April 9, 2019 — Top 10 for the week of April 7

A couple of games threatened to jumble up the Top 10, not the least of which was Manhasset’s one-goal defeat against McDonogh, but there was also the game the day before which saw Brooklandville St. Paul’s School for Girls (Md.) take McDonogh to overtime. Such is life in the nation’s most competitive girls’ lacrosse league.

Our honorary No. 11 Team of the Week is Saint Leo University, a team which is 13-0 this year, but heading into a stretch of games which will define its season, both in the Sunshine State Conference and NCAA Division II as a whole.

1. Owings Mills McDonogh (Md.) 9-0

Eagles’ schedule does not get any easier; host Alexandria Bishop Ireton (Va.) this Friday evening

2. Mount Sinai (N.Y.) 6-0

3. Cold Spring Harbor (N.Y.) 7-0
