5. Atholton (10-5, 12-5)

The Raiders have been one of the more interesting success stories this season. They've already won more games in county play than last winter, and with a few very winnable games on the horizon, coach Julia Reynold's team could be a major player down the stretch. Chelsea Mitchell continues to make her case to be an all-county selection, while Sage Mayhew, Kalere Caldwell and Margaret Tatum also go on scoring sprees than can change the outcomes of critical games. Atholton's next two games are against teams with sub-.500 records. The final two county games on the schedule also come against clubs the Raiders have already beaten this season. It's very likely this team can win out, meaning this season has the makings for a league championship photo finish. Next two county games: vs. Glenelg (Feb. 3); at Wilde Lake (Feb. 6)
