    On Saturday, the Pride lost at home for the first time since February 4, 2011, to Spring-Ford, one of the best teams in Pennsylvania. The Pride should get back on track this week as they face Blind Brook and end the season against Irvington. Saniya Chong will be looking to go out in style in her final regular season home game.

    The Bulldogs put a hurting on Ardsley, a team they could face in the County Center. Irvington travels to Ossining on Friday to face Saniya Chong for the last time. Can the Bulldogs spoil Chong’s final regular season home game?

    The Patriots got their revenge on Lourdes this past week. The Warriors handed John Jay-EF its only loss of the season in early January. But Patriots cannot fall asleep, as they end the regular season against two strong teams — Arlington and Beacon.

    Pearl River continues to dominate defensively and has established itself as the clear favorite in Class A. The Pirates are on a roll after losing to Irvington earlier in the season and have a lot of confidence.

    Lourdes couldn’t pull off a second win against John Jay-EF on the road, but it looks like the two teams will finish second and third in Class AA. If they both make the County Center, it will set up an epic, winner-take-all rematch.

    The Red Raiders went through a nightmare on Monday. Both Maia Hood and Tiffany Corselli were badly injured in Hamilton’s loss to Harrison, and the Huskies took care of business down the stretch. It looks like Hood and Corselli could return for the playoffs, so we’ll see how everything shapes up.

    The Trojans have three stars in Ali Silfen, Jackie Lavitt and Lea Saliba. The trio has been around forever and has the experience to boost Blind Brook into the championship. If the seeds play out and Kennedy gets healthy, we could be in for a great semifinal match up.

    The Gaels had the bulk of their big games in the first half of the season and have taken care of business of late. Kennedy lost its backup power forward for the season with a knee injury and one of its starting guards, Sara Dowd, is currently out with an ankle injury. Dowd needs to get back if Kennedy wants to compete for a Class B championship.

    Monroe-Woodbury is the favorite in Section 9 Class AA and has a great group of girls who play well together. Kerrie Walsh is a great leader and has the star power to boost the Crusaders to a championship.

    Sleepy Hollow enters our rankings with the best streak in Section 1. The Lady Horsemen have won 16 straight games and, despite their youth, will be looking to return to the County Center for the second consecutive year. New Rochelle, Clarkstown South, Pleasantville, North Rockland, Ursuline, Wallkill and Arlington are all on the outside looking in.
