Glen Burnie climbs six spots to No. 13; Northeast-AA and SPSG enter the rankings


The Glen Burnie softball team is off to an outstanding 9-1 start in 2019 and that includes a 5-4 win over then No. 2 Severna Park last week, which places the Gophers in a three-way tie for first place in the Anne Arundel County standings, along with the Falcons (now No. 3) and Chesapeake, which is up to No. 4 in this week’s poll.

Glen Burnie, which came in at No. 19 last week, have jumped six spots in the Top 20 and the Gophers now sit at No. 13.

Also entering this week’s poll are No. 19 Northeast-AA, another surprising contender in Anne Arundel County, and St. Paul’s School for Girls, the undefeated leader of the IAAM B Conference.

No. 1 Bo Manor remains undefeated at the top spot and Towson has moved into the second spot in the poll. Behind Severna Park and Chesapeake, Archbishop Spalding moves up one spot to round out the Top 5.
