Every Tuesday during the high school lacrosse season, USA Lacrosse updates Regional Top 10 and National Top 25 rankings to reflect the results of the previous week. Below are the Nike/USA Lacrosse High School Boys’ Regional Top 10 updates through games played May 21.

Brunswick (Conn.) lost a heartbreaker in double overtime at the Prep Nationals and remains just behind St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) at the top of the Northeast Region rankings. Unbeaten Mount Sinai (N.Y.) heads into the playoffs looking for a chance to finish off a perfect season. The Mustangs are just one of the region’s Top 10 teams playing for titles, including Top 10 newcomer Garden City (N.Y.), which is the top seed in Nassau Class B.

Lawrenceville (N.J.) finished its season with a win over Brunswick (Conn.) to capture the Prep National tournament championship and remain atop the Mid-Atlantic Region. They are followed closely by McDonogh (Md.), which took care of business with a convincing win for the championship. Georgetown Prep (Md.) and St. John’s (D.C.) jumped ahead of Haverford (Pa.), which fell behind Malvern (Pa.) after losing their championship matchup. A trio of MIAA teams trail just behind based on earlier losses and steady Radnor (Pa.) rounds out the Top 10 as it opens playoffs.

While most of the South Region has completed play, there were a few crucial games that helped determine rankings. Cardinal Gibbons (N.C.) cemented its No. 3 ranking by winning back the state championship that eluded it a year ago. The Crusaders join other state champions like No. 4 Highland Park (Texas), No. 6 Roswell (Ga.) and Florida champs Lake Mary and St. Andrew’s. Lake Mary finished as the lone unbeaten in the region.

Culver Academy (Ind.) retains its top spot in the Midwest Region even after losing in the National Prep Lacrosse tournament. Ohio powers Dublin Jerome and Upper Arlington opened what they hope to be long state tournament runs while Michigan teams like Brother Rice and Hartland are just starting playoffs with the chance to move up in the rankings with any slip-ups. Rockhurst Jesuit (Mo.) already claimed its crown, though it was tested for the title.

No. 2 Valor Christian (Colo.) set itself up for a state crown, just like St. Ignatius Prep (Calif.) took care of to stay atop the West Region. Valor already held off No. 3 Regis Jesuit for the second time this season, but they will face upset-minded Mountain Vista (Colo.) which entered the rankings on the strength of back-to-back wins over higher seeds on its Cinderella run. Torrey Pines (Calif.) also moved into the Top 10 after earning a measure of revenge in playoff action.

10. St. Thomas Aquinas (Fla.), 17-4

The Raiders played their best lacrosse of the season in April, but couldn’t carry that momentum into last week’s state title game. St. Thomas Aquinas lost to unbeaten Lake Mary (Fla.). The Raiders earned a spot in the championship after defeating Winter Park (Fla.) 16-5. The future is bright at Aquinas as two of its leading scorers, James Finch and Benjamin Kupstas, are underclassmen. Previous: 10

The top-seeded Celtics opened the postseason with a pair of dominant performances, combining for 52 goals in wins over No. 18 Marysville and No. 9 Avon Lake.

(The Celtics edged the Patriots, 15-9, back in early April.) Previous: 3

4. Upper Arlington (Ohio), 16-2

Like the Celtics, the top-seeded Golden Bears started Region 3 play with a pair of lopsided victories, beating No. 18 Westerville Central and No. 12 Westerville South by a combined score of 46-3. Should it get past No. 7 Centerville on May 23, Upper Arlington could be in for an intriguing regional title game against a Hilliard Davidson team it edged by a single goal just a few weeks ago. Previous: 4

5. Detroit Catholic Central (Mich.), 15-2

The Shamrocks ended the regular season with a remarkable four-game win streak. That included one-goal wins over two of the state’s top teams, as Detroit Catholic Central beat Brother Rice at home and Forest Hills Central on the road. With that first triumph, the Shamrocks earned their second Catholic League title, breaking the Warriors’ stranglehold on the event. (Brother Rice has won the league the other 24 times.) Previous: 5

6. Hartland (Mich.), 16-2

The Eagles shut out Belleville (Mich.) in their 2023 postseason opener.

8. Rockhurst Jesuit (Mo.), 18-0

Title games are rarely easy. Nor should they be. The Hawklets’ Lacrosse Association of KC title game surely wasn’t even though Rockhurst Jesuit had topped Blue Valley Southwest (Mo.) 17-4 back in late March. In their title game rematch, the Hawklets prevailed, 14-10, led by five goals and two assists from junior Colin Komenda, four goals and an assist from junior Luke McNamara and two goals and three assists from junior Jack Bichelmeyer. Previous: 8

9. Benilde-St. Margaret’s (Minn.), 12-0

The Red Knights prevailed in a much anticipated battle of undefeated teams, topping Chanhassen 13-8 Tuesday before beating Centennial on Saturday by a wider margin. In the former, BSM built a hefty lead after three quarters (12-3) by holding Chanhassen to a goal apiece in the first three quarters before the Storm rallied in the fourth. Gus Bell had a hat trick for the Red Knights while Dylan Parker and Hunter Payer added multiple goals. Previous: 9

10. Wheaton Academy (Ill.) 17-1

The Warriors were dominant in their regular-season finale, topping Maine South (Ill.) 21-4. Now, top-seeded Wheaton Academy begins its next chapter, starting with Geneva (Ill.) in the sectional quarterfinals.
