BALTIMORE, June 4, 2013 — Teams in state playoff competitions jockeyed for position — highlighted by Manhasset’s defeat of Garden City in the Nassau County, N.Y., Class B championship game — in this week’s Nike/US Lacrosse High School Girls’ Lacrosse National Top 25 poll, released today by US Lacrosse. The poll appears as part of Lacrosse Magazine’s bi-weekly report on high school girls’ lacrosse at laxmagazine.com/hsg25.
The then-No. 6 Indians used their 14-8 win over the then-No. 4 Trojans to leap frog over Garden City for the fifth spot in today’s poll. No. 5 Manhasset continues to represent Long Island in the New York state playoffs with a game Friday vs. Brighton (N.Y.). This week also saw Marriotts Ridge (Md.) surge to No. 9 after winning the Maryland Class 3A/2A championship, knocking off then-No. 9 Century (Md.) in the final. St. John’s (Texas) won its last 15 games, including the Texas Girls’ High School Lacrosse League title, to jump to No. 23.
Unbeaten McDonogh (Md.) finished its season as the unanimous No. 1 after winning its fifth straight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland championship and extending its winning streak to 91 games.
