February 26, 2018
Here are this week's local men's lacrosse power rankings: 

1. Maryland (4-0 overall record, No. 1 ranking last week) -- Head coach John Tillman earned his 100th win as the Terps rolled past No. 17 Penn, 13-6, Feb. 21. Tillman is the fastest coach in program history to reach that milestone. Freshman midfielder Logan Wisnauskas (Boys' Latin) scored a season-high five goals. 
Local Standout: Freshman Justin Shockey (Landon) won 11-of-17 faceoffs and grabbed two ground balls.
Up Next:  No. 3 Maryland has a showdown with No. 8 Notre Dame at 11 a.m. March 3.

2. Loyola (2-1, No. 2) -- The Greyhounds' potent attack kept rolling during a 19-5 demolition of Lafayette in the Patriot League opener Feb. 24. Senior midfielder Jay Drapeau led Loyola with three goals, earning a hat trick in consecutive games. 
Local Standout: Junior goalie Jacob Stover (McDonogh) led a defense that completely dominated Lafayette's attack.

3. Johns Hopkins (1-2, No. 3) -- The Blue Jays fell to visiting North Carolina, 13-11, Feb. 23. The 12th-ranked Tar Heels scored five of the final seven goals to seal the win.
