Sideline Swap / Recruiting Rundown Top 25 Private School Rankings: Week 6

blaxdelbartonPERLMAN7.jpgIt’s getting to be midseason in many areas of the country (except you, Florida – we know you’re almost done), so as parity takes place, there’s plenty of movement in this week’s Private School Top 25 Rankings. As always, the rankings are powered by, lacrosse’s marketplace to buy, trade & sell equipment and apparel.

Bullis (Md.) and McDonogh (Md.) captured big victories over the past few days and hold on to the top two spots, while Boys’ Latin (Md.) and Gonzaga (D.C.) bump up a position each to reward them for key league wins.
The Lakers edged out former No. 3 Calvert Hall (Md.) on Tuesday in a 6-5 battle, though the Cardinals stay in the top five due to a strong body of work. Staying in Maryland, Severn and Mt. St. Joseph find themselves in the Top 25 this week at No. 18 and No. 23, respectively.

Moving up five spots to No. 6, St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) has an unblemished record but will face their biggest challenge yet on Saturday against Delbarton (N.J.), a team that joins the Top 10 this week after being placed No. 21 in last week’s list. It’s the time of year where it’s not necessary to be tied to who won head-to-head battles, so Haverford (Pa.) moves in front of Culver (Ind.) and Georgetown Prep (Md.) jumps way in front of St. Paul’s (Md.), a team that has three losses this month with Loyola Blakefield (Md.) looming. 

Down south, St. Andrew’s (Fla.) drops out of the rankings entirely after getting upset in the first round of the playoffs by Oxbridge Academy (Fla.) and freshman Christian Tomei, who won the G3 Lacrosse / Recruiting Rundown Goalie of Week award. Oxbridge, however, fell on Wednesday night in OT to undefeated St. Thomas Aquinas (Fla.), a program that jumps way up to No. 16. In Texas, No. 19 Episcopal Dallas and No. 21 Dallas Jesuit on Friday night for area bragging rights.
