Boys Lacrosse: Big Shake-Up In National Public HS Rankings

(4-24-17)  It was an interesting week for #4 Victor Senior as they picked up their 50th win a row against Loyola Academy (Ill) 5-4 on Thursday. On Sunday the streak would end when Brother Rice (Mich) would come back after trailing at half-time 7-3 to pick up a 10-9 win to end the streak.  The loss would drop Victor to 10th in the SSN National Public HS Boys Lacrosse Rankings.

Darien remains #1 again for another week, a big change saw #2 Ponte Verde drop out of the rankings after a 11-9 loss to Lake Mercy (17-6) in FHSAA Tournament play.

Moving up to #3 is The Woodlands.

Two new teams entered the rankings, both undefeated Neuqua Valley (13-0) and West Linn (11-0).

Monday night was a big night for Neuqua Valley Lacrosse as  the Indian Prairie School Board adopted lacrosse as an official high school sport in District 204 and compete in the new Illinois High School Association sport, which will mark its inaugural season in 2018.

Two teams dropped out from last week’s rankings, #7 Centennial and #10 Santa Monica.

Baseball: SSN National Public HS Baseball Rankings

(4-10-17) The Top 2 teams remain in place this week and it looks like either one is capable of winning the SSN Public High School Baseball Rankings.

Both Buchanan and Shawnee continue to hold down the top spots and don’t look like they want anyone else to be a part of the battle for the #1 spot.  Shawnee, could easily be #1 after winning this weekend’s Bill Tipton Classic, one slip by the Bears and that could happen.

Making a BIG jump this week is Spring Hill, jumping from #7 to #3.  Two teams dropped a spot after losing this past week, North Gwinnett and Owasso.

Dropping out this week’s rankings is Baldwin.

One new team enters the rankings for the first time, Vandalia-Butler is off to an impressive 10-0 start.  The Aviators picked up four wins last week and outscored their opponents 34-0 in the process.
