BALTIMORE, MD – The Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse team has jumped into the top five in both the USILA Coaches Poll and the Maverik Media Polls this week. The Blue Jays started the 2018 season ranked just outside the top 10 in both polls, dipped a bit after a 1-2 start, but have slowly risen during the course of their current seven-game winning streak, which is the longest active winning streak in the nation.
