1. St. Anthony's (16-2)
The Friars finished their season last Tuesday with a 20-5 win over Sacred Heart, capturing a fourth consecutive CHSAA Class AA championship. Kerrin Maurer scored four goals and Casey Madden and Darcy Messina each added three goals and two assists. Tori Holland, who made nine saves, was named finals MVP.
2. Sacred Heart (15-6)
The Spartans lost in the final to St. Anthony's for a fourth straight year... Ain't no shame in that. The program, however, did accomplish one of its goals and that was to "get on the national map." On the strength of a four-game sweep of Illinois' nationally-ranked teams, Sacred Heart entered rated No. 35 in the country by ESPN Rise. Becky Conto (94 points), Nina Corcoran (86) and Kristin Brent (81) were among the top seven scorers in the CHSAA.
3. St. John the Baptist (12-9)
The Cougars fell in the CHSAA Class AA semifinals to Sacred Heart. Almost the entire team returns next season, including Jill May, Kaitlyn Montalbano, Morgan Jaycox and Katelyn Coon, each of whom had breakout seasons.
4. Our Lady of Mercy (6-9)
Despite early-season struggles and a sub-.500 record, the Mustangs reached the Class AA semifinals, where they fell to St. Anthony's.
5. Long Island Lutheran (11-1)
