1. Darien (Conn.), 22-0

For the first time in the program’s rich history, Darien (Conn.) finished a season undefeated after knocking off rival New Canaan (Conn.) in the CIAC Class L final. It will go down as the best Blue Wave team ever, a squad led by Chloe Humphrey that had eight All-Americans and 17 Division I college recruits. Of those 17, seven are back next year, including Duke commits Sadie Stafford in the midfield and Hope Schoudel in the cage. Previous: 1

2. Bayport-Blue Point (N.Y.), 20-0

The Phantoms’ perfect season ended with a first-ever New York State Class C championship. Goaltender Felicia Giglio (Navy), midfielder Keira Rooney (Florida) and Mikaela Mooney (Albany) were part of a special senior class that made history. Rising senior midfielder Kayla Vazquez (Rider) will hope to add more hardware next year. Previous: 2

3. St. Anthony’s (N.Y.), 16-2

The Friars celebrated a fourth straight CHSAA Class AA championship and the scary thing is the bulk of this incredibly deep and talented team returns, including rising seniors in Tess Calabria (North Carolina) on attack, Meg Kenny (North Carolina) in midfield, Amanda Paci (Duke) on defense and goaltender Lexi Zenk (North Carolina). Previous: 3

4. Sacred Heart (Conn.), 16-1

It was a banner season for the Tigers, who won the Prep Invitational. Kelly Haggerty, a Fairfield-bound senior attack, and senior goaltender Laura O’Connor (Yale) were named All-Americans. There’s a solid returning core, led by rising senior midfielders Payton Sfreddo (Virginia), Kaitlin Robinson (Duke), Maggie Bacigalupo (Princeton), Ava Lillis (Davidson), rising senior attack Wowie Walker and defender Olivia Leahy as well as rising juniors Charley Bacigalupo and Daphne Fallon. Previous: 4

5. New Canaan (Conn.), 18-4

The Rams were closer than anyone to handing Darien (Conn.) its lone defeat of the season, but fell by just one goal in the state final. New Canaan (Conn.) will certainly make a run at a 12th state championship game appearance next year, led by Devon Russell (Boston College) and Lexi Tully (Cornell)  — a pair of rising senior midfielders — as well as rising junior Ceci Patterson in the cage. All three earned All-American honors. Previous: 5

6. Victor (N.Y.), 17-4

Victor (N.Y.) captured a second straight New York State Class B championship, beating Garden City (N.Y.) 8-6 in the final. While Binghamton-bound defender Maryn Savage, who was named first-team Monroe County defense, graduates, Devin Livingston (Maryland), a rising senior who was named first-team midfield, rising freshman Allie Pisano, a first-team attack selection and rising senior Ryann Savage (Siena), a first-team defense, are all back to make a run at a third straight state title. Previous: 8

7. Fairport (N.Y.), 19-2

The Red Raiders won a first New York State Class A title, defeating Massapequa (N.Y.) in overtime. Jaelyne Twomey made 19 saves in the title game, her last for Fairport (N.Y.) before heading to Ohio State. Midfielder Ava Peers is also heading to Louisville, but there’s a strong group returning led by a trio of attackers in rising senior Katie Mallaber (Notre Dame) and rising juniors Lilly Kondas and Ella Peers. Previous: 7

8. Skaneateles (N.Y.), 20-1

The Lakers celebrated a fifth New York State championship, defeating Bronxville (N.Y.), 11-6, to win the New York State Class D title. Senior midfielder Julia O’Connor drove the bus for Skaneateles (N.Y.) before heading to North Carolina in the fall. The Lakers will also miss midfielders Kathryn Morrissey (Notre Dame) and Bella Brogan (Lehigh), as well as goaltender Emily Evans (James Madison). Expect rising senior Anasofia Cirincione (Albany) and rising junior Paige Willard to help anchor the attack next year. Previous: 8

9. Wilton (Conn.), 15-4

Wilton (Conn.) fell to New Canaan, 10-7, in the CIAC Class L semifinals, closing the door on a solid season for a team that was third best behind two of the top teams in the country in Darien and New Canaan. Molly Snow, the Lehigh-bound attacker, and midfielder Isabel DiNanno (Michigan) both earned All-American honors. Addison Pattillo (North Carolina), a rising senior attacker, was also named an All-American and will guide the Warriors next season, along with rising senior midfielder Ashleigh Masterson (California) and defenders Josie Goldman, a rising senior, and rising junior Mia Sommer. Previous: 9

10. Garden City (N.Y.), 17-4

The Trojans made it to the New York State Class B championship game, but suffered a two-goal loss to Victor (N.Y.).

