The rankings crew at ESPNHS had updated the national boys' lacrosse FAB 50 poll this week.
It was a tough week for the Massachusetts contingent as Duxbury, previously ranked fourth overall, was dropped to No. 21 following the Dragons' 4-3 loss to Irondequoit.
The MIAA's other former FAB 50 denizens Needham and Wellesley were dropped from the poll after opening week losses. The Rockets and Raiders, along with ESPN Boston No. 2 Lincoln-Sudbury, did receive votes in the poll, however.
Meanwhile, Duxbury will have a couple of cracks to move up in the FAB 50 during vacation week with the Dragons' Empire State sojourn to play 18th-ranked and defending New York champion Jamesville-DeWitt next Saturday.
