The Under Armour/Inside Lacrosse High School Top 25 Power Rankings experienced many tectonic shifts this week. As the dirt underneath rumbled, established programs surged upward, previous top 10 teams fell back and ranked teams dropped out of the lineup.

Still, Haverford School (Pa.) remains No. 1.

The Fords emerged unscathed after a tough three-game series against Episcopal Academy (Pa.), Darien (Conn.) and Penn Charter (Pa.) last week. In fact, against the quickening adversity, Haverford is arguably playing better ball now then they have all year. They continue their reign atop the UA/IL rankings.

Rival Conestoga (Pa.) moves into the No. 2 spot this week. If all holds, these two Philly rivals will face off April 30 at a nuetral location.

Calvert Hall (Md.) has emerged as the MIAA's best team at this juncture, earning the No. 3 position thanks to an 11-0 undefeated record. New York Suffolk County Class A powers Ward Melville and West Islip settle in to the No. 4 and No. 5 spots respectively. Both teams are 7-0, with impressive wins over Top 10 or previous Top 10 opponents. The Long Island powerhouses will battle April 27.

Chaminade (N.Y.), Darien (Conn.), McDonogh (Md.), Salisbury (Conn.), Georgetown Prep (Md.) and St. Mary's Annapolis (Md.) all slip in the rankings slightly after various surprises losses in the past week.

Summit (N.J.) makes a big leap up the UA/IL rankings, moving into the No. 15 spot. An 8-1 Germantown Academy (Pa.) team and Nassau County's Massapequa (N.Y.) make their debut in the rankings at the No. 23 and No. 25 spots respectively.
