Wins over St. Mark’s (5-2) and Middlesex (5-1) brings Milton Academy (13-6-10 up a spot to #8. The Mustangs look ahead to St. George’s (Wednesday) and Brooks (Saturday) this week.
#9 Loomis Chaffee (12-6-2) is on a roll, now having won six straight after wins over Cushing (3-0) and Choate (5-1). The Pelicans have their eyes on Williston this weekend, but before host Pomfret Wednesday.
Cushing will see Deerfield Wednesday and Pomfet Saturday. The Penguins did have a wild 7-7 tie with Lawrence Academy last week.
