POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 1. The Eagles are one of the most unbelievable stories in all of sports – a team unbeaten in its last 155 outings and the winners of the previous eight IAAM “A” Conference titles. It’s tough to see McDonogh slowing down this year, thanks to a long list of college-committed players who have been multi-year impact players for Chris Robinson. Andie Aldave (Notre Dame), Maddie Jenner (Duke) and Catie May (Maryland) enter the year as American Family Preseason All-USA selections, but McDonogh’s talent runs deep through the roster, including the likes of defender Margaret Donovan (Princeton) and goalie Julia Cooper (Stanford).

Final 2016 ranking: 2. St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes returns as one of the Mid-Atlantic region’s most stacked squads. The reigning Virginia Independent School Athletic Association champions will be led this season by American Family Preseason All-USA first-team attacker Zoe Belodeau (Penn) and first-team defender Mollie Miller (Georgetown). The team is deep across numerous classes and is riding the momentum of a tremendous 2016 season and brings great confidence as embarks on a tough schedule.

DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 4. Another of Maryland’s private school powerhouses, Good Counsel is expected to be among the very best again this season. Coach Michael Haight will look to two stars to lead the way: American Family Preseason All-USA selections Taylor McDaniels (North Carolina) and Halle Graham (Virginia). Good Counsel is also deep, with Division I-bound talent in the junior and sophomore classes, including waves of midfielders and a top young defender in Aiden Peduzzi (Maryland).

Notre Dame Preparatory School

Towson, MD

SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: NR. There might not be a team in the entire country with as many college committed-players as Notre Dame Prep and coach Mac Ford have on the roster this season. Attack standout Hannah Mardiney (Florida) and Sarah Cooper (Syracuse), the team’s top defender, will look to help Notre Dame Prep shake up the IAAM “A” Conference this season. Both players are American Family Preseason All-USA selections, along with senior defender Katie Railey (Virginia).

Alexandria, VA
20-4-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 3. Bishop Ireton lost some important contributors and leaders to graduations, including star Kelly Larkin (Navy). But Rick Sofield develops incredible talent and has plenty of it coming up the ranks again this season. Junior attack Lexi Ledoyan (Syracuse), an American Family Preseason All-USA selection, and senior Kayla Duperouzel (Yale) will be important offensive leaders for the Cardinals, who will play one of the nation’s most grueling schedules.

SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 12. The 2016 New Jersey Tournament of Champions runner-up returns with an outstanding roster of talent and the experience to enter the year as the team to beat in the Garden State. Hannah Cermack (Boston College), an American Family Preseason All-USA selection, returns after a huge season and fellow All-USA preseason pick Hailey Ricciardi (Dartmouth) will anchor the defense. Lillie Kloak (Virginia) is one of the players on the rise for Ridgewood.
07

Christian Brothers Academy-Syracuse

Syracuse, NY
21-0-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 8. Christian Brothers Academy used an army of hard-working, fundamentally sound players to sprint to a 21-0 record and the New York State Class A title last year. Though the Brothers lose some talent, they return another strong senior class, including standout midfielder Tessa Queri (Harvard). The team has a growing list of commitments and, last year, showed that it can beat the top teams from both Nassau and Suffolk counties long before reaching the state playoffs.

Mount Sinai, NY
18-3-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 13. The back-to-back New York State champs return with a roster that could help Mount Sinai make another run at the crown. Four American Family Preseason All-USA players should lead the way and make the Mustangs a tough matchup for any team: goalie Hannah Van Middelem (Syracuse), defenders Emily Vengilio (Syracuse) and Haley Dillon (Stony Brook), and Meghan Tyrell (Syracuse) at attack.

DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: NR. The Panthers are ready to take another shot at the state title in New Jersey after an incredible 21-1 campaign last year that ended with a two-goal loss in the New Jersey Group 4 North finals to Ridgewood. Allison Mastroianni (North Carolina), an American Family Preseason All-USA selection, is a dominant force for Bridgewater-Raritan and will be the go-to player this year.

Darien High School

Darien, CT
21-1-1
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 9. Darien returns a loaded senior class and should be the team to beat in Connecticut this season after winning the program’s fourth last year. More than ten seniors on the team are destined for Division I college programs. American Family Preseason All-USA attack selection Laura Murphy (Penn) will be one of the leaders for Lisa Lindley’s team.

