While it was another relatively unexciting week in terms of changes within the rankings, the next couple of days will help determine a lot when it comes to regional bragging rights. In DC, Bullis moves up two spots to No. 14 after a semifinal win and will look to stand in the way of Landon’s hopes of an IAC title and national championship on Friday. Up in New England, Brunswick and Avon Old Farms will square off on Wednesday afternoon in a highly anticipated matchup.

Bumped out for a week, New Canaan (Conn.) makes a valiant return to the rankings after knocking off previous No. 12 ranked St. Anthony’s (N.Y.), with the Friars moving to No. 16 after falling to the Rams by two goals. St. Sebastian’s (Mass.) drops out of the rankings after just one week, dropping a tight contest to ISL foe Rivers School (Mass.) last week.
