The second annual GEICO High School Lacrosse Nationals tournament field has been selected, and it includes teams from Connecticut, Indiana, Maryland Massachusetts, Ontario, Canada, Texas and Virginia.
It’s another week of four new teams entering the rankings this week. Half Hollow Hills East (N.Y.) makes its first appearance in the rankings, jumping all the way to No. 8.

Paul VI (Va.) gets the highest ranking after defeating Gonzaga (D.C.) last week, while Loyola-Blakefield (Md.) moves to No. 21.
