JS-area team: 4 Dunlap (5-3).
Outlook: The Eagles begin the first IHSA-sanctioned lacrosse postseason in the nine-team Lockport Sectional. Dunlap earned a first-round bye and a regional final home game against No. 5 seed Lockport (8-5) on May 21 at 5:30 p.m. Dunlap is led offensively by sophomore Gage Black and junior Anthony Zowin, who each have 18 goals. Black also has 13 assists for a team-high 31 points. Goalie Tanner Johnson is 4-1 with 37 saves. The two teams were scheduled to play in the regular season, but were canceled by poor weather. They played last year at the club level, with Dunlap winning decisively. Among common opponents, both teams own victories against three teams in the sectional: Minooka (Dunlap 15-1, Lockport 5-2), Plainfield North (Dunlap 16-2, Lockport 18-10) and Lemont (Dunlap 13-8, Lockport 10-9).
Next: Lockport Sectional, either No. 1 seed Naperville Neuqua Valley (18-2) or the winner of 8 Plainfield North (2-15) vs. 9 Lemont (2-15).