1. McDonogh (Md.), 20-1

Taylor Cummings stepped down as Eagles head coach after the top seed McDonogh captured their first IAAM A Conference championship since 2019 with a 13-8 win over second-seeded St. Paul’s (Md.). Unbeaten this season in the toughest conference in the country, McDonogh’s only loss this year came at the hands of non-conference foe Georgetown Visitation (D.C.) in the first half of the season. They then streaked to the title. They outscored their final eight opponents by 9.6 goals per game. McDonogh will return a strong base led by Kate Levy (UNC), Sophia Trahan (Virginia Tech) Amanda Lawson (Stanford), Remi Schaller (Michigan) and Lela Greene (Penn). Previous: 1

2. St. Paul’s (Md.), 18-3

After a decisive 16-4 win over third-seeded Maryvale (Md.), the two-time defending champion Gators fell to McDonogh in the championship game. The Gators lost twice to McDonogh and dropped a narrow decision to national No. 1 Darien (Conn.) that was the marquee matchup in a challenging non-conference schedule. They won seven straight before falling in the title game. Natalie Shurtleff (58 goals, 17 assists, 68 draw controls), Lauren Steer (43G, 32A, 28 ground balls) and Frannie Hahn (48G, 52A) led the Gators all year. Returning to lead next year after the loss of five senior starters will be defender Kira Balis (Clemson) and goalie Susan Radabaugh (Syracuse). Previous: 2

3. Maryvale (Md.), 16-3

The third-seeded Lions lost in the IAAM A Conference semifinals, their deepest run since reaching the title game in 2012. Maryvale fell to St. Paul’s, 16-4, after rattling off 10 straight wins. Maryvale took a big step forward this year with a pair of one-goal losses to McDonogh and St. Paul’s being the only marks against them in the regular season as they enjoyed a breakthrough season. Maryvale thrived with a balanced attack with five players with 25 goals or more led by Cayden Reese’s 34 goals. Sam Paradise (33 goals, 56 draw controls), Noel Cumberland (27 goals, 35 DC) and Abby Francioli (54% save rate) were named all-league from a team that had nine senior starters Ryan Kinkead (Georgetown) highlights the group of returners. Previous: 3

4. Archbishop Carroll (Pa.), 23-1

The Patriots dominated their competition in running to a third straight AA state tournament. Carroll is the first team in the state to win three consecutive state crowns and the first team with four championships overall. Ava Bleckley scored five goals and had five draw controls in the 17-5 win over Twin Valley (Pa.) for the championship. Chloe Bleckley had a hat trick and an assist, and Lainey Straub finished with a hat trick and two assists while Machaela Henry won four draws. Bridget Robinson made three saves. Ava Bleckley (JMU), Straub (Penn State) and Megan Sheridan (Pitt) graduate but much of the Patriots firepower will be back to go four-for-four. Previous: 4

5. Glenelg Country (Md.), 14-4

The fourth-seeded Dragons fell in the IAAM A Conference semifinals to McDonogh, 13-4, to close another strong season. The game marked the conclusion of Paige Walton’s 24-year coaching tenure with the Dragons, which she helped to steer out of the C Conference, through the B Conference and up to the A Conference in 2017. Glenelg won its first 10 games of the year while proving they could overcome losing a huge senior class that took them to the IAAM finals a year ago. Blair Byrne (86 points), Regan Byrne (58 points) and Maggie Flanagan (61 draw controls) helped lead the offense while the defense in front of breakout goalie Natalie Eastwood (56% save rate) was led by Ashley Dyer. The Byrne sisters (both Clemson), Dyer (Florida), Lena Doreen (Duke), Ava Keenan (Princeton), Madeline Herman (Jacksonville) and Julia Dustin (High Point) all graduate. Previous: 5

