The time has come to close the book on the 2021 prep school lacrosse season.
While some teams in our top 10 finished strong, others faltered slightly on their way out of May. Still, most of the top teams only swapped places from our last ranking thanks to only beating one another. The notable exceptions are at the bottom of the rankings, where there was some leapfrogging during the season's stretch run.
Our No. 1 team is, of course, the undefeated juggernaut that is Deerfield Academy. A season-ending 14-8 victory over presumptive Independent School League champion Belmont Hill cemented this team’s spot at the top of the pyramid.
