Conestoga still No.1

Sorry La Salle boys’ lacrosse fan.
Your Explorers are great, but not great enough to knock the Conestoga boys’ lacrosse team from the top spot in Pompey’s Super Seven. If both teams advance to Saturday’s PIAA state final, La Salle will get the opportunity to move up.
But for now, Conestoga remains No.1, while La Salle is still second in my list of the top seven spring teams in Southeastern Pennsylvania, regardless of sport.

 Here’s a glimpse of the rankings that will appear in tomorrow’s Inky.
1. Conestoga boys' lacrosse. The high-scoring Pioneers have scored 10 or more goals in 17 of their 24 games of the season.
2. La Salle boys' lacrosse. Assuming both teams win Tuesday’s PIAA state semifinals, the Explorers will get an opportunity to avenge their season-opening loss to Conestoga.
3. Penn Charter baseball. What was I thinking? I originally thought Malvern Prep was the best baseball team in the Inter-Ac. Penn Charter proved me wrong by sweeping Malvern Prep.
4. Abington girls’ track and field. Talk about dominance. The Ghosts still managed to win the Class AAA girls’ state title even though they had a few mishaps at the PIAA state meet.
5. Radnor girls’ lacrosse. The Red Raiders have erased memories of their setback in the District 1 tourney final.
6. Spring-Ford softball. Since losing 7-6 to Owen J. Roberts on May 6, the Rams defeated their next six opponents by a combined, 24-3, score.
7.. Pennsbury boys’ volleyball. The Falcons were ranked fifth in the final Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association’s Class AAA top-10 poll.
Under consideration:, Central Bucks South softball, Malvern Prep baseball, Harriton boys' tennis, St. Joseph's Prep lacrosse, Swenson girls’ track and field.
