THE NOVA NINETEEN (updated 1/15/18)

  1. Paul VI (14-2)–Host #2 Bishop Ireton on Thursday—we’ll be at that one.
  2. Bishop Ireton (12-2)–After the PVI game have to travel to #3 O’Connell on Sunday. Big week for the Cardinals, who also play Good Counsel.
  3. O’Connell (10-4)–Road games with Archbishop Carroll and powerful Bishop McNamara before hosting Ireton.
  4. T.C. Williams (10-2)–Lost one up in New York over the weekend. Big make-up game Wednesday with #7 Herndon.
  5. Edison (11-3)–A big week, with a game versus solid Wakefield before round three versus #7 Marshall on Friday night.
  6. Marshall (12-2)–Marshall hopefully should be at full strength for Friday’s latest big one with the Eagles.
  7. Herndon (9-1)–Living dangerously but still living large. Two one-point recent wins over McLean and South Lakes, the latter after falling behind big to the Seahawks. Four games this week including a brutal back-to-back with #9 Langley and #4 T.C. Williams.
  8. Tuscarora (14-0)–Tuscarora remains undefeated but has to get by Freedom-South Riding again later this week, this time on the road.
  9. Langley (9-3)–Early control of the Liberty at stake as the Saxons battle Herndon on the road tomorrow. We were impressed by not just Jordyn Callaghan but all the Saxons in their big victory over McLean Friday.
  10. Woodbridge (11-4)–Playing a lot of out-of-area competition to prepare for regionals and beyond. Beat Life Center Academy by 11 points—the same score #1 Paul VI beat them by. Vikings might be much, much higher in this poll soon.
  11. South Lakes (11-2)–Lost the tough one against rival Herndon but still announced themselves as a dangerous threat to the top public schools around.
  12. Flint Hill (10-4)–Playing very well with nice conference victories over Bullis and Holy Child. Powerful Georgetown Visitation and #13 Westfield this week.
  13. Westfield (10-5)—Fell to tough Madison on the road but still looking good. Tough ones with Chantilly and Flint Hill this week.
  14. Centreville (9-4)–Can at a minimum sit at a tie atop the Concorde if the Wildcats can defeat Madison and Chantilly this week.
  15. Loudoun County (12-2)—Edged Riverside this afternoon, 36-30. On the road against Park View and Woodgrove this week.
  16. Loudoun Valley (10-1)–Looking stronger and stronger. Lots of girls contributing for Valley, which has a chance for great things this year.
  17. Madison (10-6)–Look who is on top the Concorde early on, just like the Warhawk guys. Need to develop better consistency, but they’re always going to play tough defense.
  18. Freedom-South Riding (11-3)–Looking forward to see how Freedom does in the re-match with Tuscarora. Have the Eagles improved?
  19. West Potomac (10-5)—Guards are still inconsistent, and thus still is the entire team. Still have a high ceiling.

Don’t forget–Lake Braddock (9-5), Osbourn Park (9-6), Episcopal (8-3), South County (9-5), George Mason (10-4), Oakton (9-7)
