The Lax Guys' National High School Rankings for Boys' Lacrosse - March 15

1. Boys' Latin (MD) (1-0) • The Lakers retain the top spot in our rankings after putting away the Saint Andrew’s Scots, 12-11, in front of a huge crowd in Boca Raton on Saturday night. Boys’ Latin spread the ball well and had excellent face-off and goalie play by R.G. Keenan and Thomas Guarino, respectively. They will remain in Florida for a few more days to play Miami’s Gulliver Prep before returning to Baltimore, only to head to St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes on Saturday.

2. Haverford School (PA) (1-0) • The Fords jump up several spots after using a dominant first half to knock off the formerly #2 St. Paul’s Crusaders by a score of 13-9 on Friday afternoon in suburban Philadelphia. The offense, boosted by a plethora of talented juniors, clicked very well, and the longpoles were able to hold SP’s big guns Pat Powderly and Jeff Fountain to zero points. Haverford will travel to Loyola Blakefield on Tuesday before hosting another MIAA power, McDonogh, on Saturday afternoon.

3. West Islip (NY, Sect 11) (0-0) • First game: Sachem North 3/31

4. Deerfield Academy (MA, NE West) (0-0) • First game: Brunswick 3/27

5. St. Paul's (MD) (0-1) • The Crusaders drop three spots after falling to the host Haverford Fords, 13-9, on Friday afternoon. Weak face-off play and defensive mistakes, among other things, plagued the Crusies, but most expect they will practice hard during the next week before hosting Western Reserve Academy on Saturday at noon. On the following Tuesday, they will travel to Bethesda to take on the #14 Georgetown Prep Little Hoyas.

6. Lafayette (NY Sect 3) • First game: @ Manlius-Pebble Hill 4/6

7. Salisbury School (CT, NE West) • First game: @ Boys' Latin 4/3

8. Conestoga (PA) • First game: Owen J. Roberts 3/23

9. Garden City (NY Sect 8) • First game: Syosset 3/24

10. Chaminade (NY, Catholic League) • Massapequa 3/24

11. Calvert Hall (MD) • First game: Hill Academy 3/19

12. West Genesee (NY Sect 3) • First game: Jamesville-DeWitt 3/30

13. Ward Melville (NY Sect 11) • First game: Smithtown East 3/26

14. Georgetown Prep (MD IAC) (1-0) • The Little Hoyas easily cruised past Jesuit rival Gonzaga in their opener on Saturday, 14-2. Their next game should be much more difficult, as Georgetown Prep will host defending MIAA champion Gilman School on Wednesday. They then face four games in three days as part of the Jesuit Lacrosse Classic next weekend, including matches against top frontier programs Loyola Academy (IL), Regis Jesuit (CO), and Dallas Jesuit (TX).

15. St. Anthony's (NY Catholic League) • First game: Kellenberg Memorial 4/1
