The final USA Lacrosse High School Girls’ National Top 25 features two newcomers after they captured state championships. Cold Spring Harbor (N.Y.) returned to the top of its New York class, and Victor (N.Y.) is a three-peat winner.

A third New York state champion, Sayville (N.Y.), made a little move up to No. 12 after finishing an unbeaten season. Sayville made history with its first state title.

New Canaan (Conn.) finished its season in fine fashion with another win over Darien (Conn.) for the state crown. New Canaan also topped Wilton (Conn.) in the semifinals in a good show of strength to cement a spot in the top five.

Just ahead of Cold Spring Harbor and Victor, No. 20 Summit (N.J.) was one of the lone active teams in the second half of the rankings. Summit won its group state title to complete a strong season.
