Westchester/Hudson Valley Girls Basketball Rankings
1. Ossining (3-0): The Pride put up an astounding 105 points this week against Mahopac and are headed to Disney World this week with a ridiculous 91.3 point per game scoring average. Even Mickey will smile at that.
2. Irvington (7-0): Nobody has really even tested the Bulldogs at this point. That should change this week at the County Center when they take part in the Slam Dunk. First up is AA power Jamestown and then either Kingston or Mount Vernon.
3. Pearl River (4-0): Legendary coach Lorraine Moylan won her 500th career game on Monday in the Slam Dunk, a convincing victory over Brewster. The Pirates seem to get better every time they step on the court.
4. Albertus Magnus (3-0): Quiet week for the Falcons, who beat Suffern 67-32 in the previous game last Wednesday. Kelly Guarino and Meave Parahus had huge efforts.
5. Tappan Zee (6-0): The Dutchies dismantles Greeley last week to head into the break unbeaten. They have a chance to make a true statement this week when they host defending state champ Peekskill at home on Wednesday.
6. Arlington (7-0): The Admirals were mighty impressive on Monday in the Slam Dunk semifinal. They’re a quality defensive team that has a variety of scorers, led by Jocelyn Strack.
7. Cornwall (3-0): There’s no clear-cut No. 1 team in Section 9. The nod here goes to Cornwall, a program with strong tradition and a nice nucleus of players back from last season. They’ll be tested by Wallkill in Class A.
8. New Rochelle (4-1): The Huguenots made so noise last week, beating Rye and Peekskill to claim the Rye tournament title. But they got run over by Long Island Lutheran 62-23.
9. Hamilton (5-0): The Class C powerhouse gets back on the court Tuesday with a matchup against Newburgh Free Academy in the North Rockland tournament. Two wins this week should officially put the Red Raiders on the map.
10t. Mount Vernon (4-1): The Knights have a chance to shoot up the rankings this week at the Slam Dunk. No doubt they’re anxious to play Irvington in a title game. Irvington beat Mount Vernon by 40 in the regular season last year.
10t. Monroe-Woodbury (5-0): The Crusaders may be one of the best defensive teams in the region. We’ll find out if they’re good enough to make a run at a Section 9 championship after the holiday break.
