Loyola Moves to No. 1 in Week 2 Coaches Poll

Losses last week by Palos Verdes and Westlake cleared the way for Loyola to take over the No. 1 position in the Week 2 US Lacrosse/MaxLaxLA coaches poll. The Cubs (4-1) received 13 first-place votes from the 20 ballots cast.

Harvard Westlake (3-1), previously No. 4, received six first-place votes after knocking off Westlake on Friday and moved up to No. 2.

 
The changes in the first two spots in the ranking set up a No. 1 vs. No. 2 clash Tuesday, when the Cubs visit Harvard Westlake in a Mission League contest.

Westlake (3-1) remains No. 3, and previous No. 1 Palos Verdes, though still receiving one first-place vote, drops to No. 4 after opening its season with road losses at Westlake and at St. Margaret’s Episcopal.

Agoura (3-1), which opened the season No. 10 in the preseason poll and moved up to No. 7 in Week 1, climbed another two spots to No. 5. The Chargers’ only loss thus far was a 6-5, triple-overtime decision at Harvard Westlake. Thousand Oaks (2-1), Newbury Park (4-0), Peninsula (3-1), Chaminade (3-1) and Mira Costa (2-1) round out the Top 10.

Entering the Top 20 this week are Cate School (1-1), which moved to No. 19 despite not playing last week, and Birmingham (4-0), which won 9-8 in overtime at Santa Barbara on Saturday.

Redondo Union (0-3) and Valencia (1-3) dropped out.
