The publication changes their picks weekly and this week a local high school has made the Top 25!

You saw the excitement Monday night for he NCAA championship. Watching the two top teams go head to head for the college domination. It's intense. It's passion filled. It's downright nail biting. And all of that was over a team that wasn't even local!

Now imagine you're giving it your all for your high school team and imaging that the only people that may take notice are well, 1) your coach and 2) the other school you're playing against. Then, the unthinkable happens; a national publication takes notice. Suddenly all of your dreams are in front of you and you're on top of the world.

I have no idea if that's how Niskyuana is feeling right now. I mean, lets be serious, I just made all that up. What's not made up, is the fact that Nike/Lacrosse has them on their Top 25 list for the week.

How is this determined?

National Top 25s and Regional Top 10s for boys' and girls' lacrosse are decided by the staff of Lacrosse Magazine each week.

So where did the fair?
