After making history last season and earning LaxRecords.com’s Team of the Year, Calvert Hall (Md.) starts 2020 as the preseason No. 1 team. Head Coach Bryan Kelly returns 25 players, including 20 who already committed to play in college.
Culver Academy (Ind.) starts the year at No. 2 and face four teams in the Top 25 in late March. Crossover games with Calvert Hall conference opponents give the Eagles a shot to make their claim for No. 1.
St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) and Chaminade (N.Y.) was almost a toss-up as to their preseason order, but the teams meet for the first time on April 8.
The bottom half of the ranking proved challenging this season. The consensus among region coaches is that Gilman (Md.) will be among the best teams in the MIAA A Conference this season and Landon (Md.) appears ready to take it to the next level under its second-year head coach Ian Healy. Seton Hall Prep (N.J.) was another team coaches mentioned high on their list to start the year.
Brother Rice (Mich.) plays some of the best teams in the Midwest this season and enters the year on a 23 game winning streak. Ponte Vedra (Fla.) is the defending Florida champion and boasting a lineup with seven Division I commits. The Sharks get a chance to prove themselves against two Top 25 teams this week with road games at No. 22 Gilman and No. 7 Boys’ Latin (Md.).
