A couple of results in the Tri-State region made a significant impact on this week’s Super 25 girls lacrosse rankings, resulting in some changes throughout the rankings. But don’t expect any change at the top. McDonogh (Owings Mills, Md.) has now won 147 consecutive games, remaining the top team in the nation.
But the top five does look slightly different, as still-undefeated Manhasset (N.Y.) slides up to No. 3 after a solid win over new No. 10 St. Anthony’s (N.Y.). Good Counsel (Olney, Md.), looking strong since the the loss to No. 7 Roland Park (Baltimore) on April 10, move up to No. 4 after a pair of Super 25 wins in the previous week.
Summit (N.J.) remains undefeated, the lone unbeaten New Jersey powerhouse in the ranks, sitting at No. 5. But Moorestown (N.J.), now ranked No. 13, fell to new No. 12 Garden City (N.Y.). And Ridgewood (N.J.), now ranked No. 21, fell to new No. 20 Wantagh (N.Y.), as the New York-New Jersey crossover games resulted in impactful results that took a toll on the Super 25.
Darien (Conn.), owning a big win over No. 16 West Islip (N.Y.), return to the Super 25, with the Blue Wave’s only loss coming at the hands of a now-surging Garden City team sitting at No. 12.
Elsewhere, Long Island sees additional movement as Middle County (Newfield, N.Y.) bounces back into the Super 25 by way of a win over Northport (N.Y.), who moves down to No. 25. Other results in the Mid-Atlantic, including a loss by previous No. 21 Severna Park (Md.), created a pull effect bringing several teams out and others, mostly from Long Island, in.
This week will see one of the biggest games of the season take place on April 25 when No. 1 McDonogh hosts Good Counsel, currently No. 4.
