Maryland's defeat of Syracuse this week helped the Terps move closer to North Carolina. (Greg Wall)

For the first time in weeks, North Carolina is not the unanimous No. 1 team in the land - Maryland went from sharing the No. 2 spot with Syracuse to stealing a piece of the Tar Heels' thunder at No. 1 by edging into the top spot in the LaxPower rankings. The Tar Heels, however, maintain the No. 1 spot everywhere else, which keps them alone at the top in the composite.

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.
