girls' Top 25

There wasn't a great deal of movement this week, but St. John the Baptist of New York knocked St. Michael Academy out of the top 25 with an upset win -- and took over the last spot.

About all that's left now is the New York championship, which won't be played until March 29 and 30, for reasons unclear to anyone not from New York. That makes this a good time to note that any team that appeared on this list at any time during the year had a wonderful season. Too often there's disappointment over the outcome of the last game when there should be satisfaction over a great year. After all, only five teams in the top 25 went unbeaten. And in the end, there can only be one No. 1.
