High-SchoolGirl: Carmel

While Good Counsel (Olney, Md.) continued to dig its heels into the No. 1 spot in the POWERADE FAB 50 girls' soccer rankings, a battle is brewing right behind the Falcons.

On Saturday, No. 2 Carmel (Carmel, Ind.) takes on No. 6 Reitz Memorial (Evansville, Ind.), and something's got to give. Both teams are undefeated so far this season.

In the volleyball FAB 50 rankings, the top 10 teams remained in perfect marching order for the second week in a row. Xavier (Phoenix, Ariz.) slid into the No. 11 spot, up from No. 16, and Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.) broke into the rankings at No. 34 after winning the Asics Cal Challenge.

In cross country, Simi Valley (Calif.) moved into the FAB 50 top 10, while Carroll (Southlake, Texas) jumped up from No. 22 to No. 15.

New No. 1 in girls soccer

September, 13, 2011
First it was a team from Ohio. Then it was a team from New Jersey. Now it's a team from Indiana that holds the top spot in the FAB 50 national girls soccer rankings.

Welcome to the top, Carmel.

The Greyhounds (9-0), who have a tough game against No. 33 Noblesville (Noblesville, Ind.) later this week, will need to stay perfect to keep the top ranking in the Midwest since a pair of New Jersey programs -- Paul VI (Haddonfield, N.J.) and Pennington School (Pennington, N.J.) are lurking at Nos. 2 and 3, respectively.
