1. Garden City (16-0)
They defeated Lynbrook, 18-2, on Friday in the Nassau Class B quarterfinals. In unrelated-but-related news, McDonogh (Md.) wrapped up its season with another IAAM championship and maintained its top ranking in the LaxPower and ESPN Rise national polls. Garden City is ranked No. 2 in both, and the debate will continue.

2. Farmingdale (14-1)
The Dalers are riding a 14-game win streak and are now ranked 7th by ESPN Rise. Farmingdale advanced to the Nassau Class A semifinals with a 23-4 win over MacArthur last Wednesday in which Kim Kolodny went off, scoring a career-high 10 goals.

3. Wantagh (13-3)
The Warriors beat Jericho, 20-5, on Friday behind huge games from Colleen Lovett (six goals & five assists), Paula Schmidt (four goals & three assists) and Kelly Keenan (nine saves). This sets the stage for a Class B semifinal showdown with Manhasset. Wantagh won the first meeting, 13-11, early in the season.

4. Manhasset (13-3)
They beat Division, 16-4, in the Nassau Class B quarterfinals to advance. Ali Perez scored four goals, as did Kerri Fleishhacker, her first scores since returning from an ankle injury. The Indians had owned Class C and moved up to "B" this year, but find themselves in the semifinals.

5. Massapequa (11-4)
The Chiefs topped East Meadow, 20-3, on Wednesday in the Class A quarterfinals. The scoring was balanced. Kelsey O'Brien had four goals, Maddie Pimental three, Danielle Doherty had two goals and six assists, and senior Jackie Kennedy had a career-high five points (two goals & three assists). They'll face Port Washington in the semifinals on Thursday.

6. South Side (10-4)
Sophomore Micheala Lynch scored a career-high six goals as the Cyclones beat Plainedge, 15-9, in the Class B quarterfinals. They had finished the regular season with a 17-7 win over the Red Devils as well. They'll face Garden City in the semifinals on Wednesday.

7. Port Washington (13-3)
The Vikings advanced to the Class A semifinals with last Thursday's 16-7 win over Long Beach in which Jackie and Alexa Froccaro each totaled six points. Danielle Rosmarin added four points. Port Washington will square off against Massapequa in the semifinals on Thursday.

8. Cold Spring Harbor (11-4)
The Seahawks should be well-rested for Tuesday's matchup with Locust Valley in the Class C semifinals. Cold Spring Harbor wrapped up the regular season on May 12 and had a first-round bye.

9. North Shore (11-4)
Like their Conference C rival, second-seeded North Shore also got to sit out the first round. They'll face Seaford in their semifinal Tuesday at Denton Avenue.

10. Baldwin (11-5)
Allie Rodgers scored three goals as the fourth-seeded Bruins advanced to the Class A semifinals wih a 7-3 win over Syosset on Thursday. They'll face Farmingdale on Thursday. Baldwin has a tough defense that has only allowed two opponents to crack double-digits.