6. Archbishop Spalding (Md.), 12-5

The Cavaliers’ season ended with a heartbreaking 7-6 overtime loss to Glenelg Country in the IAAM A playoff quarterfinals on May 5. They had won six out of seven games coming into the contest. Spalding had a 13-2 edge in draws and grabbed an early 2-0 lead. Spalding graduates just two senior starters and will return the bulk of their roster led by sophomore Maeve Cavanagh, and juniors Gabby Greene (Florida) and Maddie Wrenn (Clemson) as they look to climb in the toughest division in the country. Previous: 6

7. Owen J. Roberts (Pa.), 27-1

The Wildcats won their first state championship, 17-9, over Penncrest (Pa.) in the AAA final. Alexa Vogelman scored six goals, dished out three assists, won seven draws and scooped up five ground balls while Gabbi Koury had four goals, five assists, five draws and three ground balls in the final. Owen J. Roberts outscored teams, 450-87, over the season. Vogelman (Syracuse) and Koury (Florida) are part of a strong senior class that led the Wildcats to new heights under coach David Schlesinger, who stepped down after the state title season. Previous: 7

8. Summit (N.J.), 20-2

The Hilltoppers repeated as Group 2 state champions with a 13-4 win over Haddonfield (N.J.). Lindsay Thomas had a hat trick, Lily Spinner scored twice and assisted on three other goals, Jane Freeman scored twice and had an assist and Kate Riley scored twice. Thomas also had five draw controls. Summit graduates Freeman (Johns Hopkins), Spinner (Yale), Cecilia Webb (Virginia) and Grace Matter (Penn), but has a strong group returning led by Kate and Lauren Riley (both Dartmouth) and Anya Wardle (Richmond). Previous: 8

9. Episcopal (Pa.), 16-3

The Churchwomen wrapped up their season with a 14-5 win over Germantown Academy (Pa.). Episcopal was undefeated in Inter-Ac play. Overall, they lost two of their first three games, a narrow one-goal loss to national No. 2 McDonogh (Md.) and then a tough one to Conestoga (Pa.). They went on a tear after that which included wins over eventual Delaware champion Tatnall (Del.) and ISLAA champion Stone Ridge (Md.), and two wins over PAISAA champion Agnes Irwin (Pa.). Their only loss in that period was to Summit. Lex Ventresca (46 goals, 40 assists) led the team in points, Maura Irish scored a team-leading 47 goals, Quinn Whitaker had 56 ground balls and 39 caused turnovers, and Grace McHugh recorded 28 goals, 23 draws, 40 ground balls and 28 caused turnovers. Draw specialist Syd Richter had 77 draws and 26 ground balls. McHugh (Syracuse), Whitaker, Irish, and Richter (Georgetown) will all be back for a team that graduates just three senior starters including Ventresca (Northwestern). Previous: 9

10. Manchester Valley (Md.), 19-0

Emma Penczek tied former Century (Md.) star Katie Schwarzmann’s state title game record with nine goals to lead the Mavericks to a 15-7 win over Middletown (Md.) for the Class 2A state championship. Manchester Valley finished as the only unbeaten public school in Maryland. Penczek finished her sophomore year with 93 goals, 43 assists, 129 draw controls and 37 caused turnovers. Senior midfielders Casey Meredith (78 points) and Erin Herrold (45 points, 61 DC). Haylee Bittinger (65 points) and Penczek will be back to help replace eight seniors, five of whom were starters. Previous: 10

1. American Heritage-Delray (Fla.), 22-1

For the second time in three years, the Stallions were Class 1A state champions. American Heritage-Delray cruised to a 11-4 win over Lake Highland Prep (Fla.).

Previous: 1

2. Milton (Ga.), 20-2

The Eagles picked up a sixth consecutive state championship by defeating West Forsyth (Ga.) 11-6 in the title game. The win followed a 17-7 victory over Walon (Ga.) in the semis.

3. Hockaday (Texas), 20-0

The Daisies closed out a perfect season with a dominating 18-8 win over St. Michael’s (Texas) in the Texas championship game. Hockaday advanced to the finals thanks to a 21-5 victory over Frisco (Texas). Hockaday didn’t even come close to losing this year, as it never won a game by fewer than five goals. Leading scorer Grace Hoverman heads to Columbia while midfielder Lauren Roach goes to Louisville. Previous: 3

4. Cardinal Gibbons (N.C.), 21-2

The Crusaders repeated as state champions by pulling off a 15-11 win over Charlotte Catholic (N.C.) in the finals. The win followed a 19-4 semifinal win over Topsail (N.C.).

