[PATRIOT MEN] Colgate was named the favorite in the Patriot League preseason men’s poll, earning 10 of 16 first-place votes. Bucknell's Brendan Burgdorf and Lehigh senior Kevin Strunk were named Preseason Offensive and Defensive Player of the Years, respectively.

Colgate enters 2011 hoping to erase the disappointment of last year’s ending. The Raiders went 5-0-2 in Patriot League play to secure the No. 1 seed but fell to fourth-seeded Bucknell in the semifinals of the league tournament.

The Raiders return five all-league players, including 20101 Patriot Goalkeeper of the Year Chris Miller.

Two-time defending champion Bucknell took second with four first-place ballots. American secured the third position, while Lehigh was close behind at No. 4 with the two remaining first-place votes.

2011 Patriot Preseason Poll:
Team Points (First-Place Votes)
1. Colgate 94 (10)
2. Bucknell 86 (4)
3. American 69
4. Lehigh 65 (2)
5. Lafayette 53
6. Navy 41
7. Holy Cross 21
8. Army 19
