The calendar has turned to May, and that means lacrosse teams around Western Pennsylvania are gearing up for the WPIAL tournament that begins later this month.
Some teams know the postseason is in their future. It's just a matter of where these teams will be seeded.
One such team that likely falls into that category is the Mt. Lebanon High girls lacrosse team. Owners of an overall record of 13-0 and standing atop Division 1, Section 1 with a 8-0 record, the Blue Devils appear to have an inside track to the postseason. The Blue Devils visited Oakland Catholic on Friday, and they likely will be 14-0 and 9-0 in section play heading into next week.
Still, Mt. Lebanon -- currently ranked No. 2 in Laxpower.com's rankings for Western Pennsylvania girls lacrosse teams -- have plenty of challenges facing them. The Blue Devils have three games next week, and all of them are against section rivals. First up is Monday's game with Shady Side Academy, which currently is ranked No. 5 in the rankings. The Indians are 6-2, and all of their games have been played against section rivals.
