Final Nike/USA Lacrosse High School Girls' National Top 25, Regional Top 10s

The final in-season update to the Nike/USA Lacrosse High School Girls’ National Top 25 acknowledges two dynasties from non-traditional areas.

Colorado Academy (Colo.) never moved from the top spot in the West region girls’ rankings, and there’s no reason to do so now after claiming a sixth straight state title. The Mustangs capped off yet another perfect season with a 14-3 win over Valor Christian (Colo.) in the CHSAA Class 5A final last Wednesday, and they haven’t lost a game since 2017. They nudge up to No. 20 in the national rankings.

Loyola Academy (Ill.) was at the top of the marquee last week. Upon further review, we’ve decided the Ramblers belong in top-10 territory. Previously held back because their perfect 25-0 came against an exclusively regional schedule, had the Chicago-area powerhouse been able to travel to the East Coast as it otherwise does every season, they would have had the opportunity to fortify their national position against teams like Stone Ridge (Md.) and Georgetown Visitation (D.C.) whom they have defeated in the past. Longtime coach John Dwyer said this was one of the best teams Loyola has ever had.

The rankings otherwise remain unchanged. St. Paul's (Md.) finishes in the No. 1 spot. Northport (N.Y.), St. Anthony’s (N.Y.), McDonogh (Md.) and Bayport-Blue Point (N.Y.) round out the top five.

Check back to in the coming weeks as we name our national and regional players of the year.
