The Lax Guys' National Boys' Lacrosse Rankings: April 26

15. Garden City (NY Sect 8) (6-2) (8) • The Trojans handled Great Neck South, 16-5, on Tuesday but were tripped up by Class B rival Wantagh at home on Friday despite three goals from Tom Gordon. A rematch between these teams could very well occur in June for the right to go to the state tournament. No time to wallow for Garden City, however, as they host Connecticut power New Canaan on Monday and then hope to close the gap in their series against #3 Manhasset in the Woodstick Classic on Saturday.

16. Summit (NJ) (10-0) (11) • Being undefeated is becoming a rarity at this point in the season, and the Hilltoppers are one of the few left. As noted by TGF, they have dropped this week even after picking up their best win of the season, over Madison 12-3. Unfortunately for Summit, it looks like their ceiling for this season may be around #12 due to the lack of quality competition they will face. Summit will continue to face mediocre foes this week with games versus Mendham and Chatham.

17. Loyola Blakefield (MIAA) (10-3) (NR) • The Dons had a huge past week at home, defeating archrival Calvert Hall, 7-6, and Boys’ Latin in front of a raucous crowd, also 7-6. They didn’t play their very best lacrosse but were able to do a great job on BL’s Carolina-bound attackman Pat Foster and dominate the ground ball game to upset the Lakers. Loyola will face two foes from Anne Arundel County this week, at home against St. Mary’s and at Severn on Friday afternoon.

18. Fairport (NY Sect 5) (7-1) (17) • The Red Raiders crushed Section 6’s Niagara-Wheatfield, 15-4, on Wednesday but could not pick up a win against high-powered Jamesville-DeWitt on Saturday despite three goals by Maryland-bound senior Brandon Saylor and four by Andrew Hays. Fairport will get a slight breather against Webster Schroeder in midweek action before traveling to #5 Canandaigua on Saturday in the upstate game of the week for this week.

19. Conestoga (PA) (10-2) (5) • The Pioneers winning streak was also broken up this week, as they fell to Springfield-Delco, 4-3 in overtime. However, they were able to rebound with a 16-0 drubbing of Harriton and a 8-1 win over Malvern Prep, who were able to grab a win over Haverford earlier in the week. 'Stoga will have an important game today against Radnor followed by away contests against Marple Newtown and St. Joe’s Prep later in the week.

20. Cold Spring Harbor (NY Sect Eight) (10-0) (18) • The Seahawks just keep rolling along towards their match-up with Manhasset on May 8. They cruised past Class C opponents Locust Valley and Clarke last week and face two more this week, as they travel to Floral Park on Tuesday before hosting Mineola on Friday. CSH should be 13-0 heading into the aforementioned game against their rivals to the west.

21. Avon Old Farms (NE West 1) (10-1) (25) • The Winged Beavers took care of business against some decent competition this past week beating Westminster 11-6 before hosting Kent and winning by the score of 10-7. AOF has a fairly easy week as they travel to play both Hotchkiss and Trinity-Pawling. However, a hell week looms the following week, when AOF plays both Brunswick and Deerfield.

22. Calvert Hall (MIAA) (6-4) (NR) • An up-and-down week for the Cardinals, as they started out with a loss against the Loyola Dons. However, they finished with their biggest win of the season over #11 St. Paul’s. The Cardinals start the week by hosting the struggling Gilman Greyhounds before hosting the up and coming Spalding team in a game which surely has playoff implications.
