Inside Lacrosse Preseason High School Power Rankings

Inside Lacrosse has released its first set of power rankings for the 2011 high school season, and - surprise, surprise! - no Michigan teams were present. In fact, no midwest teams were in the top 25, and every team came from one of just 6 states: Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, and New Jersey.

This comes as no surprise, and it's unlikely that any Michigan team can get into the rankings any time soon - Brother Rice notwithstanding. The Warriors don't kick off their schedule until the end of March (as with the rest of Michigan high schools - it appears the first game is March 22), but they play a few out-of-state teams (from Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Ohio), so a strong season could result in making the year-end rankings.

Talent may be down for Rice, as they've had a few years in the recent past with several Division-1 recruits on the roster, so we'll see how the season shakes out.
