First, a note on the point total this week. One of the rankings was not released this week, so that affects to overall point totals in the Week 6 Consensus Rankings this week, but even without that there are not too many unexpected moves.
But there are a couple of items that caught my attention.
Delbarton (Morristown, N.J.) has only moved three spots this season, starting the year as the No. 23 team and now moving to No. 20. The Green Wave was 4-0 by the time all the rankings were released, but lost Thursday night (result came in as I was writing this), so it will be interesting to see how much they are penalized after barely moving up while winning.
One team that is riding the wave of wins is Haverford School (Haverford, Pa.). The Fords have won six-straight games, which includes wins over Culver Academy (Culver, Ind.), Boys’ Latin (Baltimore) and Malvern Prep (Malvern, Pa.). Haverford School dropped to No. 23 after starting 0-2 this season, but moves to No. 7 this week.
An argument can be made that Bullis (Potomac, Md.) should be ranked ahead of the Fords, based on their common opponent – McDonogh School (Owings Mills, Md.). Haverford School lost 17-9. Bullis lost 10-4.
There are four new teams getting a ranking somewhere this week, including The Woodlands (Texas) and St. Sebastian’s School (Mass.).
What is this? LaxRecords.com takes each of the five major high school boys’ lacrosse rankings and assigns a point value based on where each team is ranked. This provides a consensus on which teams are considered the best in the nation.
