Redondo Edges Oak Park for No. 1 in Preseason Coaches Poll

Last spring, Oak Park defeated Redondo Union 13-8 to win the US Lacrosse Southern Section North championship. Entering the 2017 season, area coaches installed Redondo No. 1 in the preseason coaches poll, with Oak Park a very close second.

Last year’s other two semifinalists — (17-4) and Agoura (14-5) — were voted Nos. 3 and 4, with picking up two votes for No. 1. Palos Verdes (8-7) rounded out the Top 5.

Redondo, which finished 15-3 last season (with two of the losses to Oak Park), received six first-place votes from 16 coaches who voted in the initial poll.

Defending champion Oak Park, which went 16-4 last season, actually received more first-place votes (eight) than Redondo, but the Eagles also were listed No. 5 by two voters and No. 6 by another. That was enough to allow the Seahawks, who received eight second-place votes and were listed no lower than No. 4, to slip into the top spot.

Redondo visits Oak Park on March 9.
