Lacrosse: No. 1 Milton dominating non-Georgia foes

The Mill Creek Hawks stayed atop the boys Class AAAAAA rankings despite an idle week thanks to spring break. No. 2 Centennial threatened to move past Mill Creek after beating Class A-AAAAA No. 10 Marist last Tuesday, only to fall to Tennessee power McCallie in double overtime. The Knights remain at No. 2 for at least this week. No. 3 Milton went 1-1 against out of state foes, falling to McCallie but beating Lake Norman (N.C.) to hold on at No. 3. No. 4 Lassiter was inactive last week. No. 7 Chattahoochee picked up a nice win over West Forsyth on Saturday.

In the boys Class A-AAAAA poll, Lovett moved up to No. 5 after beating Westminster, which slipped to No. 6. No. 7 Whitefield Academy also jumped No. 8 McIntosh after taking out the Chiefs 14-10.

Girls Class AAAAAA No. 1 Milton was impressive against Winter Springs (Fla.), Kent Denver (Col.) and Good Counsel (D.C.) last week, posting a 2-0-1 record. Milton resumes action against Georgia schools this week with a game against Roswell. No. 5 Chattahoochee and No. 6 West Forsyth also moved up in the AAAAAA poll.

Class A-AAAAA No. 1 Westminster notched a win over Lovett while No. 2 Cambridge scored a pair of wins over Lambert and North Forsyth. No. 3 Kell went 1-1 against teams from North Carolina while Starr’s Mill climbed to No. 7 after defeating Marist and Whitewater.

Your title was misleading as there is a huge difference between the Girl’s sport and the Boy’s. How do you do these polls? Some curious rankings given the history of the teams involved.
Obviously, I think Lovett is under-rated, even though they are extremely young this year. Coach Buczek’s Lions have been a dominant team year in and out, with a ton of all classification State Championships and playoff births for as long as anyone can remember.