5. Blessed Trinity (Ga.), 19-2

The Titans repeated as state Class 5A-6A champions, toppling Roswell (Ga.) 11-5 in the title game. Blessed Trinity’s two losses both came by just one goal.

Blessed Trinity loses three midfielders to the Division I ranks, including Carly Coopman to Oregon, and Jaclyn Johns and Reagan Hart to Navy. Previous: 5

6. Bartram Trail (Fla.), 19-4

The Bears repeated as Class 2A champs by defeating St. Thomas Aquinas (Fla.) 5-4. Junior Ryann Frechette once again led Bartram Trail’s potent offense with 125 goals for the season.

7. Lake Highland Prep (Fla.), 20-4

The Highlanders lost for a second time in 2023 to American Heritage-Delray, falling 11-4 in the state championship. Junior Alex Horn, who is committed to Coastal Carolina, led Lake Highland with 48 goals and 27 assists. Nearly every starter will return for LHP next season, including MacKenzie Van Marcke De Lummen who had 39 goals and goalie Gabriela Adamson. Previous: 7

8. Plant (Fla.), 18-4

The Panthers lost to eventual state champions Bartram Trail (Fla.) 13-6 in the state semifinals. Plant’s signature win in 2023 came against Steinbrenner (Fla.) in the playoffs. Sophomore McKenzey Craig had a team-leading 48 goals and 49 assists. Plant is another top team expected to return its core roster, including Ashlyn Bell who had 85 points, and Katie Fisher who had 60. Previous: 8

9. Steinbrenner (Fla.), 14-3

The Stallions’ season came to an end in the regional final after losing to Plant (Fla.) 6-5. Steinbrenner previously defeated Plant early in the regular season.

Xavier-bound Kate Prentice had 59 points while Kaitlin Price had a team-leading 30 assists before heading to Brown. Previous: 9

10. St. Michael’s (Texas), 16-3

1. Loyola Academy (Ill.), 22-4

Roughly a week after edging rival New Trier for the sectional championship, the Ramblers topped another longtime rival, Hinsdale Central, for the state title. Loyola Academy did so with remarkable balance as six players poured in multiple goals, a fitting end to a season in which six players finished between 33 and 65 goals: Eileen Dooley (65), Riley Jenkins (52), Grace Dwyer (51), Emma Burke (49), Mia Chupaila (34) and Jocelyn Park (33). Previous: 1

2. Upper Arlington (Ohio), 21-3

Last year, the Golden Bears won their first 22 games, mostly by large margins, before falling in the state title game. This season, Upper Arlington endured a few regular-season losses and plenty of challenging competition in the postseason, and passed every test down the stretch. Ohio State commit Kampbell Stone scored six times in the title game to finish the season with a program-record 106 goals (along with 113 draw controls, 54 ground balls and 29 caused turnovers). Previous: 2

3. New Trier (Ill.), 18-5

Regardless of their sectional title game loss, the Trevians were clearly one of the most impressive teams in the Midwest as all five of their losses came by three goals or fewer against top-notch competition. Addie Shevitz led New Trier in goals (67) and points (90) while Kennedy Meier and Claire Ratke added 62 points apiece. Meier also set the program’s career draw controls mark at 336 (including 106 in 2023). Previous: 3

4. Olentangy Liberty (Ohio), 21-3

The Patriots gave Upper Arlington a battle in the state championship game. While the Golden Bears ultimately won the title, the Patriots proved themselves among the state’s best teams throughout the season. Liberty’s highlights included senior Makena Harrington (91 goals, 26 assists) and junior Isabelle Pohmer (86 goals, 23 assists) both topping 100 points. Previous: 4

5. Sacred Heart Academy (Ky.), 23-5

Elizabeth Mueller, who had a critical hat trick in the state semifinals against Kentucky Country Day, finished the season with a team-leading 58 goals.

