GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Virginia Tech women’s lacrosse team was picked to finish eighth in the 2014 ACC Women’s Lacrosse Preseason Poll, announced by the league office Tuesday afternoon. The preseason poll and team were voted on by all eight of the league’s head coaches.

2013 NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Champion North Carolina was selected as the top team in the league and the nation entering the season, as the top three of the ACC Preseason Coaches Poll mirrors that of the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association’s poll. Maryland holds the No. 2 ranking and ACC-newcomer Syracuse No. 3 in each poll.

The Hokies, who are receiving votes in the IWLCA Preseason Poll, will begin their season on Saturday, Feb. 15 as they travel to Harrisonburg, Va., to take on James Madison at 1 p.m.
