The Florida Lacrosse Showcase High School Top 25 for the Preseason!

#1A – St. Thomas Aquinas – the champs get the top spot until they lose it

#1B – Stonemen Douglas – no, they don’t actually have the horses for this but getting through last week is as big an accomplishment as anyone else will face this season.  We’ll worry about their true ranking after they start playing

#3 – Ponte Vedra – reloading for a run back to what they missed last year

#4 – Jupiter – underclassmen got their training under fire last season, will they finally get to the summit?

#5 – Bishop Moore – expectations are finally high, can they cope with it

#6 – Oxbridge – another big first round playoff win

#7 – Benjamin – tough to start higher due to the graduations but always seems to make me look penurious

#8 – Saint Andrew’s – maybe the lack of expectations from all of us might work in their favor this year.  A complete mystery to me.

#9 – Lake Highland Prep – surprise run to the finals but Coach Vander Meulen has huge shoes to fill

#10 – Lake Mary – the program is starting to feel Top 10 every year

#11 – Oak Hall – another team that needs to prove something this year, the talent is certainly there

#12 – Saint Edward’s – quietly building for the long run

#13 – Berkeley Prep – great season last year but a bit of a coaching hiccup in the offseason will be possibly an issue

#14 – Tampa Jesuit – a great regular season and a first round district dud.

#15 – Bolles – another sneaky good year.  Final eight run and took Lake Mary down to the wire

#16 – Hagerty – great regular season but schedule starts them here

#17 – Newsome – heck of a year, another that needs to up the schedule

#18 – Nease – another sneaky good team, with last year’s biggest surprise with the Jupiter road win.  Tough district foe make it’s hard to place higher to start.

#19 – West Orange – another team that has to get a better schedule

#20 – Barron Collier – lost a lot but has been solid for years

#21 – Pine Crest – I’m hearing others tell me they are ready to reassert themselves

#22 (t) – Gulliver Prep – throw a blanket over the next two

#22 (t) – Belen Jesuit – covered by the above blanket

#24 –  Saint John Paul II – another one that a number of coaches are talking up to me

#25 – Riverview-Sarasota – get’s the nod over Cardinal Mooney due to last year’s results

Just outside the Top 25
