Cardinal Gibbons’ boys lacrosse team pieced together an undefeated season to take the top spot in the final News & Observer area rankings. The N.C. High School Athletic Association 1A/2A/3A Crusaders placed three players on the 11-man All-Metro team.

The Apex boys, last year’s No. 1, finished No. 2 in the rankings and placed two players on the All-Metro team after a runner-up finish in the NCHSAA 4A title game. Jordan, East Chapel Hill and Broughton round out the top half of the rankings.

Seniors make up nine of the 11 boys lacrosse All-Metro selections. Only Ravenscroft’s Jamie Herakovich, East Chapel Hill’s Ian Levin and Gibbons’ Gannon Morrison are repeat selections.

Apex’s girls were the NCHSAA runner-up and end the year No. 1 in The N&O area. The Cougars took three spots on the All-Metro team.

East runner-up Cardinal Gibbons, which takes the No. 2 spot, and N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association runner-up Ravenscroft, ranked third, each put two players on the final team. Broughton and Wakefield round out the top five.

Five players are repeat All-Metro girls lacrosse selections: Athens Drive’s Madeline Bromley, Ravenscroft’s Olivia Aschman, Gibbons’ Shelby Scanlin and Apex’s Rose Redfoot and Mia Castagnero.
