Roland Park Country debuts at No. 19; NDP ascends to No. 1

The Week 6 VSN Field Hockey Top 20 has a new No. 1 team as undefeated Notre Dame Prep, which has been dominant all season in the powerful IAAM A Conference has ascended into the top spot.

Part of the reason behind NDP’s rise has to do with Chesapeake-AA’s win over previous No. 1 Severna Park. With the win the Cougars moved up to No. 2 and Severna Park slipped back to No. 3.

Garrison Forest held its ground at No. 4 and C. Milton Wright climbed two spots to round out the Top 5.

Roland Park Country is a newcomer to the poll this week at No. 19 and St. Paul’s School for Girls is back at No. 20, after one week out of the rankings.
