June 25, 2019 — Top 10 for the week of June 23

With the U.S. domestic season finishing out last week in Massachusetts, we now have a pretty good Top 10 on which we’re going to rely as the basis for our final Top 10, which will be released in July.

For our honorary No. 11 Team of the Week, let’s give a call to Langley (Va.), which won its first Virginia High School League state championship with a 17-10 win over Vienna James Madison (Va.) to win the Class 6A state final

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. Northport (N.Y.) 18-1

Season complete: The Tigers beat Baldwinsville (N.Y.) 10-8 in the NYSPHSAA Class A final

3. 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

4. South Huntington St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) 17-1

Season complete: Beat Hempstead Sacred Heart Academy (N.Y.) 9-7 to win CHSAA Class AA title

5. Cold Spring Harbor (N.Y.) 17-2

Season complete: Beat Cross River John Jay (N.Y.) 11-8 to win NYSPHSAA Class C championship

6. Summit Oak Knoll (20-2)

7. Severna Park (Md.) 19-1

Season complete: Falcons beat Timonium Dulaney (Md.) 10-5 to win MPSSAA Class 4A final; program’s 14th state championship

8. Hingham Notre Dame Academy (Mass.) 23-3

Season complete: Won MIAA Division 1 championship with an 8-7 win over a game Longmeadow (Mass.) squad

9. Eastport-South Manor (N.Y.) 18-2

Season complete: Beat Fayetteville-Manlius (N.Y.) in the NYSPHSAA Class B final

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

Season complete: 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. Langley (Va.) 18-4

Saxons repared for their playoff run by playing New Albany (Ohio), Springfield (Pa.) and Delray American Heritage (Fla.) during the regular seasons

Who’s out? None
