4. Eastchester (10-1) A gritty win over Pearl River and tight game over Ketcham raises the Eagles stock. The squad is also the #1 ranked team in NYS Class A. (Danielle Cacciola shown right)
5. Brewster (11-4) The only team to edge Carmel has found a pitcher to compliment ace Alycia Feeney – sophomore Jenna Sacchetti.
6. Ursuline (11-1) The Koalas are a handful because of their three D1 players but eighth-grader Korina Guerra has been extremely impressive.
7. Tappan Zee (10-3) Paulina Gutkin is hitting her stride in the circle and the Dutchies offense is clicking.
8. Pearl River (10-3) After a heartbreaking loss to Eastchester, it bounced back with a win over Harrison.
9. Valhalla (9-2) Despite losing to Westlake, Brandi Coon and Sydni Holtz will keep the Vikings on track.