Previous: 6

For the second straight season, Guerin Catholic topped Carmel in the state championship game with the Golden Eagles now winning three of their last four contests against the Greyhounds. Down 2-0 and 4-1 in the first half, Guerin Catholic rallied, helped by five goals from Caitlin Carter. Clare Alic and Alex Soucie also tallied hat tricks for the Golden Eagles. Previous: 7

7. New Albany (Ohio), 16-6

The Eagles got back to the Region 1 title game with a two-goal victory over Medina (Ohio) before falling to Olentangy Liberty in the championship. That snapped a remarkable string of six straight regional titles for New Albany. Still, the Eagles’ 2023 campaign had plenty of highlights, including wins over Hinsdale Central (Ill.), New Trier (Ill.) and Upper Arlington (Ohio). Previous: 8

8. Hinsdale Central (Ill.), 21-5

For the second straight season, the Red Devils fell in the state title game, this time to Loyola Academy. Hinsdale Central now has to say goodbye to a very talented senior class highlighted by three first team all-state standouts in midfielder Angie Conley (78 goals, 66 assists, 144 points), defender Fran Gick (30 caused turnovers) and attacker Reese Napier (84 goals, 37 assists, 121 points). Previous: 9

9. Dublin Coffman (Ohio), 18-3

The Rocks had a great season with two of their losses coming against one of the Midwest’s best, Upper Arlington, and the third coming in overtime against Liberty, which has been one of the Buckeye State’s best stories in 2023. Kate Tyack (78 goals, 26 assists) surpassed the 100-point mark for Dublin Coffman while Bailey Morris also topped 70 goals and led the Rocks with 44 ground balls and 23 caused turnovers. Previous: 10

10. Benilde-St. Margaret’s (Minn.), 17-2

The Red Knights ended the year on a nine-game win streak, including avenging a seven-goal regular-season loss to Lakeville South (Minn.) in the state semifinals thanks to a second-half rally. They followed with another comeback for another one-goal win in the state championship against Edina (Minn.). Junior Maggie Graczyk helped the Red Knights surge into the lead, scoring three of her four goals over a 10-minute stretch, including the go-ahead goal and an insurance tally. Previous: NR

— Jonah Rosenblum


1. Colorado Academy (Colo.), 19-0

The Mustangs capped off a perfect season with an 11-6 win over Regis Jesuit (Colo.) in the CHSAA Class 5A championship, capturing their eighth straight title and ninth overall in Sonorah Hunter’s first season as head coach. Former coach Laura Sandbloom had been a part of each of the previous seven titles but moved to Ohio last summer. Hunter inherited a loaded roster and most of it returns next year. Junior Zoe Martin led the attack with 79 goals and seven assists, while junior Skylar May (31 goals, 55 assists), junior Charlotte Corkins (35 goals, 26 assists) and senior Anna Colpack (36 goals and five assists) all finished with 30 goals or more. Colpack was one of the few seniors on the team. Previous: 1

2. San Ramon Valley (Calif.), 24-0

The Wolves beat Oak Ridge (Calif.) 14-7 to claim the CIF North Coast Section Division 1 title. They had advanced out of the semifinals with an 18-5 win over Redwood, who beat SRV in the 2022 championship game. San Ramon Valley also had a perfect season in 2021 but played just 12 games in the return to play amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Junior Leslie Iorio led the team with 81 goals, 17 assists, 71 groundballs, and 11 caused turnovers, and three of the next four leading scorers (all with more than 30 goals) also are set to return. Senior Brinley Myers (45 goals, 51 assists, 186 draw controls) will be the toughest one to replace. Previous: 2

3. St. Ignatius Prep (Calif.), 18-3

The Wildcats avenged a regular-season loss to Sacred Heart Prep (Calif.) to collect a second straight CIF Central Coast section title with a 10-8 victory in the championship game. St. Ignatius had defeated SHP in the CCS finals last year in another close game. The Wildcats’ other two losses were against Valor Christian (Colo.) and San Ramon Valley, but they had notable wins over Foothill-Santa Ana (Calif.), Cathedral Catholic (Calif.) and Kent Denver (Colo.). Denver-bound midfielder Olivia Ripple will be tough to replace but with just five seniors graduating, St. Ignatius should be strong again in 2024. Previous: 3

