Nike/LM HS Boys' Top 25: 'Pequa Still Chasing
For the second straight week, Massapequa (N.Y.) earned a first-place vote, but Haverford (Pa.) continued its hold on the No. 1 spot in this week's Nike/Lacrosse Magazine High School Boys' National Top 25.
To keep the heat on, the Chiefs needed to win a key Nassau County tilt, taking down then-No. 4 Syosset (N.Y.) in OT on Friday to stay unbeaten. In spite of the loss (or, likely, because of how close it was), Syosset moved up to No. 3 this week, with Darien (Conn.) and Chaminade (N.Y.) completing the Top 5.
Loyola Blakefield (Md.) was a big mover to No. 6, improving to 9-1 with wins over ranked McDonogh (Md.) and St. Paul's (Md.) teams in the past week. Duxbury (Mass.) and St. Thomas Aquinas (Fla.) both make their Top 25 debuts this week.
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).
