Huskies return for the first time since Week 6


With the IAAM A Conference playoffs now complete and undefeated McDonogh secure at No. 1 in the VSN Girls Soccer Top 20, little shuffling took place in the Week 8 edition of our poll.

With its 5-0 loss to McDonogh in the IAAM A final, Archbishop Spalding slid back one slot to No. 3 and Sparrows Point jumped up to No. 2. River Hill held onto its place at No. 4, while Severna Park now rounds out this week’s Top 5.

No. 20 Patterson Mill, which has reach the 1A Regional final, returns for the first time since Week 6. The remaining slots in the poll are filled by teams which were ranked a week ago, with a little North-South movement taking place by several schools.
