May 23, 2017 — Top 10 for the week of May 21

More playoffs are under way this week, and a number of states or commonwealths finish out play. This includes the three public-school divisions in Maryland, which means that Glenelg (Md.) is attempting to finish off an undefeated season this afternoon.

Our honorary No. 11 Team of the Week is the girls’ lacrosse team at Windsor (Calif.). The program suffered through a rough first couple of seasons — somewhat rougher than most. The Jaguars not only did not win a single game in 2015 and 2016, the team scored one goal or fewer on at least 13 occasions. But head coaches Aaron and Kristin Piotter got their team to believe in what they were doing, and completely turned their fortunes around. The Jaguars had a good enough record to qualify for the North Coast Section Division II tournament, which is a tremendous victory in and of itself.

1. Owings Mills McDonogh (Md.) 22-0

Season complete: Beat Towson Notre Dame Prep (Md.) 12-9 in IAAM Class “A” championship game; win streak now at 177 games

2. Ridgewood (N.J.) 19-0

Outscored three opponents last week by a combined score of 70-8; Maroons face Basking Ridge Ridge (N.J.) in Group IV North 2 semifinal today
