St. Ignatius makes top 25 in the nation

LaxPower's final rankings have been released and the St. Ignatius Wildcats have, once again, been named one of the Top 25 teams in the nation. They placed #25 in the Computer ranking and also were #25 in the Combined Coaches and Computer ranking. Only two other Western teams made the top 25. They are Arapahoe, CO and La Costa Canyon, CA who were 19th and 24th respectively.

Congrats to SI, its coaches, and its players. The Wildcats had a fine season at 21-1, defeating a number of powerhouse teams along the way!

This year, there were 3,366 Boy's High School Lacrosse teams in the United States. That translates into  St. Ignatius being ahead of 99.25% of all the teams in the country!

This is not the first time St. Ignatius has been a top 25 team in the country. Over the last six years St. Ignatius has been ranked among the top 25 teams in the nation on three occasions. No other HS program outside the East Coast has achieved such heights. Congrats to the Wildcats on this year's achievements and on their sustained excellence as a lacrosse program.
