in the Face-Off Yearbook Poll put out by Inside Lacrosse and 15th in the Nike/Lacrosse Magazine Preseason Poll.

The Midshipmen, led by 2015 Patriot League Coach of the Year Rick Sowell, will face Ohio State (Jan. 23) and Richmond (Jan. 30) in a pair of preseason tune-ups before opening the 2016 season on Feb. 6 at home against Service Academy rival Air Force (12:00 pm).  Navy returns eight starters, including 2015 Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year and Third-Team All-American Chris Fennell, as well as its top four scorers including its entire attack (Patrick Keena 14-22-36, T.J. Hanzsche 20-13-33, Jack Ray 22-4-26).
