Two New Teams in Nike / US Lacrosse High School Girls' National Top 25


We have two new teams entering the high school girls' National Top 25, with Conestoga (Pa.) picking up a huge victory and Stone Ridge (Md.) getting its season started shortly.

For Conestoga (Pa.), Kate Galica scored five times and adding three assists, nine draw controls, three ground balls and five caused turnover to lead her team to the victory over then-No. 6 Agnes Irwin (Pa.). With just two starters left from a successful team, Conestoga is reloaded and looking to compete for another District I title.

Stone Ridge (Md.) will be led by goalie Emelia Bohi, who is committed to Denver in 2022. With a number of high-level Division I commits, Stone Ridge will look to climb the rankings early in its season. However, a matchup with No. 1 McDonogh (Md.) looms on April 12.

Northeast Top 10

Note: While this is the first in-season update to the Top 25, many teams in the Northeast have yet to begin play. The below breakdowns are based off preseason projections.

1. Manhasset (N.Y.)

The Indians are loaded and should again contend for a Long Island championship (if the game is played this spring). The perennial powerhouse is guided by one of the region’s best attacking tandems in seniors Emma LoPinto (Florida) and Grace Gately, a Villanova commit who had 40 goals and 25 assists as a sophomore.

2. Garden City (N.Y.)

Dave Ettinger has the unenviable task of replacing a legend in Diane Chapman as head coach, but Ettinger, who also heads the Garden City football team, has plenty of high-end talent to help him ease into the position. That includes senior Yale-bound midfielder/attacker Alex Hopkins and senior attacker Sydney Pappas (Villanova), who had 30 goals as a sophomore.

3. Darien (Conn.)

Senior captains Kate Bellissimo (Stanford), Shannon Dahlquist (Yale) and Nelle Kniffin (Colgate), along with junior goaltender Shea Dolce, provide a solid base for another loaded Blue Wave team. Darien’s roster also returns juniors Molly McGuckin and Ceci Stein (Michigan) from the 2019 Class L state title team, their sixth in the last seven years. Sophomore attack Chloe Humphrey is another to watch for Lisa Lindley’s squad.

4. Northport (N.Y.)

The 2019 season was memorable as Northport captured the New York State Class A title for the first time since 2011, and longtime coach Carol Rainson-Rose was named the 2018-19 Girls Lacrosse Coach of the Year by the NFHS. While the Tigers graduated several key cogs from that team, they have one of the region’s most lethal scorers in junior attacker Kaylie Mackiewicz (Duke) to lead the charge.

5. Eastport-South Manor (N.Y.)

Eastport-South Manor is another defending New York State champion, capturing the Class B title in 2019. Back from that 19-1 squad is senior goalie Katie Vahle (Arizona State) and two-way senior midfielder Celeste Forte, who committed to Florida.

6. St. Anthony’s (N.Y.)

The Friars’ lone loss two years ago came to Cold Spring Harbor by one goal, but St. Anthony’s capped its “Redemption Tour” by winning the CHSAA Class AA title. Michigan-bound senior Erin O’Grady is one of Long Island’s top goalies.

7. Mt. Sinai (N.Y.)

Maryland-bound senior Emily Lamparter is arguably the best goalie on Long Island. She’s joined by Molly Laforge, a senior midfielder who committed to Stony Brook, and seniors Amanda Dowler (LIU) and Christina Mastrorocco (Binghamton) as the veteran core of Al Bertolone’s stacked squad. Mt. Sinai also features future Division I defenders in juniors Alexa Carranante (Pitt), Delilah Mile (Albany) and Jordan DeBlasio (Syracuse).

8. Bayport-Blue Point (N.Y.)

The Miller last name at BBP is synonymous with girls’ lacrosse greatness, with alum Kerrigan Miller tearing it up at North Carolina after sister MacKenzie Miller was a standout at Belmont Abbey. The next in line is Maddigan Miller, a Stanford-bound senior who had 26 goals and six assists as a sophomore. The Phantoms finished 15-3 in 2019.

9. Cold Spring Harbor (N.Y.)

Although several players graduated from the team that won back-to-back New York State Class C titles, Cold Spring Harbor just reloads. Junior defender Grace Kiernan, a Fairfield commit with a high lacrosse IQ, and Ava Tighe, a 5-foot-10 junior attacker who is also strong at the draw, will lead the way for Danielle Castellane’s juggernaut.

