May 14, 2019 — Top 10 for the week of May 12

Well, there goes the neighborhood. Again.

Four out of our top five teams from last week’s Top 10 saw defeats in the last seven days, and it could have been four had it not been for McDonogh keeping it all together, facing a two-goal deficit in the final minutes.

Our honorary No. 11 Team of the Week is Regis University. The Division II side is undefeated and headed to the Final Four with a 16-14 win over Colorado Mesa, and meets Adelphi in a national semifinal this Friday.

1. Owings Mills McDonogh (Md.) 21-0

Season complete: The Eagles won their 10th IAAM Class A crown in 11 years, but not without receiving a major scare from Brooklandville St. Paul’s School for Girls (Md.). McDonogh was down two in the last four minutes before winning 5-4 in double overtime

2. Newtown Square Episcopal Academy (Pa.) 17-0

Churchwomen finish out regular season with Philadelphia Penn Charter (Pa.) before learning their PAISAA seedings

3. Rush-Henrietta (N.Y.) 10-1

The Royal Comets had a pretty good week, beating Brighton (N.Y.) 9-3 and Spencerport (N.Y.) 13-12

4. Orlando Lake Highland Prep (Fla.) 20-2

Season complete: Saved its best lacrosse for the end of the season, besting Delray American Heritage (Fla.) and then Palm Beach Benjamin School (Fla.) in the FHSAA final

5. South Huntington St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) 15-1

Friars have played extremely well since an early season defeat to Cold Spring Harbor; beat Manhasset in a Long Island showdown just last week

6. Manhasset (N.Y.) 11-1

Defeated Cold Spring Harbor 13-6 last week

7. Edgewater South River 12-3

Beat Severna Park (Md.) for the Region V championship after being 10-goalled by the same team only a few days previous

8. Cold Spring Harbor (N.Y.) 14-3

Seahawks need to turn around after loss to Manhasset to take on a good Hempstead Sacred Heart Academy (N.Y.) side this afternoon

9. Summit (12-3)

Hilltoppers have wins already over both finalists for the NJSIAA Tournament of Champions crown and can now add “Union County Champions” to their resume

10. Brooklandville St. Paul’s School for Girls (Md.) 12-10

Season complete: Yeah, it’s not often you see a 10-loss team anywhere near a Top 10 in any kind of national sports countdown. But this Gators team, part of the single toughest league in the country, put together a great run in the IAAM playoffs, knocking off Towson Notre Dame Prep (Md.) and Glenelg (Md.) Country to get to the final

11. Regis (Colo.) 20-0

Senior center Sarah Myres not only leads the team in goals (92), but in draw controls (77)

Who’s out? Delray American Heritage (Fla.) 10-6 loss to Orlando Lake Highland Prep; Severna Park (Md.) 9-6 loss to Edgewater South River (Md.); Spencerport (N.Y.) 11-10 loss to Pittsford (N.Y.) and 13-12 loss to Rush-Henrietta (N.Y.); Summit Oak Knoll (N.J.) 11-10 loss to Summit (N.J.)