4. Foothill-Santa Ana (Calif.), 18-2

The Knights won the CIF Southern Section Division 1 title – their third straight sectional title – with a 13-5 win over Marlborough (Calif.) in the final. Foothill is 61-3 in the last three years and hasn’t lost to a Section team since 2019. The Knights’ two losses this year were against St. Ignatius and Colorado Academy in back-to-back games. Senior Mia Marchetti led the team with 63 points on 40 goals and 23 assists, and Foothill will have to replace her and three other top 5 scorers, but freshman Kayla Agarie had a team-high 45 goals to go with 11 assists and she’s a good one to build around next year. Previous: 4

5. Regis Jesuit (Colo.), 12-5

The Raiders avenged an early-season loss to Valor Christian (Colo.) to get to the CHSAA Class 5A final for the first time in program history, beating Valor 11-7 in the semifinals. However, they fell short in the championship against Colorado Academy. Regis had lost to the Mustangs earlier in the season and also had a one-goal loss to Cherry Creek (Colo.) and a slipup against Fairview (Colo.), but finished the season strong. The Raiders also had a notable win over Illinois powerhouse Loyola Academy, and they were led by sophomore Maddy Jokerst (56 goals, 19 assists). Seniors Ava Rogala (33 goals, 11 assists) and Carly Kennedy (30 goals, 9 assists) were the next leading goal scorers but freshman Delaney Sitzmann was the second-leading points scorer with 21 goals and 24 assists. Previous: 5

6. Valor Christian (Colo.), 14-4

The Eagles split games with Regis Jesuit this season but lost the one that mattered more, falling in the Class 5A semifinals, 11-7. They had a dominant win over fellow semifinalist Cherry Creek (Colo.) this season, beat St. Ignatius Prep (Calif.) by a goal and only lost to Colorado Academy by three goals. Sophomore Amanda Stevens had a team-high 52 goals and four assists, junior Eliza Osburn added 46 goals and 10 assists, but senior Reagan Digby produced a team-high 96 points on 41 goals and 55 assists, and that’s a lot of offense to replace. Fortunately, she is one of just two regular starters who are graduating. Previous: 6

7. Sacred Heart Prep (Calif.), 17-3

The Gators fell 10-8 to St. Ignatius Prep in the CIF Central Coast Section championship after splitting games with the Wildcats during the regular season. They advanced to the final with a 14-11 win over Scotts Valley (Calif.) in the semifinals. Their other loss was to San Ramon Valley. SHP featured five players committed to college programs, including senior Emily Leschin (Tufts) and goalkeeper Lauren Hall (Denver). Previous: 7

8. Torrey Pines (Calif.), 16-6

The Falcons finished strong with a 13-4 win over Cathedral Catholic (Calif.) in the CIF San Diego Section Open Division championship, as they claimed their first title since 2018. Torrey Pines had avenged a regular-season loss to Coronado (Calif.) in the semifinals. The Falcons lost by one to San Ramon Valley and had two other one-goal defeats, but their other losses were against Foothill (by three), Mid-Atlantic power St. Paul’s (Md.) and Texas state champion Hockaday. Junior Laurel Gonzalez led the Falcons with 67 goals, 37 assists, 52 groundballs and 96 draw controls, while junior Alina Hsu added 51 goals and 14 assists. Torrey Pines graduates six seniors, but much of the offense will return, as will goalie Camille Samarasinghe. Previous: 8

9. Jesuit Portland (Ore.), 18-1

The Crusaders topped Lake Oswego (Ore.) 15-10 to claim their third straight state championship in a rematch of the last two OGLA title games. Jesuit, which won titles in 2019, 2022 and 2023 (the 2020 and 2021 seasons were cancelled because of COVID-19) avenged its only regular-season loss to Grant (Ore.) in the semifinals, handing the Generals their first defeat, 15-14. Jesuit was led by senior Piper Daskalos (76 goals, 25 assists) and sophomore Gigi Abernethy (52 goals, 19 assists). Previous: 9

10. Oak Ridge (Calif.), 22-2

The No. 2-seeded Trojans made it to the CIF North Coast Section championship game but couldn’t avenge their only regular-season loss, falling again to San Ramon Valley, 14-7. They had advanced out of the semifinals with an 11-7 win over Amador Valley (Calif.). Oak Ridge had just four seniors on the varsity roster, so with plenty of experience coming back in 2024, the Trojans should be poised for another run. Previous: 10
