BALTIMORE, May 21, 2013 — Unbeaten McDonogh (Md.) won its fifth straight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland championship and extended its winning streak to 91 games to finish its season as the unanimous No. 1 team in the 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 Eagles finish as the nation’s top-ranked team for the fourth consecutive season after knocking off then-No. 12 St. Paul’s (Md.) in the IAAM tournament final, 11-8. McDonogh defeated eight teams ranked in this week’s Top 25. No. 3 St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes (Va.) also concluded its season with championships, winning the Independent Schools League and the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association.
With states like New York and New Jersey just beginning their playoffs, movement in the poll can be expected over the final few weeks of the season.
