2016 Boys Preseason Top 20: Team Number 1

Our 2016 boys lacrosse pre-season Top 20 countdown continues! As a reminder, these pre-season rankings were determined via a voting process that included various friends of MaxLaxOC with knowledge of lacrosse in the area. After the first full week of play, we will open the polls to everyone and let the fans determine the Top 20. The MaxLaxOC.com Top 20 has no bearing whatsoever on playoff seedings. The first US Lacrosse/coaches’ poll, which will factor into playoff seedings will be released the week of March 28.
