Boys Lacrosse Top 15 poll breakdown: Parity shown in MIAA; dominant teams elsewhere

The Baltimore Sun

There was very little movement in this week's Top 15 boys lacrosse poll, largely due to the parity in the MIAA A Conference and some dominant public teams taking care of business in their respective counties.

Calvert Hall stayed at the top, but needed a 5-4 overtime win against No. 8 Severn on Friday to do so.

The next three slots were the only ones to have changes with No. 2 Gilman dropping to fourth after a 1-1 week that included a 10-5 loss to No. 3 Loyola on Tuesday. Despite an 11-8 loss to No. 6 St. Mary's on Saturday, Loyola still made the jump to No. 2.  Boys' Latin, ranked No. 4 at the start of last week, is riding a four-game win streak and leapfrogs over Gilman, now fourth, to take the No. 3 spot after two wins against ranked opponents last week.

No. 7 Hereford (11-1), No. 9 Glenelg (11-1) and No. 10 South River (12-0) have separated themselves among their league competition in Baltimore County, Howard and Anne Arundel, respectively.

On Tuesday, No. 15 Severna Park visits South River at 5 p.m., while the big showdown in the MIAA comes Friday when Gilman travels to Boys' Latin at 4 p.m.
