The Lax Guys' National Boys' Lacrosse Rankings: March 16

16. Avon Old Farms (CT, NE West) • First game: @ McDonogh 3/23

17. St. Mary's (MD) (3-0) • The Saints won three games on consecutive days, defeating Virginia programs Collegiate School and St. Anne’s-Belfield on the road sandwiched around a 15-0 victory over the Hill School (PA). The competition will get stiffer this week, when St. Mary’s faces Landon on Friday at home on in its only game of the week.

18. John Jay (NY Sect 1) • First game: @ Brewster 4/1

19. Gilman (MD) (2-0) • The Greyhounds began their season by topping two perennial Virginia powers back-to-back. The first was a 14-12 victory over St. Anne's Belfield on Friday night, and the second was a 10-4 dismantling of Collegiate School in Richmond. The reigning MIAA champions have several new faces getting quality minutes, especially at midfield and on the defense. They will face off with non-conference rival Georgetown Prep on Tuesday in Bethesda.

20. Landon (MD IAC) • First game: Good Counsel 3/16

21. Summit (NJ) • First game: Randolph 4/3

22. Canandaigua Academy (NY Sect 5) • First game: @ Pittsford 3/30

23. Saint Andrew's School (FL) (9-1) • After cruising through their first nine games against in-state competition, untested with the exception of a one-goal victory over Lake Highland Prep, the Scots hosted top-ranked Boys’ Latin on Saturday and came away with a very respectable 13-12 loss. The schedule doesn’t get too much easier for Saint Andrew’s, as they will face out-of-state programs Fort Collins Unified (CO) and Brunswick (CT) on Monday and Wednesday before returning to Florida competition against Barron Collier on Saturday.

24. Delbarton School (NJ) • First game: Georgetown Prep (neutral site) 4/1

25. Smithtown West (NY Sect 11) • First game: Whitman 3/26
