DICK'S Nationals Boasts Stacked Field For Season-Ending Tournament
Get ready, New York City. Some of the nation's best high school squads, including five of the top 10, will participate in the eight-team field from March 30 to April 1 at Christ The King High School.
Despite No. 1 Nathan Hale (WA), which was allowed to attend, officially declining the bid, as first reported by The Seattle Times, and No. 4 Memphis East (TN) denied by its state association to participate, the field is still stacked and will be headlined by last season's runner-up, No. 2 La Lumiere School (IN).
In addition to the Lakers, No. 3 IMG Academy (FL), No. 5 Findlay Prep (NV), defending champion and No. 6 Oak Hill Academy (VA), and No. 8 Montverde Academy (FL) round out the top 10 programs participating.
The field also welcomes three others: No. 17 Greensboro Day (NC), No. 18 Shadown Mountain (AZ), and Wasatch Academy (UT), which has been ranked in multiple weeks this season.
No. 2 La Lumiere (26-1) vs. Wasatch Academy (24-4)
No. 3 IMG Academy (26-1) vs. No. 17 Greensboro Day (33-3)
No. 5 Findlay Prep (30-3) vs. No. 6 Oak Hill Academy (39-4)
No. 8 Montverde Academy (24-4) vs. No. 18 Shadow Mountain (27-0)
