Air Force Lacrosse continues to move up the national rankings. The Falcons have won eight straight games, but even sitting at 14th place, they are far from done.

After playing as an independent last year, Air Force Lacrosse is happy to now call the Southern Conference home.

"We have an automatic qualifier for the NCAA tournament out of our conference. That really is a good thing for us because as of last year we would have needed an at large bid which is hard to get." said senior Christopher Allen.

"I think the guys are pretty goal oriented and they see that there is a chance for post season play if we can keep this up." said head coach Eric Seremet.

The Falcons head back to conference play sitting at 2-0 so far.

"We're pretty grounded as a team and very humble which is good so I think we can keep that going and take it as far as we want." said sophomore Chris Walsch.

Were striving for sixty minutes of a full game of lacrosse, we haven't played on yet. Now that were down the stretch and were getting into the Southern conference games that could really have a big impact." said Seremet.

Next up, the Falcons will head to Kentucky taking on Bellarmine Saturday.

"We're kind of just getting rolling which is a good thing for us because going into conference play being hot is awesome. Our task at hand right now is Bellarmine and were just going to go down there and take care of business and then move on to the next one." said Walsch.
