On the even of the 2019 LA Lacrosse Foundation Postseason Tournament selections, boys lacrosse coaches in Los Angeles unanimously voted Palos Verdes the No. 1 team in the area, followed by Loyola, Harvard Westlake and Oaks Christian. Palos Verdes received all 28 first-place votes.

While the playoff seeding committee won’t base its decisions solely on the coaches poll, it is likely that those four teams will receive the top four seeds in some order when the committee meets this morning.

No. 4 Oaks Christian could make a claim for the No. 3 spot, as it holds a head-to-head win over Harvard Westlake, but that was a one-goal win in the second game of the season. A lot has happened since then.

The more interesting decisions for the committee could come at the bottom of the 16-team bracket, where West Ranch (15-2) and rated No. 12 in the MaxLax power rankings, was voted by coaches only into the No. 17 spot in the Top 25.

With the playoff brackets to be decided and release later today, here is the MaxLaxLA Top 25 coaches poll for April 28:
