PAINESVILLE, Ohio—The Lake Erie College men's lacrosse team ascended to the top of the two major NCAA Division-II rankings following their win over former number one Limestone College.

This marks the first time that a Lake Erie team has been ranked first in the country.

The Storm was previously number three in the Nike/Lacrosse Magazine Rankings and fourth in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Rankings.

This season, the Storm has defeated then second-ranked Le Moyne College, 11th-ranked University of Mount Olive, 14th-ranked Belmont Abbey College and top-ranked Limestone College- all on the road.

The Storm opens up Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) play this week on the road at Ohio Valley University and Alderson-Broaddus University.
