Recruiting Rundown’s High School Top 25 – Week 7, May 3rd

1024x1024-1.jpg
It was a relatively calm week in the high school lacrosse landscape, as the only notable entrant into the Top 10 is La Salle (Pa.), who passed the eye test at Under Armour’s Banner Field in Baltimore on Friday. Top-ranked Landon (Md.) moved closer to an undefeated season with three more solid wins, while Culver (Ind.) and Darien (Conn.) have upcoming tests against notable regional talent.

While everything’s sorting itself out within the MIAA, things are more complicated nearly two hours north in Philly, where the top three in the Inter-Ac are battling it out. Ranked for much of the early season, Malvern Prep jumps back in as the league’s top team (for now) after knocking off rival Haverford  in the past week. They do, of course, have a loss to No. 23 Episcopal Academy (Pa.) from the 25th, but that’s negated by the win over public power Conestoga (Pa.) as well as EA’s two-game losing skid that includes a slip-up against Penn Charter. There are several big in-league games that will continue to bring clarity to the conference, so updates will follow in the coming weeks.

St. Sebastian’s (Mass.) enters the rankings, while New Canaan (Conn.) falls out.