10. Sacred Heart (N.Y.)

Sacred Heart will be anchored by James Madison-bound goalie Caitlin Boden, one of the top players at her position in the Class of 2022, as well as senior attack Emily Weigand, a Hofstra commit who is a four-year starter and captain. Others expected to make an impact include midfielder Kyra Browne, a junior three-year starting midfielder, Delaware-bound junior midfielder Julia Reagan, senior defender Julia Lawless (Vassar) and senior midfielder Elizabeth McDermott, a four-year starter.

Mid-Atlantic Top 10

1. McDonogh (Md.), 4-0

McDonogh improved to 4-0 with a hard-fought 10-8 win over Maryvale Prep on March 26. Maryvale (2-2) scored the game’s first two goals before the Eagles rallied, led by three goals from Maryland-commit Kori Edmondson, to take a 6-2 lead. Maryvale tied the score at 6 early in the second half, but Makena London’s rebound goal gave McDonogh the lead for good. Maryvale pulled within 9-8 with 2:49 left, but the Eagles clinched it with Edmondson’s fifth goal. McDonogh then used a 6-1 run to open up a commanding halftime lead on the way to a 13-5 win over a short-handed Gerstell squad on March 20. Edmondson had a game-high six goals. The Eagles also handled Roland Park 13-3 on March 24. Kemper Robinson had four goals, one assist, two draw controls and two caused turnovers over the two wins. Chrystina Bennett had five caused turnovers and three draw controls. Previous: 1

2. St. Stephen's & St. Agnes (Va.), 0-0

Tryouts don’t begin until April 5, the conclusion of the rescheduled fall sports season. The Saints’ schedule hasn’t been finalized as they seek opponents that do similar COVID testing to their twice-per-week protocols, according to head coach Kathy Jenkins, who is in her 45th season. SSSA had four groups play indoor, and the team was allowed distanced workouts in the fall in which the focus was on stick skills, conditioning and footwork, but Jenkins is looking forward to seeing the full team together. The Saints are led by 17 seniors. Captains are Cate Bradley (Vanderbilt), Rita Peterson (Stanford) and Sydney Southworth (Cal), and they will be charged with bringing together team chemistry quickly and bringing out SSSA’s best after a year off. Previous: 2

3. Oak Knoll (N.J.), 0-0

Oak Knoll won’t start practices until April 1, and the first game won’t be until April 19. It will be the debut for new head coach Gianna Spinelli, who was an assistant the last four years. She will lean on a solid class of 11 seniors, led by Greta Criqui (Brown) and Colleen Quinn (Richmond). Annie Burton (Brown) and Claire Adelhelm (Vermont) will have a chance to shine. Lily Ramsey, who will play college field hockey at Yale, is another standout, while Maeve Olson (Wesleyan) will be a key defender, and Annika Spoor is ready for a breakout year. Oak Knoll should have a solid attack led by Quinn and a deep midfield to carry it. Previous: 3

4. Conestoga (Pa.), 1-0

Kate Galica had a monster game in her high school debut. The sophomore midfielder had five goals, three assists, nine draw controls, three ground balls and five caused turnovers to lead Conestoga to a 16-10 win over then-No. 6 Agnes Irwin (Pa.) on March 26. Virginia-bound Rachel Clark had four each in goals, assists and draw controls, LaSalle-bound Melissa Hewitt had three goals and an assist and Chloe Brown added two goals. Freshman Kiki Liebezeit and Addi Bucher each scored their first goal of the season. Conestoga, which led 9-2 at halftime, has just two starters who were contributors on the 2019 team that won the District 1 championship. Previous: NR

5. St. Paul's (Md.), 3-0

A balanced team effort led by 11 goal scorers provided a 17-3 over Mount de Sales (Md.) on March 25. Three attackers had three goals apiece, and a pair of midfielders had two goals apiece. Sophomores Frannie Hahn and Lauren Steer joined Caitlin McElwee with hat tricks. St. Paul’s dished out seven assists. The Gators also won 11-4 over Gerstell (Md.) on March 26. Leah Warehime was outstanding in goal in both wins, while Paris Colgain anchored the defensive field players. Christina Gagnon and Josie Hahn balanced winning draw controls and scoring goals over the first three games of the season. Gagnon finished with six goals and three assists, and Hahn had four goals. Previous: 9

6. Moorestown (N.J.), 0-0

Moorestown won’t start in-person practices until April 26. Players have organized themselves to play winter league games that have run from January through this month, as well as attending local clinics when available. Head coach Colleen Hancox’s second full season since taking over for Deanna Knobloch will feature a focus on nine seniors, seven of whom are committed to playing in college, and a strong junior class of eight. Seniors Margaret Lawler (Ohio State) and Dylan Silar (Columbia), as well as junior Katie Buck (Rutgers) all played significantly for Moorestown’s 19-win team in 2019. Previous: 5

