(FAYETTEVILLE, N.C.) - Christopher Newport University, under the direction of fourth-year Head Coach Carolyn Raveia, was picked to win the USA South Athletic Conference 2011 lacrosse title in the preseason coaches' poll. Last spring, the Captains captured both the USA South Regular Season and Tournament titles for the fourth consecutive season.
Christopher Newport received seven of eight first-place votes (49 points) as head coaches do not vote for their own teams in the balloting.
Greensboro College finished second in the balloting as The Pride received 42 points and the remaining first-place vote. Shenandoah University and Ferrum College rounded out the top-half of the poll with 38 and 30 points, respectfully.
The 2011 USA South Women's Lacrosse Tournament will once again be played at Springwood Park in Burlington, N.C. on April 15-16.
