May 22, 2018 — Top 10 for the week of May 20

While a number of teams have already finished their seasons, one prominent state — New York — is just getting started with its postseason. Four of our Top 10 teams will go through their brackets, and there is a very likely confrontation later this week between No. 10 Mount Sinai and No. 9 Bayport-Blue Point. Make sure you go see that one; it should be an absolute peach of a contest.

Our honorary No. 11 Team of the Week is LeMoyne College, who brought an NCAA title to Syracuse, N.Y. with their win in the NCAA Division II final over Florida Southern College.
