District 3 has released its second edition of lacrosse power ratings, and with a little under three weeks until the postseason kicks off, five Sentinel-area teams look pretty solid to be in the field.
On the boys' side, Carlisle comes in at No. 2 in advance of tonight's showdown with Hershey, which is right behind the Thundering Herd at No. 3.
Trinity seems fairly comfortable at No. 7, while Cumberland Valley is sitting at No. 15 in the 16-team field. The Eagles are getting a big boost from an opponents' weighted winning percentage that's way ahead of any other team in the district, and that will get another boost when they face No. 11 Ephrata Saturday.
Northern players and coach Jeff Miller stated the goal was still to make playoffs, although it will be a big jump from the No. 32 spot they fall at now. Mechanicsburg falls in at No. 38.
Undefeated Wilson tops the boys chart.

For the girls, Cumberland Valley gets a lift from its tough nonconference schedule, coming in at No. 4, although spots 2-6 are all tightly bunched behind top-rated and undefeated Exeter, who owns a win over the Eagles already.
Carlisle comes in at No. 13, but there's sure to be movement in that position, as the Herd faces No. 6 Hershey tonight, as well as Elizabethtown and State College before the season is over.
Trinity sits at No. 27, with Northern at No. 35 out of the 44 girls teams in the district.
