Boys' Latin Stays Atop Nike-USL Top 25

April 2, 2013    4591 Views

BALTIMORE, April 2, 2013 Unbeaten Boys’ Latin (Md.) received all eight first-place votes to maintain the No. 1 ranking in the latest Nike/US Lacrosse High School Boys’ Lacrosse Top 25 poll, released today by US Lacrosse. The poll appears as part of Lacrosse Magazine’s bi-weekly report on high school boys’ lacrosse at laxmagazine.com/hsb25.

Two other Maryland schools have also caught the attention of the voters. Unbeaten St. Paul's climbed to the No. 5 spot in this week's ranking after receiving no consideration in the preseason, while No. 14 Hereford made the week’s biggest jump, bulldozing its way into the ranking on the strength of a 7-6 victory over Gilman (Md.) last week.