7. Georgetown Visitation (D.C.), 0-0

Georgetown Visitation is counting down the days until it opens the year on April 12. COVID protocols may force the Cubs to limit their normally loaded schedule to mostly league games, but they are looking to make the most of their return to play. Head coach Katie McMahon-Gates will lean on a 10-plus strong senior class led by Allison Baldwin (Stanford), Molly McGuckin (Yale) and Maeve Murray (Pitt). Junior goalie Megan Myers is a Denver commit. The Cubs’ ability to move the ball well and play unselfishly gives them a chance against anyone. Previous: 8

8. Stone Ridge (Md.), 0-0

Stone Ridge heads into the spring with high expectations based off a strong fall and winter. Coach Kristen Coleman McDaniel has one of the top goalies in the country in Emelia Bohi, who is headed to Denver next year. Julia Carr (Notre Dame) and Grace Muldoon (Richmond) anchor an athletic midfield. Caroline Conaghan (Tufts) has returned from a knee injury to bolster the midfield with her dodging ability, while Carr is following her two older sisters to Notre Dame, and Muldoon is a lefty with a chart-topping IQ. Boston College commit Michaela O’Connor headlines the defensive unit. On attack, Grace Slater (Fairfield) provides a proven scorer. Stone Ridge will jump right into the fray when it takes on McDonogh on April 12, likely without a single practice logged by then. Previous: NR

9. Severna Park (Md.), 0-0

Kaitlyn Hines’s team won’t start practicing until April 17. In the meantime, her girls are playing outdoor games together in the Howard County League that was extended into March. Severna Park also played in the fall and winter. Hines is hoping that the time together will pay off when the Falcons start official games in May. She is anticipating that Severna Park may be limited by COVID restrictions to playing schools in the South in Anne Arundel County without any further crossover. Talks of playoffs are still underway with still a lot of details to be worked out if they are to happen. Previous: 9

10. Agnes Irwin (Pa.), 1-1

Agnes Irwin lost to Conestoga 16-10 on March 26 despite four goals from Georgetown-commit Cate Parcells and two goals and an assist from Ohio State-bound Brynn Ammerman. Florida commits Carly Wilson (two goals) and Sydney Wilson (one goal) and Georgetown commit Colby Macaione (one goal) tallied their first scores of the year. Agnes Irwin had an 8-7 second-half edge. Paige Crowther made three saves, and Jordan Healy had four saves. Agnes Irwin had opened the year with an 18-2 win over Baldwin (Pa.). Previous: 6

McDonogh (Md.) remains No. 1 after a hard-fought win over Maryvale Prep (Md.).


South Top 10

1. Milton (Ga.), 8-0

Among the Eagles’ victories this season, six have been by double figures. Milton took a week off after its March 19 win over IMG Academy (Fla.) but returns to action March 31 against Blessed Trinity (Ga.). Maddie Dora, a future member of USC, has 21 goals, five assists, seven draw controls and five caused turnovers in her last three games. Previous: 1

2. Lake Highland Prep (Fla.), 12-0

The Highlanders impressive start has been boosted by wins against American Heritage-Delray (Fla.) and Ponte Vedra (Fla.).

The Wildcats pulled off a pair of stunning upsets, first defeating Cardinal Gibbons (N.C.) 19-12 on March 22 in the state quarterfinals, then defeating Weddington (N.C.) 14-8 on March 27 to claim a state championship. Sandwiched between the contests was a 15-9 win over Wake Forest (N.C.) to advance to the final. Talia Zuco scored five times. Previous: NR

5. Cardinal Gibbons (N.C.), 13-1

Following a perfect regular season, the Crusaders were upset in the state quarterfinals on March 22 against East Chapel Hill. Harvard recruit Caroline Mullahy racked up 40 goals and 77 assists in just 14 games. Sophomore Gracie Mullahy tallied 36 goals and 28 assists. Previous: 4

6. Weddington (N.C.), 17-2

The Warriors came one game short of winning a state title, losing to East Chapel Hill 14-8 on March 27 to finish as a semifinalist. Senior Jordyn Case (Stanford) scored 82 goals and added 53 assists to close out another incredible season. Virginia Tech recruit Kendal Williams added 70 goals for her senior season. Previous: 5

