The USA South Athletic Conference men's lacrosse coaches have released their 2019 preseason poll. Placing atop the poll was defending Conference Regular Season and Tournament champions, Huntingdon College, led by Andrew Carey. The Hawks are coming off a 16-3 season and have yet to drop a USA South contest.
Huntingdon received 49 total points and seven place votes to finish at the top of the rankings. Placing second in the poll with 40 points and the remaining first place vote was Piedmont College. Rounding out the top-three was Greensboro College who collected 35 points.
The USA South welcomed Brevard College and Pfeiffer University last season. These two institutions are currently reclassifying from NCAA Division II status but this year are included in the preseason poll and eligible for regular season championship honors. Brevard and Pfeiffer still will not be eligible for USA South or NCAA Tournament play until full DIII membership is established.
The 2019 USA South Men's Lacrosse Tournament will feature the top-four seeded teams and take place at Callaway Stadium in LaGrange, Georgia on April 27-28 as a part of the USA South Spring Sports Festival hosted by the City of LaGrange and Troup County.
