Nike/LM HS Boys' Top 25: Fresh Faces
Virginia's St. Stephen's and St. Agnes and Collegiate vault into this week's Nike/Lacrosse Magazine Top 25, the first time either has earned a spot in the rankings, though both have received votes. Collegiate improved to 19-0 this week and comes in at No. 19. while the Saints took a big win over then-No. 8 Georgetown Prep (Md.), which paired with last week's win over a Top 10 Landon (Md.), helped them to the No. 20 spot.
The third new squad this week was Lake Highland Prep (Fla.), which handed then-No. 23 St. Thomas Aquinas (Fla.) it's first loss of the season on Saturday.
At the top, it continues to be Haverford (Pa.) and Massapequa (N.Y.) at 1-2, with both continuing their unbeaten runs. Syosset (N.Y.) stayed put at No. 3, followed by Darien (Conn.) and Landon (Md.), which moved up from No. 7.
The Nike/LM Top 25 for boys' and girls' lacrosse are voted on by the staff of Lacrosse Magazine and select high school coaches each week. Follow weekly polls and updates at LaxMagazine.com/HSB25(boys) and LaxMagazine.com/HSG25 (girls).
