While lacrosse is growing rapidly nationally and continues to thrive in upstate New York and New England, and the sport’s proud and traditional home base of Baltimore is still more than competitive, there’s no place like the tristate when it comes to lacrosse.

Not even close.

We asked for your take in our “You Make the Call” feature.

We presented’s first-ever Tristate Top 25 preseason team rankings here last week.

Now, we bring you an overview of those selections with a special “5 in 5” video presentation anchored by Joe Lombardi.
