Severna Park elevates to No. 1 in VSN Field Hockey Top 20; last week’s Top 10 goes 16-2


Severna Park, with a 6-0 record and coming off a two win week, combined with a loss by previous No. 1 McDonogh, has moved into the top spot in the Week 3 VSN Field Hockey Top 20. It was a banner week for last week’s Top 10 as they posted a combined record of 16-2, with the only loses suffered by McDonogh and No. 6 Archbishop Spalding, both at the hands of then No. 3 Notre Dame Prep.

With its win, NDP jumped up one spot to No. 2 while McDonogh slipped back to No. 3. No. 4 Chesapeake-AA and No. 5 Garrison Forest round out the Top 5, as they did a week ago. Century, which was at No. 17 in Week 1, returns to the same spot after a one week absence from the poll. In addition, Catonsville makes its 2017 debut at No. 20.
