US Lacrosse Magazine announced the early top 10 rankings for the 2018 women’s lacrosse season this week, with Boston College earning the #7 spot on the list. The Eagles are one of 3 ACC teams on the list (they are joined by Syracuse and UNC).

BC went 17-7 overall this season, despite only going 3-4 in the ACC. BC surprised everybody by dominating in the NCAA Tournament to close the season, scoring 20+ goals in all 3 regional and quarterfinal games to make it to their first Final Four. The Eagles then took a 16-15 victory over Navy to earn the chance to play in the program’s first ever NCAA Championship game. BC fought hard but lost the title to Maryland, who went undefeated throughout the 2017 season. The Eagles were led by Kenzie Kent, named the Most Outstanding Player at the NCAA Tournament (a first for a losing team), and Sam Apuzzo, who led the NCAA with 80 goals last season.

The complete rankings are as follows:

10 - Northwestern
9 - Princeton
8 - Penn
7 - Boston College
6 - Penn State
5 - Syracuse
4 - UNC
3 - Florida
2 - Stony Brook
