Northeast Shakes Up Nike/USA Lacrosse High School Boys' National Top 25


Tournament outcomes from the Northeast Region made for wholesale changes in the most recent Nike/USA Lacrosse High School Boys’ National Top 25.

Mount Sinai (N.Y.) fell for the first time for the only change in the top 10, and Manhasset (N.Y.) made a big jump as the first team to beat the Mustangs with a domino effect following it. Wilton (Conn.) needed overtime to get by Daniel Hand (Conn.), but the Warriors’ 11th win in their last 12 games propelled them into the rankings.

It’s the penultimate week of the high school rankings, and there was a shakeup at the top of the Northeast Region with Brunswick School (Conn.) making the move to No. 1 after Mt. Sinai (N.Y.) suffered an upset loss to Manhasset (N.Y.) in the Long Island Class C championship. The Indians worked their way back into the top 10 with that win, Baldwinsville (N.Y.) cracked the top 10 for the first time and with state titles on the line this week, there’s a lot up for grabs in the final rankings of the 2022 season.

The Mid-Atlantic Region did not see any changes this week. Only No. 10 St. Augustine remains in action among the top 10 teams with only New Jersey and Pennsylvania left to complete state tournament play after Salesianum (Del.), a team considered for rankings, won its state title last week. The South Region also did not change because all teams ended their seasons before last week.

In the Midwest, the top five teams stayed the same. Dublin Jerome (Ohio) knocked off Hudson (Ohio) in the state tournament to change the second-half rankings a bit. Hamilton Southeastern's second straight Indiana state championship also pushed them into the Top 10 of the region. Michigan and Minnesota teams still have state tournament games left to complete their seasons.

The West’s first nine teams remained the same, but Jesuit Portland (Ore.) joined the rankings. The Crusaders did so by virtue of capturing their first state championship to end the season with only one loss.

5. Forest Hills Central (Mich.), 19-0

The undefeated Rangers are off to the state semifinals to face off against Grand Rapids Central Catholic Central (Mich.).

Michael Mattaliano added five points and Blaine Wertz notched a hat trick and helped out with faceoffs as well. Previous: NR
