Huskies debut at No. 16; No. 17 Northeast-AA and No. 20 Chapelgate Christian are all newcomers to a poll that mostly stays intact


With a bevy of postponements last week there was little movement in the VSN Softball Top 20 as the Top 12 teams all returned to their previous spots. Three newcomers, however, are debuting this week, led by No. 16 Patterson Mill, which improved to 11-1 with a pair of wins. The Huskies lead the UCBAC’s Susquehanna Division.

Northeast-AA, which is holding its own in the very tough Anne Arundel County league went 2-0 last week and is in the poll at No. 17 and Chapelgate Christian, which is undefeated at 8-0 and on top of the IAAM B Conference, is in at No. 20.

Here is the complete Week 5 VSN Softball Top 20:
