May 9, 2023 — Top 10 for the week of May 7

I’ve noticed that, over the season, parts of the Top 10 can wind up being jumbled like a game of Boggle. In the last week, it was teams in the CIAC Class L, two of which fell out of the Top 10 due to some tough defeats. Of course, this week turns to the IAAM, a conference which has three out of the top five slots in our survey.

We have also an addition with a bullet at No. 10: San Ramon Valley is for real, folks. They have some prominent intersectional wins and have played brilliant offensive lacrosse this fall. Watch them if you have a chance.
