1. Kellenberg (5-1): The Firebirds had just one game last week and defeated Our Lady of Mercy, 65-45. Senior Emma O'Connor had 16 points, nine assists and five blocked shots and sophomore Khadijah Donaldson had 18 points and nine rebounds. Wih point guard Katie Cunningham also, the Firebirds have a good core that gives them a good chance to repeat as CHSAA champions in a very competitive league.

2. Long Island Lutheran (10-1): The Crusaders continue to win games, but suffered a huge blow. Freshman Taylor Brown tore her right ACL on Wednesday and is out for the season. LIL beat Molloy, one of the top teams in the city, 59-46 on Wednesday. Jessica DeNicola had 16 points, nine rebounds and four blocked shots. Then the Crusaders defeated West 50th Street, a PSAL A finalist last season, 44-33 on Saturday. DeNicola had 18 points and seven rebounds in a 46-41 win over Lower Merion (Pa.) in the NY/PA Challenge on Sunday.

3. Holy Trinity (7-3): The Titans opened the week with a 66-54 win over St. Mary's. Katie Poppe had 31 points, 14 rebounds and six assists in the win. Then the Titans lost on Sunday to Nazareth Academy (Pa.), 51-46, in the NY/PA Challenge.

4. St. Mary’s (6-3): The Gaels dropped two league games losing to Holy Trinity, 66-54 and to St. John the Baptist, 50-40.

5. Division (8-0): Kristen Stuart had 15 points and 12 rebounds in a 58-47 win over Wantagh and then Division defeated Garden City, 37-32 in overtime. Nicolette Parmese scored 16 points in the win.

6. Garden City (7-2): Garden City continues their downswing after a loss to Division but will get a major boost on Wednesday with the likely return of Diana Leondis. Barbara Sullivan and Kim Ryan have done their best trying to put the team on their capable backs, but the Trojans are hurting without their lead point scorer.

7. Uniondale (6-4): Uniondale proved its mettle by pulling out a 44-43 squeaker over Baldwin, though neither team impressed. The key for U-Dale continues to be Ifeanyi Ofili, who scored all five of the team’s overtime points, securing the victory. Talk about clutch.

8. Farmingdale (8-1): Farmingdale continues to surprise nay-sayers by holding their own in AA-I. Uniondale should watch its collective back, as Farmingdale smacked down a surging MacArthur, 57-49. Kyra Ochwat is coming into her own, scoring 19 points against MacArthur and leading the charge against Oceanside. Their only loss of the year is to Uniondale.

9. Baldwin (7-2): Baldwin lost the heartbreaker to Uniondale and hasn’t won by more than five points since December. Conference AA-I is taking its toll, but so far Baldwin has managed to keep its head above water.

10. Roosevelt (6-2): Simone Thomas lit it up against Seaford, scoring 21 for a surging Roosevelt.
