The Yorktown ’Huskers are the lone area team that cracked the first Under Armour/Inside Lacrosse high school power rankings.
The ’Huskers drew the No. 21 ranking. “You can see all the rankings here.”:http://www.insidelacrosse.com/page.cfm?pagerid=65840&cat=197317&hidecontent=yes&id=197318
Considering several teams the ’Huskers would have to beat to win a state title in Class A — including West Islip (No. 3), Syosset (No. 6) and West Genesee (No. 7) — are ranked well ahead of them, Yorktown appears to be perceived as an underdog to win it all — or even to make the state championship game.

Also gang, another note of interest. The Division III game between Cortland State and Western New England, which had been originally scheduled for Yorktown on Feb. 28, will now be played at John Jay the same day at 2 p.m.
There are a large amount of local players involved (especially on Western New England) and Cortland State’s Joey Morgan of Put Valley is a preseason D-III all-America candidate. Just check out both teams’ rosters:
