Top 5 Holds Firm in Nike / USA Lacrosse High School Boys' National Top 25

It wasn’t a good week for some undefeated teams and state championship favorites in the Northeast. Darien’s quest for a second straight Connecticut state crown ended in stunning fashion with a loss to Fairfield Prep, while Victor, Mt. Sinai and Penn Yan in New York are undefeated no more after late-season losses — thus causing a few shakeups in the national ranking.

The first CIF Southern Section playoffs in California caused some shakeup in the West region boys’ rankings this week, as Foothill-Santa Ana avenged an earlier loss to former No. 6 Mater Dei in the semifinals. That moved Foothill back into the top 10 and Mater Dei out, but those were the only changes, aside from some shuffling with No. 3 Loyola beating former No. 4 Corona del Mar and causing the Sea Kings to slide down a few spots.

The top team in the region, St. Ignatius Prep (Calif.), is up to No. 20 in the Top 25.
