For the second straight week, North Carolina is splitting the share of No. 1 rankings with Maryland, which continues atop the LaxPower computer rankings once again, upsetting the Tar Heels perfect slate of the non-computer rankings from Lacrosse Magazine, the IWLCA coaches and the Media. Both are still undefeated, as are Johns Hopkins (No. 7) and UMass (No. 9), which has a tough battle coming Tuesday evening against Northwestern at home. 

Each week, we will publish an aggregate of the four major rankings - The Top 20 Lacrosse Magazine, the ILWomen.com media poll, the IWLCA coaches poll and the LaxPower computer rankings. All teams that were either ranked or noted as 'received votes' in one of the polls is listed below.
