March 13, 2018 — The national preseason Top 10

Some girls’ lacrosse Top 10 lists are done through meticulous research. Others by gut feeling.

As usual, this one is done off the back of a napkin, which is just short of throwing darts when it comes to choosing teams.

As per usual, however, Owings Mills McDonogh (Md.) has a great senior class and a tradition that is continuing under interim head coach Nancy Love and her staff.

Here goes:

1. Owings Mills McDonogh (Md.) 22-0
2. Pittsford (N.Y.) 20-1
3. Towson Notre Dame Prep (Md.) 17-2
4. Glenelg (Md.) 20-0
5. Garden City (N.Y.) 20-1
6. Baltimore Roland Park (Md.) 10-7
7. Alexandria Bishop Ireton (Va.) 19-5
8. San Diego Torrey Pines (Calif.) 23-0
9. Ridgewood (N.J.) 21-1
10. Mount Sinai (N.Y.) 18-2
And bear in mind: Novato (Calif.) 25-1, Darien (Conn.) 20-3, Lewes Cape Henlopen (Del.) 15-2, Sykesville Century (Md.) 16-3, Olney Good Counsel (Md.) 14-6, Westwood (Mass.) 18-4, Summit Oak Knoll (N.J.) 21-5, Rosemont Agnes Irwin (Pa.) 21-5, Radnor Archbishop Carroll (Pa.) 24-1, Alexandria St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes (Va.) 27-2

In a couple of weeks, when (more or less) everyone has started up, we’ll do weekly Top 10s every Tuesday. Stay tuned and bookmark this space.
