The Power 10 / Keith McShea's weekly rankings of the best of the spring season

1 Clarence boys lacrosse. Huge win over OP Monday deserves top spot. Mike Silverstein belongs on the shortest of lists of best coaches in WNY.

2 Hamburg boys lacrosse. Dominating and deep. Tops in local rankings, undefeated vs. Western New York.

3 Orchard Park baseball. No. 1 large school despite falling to Clarence Friday in always rough-and-tumble ECIC I.

4 Lancaster softball. No. 1 large school's showdown at home with No. 2 Clarence was postponed from this Monday to next Monday.

5 Clarence baseball. Three-time defending AA champs edged OP, 2-1, behind Ryan Lawrence.

6 St. Joe's baseball. Speaking of always rough-and-tumble, No. 5 large school is best of Monsignor Martin Association.

7 Tonawanda baseball. Easiest pick for diamond pollsters is this unanimous small school No. 1.

8 Frontier girls lacrosse. Defending Class A champs attempt a season sweep of Lancaster today in rematch of last year's final.

9 Clarence boys track. Unbeaten in ECIC I, winners of ADPRO Relays at Sweet Home Saturday. Man, not a bad spring for Clarence, huh?

10 Bishop Timon-St. Jude rowing. In school's first Buffalo regatta in 37 years, novice four won title at West Side Rowing Club's prestigious John Bennett Invitational Sunday. Honor roll: Orchard Park boys tennis, Clarence softball, Sweet Home girls track.
