A-B rises in boys' lacrosse Top 25 poll
Coming off wins over Dual County League rivals Lincoln-Sudbury and Westford Academy in the last week, the Colonials vaulted to No. 4.
The back end of the poll also has a distinctly new look, with three newcomers occupying the final spots. Mansfield (No. 23) makes its first-ever lacrosse poll appearance while Newton North and Norwell also came in the back door at Nos. 24 and 25, respectively.
