Battling for the top spot in Howard County, the Mustangs move into the VSN Softball Top 20 at No. 13; Lansdowne climbs to No. 5; Catsonville jumps 10 spots to No. 10


Howard County is proving to be one of the power centers for softball in 2018 and Marriotts Ridge is battling for the top spot in the league. Coming off a 2-0 week, the Mustangs have jumped into the Week 4 VSN Softball Top 20 rankings, debuting at No. 13.

Of the teams that were ranked last week, Baltimore County’s Catonsville made the biggest move, climbing from No. 20 to No. 10, while another Baltimore County squad also made an upward move, from No. 8 to No. 5.

Undefeated Bo Manor and Chesapeake-AA continue to hold the top two spots in the poll and 10-2 Severna Park maintained its ranking at No. 3. Rounding out the Top 5 is No. 4 C. Milton Wright, which moved up from No. 6.