7. Ravenwood (Tenn.), 4-0

The Raptors have played a light schedule so far but remain unbeaten through four games. The team returns to action March 30 against Ensworth (Tenn.). Previous: 7

8. Blessed Trinity (Ga.), 9-0

The Titans continue to dominate, outscoring opponents 165-60 thus far. Clark Hamilton had multi-goal games in Blessed Trinity’s wins last week over Westminster (Ga.) and Walton (Ga.). Previous: 8

9. Vero Beach (Fla.), 8-1

Vero Beach had its perfect start to the season snapped on March 16, losing to Lake Highland (Fla.) 13-5. Alexa Vega scored two of Vero Beach’s five goals. Vero Beach returns from a two-week break on March 30 to play Hagerty (Fla.). Previous: 9

10. St.Thomas Aquinas (Fla.), 7-1

The Raiders’ only loss so far this year was on March 13 against Lake Highland Prep (Fla.). St. Thomas Aquinas picked up a big win last week against Pine Crest (Fla.). Ava Yovino has stepped up, scoring four times in STA’s win over Benjamin (Fla.). Previous: NR

Midwest Top 10

1. New Trier (Ill.), 0-0

The Trevians are loaded with top prospects like Macy Zaban (Florida), who had 49 goals and 24 draw controls as a sophomore, and Isabel King (Cal), who had 59 goals and 16 caused turnovers in 2019. New Trier’s schedule toughens quickly, as its third game is against leading rival Loyola Academy. Previous: 1

2. Loyola Academy (Ill.), 0-0

The Ramblers’ season ended far earlier than usual in 2019, but they will have a chance at revenge against the team that caused that early exit when they travel to New Trier on April 17. This talented team is led by senior Ellie Lazzaretto (Duke), who was the team’s top scorer as a sophomore, and draw specialist Maley Starr (Georgetown). Previous: 2

3. Upper Arlington (Ohio), 3-0

The Golden Bears are on a roll, and Cameryn Callaghan and Annie Hargraves are making hat tricks look easy. They’ve had three consecutive games of three-plus goals, including two straight in which both players tallied five goals, as Upper Arlington beat Medina (Ohio), Thomas Worthington (Ohio) and Loveland (Ohio). Previous: 3

4. Rockford (Mich.), 1-0

The defending state champs (2019) were in fine form to start the season. Five players (Mackenzie Delacher, Chloe Dunham, Chloe Holmes, Izzy Osborn and Katie Rodriguez) recorded hat tricks in a 21-3 victory over Spring Lake. Previous: 4

5. Prior Lake (Minn.), 0-0

With five returning starters from a 2019 state championship squad, the Lakers are a team to keep an eye on. In particular, watch for midfielder Payton Bloedow on the draw and Meghan McGowan on the defensive end. Previous: 5

6. East Grand Rapids (Mich.), 2-0

The Pioneers are off to a strong start, beating Mattawan (Mich.) and Forest Hills United (Mich.) by a combined margin of 38-4. Next up for East Grand Rapids is an intriguing matchup Wednesday against an Okemos (Mich.) team that went 17-2-2 in 2019. Previous: 8

7. Eden Prairie (Minn.), 0-0

With a tall, lefty, lights-out shooter in Josie Lillquist, a shutdown defender in Ellie Pearson and a superb athlete in Taylor Kotschevar-Call, the Eagles could contend for a state title in 2021. Expect some interesting tests in early May when Edina (Minn.) visits Eden Prairie and the Eagles head to Chanhassen (Minn.) days later. Previous: 6

8. Carmel (Ind.), 4-0

After a 13-7 opening win at Cathedral (Ind.), Carmel beat in-state opponents Bishop Chatard, Fishers and Penn by double-digit margins. Next up for the Greyhounds, who have 19 goals from Maddie McGarty and 12 goals from Hannah Kim, is an intriguing 2019 state title game rematch against Brebeuf Jesuit Prep. Previous: 10

9. Hinsdale Central (Ill.), 0-0

The 2019 state runner-up, whose only losses that season came to Land of Lincoln powers Loyola Academy and New Trier, are set to begin play April 21.

