With few matchups between the best teams in Eastern Massachusetts this past week, there has been little movement in the Globe's boys' lacrosse Top 20.
Walpole made the biggest jump this week, going from No. 18 to No. 12 after battling to a one-goal loss against No. 7 Needham.
St. Johnís Prep has re-entered the top 20 for the first time since late April. Last yearís Division 1 champions got off to a rough start after struggling to replace key seniors, but they seem to have righted the ship. The Eagles played well against No. 8 BC High in a 12-10 loss Tuesday, and took a strong 15-9 win against Lincoln-Sudbury Saturday. They are ranked No. 20.
Newton North is out of the top 20 after a three-game skid, taking losses against No. 14 Framingham, No. 18, Natick and unranked Brookline.
Several reporters and editors contribute updates, news and analysis to the High School Sports Blog.
- Bob Holmes: A Reading resident (Go Rockets!) and Boston College graduate, Holmes is the Boston Globe High School Sports Editor. We remind you now that his weekly picks are often made in jest so everyone just calm down when he picks against Everett for 11 straight weeks. Contact him at email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @GlobeHolmes.
- Craig Larson: A native of West Springfield (Leo Durocher anyone? Tim Daggett?) and Curry College graduate (a proud Colonel!), Larson is the sports editor for the Globe's regional sections: South, West and North, as well as a frequent contributor on the college beat.

- Zuri Berry: Berry attended the same high school as sports legends O.J. Simpson and Joe DiMaggio. (Guess which one is his hero.)
