For the second straight year, two players from the Lower Hudson Valley are ranked among the top 50-ranked rising seniors in the nation.
Syracuse-bound attackman/midfielder Joe Marasco of Somers is rated eighth and Johns Hopkins-bound midfielder John Ranagan of Yorktown checks in at No. 35 in Inside Lacrosse’s annual rankings. The list will be featured in the magazine’s soon-to-be released recruiting edition.
