Coming off a convincing 20-6 win at Stanford last Saturday, the lady laxers moved up two spots in the IWLCA poll to No. 10. This is the first time in the history of the program that Cornell has been ranked in the top-10.

In the latest computer ranking, the Red also comes in at No. 10.

Duke is the new No. 1 in the IWLCA poll after starting the season 3-0. Cornell played exceptionally well and defeated the Blue Devils in a scrimmage at Johns Hopkins two weeks ago. Ivy League rival Princeton fell from the No. 2 spot to No. 4 after losing a tough 15-13 game to Georgetown on Sunday.

Other ranked Ancient Eight squads include No. 9 Dartmouth, No. 15 Yale, and No. 19 Penn.

Senior Beth Calder scored three goals and added three assists for the Red Saturday at Stanford. Senior Jamiee Reynolds and junior Sarah Averson each added five points a piece in the win, and Carrie Giancola made six saves on 11 shots on goal.

Cornell visits Rutgers on Saturday at 1 pm.
