The Warriors knocked off Westwood -- the MIAA's defending Division 1 state champ, and the No. 1 team in ESPN Boston's statewide preseason poll -- in the season-opener on April 2, and have since followed with convincing wins over archrival Acton-Boxborough (19-4) and South Shore power Norwell (21-14). For its efforts, L-S comes in this week at No. 49.
Andover, coming off wins over Central Catholic and Framingham, move up three spots to No. 42 this week. Westwood, which was previously ranked No. 30, was promptly dropped from the poll.
Also representing New England on the poll this week are Connecticut powers Darien (20) and Wilton (43).
