Eagles top final VSN Girls Soccer Top 20


The McDonogh girls soccer program has had more dominant teams and seasons that the 2017 team, but this year’s Eagles’ squad was methodical, building momentum and winning the IAAM A Conference Championship and finishing the year as the final No. 1 in the 2017 VSN Girls Soccer Top 20.

River Hill, which suffered its only loss of the year to McDonogh, finished at No. 2 after claiming the 2A state championship and Broadneck climbed all the way to No. 3 with its 4A state title.

Archbishop Spalding, which spent much of the year at No. 1, slipped to No. 4 in the final poll after falling to Mercy in the IAAM A semifinals. Rounding out the Top 5 is No. 5 Sparrows Point, which captured its 5th straight 1A state title.
