Nassau Top 10 (as of May 15)

1. Garden City (15-0) - Umm... Nuff said.

2. Farmingdale (13-1) - The two-time defending Class A state champs finished the regular season with a 14-9 win over Massapequa to capture the Conference A-I title. Their only loss this season was to Garden City, and they followed it up with 13 straight wins. They'll host MacArthur on Wednesday in the Class A quarterfinals.

3. Wantagh (12-3) - Their only losses were to Farmingdale, Bay Shore and Garden City. Ain't no shame in that. The Warriors remained undaunted. (Shout-out to assistant coach Ody Svolos, and apologies for the misspelling. Also, Tom Rock said you've overrated his basketball skills.)

4. Manhasset (12-3) - They went 4-2 in Conference B-I, which is saying something. Any team as accustomed to winning as the Indians, that has three All-Americans, is dangerous in the playoffs.

5. Massapequa (10-4) - The Chiefs lost to Farmingdale in the regular-season finale, but the game had seven ties and Massapequa had a one-goal lead midway through the second half. Can't take them for granted. They'll face East Meadow on Wednesday in the Class A quarterfinals.

6. South Side (9-4) - They finished up with a 17-7 win over Plainedge. South Side reached the Class B semifinals last season and again has a strong roster, so they'll be a threat. The Cyclones have a first-round bye in the playoffs.

7. Port Washington (12-3) - The Vikings lost to conference rival Massapequa on May 4, but followed it up with dominating wins against Oceanside and Calhoun. Don't underestimate a team with their firepower. They're the No. 3 seed in the Class A playoffs and will host Long Beach on Wednesday.

8. Cold Spring Harbor (11-4) - The Seahawks finished the regular season with a loss to Garden City, which calls for the common refrain: Ain't no shame in that. CSH went 10-0 in Conference C and has a first-round bye.

9. North Shore (11-4) - North Shore's only conference loss was to Cold Spring Harbor, an 8-7 defeat last week. They're about as evenly matched as can be and are the favorites to meet in the county final. The Vikings have elite "veteran" scorers in Amanada Johansen and Lauren Janelli, and an excellent goalie in Jennie Berglin.

10. Lynbrook (11-2) - They've got the eighth seed (because they played in Conference B-II), but they've been dominant at times this season and their impressive record shouldn't be discounted. Those B-II teams represented themselves failry well in non-league. The Owls have firepower with Nicole Pataky and Kasey Carter.
