Lawrence Academy #1 in Final USHR Prep Poll

Lawrence Academy (19-3-1) returns to the #1 spot in the final USHR weekly prep poll of the season.

This is the second time this season the Spartans have been #1 in the USHR poll. The first time was on the week of Jan. 16th.

Robbie Barker's squad, which finished last season 10-10-4 in NEPSIHA games (10-12-4 overall) has two more regular-season games, against St. Sebastian's (Wed.) and St. Paul's (Sat.).

There are three teams in this week's poll which weren't in last week's, meaning of course, that three teams got bumped.
