Needham new No. 1 in latest girls lacrosse poll

We updated our statewide MIAA Top 25 poll this afternoon, and for the third consecutive week we have a new team holding down the No. 1 spot.

Westwood reclaimed their preseason ranking as No. 1 in last week's poll, but that lasted just 24 hours before the Wolverines fell victim to another loss, this time the Needham Rockets. With the win, Needham jumps up one spot to No. 1, marking the program's first appearance at the top in the two-year history of the poll.

Lincoln-Sudbury moves into the No. 2 spot, while Westwood falls two spots to No. 3. Andover (4) and Notre Dame of Hingham (5) round out the top five.

Making its return to the polls this week is Agawam, which backs into No. 25 despite dropping two straight to Western Mass. powerhouses Minnechaug and Longmeadow.
