Maryland men’s lacrosse enters its 2022 season with plenty of expectations as it was named the No. 2 team in the Inside Lacrosse Preseason Media Poll, which was released Monday morning.
The only team ahead of Maryland is Virginia, the reigning national champion. The Terps are ahead of Duke, Georgetown and Notre Dame, the rest of the programs that round out the top-five in the poll. The next closest team in the conference to Maryland is Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights are at the No. 9 spot.
Maryland has already received its fair share of preseason accolades on top of these preseason rankings. The Terps had eight players named to the Inside Lacrosse Preseason All-American List.
The program is coming off a year when it saw a 15-1 finish and it was NCAA Tournament runner-up. Maryland will open its 2022 season against High Points on Feb. 5 in College Park.
