The Palos Verdes Sea Kings finished the regular season with three victories over Top 10 teams last week, including a win over previous No. 1 Loyola. As a results, Palos Verdes (13-5) moved back into the No. 1 spot in the final US Lacrosse/MaxLaxLA coaches poll of the regular season.

Loyola (14-3) finishes the regular season No. 2 in the poll, with Peninsula (15-2) moving up a spot to No. 3 and Westlake (14-1), which lost for the first time on Wednesday, slipping one spot to finish at No. 4.

Crespi (10-7) remains No. 7, but Newbury (13-4) hops over Oak Park (9-7) to finish No. 8 by virtue of its win over T.O. and in spite of a head-to-head loss to Oak Park early in the season.