Final 2016 ranking: 18. The Pioneers celebrated their first PIAA title in 2016, and some of the Philly area’s top players are back to help Conestoga make another run.

Baltimore, MD
15-4-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 7. The 2016 IAAM “A” Conference runner-up should field an excellent team again this season. The team’s losses last year came only to teams in the Super 25 by the season’s end.

POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: NR. St. Mary’s is drawing praise in the early season as a strong contender in the IAAM “A” Conference with a balanced roster and experience after some impressive outings in 2016. Leading the way will be one of the nation’s best midfielders, Shelby Harrison (Johns Hopkins), an American Family Preseason first team All-USA selection. Goalie Taylor Suplee (Penn State) is also one of the best in the country.
14

Garden City High School

Garden City, NY
21-1-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 6. One of Long Island’s top programs for both boys and girls lacrosse, the Trojans lost a lot of contributors to graduation after winning the state’s Class B title in 2016. The Trojans have talent and numbers coming back, thanks to an experienced and strong senior class and another impressive class behind it, including talented junior Jenn Madjid (Boston College) at attack. Garden City enters the year as the team to beat in Nassau County Class B.
15

Manhasset Jr.Sr. High School

Manhasset, NY
13-4-1
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 10. It was only one goal that separated Manhasset from a shot at the New York State Class B title last season, as the Indians fell 9-8 to Garden City in the Nassau County/Section VIII finals. Manhasset continues to bring talent up the ranks each year. Look this year for American Family Preseason All-USA selection Madison Rielly (Maryland) to spark the offense.
16

17-3-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 16. Glenelg surged to win the Maryland 3A/2A title last season and returns with a strong, experienced and talented senior class, but also a deep junior class. The numbers and the level of talent should help make the Gladiators among the very best in the Mid-Atlantic as they hunt another championship.
17

Marriotts Ridge High School

marriotsville, md
14-2-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 17. The Mustangs only losses last year came to McDonogh and eventual Maryland 3A/2A champion Glenelg, giving Marriotts Ridge one of the more impressive resumes around given the strength of schedule. Do-it-all standout Caroline Blalock (Louisville) will help lead the way for Marriotts Ridge this year.
18

Agnes Irwin School

Bryn Mawr, PA
19-6-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: NR. Agnes Irwin was stung by injury last season, as their top player, Hannah Keating (Harvard), missed the year and it impacted the offense. But Jenny Duckenfield brings back a large, deep roster filled with future Division I players in each class. Leading the way against another challenging schedule will be American Family Preseason All-USA midfielder Lila Barker (Virginia).
19

Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child

SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: NR. An injury to Oak Knoll star Ali Baiocco (Stanford) hurt the Royals last year, but she’s back along with two other American Family Preseason All-USA selections: defender Lizzy Doherty (Notre Dame) and do-it-all midfielder Diana Kelly (Notre Dame). Oak Knoll is expected to return as one of the toughest matchups in all of New Jersey this year, much like in 2015.

SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 25. Milton, the only Super 25 squad already taking the field this season, is already off to a 4-0 start. Despite significant losses to graduation, Tim Godby’s team is looking to return to dominance in Georgia after being knocked off in the state finals last year by Walton.

Manchester, MD
19-1-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 15. The Mavericks are three-time Maryland Class 2A/1A state champions and they look to keep that streak alive in 2017. It starts with star netminder Kate Brewster (Delaware), who has been a leader for Manchester Valley since she stepped on the field and is one of the top goalie prospects in the country. Junior midfielder Tayler Warehime (North Carolina) is one of the nation’s top juniors.
22

Smithtown High School-West

Smithtown, NY
15-3-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 22. The Bulls return with an experienced core of players that helped make a push at the Suffolk County title in 2016 and a strong group of underclass talent. Last year, Smithtown West’s only losses came at the hands of Super 25 opponents and they return talent at spots all over the field, with numerous defensive standouts.

SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 23. The Wolverines had the most productive offense in Suffolk County last season, scoring more than 14 goals per game. Middle Country features one of the nation’s top players in midfielder Jamie Ortega (North Carolina), an American Family Preseason All-USA midfield selection.

17-1-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Final 2016 ranking: 14. Following up on a 17-1 run last year and one-goal loss to end the year, the graduation of Kerrigan Miller could be felt by the Phantoms this season. But Ryan Gick has Bayport-Blue Point on a general upswing in recent seasons and will look to key contributors from last season to carry on the success of the past few years.
