LM Fan-Tasy High School Championships: Girls Semifinals

 


Since there is no nationwide high school championship tournament played on the field, Lacrosse Magazine decided to hand over a fantasy bracket to you, the fans.

We narrowed the boys' and girls' fields to eight teams, keeping geographic diversity in mind - the brackets include the champions from five regions (Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, South and West) and three at-large teams, based on LM's national rankings.

First round voting ran Monday through Wednesday night, and top-seeded McDonogh (Md.) was edged by less than 1 percent of the vote (Full results are on the bracket above). Now it's time for the semifinals. The team with the highest percentage of votes advances to the next round. And, please give a reason for your votes in the comment sections below. Some of these could wind up in the August, high school season wrap issue of Lacrosse Magazine.

Semifinal voting ends at 8 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday, June 24. Championship voting will then run from Monday, June 25 to Wednesday, June 27 at 8 p.m.

No. 8 Loyola Academy (Ill.) Ramblers (22-3)

No. 4 St. Anthony's (N.Y.) Friars (16-1)

  • LM National Rank: 24
  • LM Midwest Regional Rank: 1

The Ramblers topped New Trier (Ill.) for their fourth straight IHSWLA championship, notching an 11-7 victory against their crosstown rival. Each of Loyola's three losses were against Mid-Atlantic teams — Georgetown Visitation (D.C.), Bishop Ireton (Va.) and Holy Cross (Md.) — and it hasn't lost to a Midwest opponent since 2009.

  • LM National Rank: 4
  • LM Northeast Regional Rank: 1

The Friars won their fifth straight CHSAA Class AA championship, topping Sacred Heart Academy (N.Y.) 19-12 in the title game. St. Anthony's — paced by senior midfielder Annie Heagerty (Georgetown) — only loss of the season came against Bryn Mawr (Md.), 15-7, in the Maryland-New York Challenge.

Voting has ended. Thanks for participating and check back to LaxMagazine.com on Monday for semifinal winners and Fan-Tasy championship matchups.

No. 2 Moorestown (N.J.) Quakers (26-0)

No. 6 Vero Beach (Fla.) Fighting Indians (22-2)

  • LM National Rank: 2
  • LM Mid-Atlantic Regional Rank: 2

Moorestown survived Chatham (N.J.)'s furious rally in the New Jersey Tournament of Champions, as the Quakers completed their perfect season with a 12-11 victory. Stephanie Toy, who had two goals and three assists against Chatham, finished the season with 34 scores, leading Moorestown to its first ToC title since 2009.

  • LM National Rank: 8
  • LM South Regional Rank: 1

The Fighting Indians took their seventh straight state championship with a 22-6 defeat of Bishop Moore (Fla.) in the FHSAA finals, extending their winning streak against in-state opponents to 93 games. Mackenzie Smith (Vanderbilt) and Co. showed they could play with anyone in the country, topping St. Stephen's & St. Agnes (Va.) 12-11 and losing to McDonogh (Md.) — like everyone else — 15-5.
