The 2012 High School season has become a war of attrition at this point. To succeed is not the point anymore. To survive is all that matters. This week's Under Armour/Inside Lacrosse High School Top 25 Power Rankings reflects this grind to the finish line. 

Garden City (N.Y.) remains atop the high school rankings for another week as they drive through the New York Class B playoffs. Plenty of competition ahead for the Trojans but they remain No. 1. Calvert Hall (Md.) moves into the No. 2 position following an upset in the Inter-Ac Invitational, with Episcopal Academy (Pa.) unseating Haverford School (Pa.). Those teams are No. 9 and No. 10 respectively this week. West Islip (N.Y.), Gonzaga (D.C.) and Fairport (N.Y.) round out the Top 5.  

Outside of Episcopal Academy, Ward Melville (N.Y.) also enters this week's rankings after beating Smithtown West (N.Y.) in the Suffolk Class A playoffs. They await West Islip in the county championships at Stony Brook.

Governor's Academy (Mass.) and Summit (N.J.) both fall out of the Top 25 this week. Governor's lost a tough one to Middlesex, which, with just an alright SOS, pushes them out for this week. Summit (N.J.) falls to the war of attrition that we discussed, but as the New Jersey TOC moves along they should make a case for a return to the rankings next week.
