Mass. Girls Division 2 Poll
Defending Mass. Girls D2 state champion Notre Dame Academy showed it is certainly ready to defend its crown when the post-season tournament starts early next week. The Cougars (19-0-1) beat D1 #2 Austin Prep in the finals of its Cougar Classic, and also tied D1 #1 Needham 4-4.
Now #2 Shrewsbury (18-2-0) will certainly be a team to watch, as the Colonials only two losses have been to Notre Dame and Needham.
A semifinalist last year, #4 Matignon (18-3-0) is ready to make a serious run, as is MVC/Dual County Small champion #5 Tewksbury/Methuen (16-1-3).
Middlesex League entrants #6 Winchester (12-4-4) and #8 Burlington (13-6-1) can’t be overlooked, while #7 Wellesley (13-4-3), the Bay State League Herget Division champion, has come on strong in the second half.
#9 Longmeadow (12-5-2) and #10 Westwood (16-4-2) will be tough to beat as well.
