ESPN RISE FAB 50 Girls' Soccer rankings: Week 10
Rank School (City, State) Record Previous Rank Notes
1 Pennington Prep (Pennington, N.J.) 18-0-0* 1 Season complete. New Jersey Prep A state champion. Kaitlyn Kerr netted the game-winner as Pennington wrapped up its sixth straight Prep A state title with a 1-0 victory over Peddie School. Peddie's only losses this year were to Pennington. Pennington's stretch run included five matches in seven days. Kerr will be one of the nation's top Class of 2010 prospects. Even without North Carolina-bound Amber Brooks, who is playing for the under-17 national team, Pennington was solid and produced results. The team had wins over three state No. 1 and FAB 50-ranked squads.
2 Bethlehem (Bethlehem, N.Y.) 20-0-0 3 Kaitlyn Martin scored her 18th goal of the season in Bethlehem's section victory over Shenedehowa.
3 St. Ursula (Cincinnati, Ohio) 18-0-3 4 St. Ursula pinned the first loss of the year on Centerville to advance to this week's state semifinals.
4 Lenape (Medford, N.J.) 21-0-0 5 Lenape routed Moorestown 6-1 to finish regular season play with a perfect record.
5 Massapequa (Massapequa, N.Y.) 15-0-3 6 Amanda Reverberi scored the game-winner as Massapequa advanced in the playoffs with a 2-1 win over Oceanside.
6 Acton-Boxboro (Acton, Mass.) 17-0-1 7 A-B completed an undefeated regular season and figures to get a No. 1 seed for this week's state playoffs.

8 Lincoln (Portland, Ore.) 13-0-0 9 Lincoln had a first-round bye and starts postseason play this week. A showdown with Jesuit could occur during the playoffs.
9 Baylor School (Chattanooga, Tenn.) 17-0-1 11 After surviving an overtime win against Pope John Paul II, Baylor rallied for a 6-1 win over Brentwood Academy. Baylor scored all six goals in the final 28 minutes to advance to this week's Division II state semifinals.
10 Alta (Sandy, Utah) 19-1-0* 15 Season complete. Class 5A state champion. Junior All-America candidate Kealia Ohai scored both goals as Alta defeated Brighton 2-0 in the final after Alta and Brighton had split their regular season meetings. Alta also posted a victory over FAB 50-ranked Montgomery (Calif.).
11 Archbishop Spalding (Severn, Md.) 19-1-3* 35 Season complete. IAAM champion. Spalding ended the season with nine straight shutouts, including a 2-0 result over previously undefeated McDonogh in the conference final. Maryland commit Erica Page lead Spalding with 16 goals and 17 assists.
12 Immaculate Heart Academy (Washington Township, N.J.) 17-1-0 12 IHA won the Bergen County Tournament to remain among the nation's top-ranked squads.
13 Strongsville (Strongsville, Ohio) 20-1-1 19 Danielle Hubka, Paige Langhais, and Katie Peterlin scored second-half goals as Strongsville defeated Sylvania Northview 3-0 to advance to the state semifinals.
14 Downingtown West (Downingtown, Pa.) 21-2-0 20 Downingtown West won the District 1 championship which gives it the top seed for this week's PIAA state playoffs.
15 McDonogh School (Owings Mills, Md.) 20-1-1* 2 Season complete. IAAM runner-up. McDonogh entered the conference final battered and bruised, and a 2-0 setback to Spalding ended any hopes of a FAB 50 national title. During the season, McDonogh had a 4-1 win over Sacred Heart (Ky.) and beat Brentwood (Tenn.).
16 Casa Grande (Petaluma, Calif.) 16-1-0 16 Casa Grande received the No. 1 seed in this week's sectional playoffs. A postseason rematch with FAB 50-ranked Montgomery is a possibility.
17 Union-Endicott (Endicott, N.Y.) 19-0-0 23 Brittain Wagner has 17 shutouts for U-E, which has allowed only two goals this season.
18 Montgomery (Skillman, N.J.) 17-0-1 22 Emily Knesevitch scored the game-winner in overtime as Montgomery posted a mild upset over previously undefeated Pingry School in the Somerset County Tournament final.
19 Reitz Memorial (Evansville, Ind.) 22-2-0* NR Season complete. Indiana state champion. Reitz Memorial atoned for a pair of regular-season losses by defeating Noblesville in the state semifinals and going on to claim the title. This marks the first time a school in Indiana has swept the boys' and girls' titles.

22 Woodbury (Woodbury, Minn.) 20-0-3* 24 Season complete. Minnesota Class AA state champion. A junior-dominated lineup led Woodbury to a state title, capped by a 2-1 win over Eden Prairie.
