Lacrosse Magazine has picked Colorado State to repeat as US Lacrosse Women's Division Intercollegiate Associates (WDIA) champion, but not without a strong push from Santa Clara. The Rams are ranked No. 1 in LM's preseason poll, announced Monday, followed by the Broncos, who boast LM preseason player of the year Renee Eligio.

Colorado State returns a strong goalie of its own in Annette Greenberg, who played a major role in CSU's championship run.

Eligio, a senior, led Santa Clara to its first WWLL championship in 2010.