10. Noblesville (Ind.), 4-0

After three straight routs to open the season, the Millers handed Guerin Catholic (Ind.) its first loss on March 23. Noblesville, which beat Carmel, Cathedral and Glenbrook North (Ill.) way back in 2019, is a team to watch. Previous: NR

— Jonah Rosenblum

West Top 10

1. Colorado Academy (Colo.), 0-0

The Mustangs didn’t get on the field in 2020 after completing their second straight unbeaten season and wrapping up a fifth consecutive state title in 2019, but they graduated just two players who would have started last year and most of the nine returners played big roles in the past. Thus, it doesn’t appear their reign in Colorado will end any time soon. When the Mustangs get on the field at the end of April, they’ll seek to build on a 48-game winning streak behind senior midfielders Katharine Merrifield (Michigan) and Jessie Bakes (Brown), senior defenders Maya Rutherford (Michigan), Marin Bomgaars, Julia Hall and Rebecca Kerr (Denison), senior attackers Ella Freimuth and Kendall Smart and junior midfielder Maya Kendall (Darmouth). Previous: 1

2. San Ramon Valley (Calif.), 4-0

The Wolves are off to another strong start and haven’t suffered a loss since 2018. After a perfect 2019 campaign ended with a North Coast Section title, they went 5-0 last year before the pandemic shutdown and now have added four wins in as many games to open 2021. Marin Ruh tallied three goals and one assist in a 15-2 win over Carondelet (Calif.) on Saturday, while CoCo Wong added a goal and three assists. SRV plays Marin Catholic on Tuesday. Previous: 2

3. Scripps Ranch (Calif.), 1-0

The 2019 CIF San Diego Open Division champions opened with a 21-5 win over Santa Fe Christian (Calif.) on Saturday. Scripps Ranch last lost a game on April 16, 2019, against Harriton (Pa.), and the last in-state loss was April 10, 2019, in overtime against La Jolla (Calif.). The Falcons were 5-0 in 2020. Previous: 3

4. Cherry Creek (Colo.), 0-0

Despite their youth, the Bruins hope to make a run at a 23rd straight state final appearance as they chase their first state title since 2014. Cherry Creek only has a few seniors, but experience in the midfield, good team speed and an athletic new goalkeeper in freshman Charlotte Morton should help carry the team early while young players adjust. Top returning players include junior midfielders Lily Assini (Colorado) and Emily Collins and senior attacker Sophia Hashimoto. Cherry Creek begins practices April 26. Previous: 4

5. La Jolla (Calif.), 2-0

The Vikings opened last week with a 21-3 win over Torrey Pines (Calif.), then added a 22-3 victory against Poway on Thursday. Against Torrey Pines, Terra Evans had five goals and one assist, Luca Demio tallied five goals, Stella Wineman added four goals, one assist and five draw controls and Delaney Walsh registered one goal, three assists and six draw controls. In the win against Poway, Ella Plaskonos led with five goals, while Wineman added four goals and one assist and Walsh and Evans each tallied three goals and two assists. Previous: 5

6. Mercer Island (Wash.), 0-0

The Islanders won their 2019 state championship with several sophomores contributing, and now as seniors, they are hungry to defend that title two years later. Mercer Island didn’t get a chance to play any games before the 2020 season was canceled. Senior midfielders Annabelle Gersch and Hannah Tiscornia and senior attacker Emma Brodsky and junior attacker Molly Brodsky highlight the strength of the team. The Islanders welcome a new goalie and have gaps to fill in replacing two low defenders. Previous: 6

7. Regis Jesuit (Colo.), 0-0

The Raiders would have returned eight starters from their 2019 state semifinalist squad last year, but that group played just one game before the season shut down. Now they have some holes to fill as they prepare for a return to the field next month. Regis Jesuit will be led by a dominant midfield featuring four-year starters Cate Lord and Grace Weigand. Previous: 7

8. Amador Valley (Calif.), 0-0

The Dons relied on one star player to do a lot of the scoring during their 2019 North Coast Section Division I runner-up campaign, but now they have several players who can score. That should help as Amador Valley looks to contend as one of the state’s top teams. They are led by senior class that includes Maille Smith, Victoria Frentz, Kalena Johnson, Madelynn Riddle, Alex Lovelock and Maggie West. Previous: 8

9. Jesuit (Ore.), 0-0

The Crusaders remain the team to beat in Oregon after upsetting three-time defending champion Lake Oswego in the 2019 state final. Several key players from that championship roster return now as seniors, including two of the top three scorers in Sydney Landauer and Elizabeth Daigle, as well as defender Ziggy Berkoff. Previous: 9

10. La Costa Canyon (Calif.), 0-0

The Mavericks last year were looking to bounce back from a 12-7 finish in 2019 and they were off to a 2-0 start when the season shut down. They were looking forward to playing nationally ranked Bishop Ireton (Va.), but a limited schedule won’t afford those kinds of challenges amid a pandemic. Among the top returning players is Bryant signee Ariana McLean. Previous: 10
